Which gtx 560 ti? Gigabyte or Asus.

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I'm looking @ around 225 dollars for a graphics card, meaning radeon 6950's also in the question. Specs are i5 2500k and z68 mobo, w/ plans to overclock.

Here is the gigabyte 560 ti and ASUS 560 ti. if there's another card you feel like near that price (not too high) please chime in thanks.

Edit: 1 vote Asus. Price point wink.gif. Though still would be cheaper with the MSI Fermi xD.

Well depends on your display. In higher display ratios or with eyefiniti the 6950 benchs higher lower ratios and single monitor 560 wins.

You shouldn't.

Selling point for 6950s is the 2gb memory option. Definitely grab the 560 Ti, I'd recommend spending a little more for a non-reference Twin Frozr II or Direct CU II model. Might be able to overclock those a little more and lower temps are always a plus. thumb.gif

EDIT: I'm so sorry! I didn't realize you posted the DCII! of those two in the OP, the Asus wins. I'd still recommend looking at an MSI Twin Frozr II or the Hawk model if you want. I have the hawk and the OC is very nice, and the card stays very cool. Looks like it is in your price point too.
