    Hey all, wanted some of your input on best upgrade options for me. I got a $200 Newegg gift card for Christmas. So I want to best bang for the buck. I was looking at the GTX 560 1GB, but not sure if it would be that big of an upgrade for me. I mainly play Skyrim and do photo editing in Lightroom. Here's what I found, what do you think?

    Correct me if i'm wrong, but i believe a 560 is the same performance as a 460.

    Personaly id save the gift for a while till the 600 Series are out.

    Thanks for the feedback guys. I'm going with your recommendation on the Ti version and found this.

    For only a bit more, I can get 2GB memory. Only thing is I will need to buy a new PSU, my 500w won't cut it with this card lol. Oh and one more question, you think my Core I5 will fair ok with this card? I just don't want any bottle necking issues with the two.

    just putting it out there but why not a 570? I was recently considering a gtx 560 ti for my build but instead went with the 570 and it hasn't done me wrong! :) And because you have the $200 voucher as well it wouldn't cost you that much.
