GTX 560 Ti/560 Ti 448 cores price

Im going to buy a GTX 560 Ti for my PC but I saw how much better the 448 core version was over the regular one. But Im finding the prices kind of odd...


(EVGA) 560 Ti - 240$ -30$ MIR

(MSI) 560 Ti 448 cores - 220$ -30$ MIR
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

So Im wondering why the better one is cheaper? Is it just the brands? If so why is the MSI one cheaper then the EVGA one? Thanks.

PS: What kind of power supply should I get if I went with the 448 cores one? I was looking at this one for the normal one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... would that work with the 448 one also?

That's an obsolete PSU, and not a very good one at that. Only the new Rosewills (Hive and Capstone) are good. Even the RG series is acceptable. Five hundred to 550W would be enough.
If you're on a tight budget, this 550W Antec would be acceptable: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

For a system using a single GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores Limited Edition graphics card NVIDIA specifies a minimum of a 550 Watt or greater power supply that has a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 38 Amps or greater and that has at least two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

The Rosewill Performance Series 600W (RP600V2-S-SL), with its combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 35 Amps and with one 6-pin and one (6+2)-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors, is insufficient to power your system configuration with a single GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores Limited Edition card.

I was thinking of getting a second GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores Limited Edition to SLI since I can get one for $169.99 CAD After $40 Mail In Rebate.

The EVGA model has always been more expensive than their competitors.
