Alright, so I am trying to find the best graphics card for me for <=$250, i found a few on Tigerdiret and by comparing the specs it almost seems like the cheaper one (also not the ti) is better?! heres the link to the two, tell me which one you think is better. Thanks!

The first one (GTX560) has 336 processor cores, the 2nd one (GTX560Ti) has 384 processor cores, and that is why it is better. The clock speed has an effect on performance..to a point but the card with more cores will usually perform better
This one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... beats them both because it has 448 cores and a 320 bit memory bus (the others have a 256bit memory bus)

Not sure what spec's you were looking at but the only thing that was better on the 560 was that it had 2gb of video memory. All of the other spec's were higher on the 560Ti and the core clock was at 900mhz while the 560's core clock was at 850mhz. The processor cores on the 560 were 336 while the 560Ti had 384 so for $10 it's really a no-brainer to go with the 560Ti.

BULLDOGNINJA, I'm using an EVGA GTX 560 Ti (not superclocked version) for gaming on one of my computers and I am well pleased with its performance.
