CUDA Cores 448

asus (235$)

It is two tiers higher. Or get a 7850.


what about the effective memory clock? its far less than the 560s, will it make that much of a difference having less?

If you are gaming at 1080p, and you are spending $200+, go for a 2GB card. GTA 4 benefits from it as well as a few other popular games like Skyrim if you are using the high res texture pack, and BF3 runs a bit better as well.

Edit: Oh and to answer your question about the Effective Memory clock, the 7870 has a higher memory bandwidth. The 560Ti is about 128GB/s, the 7870 is about 153GB/s.

The 7870 and 7850 are both far stronger than the 560ti. You could also look at a 660 if you can find one for about $210.

No, that is overpriced, get a 7870. Maybe $220 would be worth it.
