GTX 560 Ti... but which?!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, you may have read my other thread where i asked between an MSI or a Gigabyte version but since then certain listings have gone or prices have been raised. So instead of me providing the brands i want to hear from everyone with a 560ti and which one i should get

If you could also, provide a link to your graphics card from where you bought it? Im in the UK so cheapest would be great. Looking forward to any responses

You can't go wrong with a reference board. The stock GTX560 Ti cooling solution is actually very well put together.

As far as cards with aftermarket cooling go, I have really fallen in love with the EVGA DS models:

(NewEgg link posted for reference)

They look to offer solid cooling performance at low noise levels. (An issue with a few other designs out there)

Love the MSI Twin Frozr models (HAWK, POWER), but they are a tad more expensive due to their overclocking (which can be done for free) and their cooling method.

Anyway, EVGA GTX560ti for £170 from Aria.

Aria search for other 560ti cards

Google Shopping search for 560ti

Google Shopping search for MSI 560ti

PNY, XFX, MSI, DirectCU, Gigabyte. All good modders for graphics cards.

Hawk or the TFII/OC

Go for the Asus TOP edition, best 260 bucks i have spent on a gfx card in years. Debated between that one, the Palit one, and the MSI Hawk. After asking around about others experiences, glad i went with the ASUS one. Solid card, no crappy plastic heat shrouds and a solid cooler at that... not to mention it's pretty much the only one with VRM cooling. Was VERY impressed with how solid of a board it was.

Maybe this is also a worthy note, i actually own a 16:10 monitor so i would only play at 1680x1050. And would my 3ghz Q6600 bottleneck a 560ti?

Not in dual core games, but, I'd expect some type of a BN in the heavy quad core games like BC2.

I'm used to 1080p, though, I can't imagine going down from just 1080p to 1680x1050 would eliminate a bottleneck in quad games if you were still using a dual core.

You should aim for a better proc, even the lowest end quad.

Regardless, you'll still get a performance increase based upon how much of your current gpu/cpu is being used.

Well i only recently upgraded my motherboard so that i could reach 3gz on my quad core. I might consider another motherboard upgrade so i can get about 4gz with my watercooler. Its funny you mentioned BC 2 as i get about 60fps on medium with my 9800GT. This is mainly an upgrade to play BF3 on medium/high settings.
