The bottom one has the larger amount of 448 cuda cores but also has a lower core clock, shader clock, and memory clock.
I plan on using the lucidlogix as well.

I have an i5 2500k
asus p8z68-v le
8gb ram
hx650 corsair psu

thanks!

    The 448 core is faster, it's near in performance to the 570.

    However, that price is really close to a 7850 which is comparable in performance but has much lower power consumption and higher overclockability.

    Assuming I do not plan on overclocking my gpu, and that I will be using lucidlogix (for lower power consumption) would you reccommend the nvidia over amd gpu? I guess I would prefer to stay with nvidia from various things I have read in the past. Would one of the 384 cuda core 560 ti that I linked earlier be any better in power consumption?

    Thanks

    not to mention also, that I like EVGA's warranty, and I have one of their 9800gt cards now, never had a problem. Afraid to branch out to other brands...
  4. Definitely the 448 cores model. Only $10 more for 64 additional cores. Where else are you going to be able to invest $10 for that big of a return in performance? Especially gaming performance. For $10 more it is not a hard decision at all.

    Ok, so the 560 ti w/ 448 core vs say an hd7850 w/ 1 or 2 gb of ram? I've done alittle reading and it seems the 7850 is definetly the favorite over the 560 ti
