Best GTX560 for the buck?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I am really tight on money, so the best bang for the buck is extremely important.

Basically, I am trying to find the best GTX 560 or GTX 560 ti that is out there.
At first, I wanted this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130623
Then I found this one:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814500210

It looks like it has nice clock speeds. I really want the ZOTAC, but is this the best bang for the buck?

Which one do you guys recommend?

The 560ti is the better card, I'd go with the EVGA one and overclock it yourself.

I would get the zodac one if I was you.

The msi one is good but there isnt much between them so get the Zodac

I'd have to say the best bang-for-the-buck card would be this one...

It's about $24 more expensive than the evga one, but you get so much more in return. Significantly faster speeds with significantly better OC potential and significantly better cooling.

One is a ti, one is a non ti. Get the ti.. it's a no brainer. Much better card. Don't get a non ti, as you'd be better off just getting a 460. Basically the same card.
In progress.

Guys, the GTX560ti is far superior to the standard GTX560.

You can't just look at the clock speeds, you have to take the architecture into consideration.

As has been mentioned the Zotac is not a 560ti but just a 560. I do not think the EVGA 560ti would be a bad choice if every dollar matters but as mentioned, the MSI hawk is the better card and I might even say it's worth the extra money even on a budget.

To answer you're initial question in the title though of which is the best 560 nonti bang for the buck. This one is by far.

Not sure how easily or timely ECS pays their rebates (though since its through one vendor - Newegg - you have some recourse to complain to them), but this reference HSF model looks to be a good deal in a Ti.

$260 is too much for me. I am expecting around the range of $200 to $220.

What is the best bang for the buck GPU with only $200?
