I was looking to upgrade my graphics card and was wondering which of the two (EVGA Nvidia GTX 650 Ti 2gb SSC or Asus ENGTX560 DCII) would be a better choice seeing as how they are pretty much at he same exact price point. I have used EVGA cards before and loved them, and it also seemed to provide more power for the same price. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

I'd +1 the GTX660 recommendation, but for the two you're looking at, that's an interesting question. Although the GTX650 Ti looks better on paper, the GTX560 seems to have a very tiny lead in reality. But so close, they're effectively the same speed. The GTX560 is also a 2GB model right? I'd also prefer EVGA over Asus.
660ftw is my first nvidia, but i say dont look at 200 mark look at performance mark. you get 50% more fps in games with 660factory overclocked for a 30% of price. afterwards it doesno longer make sense to go ti as there you would get only 10% for another 30% of price. so 660 is the perfect performance price you can get.
if budget is issue go with 2gb i barely managed to max out 2gb of vram in skyrim with high textures, so you should be fine
i had buyers remorse when i bought 5750 when i could get for 20eur more 5770 with 10% more performance but i could live with it. but 50% more performance is completly different. you can max out all games and get average 40-45fps on ultra details, meaning you get 35-60fps in games. in skyrim i get 60-80fps and its totaly modded with hight texture and enb
also nvidia consumes much less power than ati so if you have older psu that might have degraded a little nvidia is sure way. again i had ati for 16 years so i am not bashing ati, just saying
