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 guess the 560 is older generation and consumes more power so bigger energy bill and higher temperature in box. also couldnt you save up more and go for 660 ftw signature 2 the 2gb version. i have well the 3gb version but its a rocket and still 450w psu is recomended and uses only 1 75w power connector
2gb 239,99 version http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Hmm I will definitely keep that in mind but I didn't really want to go over the $200 mark.

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.

The 560 is actually a 1gb model. So I was leaning that way but was wondering what others thought or if they had a good or bad experience with either card.

Ahh well there's your answer. GTX650 Ti without a shadow of doubt.

Course not - you can buy whatever you want! I'd take the GTX650 Ti though. But whatever you prefer - it's your system :-)

Sorry, thought that was the OP. But yeah, get a Radeon if you prefer :-) I'd stick with this though, or step up to the GTX660 like revro suggested.

i was curious if it had to be an nvidia card because you can get a 7850 2Gb for $10 more then they listed the 650ti for.

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
