eVGA vs Gigabyte - Page 2

post #11 of 21
Thread Starter 
Well I am probably going to pull the trigger on it later tonight. I got lucky and they got a new batch of stock today so I won't have to worry of it going out of stock.

Is $250 CDN a good price for it? It was the cheapest I found in canada so far.

Has anyone overclocked it btw and seen how far you can push the 560 ti DS?

I did notice the msi Hawk 560 ti had a bit higher speed and shader over the evga 560 ti ds.. though all of the msi are out of stock and looks like no new shipment has arrived. The price is almost the same I think the msi is $10 more.

EVGA is a good brand, but I would choose a different card than the DS. It is not the best cooler available. I'll see if I can find some reviews but its nothing like the TFII/III or Asus DCUII that work extremely well.

Yeah the reviews seem good in terms of performance, but a lot of people stated it can get really loud and the cooling isn't as good.. I need to choose a GPU tonight as the sales will end soon. Mostly been leaning towards 560 ti DS, or msi hawk.. they seemed to have the most clock speed and shader speed from the top 560 ti card I could find.

EDIT: I also should ask is the warranty for eVGA cards only in the US? As I am from Canada.

Well I pulled the trigger on the 560 ti ds.. I'm sure I could've gotten a little more cheaper.. but at the end of the day I think it will do well and the warranty is there too. Now I just hope my order goes through and gets processed. The GPU is the last part I need to start on my build this weekend.

EVGA is my choice for video cards and gigabyte is my choice for mobos. Really can't go wrong with either.

I'm sure it'll fine. I've never had a gigabyte card, but I have heard good things about their coolers.

I still like EVGA for nVidia cards, but I like to watercool, so the heat/loudness "issues" you mentioned aren't really a factor. The EVGA coolers aren't as much of an issue with the 500 series compared to the 400 series. I'm using the reference cooler on my 580 and it is fine IMO, it gets up to like 75C with the fan set at 70, which isn't loud. That's with it OC'd 100 mhz.

Good luck with your build, I'm sure you will like it.

From what I read about that DS (and I was looking to buy it myself for quite a while until I got around to reading reviews) it's really loud, still get's hot even though it has 2 fans and the build quality of the cooler is quite poor, it's meant to feel quite flimsy.

I would generally agree with this. Although the DS is actually not a terrible cooler. It has memory and VRM sinks, so it should make for a fair OCer.

The Gigabyte on the other hand looks pretty cheap (those are some of the flimsiest looking fans I've ever seen). I can't find reviews on it, but I'm guessing there's not much more than meets the eye there.

IMO neither is really a great choice. The EVGA is decent, but overpriced for what you get (you can find some 570s at that price), despite the awesome warranty. When it comes to air cooling, I think MSI and Asus have the best custom cards out atm.

That said, 560 Tis don't get that hot anyway, so if you're not planning on doing heavy OCing or running SLI it might not even matter. Any 560 Ti is a steal at $199.

Gigabyte.

I don't trust gigabyte anymore.

Odds are your 560 TI will be fine, they have an OK rep. I would buy EVGA though.
