260 to 560 ti increase?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I'm really wanting to upgrade to a 560 ti and was wondering what kind of performance boost I would get. Also, how would my 260 do as physx ? I do know I'd be getting dx11 so that will be nice. Current 3dmark vantage score is P12879 at 4Ghz CPU so would could I expect with a 560 ti?

Currently looking at getting:

and

I want the psu so I have the option of SLI readily available / run physx card, and also just to have a modular one.

Your fps may increase by 40% to 55%+ depending on the game. So the difference will be noticeable. add to that 560 runs much cooler and quieter too.

As for the GTX 260 it will be a very nice physx card to help the GTX 560 Ti.

Get that one instead, or the MSI Ti Hawk. EVGA has a good trade in program, but I wouldn't pay that much for a reference card/cooler. The TFII (MSI) and the DCII (Asus) are cooler and quieter.

From what I can tell their program does not apply to cards as old as the 260 anyways.

HAWK is the best TI out there. highest allowable max temp and great TFIII although beware, it gets really hot at 1080p and above with high settings in games.
I had a 9800GT but did not use it for PhysX since very few games use it.

I would also recommend the 560ti Hawk from MSI, it's the best 560ti available IMO and comes with two free games right now. The reference EVGA isn't a bad card just the MSI is better. The Asus on the other hand, I do not like it's cooler, it uses mismatched fans and a giant aluminum heatsink both of which are less than ideal and strike me as a cheap way to do things.

The upgrade from 260 to 560ti will be a great one, and your old card will be an appropriate PhysX card if you play games that use PhysX, if not I would try to sell it.

EVGAs price isnt just for the card though. EVGA is one of the few companies where paying a premium for the name on the card actually means something.
My EVGA cards have been far better clockers, the service has been some of the best ive had from any company, their warranty is second to none, and even their B-Stock stuff is fantastic.

HAWK gets my vote as well though.
Its just a better buy.

another vote for the 560 TI HAWK.

picked mine up for 60 dollars off, puting it below the MSI Twin frozor II, and it runs like a dream!
