I am feeling some buyers remorse with my 560 ti, should I? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
The big question is this: Are you happy with it? Do you feel you paid a good amount for the performance you are receiving?

If the answer is yes, then stop worrying. With anything, but computers especially, there is always going to be a better, card, better deal, cheaper price, etc. When you finally find the ideal card for 50% off and buy it, someone will offer to give you one. It is an inevitable part of Murphy's law, I'm afraid. But if you can be happy with your purchase just stop thinking about woulda, coulda, shoulda.

I got my 560Ti after owning a 470. So I had a slight performance drop. But very little. And I think in more recent games the 560Ti may actually beat a 470 by a couple FPS. So i was kinda disappointed, but the power draw and 10-15c less temps at idle and 30-35c less temps at load eased my mind on the choice. So it just depends on your situation. But I would def not feel remorse. Especially if you ever decide to get another and SLI.

Oh yes I know. It would be especially stupid for me to complain about how much better the radeon 7000 cards are compared to my 560 ti. I just wanted the best bang for the buck and I feel that the 6950 might have been a better choice. I shouldn't be one to complain though I got my 560 ti with a $30 rebate (I actually just got it in the mail today) and batman arkham city for free.
