PNY 560 Ti vs EVGA 560 Ti?!

Hello all! I'm in need of a GPU for my computer, and with my current budget I came down to choosing the 560 Ti.

I was browsing newegg and found that PNY's 560 was $30 cheaper than EVGA, priced at $130 after MIR. I've checked and compared both cards but could not find significant differences besides the ratings and warranty.

I'm a newbie though, so I apologize if the difference is obvious but could someone point out why PNY is so much cheaper? Is it a less reliable brand? Slower in any way? NewEgg don't like no Skyrim?

Here are the links:

EVGA -- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

So yeah, please let me know if you know why PNY's so much cheaper! Thanks and happy Black Friday :D

What about something like a 7850 or even 7870 (if the budget can be slightly stretched)? Although the GTX 560 Ti 448 Core would be nice.
They're still last gen cards though. I reckon a 7850/7870 would do better for the same money (unless there's a special deal on or something).

Pretty much this - that 560 ti 448-Core Prototype linked is a stellar deal (one I was about to link you to, as well!), but also know that 7850s (which outperform the 560 ti) are also on sale right now. If you can't extend past $160 post-rebate, here's a Sapphire Flex 7850 1GB for $164, and an XFX Core 7850 1GB for $159. If you'd rather spend a little more for a better framebuffer, there's a PowerColor 7850 2GB for $175, and an XFX Core 7850 2GB for $184.

Hey thanks for the quick replies and suggestions guys, greatly appreciated!

The reason I went with the 384 core is because I might go SLI in the near future (can't SLI 448, could I?) and I am on a very tight, strict budget. (~$650+/- thanks to BF sales!) The 7850 hadn't even occurred to me (ATI newb) and they look amazing. I think I'll revolve my build around that actually, so thanks!

My specs (soon to be!):
-Either i5-2500K or FX-8150
-Either EVGA P67 or GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3
-Ripjaws 1600 2x4GB
-Corsair TX650 V2

I'm sure if I play around with the CPU/MB combo a little bit, I can squeeze the extra $40-50. But currently as of now, I can only afford ~$130 on GPU and at MOST $180 only because they're on sale!

Thank you guys for your time!


***What's the difference between these 7850s besides memory?

And forgot to get this answered lol, is the PNY from my op worse in any way than the EVGA based on specs or anecdotes? Thanks again!!
