GTX 560 Ti is faster by 10-20% than the GTX 560. depending on the game. If you can get the Ti by a slight money increase over this card. Then you are good to go. If you will pay the full money on it then no.

here are benchmark's between the two.

Depends on what you do with your rig... so what do you do mainly?

a 560ti is definitely a nice upgrade from the card you currently have. It competes directly with the radeon 6950 card and can play pretty much every game at max settings with solid fps (excluding metro 2033 at some parts).

I got one today and IMHO it's a great card for the money.

I have the 560 Ti thats not a problem, and no im not paying full price for it, i just play games, one of my favourites is assassins creed and call of duty, both of them games have a new title coming out in november and i want them to run nice, im not worried about it being the highest possiable settings, but at the same time i dont want to use the lowest, and i just want the games to run nice and smooth

Both cards will play those games higher than low settings. CoD is not so demanding game neither Assassins Creed.

the 560ti is about 20% faster. the 560 is basically just a 460 with a few refinements with same cuda count. the 560 does have a higher core clock than the 460, but you can overclock the 460 to 560 speeds.

IMO if your going to buy a 560, you might as well save you some money and buy an open box or used 460 instead.

Definately go for the ti if you can afford it, it is the better card.

Also forgot to note i want to use my 32inch full hd tv as a computer screen, a bit over the top i know, but i have other plans for my current computer screen, so would that work well with the 560 Ti instad of my current 5670?
