You'll never know when you need that extra vram, and if you are going to be installing mods with 4k resolution texture packs and other visual enhancements, the vram will come in handy definitely. Also, the 448 core is a limited run graphics card, so if you want to sli it with another one in the future you may not because they won't manufacture it anymore. but you might find one used somewhere. They are basically binned gtx 570s that have things disabled in the gpu, much like the gtx 465.
You will probably have smoother gameplay with the 2gb 560 ti because of the extra vram, but you will have a higher framerate with the 570. In terms of oc'ing performance, the 560ti will overclock to 570 performance if you have a good gpu, and the 570 will overclock relatively to 580 performance.

This whole 'smoother gameplay from more vram' story ... that is a myth wink.gif

Either you have enough vram for the task at hand, in which case everything works normally (and having excess vram does nothing) or you don't, and then everything starts going in the crapper, perf-wise, the more vram your app tries to use above and beyond what the card has onboard (although there is a decent sized 'cushion' before this effect kicks in, due to caching technologies)

Ergo ... the only reason I'd get a 2GB 560ti over a 448 is if a) I was DEFINITELY putting them in SLI, AND b) I was running a 30" monitor, or Surround.

At 1920 resolutions, in a single-card setup, the 448 is unequivocally the better choice here.

Ok what I'm suggesting is based off a single 1920x1200 resolution or less monitor set up. Just FYI. I suggested this to another member just recently. You can make up your own mind.

If going with the GTX 560Ti 448 I'd stay with an EVGA GTX 560Ti 448 Classified or MSI GTX 560Ti 448 TFIII. Both also come with 6+1 Phase PWM as a non-reference card. Very over clockable. Great bang for your buck and better performance than an AMD 6950 2GB. Even when both are OC'd or unlocked.

Here is some benchmarks that show what stock versions of both offer. Give you a little insight in relation with each other.

BATTLEFIELD 3 DX11

451

CRYSIS 2 DX11

451

METRO 2033 DX11

451


You can see that even with less VRAM on single monitor a higher performing GPU is doing better than a less powerful GPU with more VRAM. The bottom line is what's the added performance worth to you.


EVGA GTX 560Ti 448 Classified $289.99 w/free shipping and free Batman Arkam City game = $289.99
MSI GTX 560Ti 448 TF III $309.99 after MIR $294.99 w/$7.87 shipping w/free Batman Arkam City = $302.86

Seems like the EVGA is a tad bit quicker or better then the MSI. Now to decide between the two.

Its just higher stock clocked. Im sure the MSI will do the same clocks. If you want to save money though the EVGA Classified is very nice.

I think I'll go with the MSI I really like the Twin Frozr design.

Purely anecdotal, but it seems like from what I've read, the highest clocks have been MSI cards.

Having tried both (TF and Classified) albeit on different cards, I think the TF is a much better cooler than the Classified.
