New card to replace my SLI

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I've decided my 8800's just don't cut it any more.

I've got around £200 to spend (don't really want to go over!) on a new card. Ideally, I'd like it to be nVidia because I run three monitors so planned on using one of my 8800's to power the two spare monitors and the new card for my main monitor (1920 x 1200). I guess I'd go ATI if it was miles better, and/or there'd be a way to run three monitors.

I've been looking at the GTX560 Ti and seem pretty set on it; but just wanted to get some opinions before I jumped into it. Thanks!

That's pretty much it mate, I'd go with the twin frozr II for the aftermarket cooling, you might go a little over the £200 mark on that.

Like £30 over, but it's well worth the extra buck.

Yep, they are absolutely amazing overclocking cards too, which will net you even more added performance.

Which is down to the aftermarket cooling which is why I pointed it out

Oh, wow. Thanks a lot, man! All the 560's I'd been looking at were only 1GB, too! I guess the 2GB will make a load of difference!

The 2GB will make a massive difference at higher resolutions, and since you'll be running at 1080, yes, it'll make a difference when you have newer games that demand more texture space.
