gtx 560 ti or gtx 570?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I am in the market for a new gpu and I have a budget of around 275 dollars absolute maximum. I live in Australia (yeah, most of you are probably from the US) and I have recently been doing some searches on ebay australia for a gtx 560 ti and a gtx 570. I have found a good msi twin frozr gtx 560 ti and it's an auction, currently 150 bucks. Here is a link of the gpu - http://www.msi.com/product/vga/N560G...ozr-II-OC.html. the auction for this ends in 2 days and so far there have been 5 bids, making it a wanted item by a few people. I also found a evga gtx 570 HD (take careful note of the hd). basically this 570 does not have vapor chamber cooling and does not exhaust heat outside the case. link to this one - http://www.evga.com/products/moreInf...es%20Family&sw. This is also an auction, but it ends about 6 hours before the 560 . It's currently at 220 bucks and no one has bid. It's obviously not as noticeable as the 560 on the listings and i'm not sure if anyone has even looked at it yet.

So, my question is, which one should I at least TRY and bid for? Should I go for the possibly more expensive, and as some report, a gpu that overheats quite easily because of the lack of comperehensive cooling, the gtx 570? or should I try and get the much cooler (temp wise) gtx 560 ti, knowing that there is a possibility that I could get sniped in the last few minutes of the auction or I could end up paying more than the 220 bucks i could have got the 570 for? What do you guys think,

Between those two, the 560. I would never buy evga's 570 hd. It's likely to run pretty hot.

i'd think twice about bidding for the evga 570 hd...i've heard negative reviews on that card regarding heat and noise, and the fact that it is not a reference design card, it would be hard to find an aftermarket cooler if in the end you can't stand it's stock cooling. watercooling would be hard to find too, as i am sure that ek won't be doing a block for the 570hd, i emailed them and asked as i was originally considering getting one myself.

the 560ti is a decent card as i've heard. not sure how cards are priced in australia, but i personally won't bid anything more than $235 (ideally in the region of $215-225 perhaps). i've never bid for anything on ebay, and i don't really know how it works, but you could try and throw in a $235 bid in the dying seconds, and try your luck. i wouldn't cry over it if you were out bid by someone else, as i think anything upwards of $235 for a 560ti is pretty expensive

I also avoid the 570 HD at just about all costs, in addition to the weaker cooler and incomptibility with better coolers, it also has the VRM problems that effect the better reference design. It really is just a fail in all aspects, that's why they have been priced at clearance prices so soon after release.

Personally I would try and get a new 560ti with your budget but if you are comfortable with the risks that ebay brings with it then go ahead and do that, but either way the 560ti is a great card while the 570HD is most definitely not.

someone is selling a used asus 560ti on ocn, here's the link.

it's only a month old, and the price seems decent, worth looking into i'd say

happy 560ti hunting!

However i have the eVGA 570 HD it runs perfectly cool. like 67C at 65% fan.

I would still recommend the GTX 560 its better price performance.

Definitely the 560 Ti. I wouldn't recommend another single card either, the Twin Frozr II model is great.

Untill recently I was having difficulty deciding whether to get 560 TI or 570, i was originally going to go with the twin frozr III edition of the 560TI untill i saw this :
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...14&subcat=1010
I ended up buying this and its fantastic, runs very cool idle ~33'C load ~52'c (about 70% fan).
It hasnt dissapointed, so far able to completely max out BFBC2, Crysis 2, SC2, DA2 ~70 FPS. Im from UK so it may be out of your price range i looked at a currency convertor and it seems around $400.

If this is the case then i think you should go 560 TI Twin Frozr edition, seen some great overclocks on it aswel =)
