Extremely sad experience.

It was the 6800 series and 6900 series cards that really put me off ATI (or now AMD). They were hot and they sounded like a leaf blower. It seemed to me that took something from Nvidia when they released their GTX 480 cards that wasn't a good thing to take. They too were hot etc. I couldn't be happier with my GTX 570's and I won't be changing teams for a long time to come.

Thanks for the advice. i would still love to hear from someone who has owned this card though.

I was late on this, but I still have to tell you, that the 560 non-Ti is the same exact card as the 460, just with different clock speeds. Overclock a 460 to the 560's clock speeds and you get the same exact performance.

One question though; does the model which i specified above also feature the 5+2 phase VRM or is a GTX 560 DCU II TOP exclusive (That is the model which comes factory overclocked to 925MHz, 1050MHz). Even though my model features a DCU heatsink, it is still stock clocked. So, is there any chance of that happening here ??

http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum/hardware-canucks-reviews/43366-nvidia-geforce-gtx-560-1gb-review.html

"To many, the GTX 560 will likely look like nothing but an overclocked GTX 460 and that’s exactly what it is….but with a twist. This “refreshed” architecture has been graced with a revised transistor layout for increased rendering and thermal efficiency so it can achieve some impressive clock speeds. Advances like these have allowed for a core clock of 800Mhz on the reference GTX 560; nearly equaling some of the most extreme GF104-based cards (e.g 460) on the market. Memory speeds have also seen a bump to 4Ghz. "

The point is u can overclock a 460 to reach 560 speeds but you can overclock a 560 further more (upto Core Speed: 1050Mhz Memory Speed: 4404Mhz), even to reach a performance above a 560 Ti (which you cant do with a 460)

Also, this is the comparison between stock 460 and stock 560, both which can be overclocked even further to the same extent

OP is on a tight budget. The cheapest 560 non-Ti on Egg goes for $50 more than the cheapest 460 on Egg.

LOL dude, I AM THE OP and like i said in the first post, i am getting my 6850 replaced for a GTX560 (non-Ti) under my warranty. The only problem is the lack of reviews on the model which is available with the dealer, for which i have given the link too.
