How much for the 560 gtx ?
In my opinion there're better options like the 7850 from amd or the 660 gtx from nvidia.

You can fit with a 600$ budget a 660 gtx which is much better than the 560 non ti.

Preference isnt worth throwing money away on worse performance

a Radeon 7850 is a much better card in every way and some are cheaper than that

But i heard ati driver were really bad compared to nvidia... Are drivers important for gaming performance/compatibility. Some games run with physix, but ati cards don't have physix

I don't understand why people have problems with AMD drivers, I've never had any major problems with drivers from either manufacturer personally. A friend of mine has actually had far more problems with Nvidia than AMD.

They are right as well, the HD 7850 2GB is a lot better. It consumes far less power and performs a bit worse than the GTX 570, a lot better than the GTX 560.

What about a 7850 1gb for 170$ ? What is the main difference between 1gb and 2gb ?

A CX430 is enough, if you can pay the parts in ncix.ca (from canada), it's worth, the corsair cx500w is terrible overpriced in newegg.ca, in ncix you can get a xfx 450w (made by seasonic) for much less, if not good luck with your build.

Yeah the CX-430 is enough for the i5 + GTX 660. Your max power draw from the PSU will be something like 200-250W.
