My System Specs

Default GTX 560Ti 1GB or GTX 560Ti 2GB

So like title , I am wondering which would be a better card.
one is a GTX560Ti 2GB PCI-E Palit and the other is a evga GTX 560Ti 1GB
Would the Palit 2GB card perform better then the 1Gb
Was wondering what you guys think.

Thinking of replacing my Gigabyte GTX 470 OC card for one of these.

Thanks in advance.

Depends on the resolution you game at. If you are on that 22" monitor in your specs, you're not likely to see any gains in performance at that resolution. The extra memory normally only helps at the highest end resolutions.

And to be honest, I don't think you'd see much of a difference between a 470 and a 560 Ti. Check the review here, your 470 should power through everything at 1680x1050. NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti Roundup: ASUS, EVGA, Gigabyte & MSI

Check that review, and it depends what you are playing on it. If you are noticing laggy FPS, then it might be worthwhile. But I can't tell the difference between 85 and 100 FPS, and neither can most casual gamers. I know my 470 was great except for Metro 2033. The only reason I upgraded was one of the reviewers needed to buy another 470 for SLI testing.

470 is a good card (hot but a good card), I just got gtx 560 ti's and I do notice a bit of a difference but not a ton. Mind you I havn't oced or anything just all at stock.

You might be better to wait for a killer deal on a used card before buying a new one. Although your 470 is losing value fast I only had offers of like $150-$180 on mine.

470 is going to be pretty close to the same performance as a 560ti. Wouldn't do it if I were you.
