Well folks I have made up my mind and will be buying the 2gb galaxy gtx 560 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814162085 its $80 cheaper than the 7850's and with an overclock should be damn close to its performance and wow isn't she a beaut.! Thanks to everybody who voted and commented:, Now somebody close this god forsaken thread already!!!

why oh why?

you could have got a 560ti at that pricepoint. the 2gb vram on a regular 560 is useless. You'll never come close to needing that much vRAM on a single monitor with anything that card can do.

that's what i read that its useless but people on here were making a big stink about needing it. and if i'm going to spend over $200 I'll just buy that 7850 i'm not so sure about zotac's quality I would like to stay under $200 a card i could probably save even more money by getting a 560 with just 1gb of vram to

That's $219CDN - $30CDN MIR, so under $200CDN after rebate, pretty good deal for a 560ti.

I had a zotac gtx 260 before I bought my gigabyte 560ti 448 core... I had no issues with Zotac.

goodluck with the new card, but 1 - 1.25GB is more than enough for most games at 1650 x1050 or even 1080p on a single monitor. If you start using multiple displays the extra RAM is probably needed, but I haven't run into any issues with 1.25gb yet with a single display.

yeah that's about $179 after rebate usd and is decent price but considering the other 560ti's cost upwards of $250 I have to assume its cheap for a reason. and I do want to run multiple displays. Plus for $250 I might as well just buy the 7850 for $259usd with a rebate down to $239 or a gtx 570. this is such a pain in the ass choosing a card

Just go for a 7850! You ended up saving money on the mobo by going ud3 instead of ud5 so a 7850 should kind of bring the budget back to where it was....

7850 supports up to 3 monitors in Eyefinity. If you get a Sapphire model, they come with all the adapters you could ever want, so you don't NEED 2 DVI ports.

Pretty much, yeah. If you get a Sapphire card though, it'll come with any and ALL adapters required. The others usually don't come with many if any adapters.
