Just bought a PNY 560TI

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
$240 @ Work.

Did I make the right choice? I feel it may have been impulse buying, but for the money is it a good card?

I almost went 2x 550TI for just $260

I was running a 8800GT an I built my new PC and didnt want to taint it, lol sounds dumb. Should I return this and get something else on the net in the same price range? Or should this be ok?

I plan to play TOR on it, maybe some RPG's like witcher 2.

I dont need full AA and AF maxed and I play at 1080x1920

I don't need to play on ULTRA SUPER NOMINAL GRAPHICS but don't want to play on LOW anymore and still want that nice 50-60fps

I went from an 8800GT to a 560Ti and both of us have similar systems. Runs wonderfully and worth every penny.

It's a fine card, though $240 seems high? Only a few games that you can't completely max out and get 60fps at 1080p. Anything else will still run fine at higher settings with some AA and smooth FPS.

It will be held back by your CPU in certain instances though.

Nah, you'd be better off saving the hassle of using ATI drivers!

myth ati drivers are fine.

The card you linked doesn't have a 100% chance to unlock. I think you made a decent choice, the 560 is like a rebranded 470 except cooler and uses less power.

$240 seems like alot though where did you buy it ?

I am assuming you work at Best Buy or something and you paid $240 including tax? If so, that's about what they are going for. I only hope that you did get the $20 Mail-In-Rebate that PNY is offering.
