GIGABYTE Super Overclock GTX 560 Ti

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I'm looking around and found this one on newegg $267.99 which is right at my max price and just wanna know if there is anything better cause from the looks of it, it seems to be a monster of a card for its 560's class but would like to know if there is anything better for that price.

Feedback Appropriated

Out of the box? Nope. That's the highest factory OC you can get.

The only real contenders are the 560 Hawk or Zotac AMP

Realistically though, all 3 will likely clock well. The Gigabyte and the Hawk have VRM cooling (IDK about the Zotac) so they can be overvolted without much worry.

I dont plan to do any overclocking on it myself when I get one.

Why not, if you don't minds asking. Install afterburner, damn near idiot proof.

And like what's already been said, if by better you mean a higher out of box clock, then no. Either that one or the msi both have nice coolers on them. Either choice, you're set.

I would get teh 950MHz version over the 1GHz version ... I've seen some people who got the 1GHz and it wasn't stable at that clock.

Personally I'd rather get the Hawk and OC it myself though. Love me the TF coolers ... they work great, plus they look badass in your case. Also (I believe) the Hawk has some additional voltage control options like memory overvolting that the SoC doesn't, which is cool if you ever do get into OC'ing ... which you will, because you're here on OCN so it's inevitable

I don't think you can go wrong between the MSI Hawk and the Gigabyte SOC you listed. As for the Gigabyte I would actually go for the 1Ghz version despite some people's not being stable, as long as you don't mind the possibility of having to RMA it. If you pay for 1 GHz you will get 1 GHz, you just may have to wait a little while for a RMA if you get the bad luck of an unstable one. However if you pay for the 950MHz you might not actually hit 1 GHz even overclocked and there wouldn't be anything you could do about it, seeing as the price difference is like 2% for 50 MHz seems like a safe choice to me. On that topic if you only wanted/needed 950MHz then in that case I would get the MSI Hawk as it has a better PCB and components. Good luck, hope you enjoy whatever card you choose.
