2 GTX 560's or a GTX 570? - Page 4

post #31 of 42
Thread Starter 
Ok so im kinda confused on the whole 460 vs 560 debate. Im looking at 460's on newegg and they are very near the 560 in price. I have found an evga 560 for $184 and im looking at 460s that range from $170 to well over $200. I would have thought that since the 460 is a generation below the 560 it would be much much cheaper. Basically Im going with an I5-2000k and I was willing to spend $370-$400 on dual 560's. With that budget, what is my best bet in terms of GPU. I really havent kept up with the hardware scene since I baught my 8800gtx and e6600 4 years ago.

Catching the 460 on sale with rebates is key.

You mean this?

560 = 460

560 ti > 460


This is the type of 460 you should be looking at:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127518

$157 AMIR

These are ti's which are the only 560s you should probably consider.

Don't forget that there is a difference between the 560 and the 560Ti. Like said a few posts earlier, the 560 is equivalent to the 460~, but the 560Ti, is much better than a stock 460. Well, at least 15-25%.

Thinking about shelling out the extra cash to run a couple 560TI's in SLI. My question now is how does that compare to 460SLI, and the 580.

edit: And when I saw how they compare I mean from a value/performance perspective. Is it worth paying extra for the 560TI's over the 460's.

I run EVGA GTX560TI SC SLI. They are amazing. For a little trick to save a huge amount of cash on them shoot me a PM.

They should be better than both the 460 SLI and the single 580, I recall seeing something which suggested about a 10% improvement over a single 580.

Personally, I'd go with the 460 SLI unless you get a real deal on anything else. I would have done, as I said before I managed to bag a 560 Ti with 15% discount, so I couldn't really pass that one up.

Yes it's not as future proof, but that setup will eat anything you can throw at it now and then some.

The other thing to factor in I guess is the other advances made on the 5XX series, primarily if you are air cooling then they do tend to run cooler than the 4XX series. Plus, cooler tends to mean quieter - whether this is a factor or not in your decision is up to you.

Keep in mind that if you are going SLI and your board forces you to put both cards right next to one another, that you should probably check out whether the card vents into or out of the chassis; with venting outside of the case being the better option in a SLI environment.

Ultimately the money is yours to part with, but moving from an 8800 series to any of these 3 setups will give you a real nice boost; though to be fair the 8800 series is not a bad card.
