Should I get a 570, or SLI 2 560's?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I'm preparing to do a massive revamp of my system, 90% of the parts are getting replaced.

Now, I'm looking at a few 570's, which I like, but I am running a Palit 560Ti with 2GB GDDR5.

Unfortunately, they're out of stock, and I can only find one other 560Ti with 2GB of ram, this one:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130683

Will it SLI with my Palit, or am I going to have a massive headache? Also, what is the difference between the 560 and the 560Ti? Could I pair a superclocked 560 to my Ti, or is that asking for trouble?

Your not looking at a huge bump getting a 570. You could sell your 560 and put that towards a 580. Or get a second 560 like you said. The evga should work fine. Do not the non ti its a different card.

Also your Palit is available at amazon.

Ok, so it is available....but the EVGA is about twenty bucks cheaper.

Is there a major bump going from the 560Ti with 2GB to a 580?

I'm going to be pushing two 27" BennQ M2700HD monitors. (Unless there's something better within that price range, and that size)

Going from a single GTX560 Ti to a GTX580 will bring about 20% more performance.
Going from a single GTX560 Ti to two GTX560 Ti for SLI will bring about 32% more performance.
In other words, GTX560 Ti SLI is about 12% faster than a single GTX580.

If cost is taken also into consideration, I would think a pair of GTX560 Ti is a better choice.

Thanks for that link.

Now, will the EVGA card SLI with the Palit, or should I get another Palit?

It won't matter. Just make sure the frame buffers(Memory) are equal in size.

They're both 2GB cards...

Alright, thanks for the help. Looks like I'm going for 2 560Ti in SLI, new experience for me.

The EVGA can SLI with the Palit.

As you have already noted, the EVGA is US$260+$8 shipping = $268 while the Palit is $293.

This $25 difference will buy you a better cooler but the EVGA has 3-year warranty (vs Palit's 2 year). It is a tough call.

So, I suppose it boils down to your budget. If you are money tight, get the EVGA. If not, get another Palit.
