Well, it's kind of odd question. I know more is always better, but...

I'm getting deals for 560 ti 1gb for $275 dollars here in India and 560ti 2gb for $320.
Now my specific needs are Video Encoding, Gaming mostly FIFA, NFS, a bit of Crysis and BF3.

My rig config is

* FX6100
* 8 gigs of DDR3 RAM.
* 500GB WD SATA II
* NO GPU wat so ever.

Now I'd like to continue with this system for more 3 years (hardly a month old) until I graduate and get a job.
so till that Which one would be better? 1GB or 2GB one?
is Zotac even worth buying?

Been on ASUS forevera~!

the zotac cards will be fine but I would def only get the 1gb flavor...$45 for an extra gb is not worth it. The typical 560ti comes with 1gb so I would stick with that.....out curiosity what resolution are you gaming on and how many screens?

I would get the 2gb version as bf3 will use the extra vram if use AA.

Can't answer that question cause you failed to tell us your monitors resolution or if your running multiple monitors.

If your running a single monitor at 1920x1080 or less, 2GB be a waste.

Resolutions at or below 1920x1080/1920x1200 will see no difference between 1GB and 2GB. Unless your running a multiple monitor setup at high resolutions 1GB is plenty enough for now. You will likely be upgrading to a new card by the time we start really needing more than 1GB.

Please refer to this image as an example:

i had them both. the extra gig of memory does come in handy above 1600 resolution depending on the game and the settings. the extra memory won't give you more FPS but that's not what it's there for.

1920x1080 for all games. I'd prefer full AA.
1gb then? Thank you guys.. wish I could select all of them as best answers!!

I'd sacrifice for that extra power I guess. That's what others seem to agree. Thanks for the reply btw! :D

Buy cheaper one and oc yourself. Only difference is with the factory oc you have guarantee at those core speeds, if you oc yourself and the card brakes and they know that your warranty is void. Only can't imagine they can know that you oc'd.

Thank you!

I'd go for the 2gb as it does not cost much more and it gives a little bit of extra breathing space for the future and if you ever wanted dual monitor displays :bounce:
