No matter the "Good" specs it has, I'm certain it cannot outperform a GTX 560 1gb.


Also, dont you mean GT 520? I cant seem to find anything about the GTX 520..

The 560 will still eat it for breakfast they really can't be compared in performance and please don't compare memory sizes here beacuse low end cards always had huge ammounts of memory to trick people into buying them. If you compare the ammount of cuda cores you can see that the 560 ti has 384 and 520 has 48 and those are the things that actually do all the processing on the GPU...

EDIT: Saw your specs up thatere that is not the 520 I think those are normal GTX 560 specs... 560 ti will still be faster tho unless it gets VRAM limited

If he is a good friend, get the GTX 560 1GB. If he mistreats you, get the GT520 wink.gif

I believe your site has a typo, as no such card as the GTX 520 exists.

From the description:
Quote:
The ZOTAC GeForce GTX 560 2 GB GDDR5 PCI Express video is a high-end video card powered by the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 GPU. Included is 2 GB of GDDR5 memory with clock rate of 4008 MHz that make this card perfect for high-resolution displays. The features a PCI Express x16 2.0 interface that provides a high-bandwidth interface for your GPU and CPU interact with each other.

A GTX 560 will not particularly benefit from 2GB VRAM. Choose whichever model is the cheapest and meets your aesthetic requirements.
