How much do the Cuda cores or Stream Processors make a difference from:

336 Processor Cores
384 Processor Cores
448 Processor Cores

or are these cards totally different? I'm assuming the 448 will be a noticeable difference, but what about from 336 to 384. Here are some cards.

Yes, in this case all the cards you posted have the same basic architecture but differ in the number of cores. More is better in this case, but you couldn't do the same comparison across different architectures would be a different story.

How much? Take a look at Toms monthly video card article and check out the hierarchy chart to see the real world difference. In this case its not a huge difference but the 448core version is almost like a GTX 570.

Simply a GTx 560 Ti Vs a GTX 560 Ti 448 with various games and resolutions benchmarked. It even tells you in each graph if higher is better....pretty simple if you just read it.

Made more sens once I tried different cards. Thanks

The 448 comes pretty dam close to the 570. I'd be saving some money plus if I OC the card I'd be at par... Right?



Yes and from what I hear the GTX 560 Ti 448 overclocks quite well.

On another note the new Nvidia cards should be out within a month or so. If the rumors are true and there is no way to be sure yet they are just rumors the new GTX 660 ( or 760 Nvidia may skip the 6xx names ) should be priced at $300 and compete with the GTX 580. I am at the upgrade point with my GTX 460 but I'm going to wait a month and see how good the new cards are. If they don't live up to the hype the 5xx series should still see price cuts and I'll pick up a GTX 570.

Well, my laptop's video card died so I'm now stuck with the on board card (and can't do anything but surf the web). I'd figured if I bought a desktop this time, if same thing happened again, all I'd have to do is buy a new card. I've been reading the rumors about the 600 series too and the consensus is sometime around spring/summer... I cant wait until summer, I'll go mad lol. I've been talked into getting the 384 which is $40 more than the 336. Now the question now becomes, do I spend the another extra $40 to get the 448?

If I had to choose between the two today I would go with the 448.

What kind of PSU should I look into if I plan on getting a 448 and plan on OCing the card (and the CPU)?

For a single card a good 500-550w power supply would be fine. Corsair, Seasonic, PC Power and Cooling, XFX, Silverstone, Enermax, OCZ and Antec are all quality brands.
