Where is the logic in that?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Right now you can get 2 GTX460's(336SP) 1GB's in SLi for $200, You can get two GTX470's(448SP) for $300 +, But a Single GTX560Ti(384SP) still goes for $200 used? Where is the logic in that? I just dont get it >_<

I mean C'mon, I wanted to move on to 2x 560Ti's in SLi but with these prices I just could get 2 GTX470 for LESS and still stay miles ahead on the SLi560Ti setup. Sure they get loud and hot but for the performance many could compensate. I just dont get it how a higher performing card GTX470 can depreciate but the GTX560Ti a lower performer costs more. I dont mean to offend any one but I just dont get the logic, I just had to vent my anger.

The logic is single card solutions are often more expensive then an SLI one. Compare to 570s to a single 590.

Many people only have one motherboard, and if you get the 560 ti, you have the option of getting another one down the road, compared with 2 470s, if you don't want to go x3 or 4 SLI, you'll need to replace them both to upgrade.

I think you got me all wrong bud, they are both single GPU cards. The 470 is not a Dual GPU card. So we cant compare then to a GTx570 and a GTX590(Dual GPU Card). So I just dont see how the GTX560Ti having only 384 SP and option to do 2 way SLi be a superior solution to a GTX470 that is 448SP, has option to do 3 /4 way SLi and costs less?

If I get a GTx470 now I still have the option to get another one or two down the road. Same as the GTX560Ti. I really fail to see the logic behind that statement. And what do you mean most people only have one motherboard? Are we supposed to have multiple boards in one computer?
