Gtx 560ti vs. Gtx 480

I was wondering which one would be a better card for my gaming computer build.

This is the 480 that i am thinking of getting http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0386227

and this is the 560ti I was going to get http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0365382

Which one would be better for running the most demanding games? (Battlefield 3, Metro 2033, SC2, ect ect.)

Thanks!

PS. I will be getting an i5 2500k, thought i would add that if you needed that.

    The 480 GTX is a slightly slower 570 GTX, about on par with a 560 448. The 480 also has 1.5gb of ram to 560s 1gb, so form a performance stand poit, the 480 wins.
    But some of the other notable features of the 480 GTX is that will act as a space heater during those cold winter nights, and will probably melt your powersupply.

    If you plan on keeping those cards for at least 2 years, go with the 560 ti, you will probably save 25-40$ just in power savings (depending on how much you game) and extend the life of your PSU capacitor's by a few years to boot :P
