Hey guys,

Finally decided on what cards I may get and was just wondering what you all think of this. It looks so sexy:

Do you guys think these cards will scale well? And with 4gb to play with, I think these may top the GTX 590, in price and performance!

Any ideas?

As always any input is greatly appreciated!

You think? Hmm, I guess it's just personal opinion then, I'm not too keen on the red PCB, come to think of it frown.gif

Btw you won't have 4GB of vram, just 2GB... It doesn't work like that in SLI. Each card works on its own and uses its own memory they don't combine.

Also having 2GB of ram is only really needed if you're doing surround with multiple screens at which point the gtx 560s are going to bottleneck before it runs out of ram anyways.

Yeah I know, I'm getting another 26" 1920x1200, and the VRAM will help a lot with dual screens!

I'm not saying there will be 4gb in such a sense that it works using that combined, I just mean I'll literally get better performance with dual screening!

But yeah, are these cards going to last me, or should I sod it and go for a GTX 590!?

If you're looking to spend $700+ and not overclock then yah, the 590 would be a great choice currently.

As far as the SLI performance of the GTX 560's... expect roughly the exact same performance as the GTX 590 (if clocked to 900 core).

Most of my benchmarks are exactly what I see the 590 getting. Currently running 1920x1080 though, so I can't comment on surround performance.

That is one sexy cooler though, and yes... unfortunately that red PCB is just, gross.

Let us know how it goes.

Will the GTX 570 phantom greatly outperform the 560ti's though!? Cause it's a lot more money! And the extra VRAM will help with dual set ups smile.gif
