Blast you sexy Twin Frozr III.

I'm honestly still fine with my 5850, but it would be nice to have something a bit quieter (and haven't succumb to the upgrade itch in a long time lol).
Also been interested in trying out something from Nvidia, last card I had from them was a 6800GT

Have looked at plenty of 560 Ti reviews/benches and in all honesty they don't seem to be that much of an improvment to me (at my current clocks, I'm roughly on par with a 5870).

So what say ye OCN?

Personally i really like the gtx 480 prices at the minute, it outperforms gtx 560 and 570 for £200, and you could probably (I say probably, i assume its same layout at gtx 460), do a simple fan mod and get the temps right down.

I mean for the price, i.e 560 costs same as 480

True, the 480s are a good deal - just too lazy to get into any fan modding etc to keep that hog cool

its fairly simple candy, all you do is remove plastic cover, attach 80/120mm fan/s to the heatsink, tie down with cable ties and voila, you got better temps....mine went down from high 80sC to mid 60s load.

Ive been looking for an upgrade for my Geforce GTS 240, after alot of looking around and reading up I think im going to buy the MSI 560TI HAWK.

It seems it has great Overclocking potential (around stock speeds of GXT 570) and a large performance increase on what i currently have.

but its probably not worth spending on something around the same performance as what you have already got, unless you really want to

Overclocked it will reach GTX 480 performance easily. Temperatures will most likely be 20-30 degrees lower, about 150W less power consumption in full load and 0 noise compared to the 480 jet engine fan.

It's really a no brainer to buy the GTX 560 over any 4xx series card.

The 480 is the better deal, but not the better card in terms of everything except FPS.

That 560 is epic, and if needed, you can always add another in SLI.

The 480's in SLI on the other hand, unless you have an amazing cooling system in your rig, will nearly melt your side panel.

I love the 560, and it's a great card, but moving from a 5850 is hardly enough to warrant the purchase (for the average person). Either Xfire or wait till next generation.
