I'm looking for a video card with 2.0 PCI Express, that's $180 under, i have been looking at the 550 ti, gtx 460, or gtx 560, but not sure whats the most important for gaming, is it memory speed, memory clock speed, core clock, effective memory clock, also i hear some have a problem over heating, i will have a case fan, also here is my computer specs, also going to buy a 650 watt power supply, this is mainly for playing World Of Warcraft.
None of your links are working , can you just list the cpu and motherboard? The general rule is to buy the most card for the money you have available. The cards that you listed are all Nvidia cards , does that mean you only want Nvidia cards?
After posting all of the other cards I found this one which is much better than the 560 and would be the best choice , the 560Ti is a much better card and will give you very good performance and after the rebate it fits in your budget.
When you say this is mainly for playing WoW. Is that really what you will be doing? This matters because WoW is a processor intensive game, you don't need a crazy powerful graphics card to still get good fps/quality of image. However, if theres the chance you might be playing some of the newer/other titles.. IE: bf3 etc etc. Then that changes what you want to get. For WoW my personal suggestion is stick with Nvidia *tends to work better specifically for that game* and don't get anything better then the GTX 560 *have seen multiple posts/feedback it produces 200 fps in wow*. Anything else would simply be over kill. Why shoot a rabbit with an elephant gun

I just at least want to be able to run it on Good Settings, i may end up playing Diablo lll, later on possibly others, but i'm not worried about ULTRA, OR SUPER HIGH Settings. Thanks, everyone for the info so far, anymore info would be very well appreciated.
Also INZONE i have looked at multiple sites for video/graphics cards and i haven't found any radeon's that are 2.0, i know 2.1's will work with my motherboard, but not at optimal performance, i want something that is gonna work and still do a decent job without me having to upgrade a ton, i could but rather spend money on the kids or something
I'm pretty sure that the Pci-e 2.1 is not a big enough of a difference to make you upgrade any parts and will be just fine working in a 2.0 slot. You have to realize that the 2.1 and 2.0 cards will not saturate a Pci-e 2.0 slot and that both will work at optimum performance in that slot. People are buying the new cards that are Pci-e 3.0 and putting them in the 2.1 and 2.0 slots and working just fine. I have a X-58 chipset motherboard and I plan on getting the GTX 680 (maybe two) and putting them in this motherboard and I don't feel the need to upgrade just yet maybe later on if I see a cpu that I like, but I will be happy with the performance.
