1GB version

2GB version

2GB version is using default reference clock speeds and you pay more as it has 2GB of Vram.
1GB version is clocked significantly higher.
The one in your first post linked me to a 1gb card =/

But, having the framebuffer bottleneck with faster clocks peeds will be an astronomically bigger bottleneck vs having slower clock speeds with no framebuffer bottleneck. So I just don't know, I'm still leaning towards the MSI TF2 unless something amazing happens soon, So we'll see. I'm not ordering until the last second.
Again, dont get me wrong, the TFII 560 is a great card. I hit 1000mhz on the core when i had mine and it stayed cool.

It was hard to follow your post, but its getting late so it might be me. What cards are you comparing clocks with ("faster clock speeds/slower clock speeds" in your post)?

Also, I don't doubt that Booty's PSU would be fine. But for the same price you can get a 650W from the rockstar of PSU brands (Corsair), which is enough power for SLI 560's if you ever wanted to go that route. Sacrificing Modularity isn't a huge deal to me. I have built with both and it doesn't really matter in a midtower+ case.

Ah, I'll fix it. At least you know a 2gb 560 exists now, If it could be OC'd like the other 560's they could easily charge 280+ for it I think.

I'd get the SOC version, and save a bit to get a good powersupply after

Just my opinion, it'd be worth it to get a guaranteed 1000mhz GPU

Wow..... not sarcasm, I'm honestly surprised, That's actually amazing.
What software did you use to OC it ? I've never OC'd before.

Considering I'm currently using a 9600 GT I'm probably going to explode in my pants when I get my new card and see the performance.

Compare the 1GB Palit or any other brands 1GB version to the 2GB Palit version, 2GB version is using reference speeds but you gain 1GB of Vram, if I get a 1GB card I get significantly faster clock speeds.

That's what I was talking about in my post where I was talking about which would be the worse bottleneck to have.

I won't ever be doing SLI with this hardware, if I wanted to in the future I'd need to buy another 560 and a new mobo and I don't see that happening, but I won't rule it out.

Though, I clearly understand your logic that a 650watt PSU would prevent me from having to get a new PSU if I ended up wanting to SLI in a year or so. Though that would need 4 PCI-E connectors.

And yes it's late, I've been on the forums too long, I'm super ultra crazy excited about the upgrade, but I need sleep.

at low resolutions there won't be noticeable gains on 2gb version..but on higher resolutions from 1080p beyond..the 2gb variant will stand strong..the higher resolution you get the more spare vram needed for rendering..

i do suggest just get the 2gb variant for an extra cost for your future needs..its gonna be worth it for sure..

and you do need a nice PSU upgrade the least of a 600w true rated one..

My 460 hits 1GHz on air, so 1GHz on a newer card isn't that impressive, just saying.

Corsair 650w comes with 4 6+2 pcie connectors
Basically its a bigger psu, a better name psu with what I understand to be the best customer service in the business for the same price. Can't go wrong. Psu's are more efficient if they aren't at 100% load.

Also I use msi afterburner for overclocking the videocqrd.

Lastly, proof of 1ghz stable on gtx 460? That's not too common compared to the 560.
