6950 is the same performance as a 560ti.

@OP Like others have said go for water cooling or something dont give up that beast just yet. Or if your set on it, then offer in the for-sale thread you wanna trade someone.

cheaper than another card of course, but almost as much as a typically overpriced water block

$80 is crazy for 2 fans, some copper and probably aluminum

if you had a suitable base from say a stock cooler, you could A-Team mod one with 3-4 aluminum cans, and some rad pipe from and old fridge or air conditioner, and a good fan or 2

didn't see anyone posting a amd/ati card suggestion so I will start, HD 6870 offers similar performance as 560 Ti and it can also overclock pretty well. XFX 6870 costs $165 AR on Newegg to just give you an idea. Unless you're into folding and PhysX then giving AMD a try would be a good idea for price/performance segment.

Edit: my 6870 runs about 70C in BC2 with 30C ambient.

Get an AXP (version 2 just released) to cool it. Mine doesn't go above low 60's (stock clocks) while playing demanding games with 99% GPU utilization.

If you were to get a 560 hawk you could overclock it to 570 performance which is basically a 480. plus the hawk/tfII cool wonderfully.

The 480 is not that inefficient. When you consider that the GTX 570 has a narrower memory bus and less memory, it's not only due to improvements on the core (it has a 32 Mhz higher clockspeed) that it uses less energy.

The GTX580 uses even more power, but now nobody is complaining because it has a better stock cooler, and the AXP has been on sale for quite a while now. If the AXP had been available at launch, most people woulnd't say what they said. But that is just how it goes. Now cards come from vendors with much better coolers than they used to, like the DirectCU, TwinFrozr, Windforce, because cards are using more power than they used to. Even the top of the line ATI cards.

As to the GTX560, if you overclock a GTX560 to the levels of a GTX570, it will use more power than a GTX570. Every review says that!

Having said that, I'm back to my initial suggestion, OP, get an AXP.

The 1GHz 560 Ti actually beats the 480 in the majority of their game benches.

Same thing as above. An overclocked GTX560 uses a lot of power and puts out too much heat. Better to get an AXP for his GTX480.

There are games at 1080p that use more than 1GB of memory, in those the GTX560ti will not win, and it's not prepared for future games either. Adding to that, a 1GHZ 560ti is on it's limits. With a GTX480 and an AXP he still has room to overclock, which he can do in the winter, if he wants.

On that note, even WC would not help. The heat would still get dumped from the rad. I have a GTX480 in one of my systems. It does get very hot but I can't complain about the performance.
