So I'm in the process of upgrading/building a machine to play games like Skyrim, Witcher 2, Fallout 3 New Vegas, Diablo 3 and various Turn-Based Strategy games, so no FPS games. I'm looking for a Video Card that can handle the HD textures of the above games, my monitor is an HP LP2275w with a max resolution of 1680x1050. I bought an eVGA 560 ti 2GB card but I don't think it's what I want/need and am considering returning it and getting something else. Possibly a 560 ti 448? Any advice would be helpful. Oh I'm also upgrading my CPU to probably an i7 920/940.

GTX560Ti should be great at 1680 x 1050 resolution!
Should I be concerned about their not being enough VRAM for the HD Textures from games such as Skyrim? I hear installing those sucks up a gig or more of VRAM. Is this on all resolutions or just the 1920 that it does this? I think the 560ti 448 have 1.2 gig that's why I was thinking of that.
