I am building a moderate gaming computer for <$1000. I am trying to decide if it is worth the extra $50 to get the Geforce GTX 560 Ti instead of the Geforce GTX 560. Any thoughts?
Also, does the manufacturer matter on equivalent cards? I know to buy from a reputable company like MSI, Gigabyte, or EVGA, but is there a difference between those three?

Here is my setup:
8 GB G.Skill RAM
500W PSU
Gigabyte LGA 1155 Z68 ATX MoBo
2xSamsung 1 TB 7200 HDD

Thanks for your help.
If you are building a gaming computer why are you going with the 2600k , the games do not take advantage of hyper threading and you could save $100 to put towards a video card by going with the 2500k. It is just as good but dosn't have the hyper threading , but will still over clock and is a quad core.

EVGA 012-P3-1571-KR GeForce GTX 570 HD w/Display-Port (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card $339.99

You could get this card with the savings.
