/should i stick with two 560's? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
personally, now that I am running SLI'd GTX 570's, it will be a very long time before I consider going back to the 'red' team.

My 560 SLI performs absolutely incredible. You just have to google a bit of bug fixes. For example, performance in battlefield 3 was really bad, massive frame rates but massive stutter. I read somewhere that turning off hyper threading on the i7 would fix it, and lo and behold, it did. I play on ultra at 1920x1200 with 4XMSAA and am at 60FPS at all times according to fraps (vsync)

batman arkham city with DX11 off (until they fix it) is always at 60 FPS and about 50% GPU usage per card at 32XQ anti aliasing.

Considering that if they are running right they beat a 580 and overclock much better, I would stick with the 560s hands down, especially having the 2gb models which are perfect for SLI at high resolution.

If your cards are mismatched 560s, sell the cheaper of the two and get another clone of the remaining one. It has been found that 560s often will not cooperate across brands, as there is no reference model they are all slightly different.

The only problem with a 5970 is that you will still have to wait for C-F drivers. If you do get it (it is a great card) get your waterblock asap, they won't be around for much longer.
