the GTX560ti right now is the best bang for the buck card out their on the market. If you want extra insurance I would go for the 570.

Get the GTX 560 Ti it's the best bang for your buck of the three cards. I'm running mine at stock and I max everything with great frame rates. The 560(non ti) is probably just a little to weak to last a couple of years at max settings. It's doable, but you may as well spend the extra $30 for security. The 570 is excellent as well, but the 560 ti will max your games and keep more in the wallet so it's the best choice imo.

I'd go with the 570 assuming it won't brick on you if/when you try to OC it (not sure which models do/don't have that issue).

Going for a 6950 2GB would be a good choice if you need the VRAM
post #15 of 22
Guys he didn't mention any deals on the HD6950. Why would he buy a HD6950 when he can get a cheaper GTX 570 or GTX 560 ? Move your faboyism elsewhere.

And for pity's sake you don't need 2GB Vram on a 24" monitor. I play my games maxed just fine on 1.25GB.

For $60 extra I think the 570 is a good investment.

Although I'm an ATI fan and believe the HD 6950 is a good card (comparably better than 560Ti in some aspects), I have to agree with Wulfgar here. GTX 560Ti will be his best bet if he wants to have the best Budget/Performance ratio he can get. But I would get the GTX 570 for future proofing if he can manage the extra $60. Otherwise, go 560Ti!

I just saw someone mention the 6950 so I assumed it was one of the possible choices for the OP. If we're just talking about those three cards/prices posted in the OP, the 570 is the obvious choice.

As for power supplies, check out brands like Corsair, Seasonic, Antec, etc.

570 at that price is a steal, especially if it's a high-end one.

560 non Ti is a complete waste of money at full price, unless your budget somehow falls in a very small bracket and you don't like open box cards.

My vote would be on a non-reference GTX 570. You'll get more performance.

If you can't afford GTX 570 then the GTX 560ti is a great option but I'd always choose to go with the most GPU you can with your current PSU to maximize your performance for the longer haul.
