The cards up for debate:
560 Ti, Twin Frozr ii, 2gb - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127608
560 Ti, 448 core, Twin Frozr iii, 1.28gb - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127615
The rest of my system (relevant parts only):
i5-2500k @ 4.5ghz
8GB DDR3 @ 1600
Corsair TX650 PSU
Two monitors, one at 1920x1080, the other maxes at 1680x1050
M4 Crucial 128GB SSD
1TB Seagate 7200RPM HDD
I'm going to try to be as informative as possible as to what I want and am aiming for. I'd like to be able to max all games (save BF3, I know how intensive that game can be) at 1920x1080. However, in the next month or so I'm going to pick up another 1920x1080 monitor and would like to span my display across both (so I guess 3840x1080?) if possible, while still getting great results from my gpu. I'd also like to be able to FRAPS the majority of my games, but I am unsure as to the gpu's role in fraps (someone told me it was only based on my cpu+hard drive).
If the 448 core version had 2gb, this wouldn't even be a debate. But I digress. I'd really like 2gb vram (I know multi-monitor setups are typically vram heavy), but the 448 core's performance is great.
