Which card to choose?
I need to choose one of these cards but am not sure which. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 1gig or the EVGA Geforce 560 ti Superclocked 2gig? Thank you so much... /wallbash.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':wallbash:' />

The EVGA card for two reasons. 1: It's made by EVGA. Their support is exceptional to say the least. While their newest motherboards leave a lot to be desired, their GPU's and tech support is still top notch.

2: The EVGA card has double the VRAM.

Outside the USA EVGA's support is much the same as the others with a 3 yr warranty. That's one reason I have a Gigabyte GTX560ti.
The other reason is the Gigabytes quiet fans and efficient cooler.
2GB VRAM would be good. Gainward also do 2GB. Good cards (I've had three), but only two year warranty.

[i]Do not ask advice from anyone affiliated with Best Buy for PC products; they want to market products that are readily available to their stores. Although NVIDIA reference cards such as the ones normally carried through the store locations have good build quality, you sell yourself short with longevity on the customer support side of the fence. Resale is also lacking if that is a long term desire.

Geek Squad is good if you want to solve a Virus issue with a Windows reformat, but when it comes to hardware...stick to technical forums. Especially since some of us go through hardware like socks...[/i]

So we must hand it over to our tame PC tweaker. Some say he sticky tapes a block of uranium to his dinner before eating it and that he sucks moisture out of ducks. All we know is, he's called Hooks.

Best Buy is the only retailer that sells Nvidia branded cards. I'm sure they stand to make a little more profit from them, which is no doubt the reason they tried to sway you towards that card.

The EVGA card will be a better bet, mainly because of the extra VRAM.
