Default 560 questions

Think it is better to get a overclocked 560 or one with 2gb memory?

Get 2gb and overclock it yourself.

The brands that make the 2GB models seem iffy

Also there is a YouTube video showing benchmarks of a bunch of 560 TI's and the 2GB don't really show much improvement over the others.

Newegg.com - Palit NE5X56T01142-1041F GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Palit isn't iffy and Palit cards tend to be extremely overclockable. Also the difference in one and 2gb isn't going to be noticeable in some games, yes, and the resolution also needs to be considered BUT IMHO I think paying for an overclock is ridiculous. I think if you're going to put more down on a card you might as well do it on something you can't increase yourself.

Thanks for the help, but due to a few factors I have decided to get EVGA's 580 GTX, I plan on upgrading my CPU, motherboard, and ram soon and maybe a second card when I do
