Yes the GTX 560ti is a great card and highly over clockable. Most can reach 1Ghz overclock if you know what your doing.

Your 500 watt PSU can handle up to a GTX 570 comfortably. It can handle a GTX 580 but that would be too close for comfort in my opinion and might become unstable at full throttle.

Coming from a 9500 GT, a 560 Ti might make your head explode. Use with caution.

Thanks, i was mainly worried about my power supply not being able to handle it, the gt9500 is comming from my old computer

i quickly checked the 570 is still in my budget but all of the 570 cards have 1280 ram...is that good for 32 bit system with 4gb op memory ?

Yes the 1.2GB VRM is great for a single monitor 1920x1080p easily. Your system RAM has nothing to do with your graphics rendering. Enjoy.

This, VRM doesn't have anything to do with your system ram. But I advise looking into both the GTX570 and the 6970. One has more VRM then the other which would be the major difference and I think both are in your budget. But honestly cant go wrong with either.

IIRC, in a 32 bit OS, your VRAM actually counts towards the 4GB usable memory limit, which would actually lower the amount of system ram his comp can access by default.

Edit: Indeed, VRAM is counted and given priority over system RAM. You should really consider getting a 64-bit version of Windows.

On Crysis 2 I'm using 948mb VRM on a single 1920x1080p 120hz monitor.

But I'd agree you can look into either GTX 570 or AMD 6970 they are both great cards.

If you plan on getting a second monitor then I'd go AMD 6970.

If your thinking of getting a single 120hz monitor to 3D vision later I'd go GTX 570.

If you don't plan on doing neither than either card will be great and a big difference from where you coming from like Bootywarriror said. You'll be able to play games at maxed settings AA on to enjoy the full eye candy effects.

Ah, hadn't thought of that being on a 64bit system myself. Good input.
