I'll be buying a new graphics card to finish off my new build but I need a few suggestions before doing so.

I'm not a gamer at all but I am good for buying about one or two games a year. I have 2 8800GTS's in SLI right now and have basically settled on the EVGA 560ti as my upgrade. I'm currently looking for suggestions on which one to buy.

Choice #1

EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti DS Superclocked - $269 - lifetime limited warranty

1024MB GDDR5 Memory
PCI-E 2.0 16x
900Mhz GPU Clock Speed
4212Mhz Memory Clock Speed
NVIDIA SLI ready

Choice #2

EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti - $299 - 3 year limited warranty

2048MB Memory
PCI-E 2.0 16x
822Mhz GPU Clock Speed
4000Mhz Memory Clock Speed
NVIDIA SLI ready

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Immediately

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Some gaming, some media. Mostly general usage, but I want an upgrade that will last.

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: 2 x 8800GTS... Power supply is a 750W Corsair modular PSU.

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS:

Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz
Windows 7 "Enterprise" 64-bit
GIGABYTE GA-Z68XP-UD3 LGA motherboard
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (DDR3 1600)
2x nVIDIA e-GeForce 8800 GTS's in SLI
100 GB SSD - OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD2
60 GB SSD - OCZ Vertex Turbo OCZSSD2
1TB HDD for media/personal files
2x Western Digital Caviar Green 2TB (double backups)
Cooler Master 690 case
750W Corsair modular PSU
2 x 24" Dell UltraSharp 2407WFP-HC

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: EVGA.com - EVGA will only warranty GPU's purchased from EVGA.com.

OVERCLOCKING: Nope.

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1200 (dual monitors)

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Please only comment on what I have questions on. I don't want random other GPU suggestions. I've done a solid amount of reading and research and would prefer to hear comments on the cards I've settled on.

Anyone else...?

I never said anything at all about my CPU. I just asked that you included some sort of basis for your initial post.

The reason 2GB is better is because you stated 1920x1200 (dual monitors) The Extra Ram will help in some situations and as you said you want it to last as long as possible.
