Which GPU to upgrade to

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hello

I am looking for an upgrade and not sure which of the following to choose from:

Gainward GTX560 TI GS 1024MB/256bit DDR5
Palit GeForce GTX 560 2GB/256Bit DDR5
Or GTX 470 with some higher specs but older generation

Thanks

Palit GeForce GTX 560 2GB/256Bit DDR

You will want the extra Vram for 1080p gaming and since alot of games like BF3 are eating it up

I've got a MSI GTX 560 Ti and I love it, I havent played BF3 but I played BFBC2, Crysis 2, DiRT 3 all at 1920x1080 with very very respectable framerates.

the 560 non ti is much slower than the 560ti but the non ti has 2gb which is essential for BF3 and much later games

Can you link to a site reviewing the 560 (2GB) and 560 Ti so I can make a decision?

Also, I play on a 24" LCD.

Unless you're planning on playing at a resolution above 1080p (with the settings cranked up) you really won't have a need for 2GB of VRAM.

I wouldn't recommend buying a 2GB 560 unless you're planning to run SLI. On its own, you're more likely run into a GPU bottleneck before VRAM becomes an issue. But, with two, you can actually make use of the larger frame buffer.

You should really fill in your system specs so people can give you more detailed advice.

In that case get the 470, I got a 470 on my rig and its your only hope for no bottle neck on the cpu

The 470 and 560 or 560 Ti are similarly priced

I might as well get the 560 as its newer and uses less wattage, and I understand performs better than the 470
