My laptop died last night, so my urgency to build my computer has increased a lot. I am trying deciding whether its worth it to spend more on the graphics card or not. I will be using this computer exculively for gaming on a 1920 x 1080 monitor. I want to be able to play d3, skyrim, GW2 (when it comes out) all on high settings. Currently I have the 560 ti 1gb as the card I'm going with, but a friend said that I might want to spend the extra money and go with a 560 ti superclocked, a 560 ti 2gb or a 570. What do you guys think. Please help!
This card is in between a 560Ti and a 570 and will give you near 570 performance for close the 560Ti price. The addition on 64 processor cores to the standard 560Ti makes this card an improvement on ths 560Ti. It is a 570 but reduced a little.
I guess it will depend on your budget as to what video card you end up with and with whatever extra money that you have it your budget you should put towards as good a video card as you can buy , whether it's a 570 or a 560Ti. The higher the better.
Have you considered using the hdd from your laptop, and wait till the hdd prices go down? Personally I would get the ssd as an after thought, and focus more on how good a video card you can get. With a gtx 570 you could get very high or ultra settings on skyrim, and would get better setting on the other games when they come out.
