I should wait and see if an open box 560ti will pop up on newegg. If it doesn't in a week or so I will just grab a 560(nonti)

post #23 of 39

I think I would either go with a 460 1gb or a 560ti. I haven't seen any better deals than the EVGA that has already been posted.That EVGA appears to be a great one btw, just a couple of notes on that is that it has a warranty that can be upgraded to a 10 year for free if registered within 30 days of purchase, otherwise it's only 3 year I believe, and second it comes to about $200 after rebate and shipping.

Anyways I would go with the 460 1Gb as opposed to the 560 non ti because if I recall correctly OC hasn't been shown to be drastically better on the 560 non ti and it still commands a little price premium over what it should be just because it is new.

So like I said I would go with a 460 1Gb,

which is OC to 850 (the same as most 560 non ti) and a great deal at only $180 with free shipping and a $20 rebate or the http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130634 for $200 AR and shipping that was posted by windfire above.

I don't think you will be able to find a better card than that 460 for less than $200. Best of luck.

I guess I could save up a little extra for the 560ti but how much better it is than the 560(nonti)

15% better from what Nvidia says, that's reference too, the higher-end 560 Ti's can reach almost 570 speeds.

I'd have to wait like an extra week or two for the 560 TI but that's not too bad of a wait my 5830 can last me till then.

Like I mentioned above, if you can't afford the 560 ti don't get the 560, it's like $20+ more expensive than the 460 1 Gb I recommended, but the exact same speed, and they should OC very similarly too. If you can save up for the 560ti that would be good but both the 560ti for $200AR and shipping at newegg and the at Amazon offer about the same value for money, the 560ti is about 20% more expensive and just under 20% better. If you do get either of those cards then be sure to upgrade them to this 10 year warranty because they are both eligible for it. http://www.evga.com/articles/00628/

EDIT: sorry for not linking you directly to the EVGA warranty OCN has been breaking my links a lot lately.

EDIT 2: The 460 I linked you to has dropped in price to $170 or $150 after rebate, if you can I would get in on that, it's a great deal.

The 460/560 isn't that much of an upgrade from a 5830. The 560Ti is the lowest I would go if you want to see a real improvement over your current card

I would go for a higher card than the 560ti if I didn't have to buy a new motherboard also.
