Need to find a card for everyday use
Well I rarely game, so sorta put that in the factor, I was looking and seen this.
ASUS GeForce GTX 560 DirectCU II Fermi OC 850MHZ 1GB 4.2GHZ GDDR5 2XDVI Mini HDMI PCI-E Video Card - ASUS - ENGTX560 DCII OC/2DI/1GD5
Also this,
PNY GeForce GTX 550 Ti 900MHZ 1GB 4.1GHZ GDDR5 2XDVI Mini-HDMI PCI-E Video Card - PNY Technologies Inc - VCGGTX550TXPB

Would that be any good?... I would like to play on high settings on a 23" my res will probably be quite high as well. Should I drop on this? Or buy my mobo and sata cables till I have more till next month :)

Think this would be good for gaming on a 23" monitor? Or should I wait a month?

This post is really confusing.

I rarely game but you want to play on high settings.

Which is it?

A bit confused as well about what you want, but a 560 would be an excellent upgrade for you and great for most games on high or better at 1080p. Lots of people will tell you to go for a 560Ti (and it is better ), but if you don't game a lot the extra investment probably isn't worth it. I wouldn't go to the 550Ti if I was you.

Edit: here are some cheaper options for 560...you could always price match at NCIX for the first one:

$191 and $20MIR
ASUS GeForce GTX 560 DC 810MHZ 1GB 4.0GHZ GDDR5 2XDVI Mini HDMI PCI-E Video Card - DirectCanada

$188 and $20 MIR
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 560 Fermi 830MHZ 1GB 4.0GHZ GDDR5 2xDVI Mini HDMI DIRECTX11 PCI-E Video Card - Gigabyte - GV-N56GOC-1GI

$189 and $20 MIR
MSI GeForce GTX 560 810MHZ 1GB 4GHZ GDDR5 2XDVI Mini HDMI PCI-E Video Card - MSI/MicroStar - N560GTX-M2D1GD5
