MSI 560ti or MSI 570 OC

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I'm stuck between these two. I'm wanting it to be as future proof as possible but not too expensive. Right now I'm running an 8800 GTS 512, which has lasted me forever. But after running bf3 beta on low I've decided its best to treat myself to a new card before the release.

MSI 560ti with delivery is £190
MSI 570 OC with delivery is £280

£90 difference.

Any advice would be nice

The 570 will give you 10-15% more performance than the 560ti. Below is a comparison.

http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/330?vs=306

The 560ti is one of the best bang for your buck cards right now. It's a solid card and I can't strongly recommend the 570 over it. The 570 is good yes and it's a strong card alone and you can SLi it later if you want. Though the price difference might steer you towards the 560ti. Depends on if the price is worth the performance.

Consider the 6950/6970 if you want. They have more VRAM that helps depending on your screen resolution. Whatever works for you.

Also, welcome to OCN and fill out your sig rig info here:

It helps us see what you have and what we can help with.

Well right now my screen resolution is low (1280x1042) and won't be upped for awhile. I was going to hit the buy button on the 560ti yesterday but then I started to read that it'll most likely only be able to handle medium settings in bf3? I kinda want to get away from medium in games and hit the high side.

As for the 6950/6970. I've always been an NVIDIA guy so I really can't see myself moving over.

I figured you were a nVIDIA guy from you not even saying anything about he 6950/70. lol.

On topic: The 570 should give you the High settings you're looking for on BF3 and most upcoming games. For ultra you're looking at a 580. ^_^ But yeah, at that resolution the 570 is a safe bet. Though I'd look at getting a 1080p monitor. It would allow you to really use that 570 on high.

At your resolution you should be able to handle much higher settings.

For the BF3 beta (granted it's a beta and may differ from actual specs upon release, but it should be in the ballpark), I ran a GTX 470 with a Phenom II X4 955 BE and was able to run on high settings, low AA, max AF, at 1920x1080 and still achieve very good framerates

The price of the 6950 is very attractive, and the performance vs 570 does look very slim. Is temping but I'm not sure I could switch.

580 is deffo out of my price range. I'd most likely sli another card later on next year when needed. As for the 570, is the "MSI 1280MB GeForce GTX 570 Twin Frozr III Power Edition OC" a good 570 to go for? I know the 560ti version is great for overclocking to a good 950MHz +. Is the 570 version just as good for OC'in?

This is one of the best 570s out there, I own it's little brother the 560Ti Hawk

I highly recommend it, Cheers.

The GTX 570 overclocks really well, and competes with the GTX 580 even when both are overclocked (I'd know, I have both). However, price/performance is the main issue. I bought my GTX 570's for less than the price of GTX 560 Ti's right now, so makes the decision pretty easy.

At your resolution, go for the GTX 560 Ti, or even an HD 6950 (1 or 2GB).

If your motherboard supports SLI, then two GTX 460 1GB's in SLI can be had for $220 USD if you find people selling them used, and they'll outperform the GTX 580 overclocked.

That 570 is a great card. I would highly recommend it.
