GTX560TI, 570 or 480

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Im looking to invest quite a bit of money into a new GPU however im not 100% sure on what to go for. I really need something that I wont need to upgrade for a fair amount of time, and that has good OC'in potential.

Ive been looking at the GTX560 TI and it seems a good buy for the price, however, how much more performance will I get if I instead buy a GTX570 or a GTX480 which are about £100 more than the GTX560 TI.

thanks

On average the 570 seems to be about 15% faster than a 560Ti (according to Ananadtech). Overclocking the 560 can get you close to the same performance as a stock 570 but of course the 570 can be overclocked as well....

I'd try getting a good deal on the 480.

Or get a 6950 2GB. You can actually exceed 1GB VRAM by gaming on 1080p.

6870 is a steal compared to a 560 though, it's cheaper and about the same performance. (If you can get it on sale, there's been many good deals on this card lately)

The GTX 560ti is an over clock beast. If you have the money the GTX 570 is about 15% less performance than a GTX 580 at only 70% of the cost and almost compares to a AMD 6970 where they each win some benches.

As for VRAM - at 1080p having more dosen't equal better performance one bit. Everyone knows that, well almost everyone.

Unless you buy a custom cooled GTX 570 you'll risk burning it by OCing.

GTX 480 is not even worth mentioning.

GTX 560 is the smart choice.

and why is the Gtx 480 not worth mentioning? Its one of the best cards available for the price...

570 is best performer out of the bunch. I overclocked mine on air for 2 months and they worked fine. I eventually switched to water cooling.

Get the higher-end 560's which offer close to 570 performance out of the box, and even closer if you OC, and some of them are designed to be OC'd.

I would consider the MSI GTX570 TFIII, or a Asus DIRECTcuII if you look at good 570 with upgraded VRM cooling and more power phases...

If not, the 560Ti Twinfrozr, the 560Ti HAWK and other 56oTis are good cards....

right now the 560Ti HAWK is sweet!!!

i would go for the 480 its one of the best cards out there and will be for a few years.
