not sure....

the 560 is actually a fairly solid card... and the 2GB versions are rather nice...

but i would still take a 480 over one...

then again how much does a 560 cost in relation to the 480?

because 2x560 2Gbs would be nice

Definitely the 480.
280 = no DirectX11
And single GPU is always better preferred to SLI.

2x280 = quicker but no DX11.. so kinda pointless for new gen games



570s are unreliable and don't OC well due to poorly designed VRMS...

Also they have less VRAM... which makes a difference in high res or surround setup
What is your definition of not overlcocking well? I have two at 900/ 2200 up from 732/1900 both stock. Do I just have two good cards? or do people just disable ocp
