SLI 560ti or CF6950 TFIII or SLI 470 on water

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys my mate wants to take my loop and 470 off me. If i did sell it I have the option of buying his 2 TWIII 6950s that I know have been looked after well and draw less power so I could run them more comfortably on my psu but they have no warranty and ATI drivers r **** or I can get 2 brand new EVGA 560ti for the same price that will be louder and hotter and draw more power so I wouldn't have much less room for over clocking on current psu and they will be slower but they will have a warranty. Going down from a loop quietness is reasonably important when idling but in games with my G35's on I cant hear anything so it aint to important. Which will be better keeping i mind speed, looks, temps, sound, drivers and power consumption meaning room for over clocking on cpu?

If I was to do that I would end up paying roughly 240-280nzd extra to go from a full loop with a 470 on water clocked at 910 24/7 to cf 6950 or sli 560ti with a H70 cooling my cpu. The other option I can see is to not sell it and pick up another 470 with a block for about the same as the cost of the changes, and then pay abit more to get a better psu so then i can have 2 470's clocked high on water and still have a loop? You can see why I need some other opinions

470's

I love'em cant wait till i have a stronger Psu Overclock the crap out of them


Myself, I'm in the same boat, so to speak.
Running them sli, with a HX650 Step 1.
Overclocking them, i would like to have a stonger PSU. Step 2.

I'm stuck on step 2

Yea thats what would happen to me. SLI 470 clocked at my currents specs would be super fast but at stock it is worse than those 560's and they have enough room for a small oc

The 470's should be quite a bit faster at max clocks. 560 ti is kind of a downgrade... sidegrade at best.
