Get a 2nd GTX 560ti?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So ive been 'future proofing' my system lately and upgrading to intel and getting an SSD, as well as getting a good motherboard.

I still have alot of spare of cash and thinking about another Gigabyte gtx 560ti as they are fairly cheap.

I will only ever use one monitor at a 1920x1080 resolution

Thanks.

For SSD, Crucial M4 is cheaper and some suggest maybe as reliable as Intel (it uses the same controller), same goes for the Plextor M3, Corsair Performance Pro and Samsung 830

As for your GPU upgrade, sure, get another one smile.gif some games need the extra horsepower (and they'll only get more demanding). You don't need another Gigabyte one, but rather any 560 Ti will do

getting a 2GB one will help with graphics buffering too.

No, I know people that are displeased with this particular card. Also, same brand will look better in your PC

no point if i already have a 560
post #8 of 9
selling it then get 7870 and future Cfx or wait kepler and see what nvidia brings
post #9 of 9
Is there any game you have that you can't run good enough ? If not wait for some time 560 ti could get even cheaper or we may see what kepler has to offer. If you can't run your games good enough go ahead and grab another.
