560 non Ti is a lower performing card compared to the 560 Ti, if you compare the cost of a 460 to a 560 non ti, the 560 non ti is literally like throwing away $50.

Yes, it does. 560 Ti's can get as high as $270, like mine, it's close to 570 performance too. It should also be noted that most 560 Ti owners own a non reference version too, which includes great custom cooling and a factory overclock.

For a single 1080p display setup, a single 560 Ti is quite powerful honestly, and so are the 570's.

I don't know anything about the 6870's. However, with my top end 560 Ti and low-end quad core I play BC2 at 1080p, Vsync on, 4x AA, 8x anisotropic, max settings except I turn HBAO off. I've never seen the game go below 51fps, I'm usually at 55+.

Get a used GTX 470. They go for $160 and are faster than the GTX 560 Ti once over clocked.

This. My 5770 stays at 60c pretty much all of the time.

That's a reference 560 Ti as well.

Then consider the top-end 560 Ti's offer near 570 performance, It beats the 470 by an even larger margin.

Clock for clock, the 470 is a faster card. I'd go non reference 470 and call it a day.
In progress.

newegg has this GTX 470

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130616

recertified , if anything goes wrong, gotta deal with EVGA warranty which i hear is good service.

what do you mean by non reference?

with a some extra $$ , would it be preferred to pick up a GTX 570 card?



for the HD6870's , i'll bring that topic over to the ATI thread.

Don't forget that an open box top-end 560 Ti would fit your budget as well.

Personally for the extra money I would go for the 570 but its up to you and your budget the 570s are on par with the gtx 480s

If you decide to go 470 that evga bstock link i provided in an earlier post has them for $160

edit here it is
