Yeah, at the very least it sounds like a good excuse to play with sli and worse case scenario I Nvidia's next gen is only four months away where I can spend what I would have spent on another GTX570. IDK, thats just how I'm trying to justify it. wink.gif
GTX480 sli is a solid solution especially when its quieter than my GTX570 with your zalman vf3000. tongue.gif You're getting your moneys worth out of those cards. I just don't think that would be the case for me if I spent upwards of $300 on a second GTX570 at this point in time.
This is the card, the cooling looks halfway decent but its a Galaxy. tongue.gif
Yep, it's Retro, as for that other forum name, what was I thinking:D
I am stretching out these 480's, which is unusual for me, but like you said the next gen is four months away.
I just didn't get swayed enough by the 580 to upgrade yet. Although I still lust over certain cards, like this one:
www.maximumpc.com/article/hardware/asus_mars_ii_review
Aw darn it, the egg is out of stock on them:D

I looked over that link at the egg, pretty good to find absolutely no bad reviews on the Galaxy.
From what I've seen, there just aren't many 2Gb 560's out there. Newegg lists a total of five, and only two of those are 560's. The others are two 560Ti's, and the 560Ti 2Win.
All of the other 2Gb cards are more expensive than the Galaxy. Even the 560Ti 2Win is listed at $520, which is $120 more than two of the Galaxy 560 2Gb cards!

The cooling looks pretty decent on the Galaxy. That large dual-fan design will be quiet and should work well. It also breathes better than a stock cooler when it's sandwiched beside another one.
Two in SLI should fit just fine in your FT-02:thumb:

ITs not because a gpu has a twin fan design that its going to be good and quiet... A lot of other factors are involved with that. I had a 560ti hawk from msi with the twin frozr 3 cooler on it and it was awfully hot and loud..

Always try to look up reviews and dont buy a card based upon one review saying the card is quiet. Read as many user opinions aswell and buy the card when you are 100 % sure

Oh no! GTX 560 (non-Ti) *suxs* compared to your current GTX 570.
Yes they will be faster in SLI. But not all games that support SLI. So If you play with only one GTX 560 even if it is 2 GB you will see a significant loss of performance. And this is the biggest problem I am worried about.
If you don't mind I advice for a second hand GTX 570 or wait until HD7000 series come out... The prices will drop even more.
You are using only 1920x1080 so I don't think the 1.3 GB RAM will bottleneck you.
Going from a fast single card to 2 significantly slower cards is not that wise move IMO.

+1 for gtx 570 sli > gtx 560 2gb ti sli

much more powerful! pick one up used or on boxing day

560 ti sli isnt all that powerful to be honest, I think 580 sli is definately the best setup even though it costs lots, I sometimes wish I had just a little more power from my 570s. I guess thats probably because I run a 120hz monitor, 570 sli would be good for a 60hz for good time.

He's not buying the Ti varient, just the regular 560, with 2GB of Vram.

The price of the upgrade should be considered, but you have to think of it differently when it comes to PC hardware. The 560 will not be a viable option for future games, which is why I suggested waiting for the 570, which will fair better against future gaming titles than the weaker 560.

It is, however, your money, and you'll be making the decision in the end. Whichever way you go, you should get more performance.thumb.gif
