I have been convinced to buy my first ever NVIDIA GPU. Help me choose!

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
I have always been an AMD customer since my uncle works at AMD. However, their driver issues are really starting to piss me off. I want to give NVIDIA a try.

I bought a 6870 and it was nothing but driver problems. I have about $220 to buy a 560 Ti. Which version should I get?

I have heard lots of great stories about evga but they have like 4 versions of the 560. Does eggs have a good warranty and rma service as.well? Which one should I get?

EDIT: Newegg.

I would get this one. Its 220 after MIR but its the reference card so you can beat it up a bit more.

I'm selling mine if you're interested. It's currently pending to another member though.

I still say look for the SOC version from Gigabyte. 1Ghz Core Clock and 2Ghz Memory Clock from factory? How can you say no?

GTX 560 is a great card and good luck on it. Off topic, do you have a thread here I can look at to see your 'driver issues' ?
