Please advise on which 560 or 560 Ti...

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Upgrading for BF3 and MW3, will be playing on 1920x1200.

1. I will be OC'ing my Q6600 to 3.4ghz, so nothing should be bottlenecking me too badly with a 560 or 560 Ti, right?

2. For my use (and whatever future-proofing it will provide), in what order do you guys recommend a 2GB 560 Ti, 2GB 560 (non-Ti), and 1GB 560 Ti?

3. Which specific brand and model do you recommend? (I am pretty conservative with OC'ing things so I'd probably prefer to just pay the additional $20-$30 premium for one that comes overclocked).

Thanks in advance!!

Your CPU is fine; here's the info you need to make a GPU selection:

Thanks but I see only one 560 Ti and one 560, no different brands or models for them, and no 1GB vs. 2GB comparison

Basically I am trying to decide what brand/model 560 or 560 ti to get.

What I was trying to tell you is a 560 (regardless of brand, or RAM setup) isn't enough GPU (for 1920x1200 running high quality); get a 570, at minimum.

Turning down some effects wont hurt. A 560ti is good enough for BF3 at med-high. 2Gb Vram is not necessary, the Beta had Vram leaks and it reached 1.2Gb. You are fine with 1Gb. I went with a 560ti 1Gb for my bro's build. If you could get a 560ti 2Gb, I would get a 6950. If you overclock the 560ti to about 950Mhz (like mine), you have a better GPU than a stock 6950 btw. My 560ti DCUII runs pretty quiet and at okay temps with a 960Mhz OC as well. But, you could get a 6950, and then CFX, which is more or less the most powerful config you can do on a 750W (a 6970 CFX is possible, but I feel that it is pushing it :/)

Asus and MSI makes the best GPUs imo. But, MSI makes them a little better.

In my opinion, both of these 1GB 560 Ti's would be great choices:

ASUS DCII @ 900MHz (comes with a voucher for Arkham City, for what it's worth)

MSI Twin Frozr II @ 880MHz (runs cooler and quieter than the ASUS DCII)

Both ASUS and MSI have pretty good warranty policies and better coolers than reference cards, and you really can't go wrong with either of them.

2GB is largely unnecessary at 1080/1200p. BF3 is going to take a lot of horsepower though, so if you're set on a 560 Ti and don't plan on OCing yourself, you may as well get the best:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127578

These have the highest factory OCs currently available, though I'd personally recommend the Hawk as a lot of people have reported stability issues with the SoC. Still both haul, right out of the box.

Unfortunately they're both OOS

Wait for retail OP.


Edit: More than likely you'd need SLI to even run settings high enough that warrant more than 1GB of ram, consider that in your final purchase decision as well.
