Not to mention, the 7850 only pulls 110W or so (on average, while gaming) compared to like 150W for the 560 Ti. 6870 only pulls 119W. http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Palit/GeForce_GTX_560_2_GB/25.html
Well, the 6870 is faster than the 560, and it's the same price ($150 with free Dirt 3 for the 6870, $145 for 560 on Newegg). http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Palit/GeForce_GTX_560_2_GB/27.html As you can see, 6870 is 5% faster at 1920x1200. Let's be honest, there's nothing solid from Nvidia in the sub-$399 price range right now (ok, 460 1GB is a good value I'd suppose, just because it's $10 cheaper than 6850 right now).
..So, what reason is there to go with a lower-midrange Nvidia card besides the 460 1GB ? F@H I suppose. No other exclusive uses for CUDA, now that Photoshop CS6 will support OpenCL hardware acceleration for Mercury Playback Engine.
Well u keep bringing up the 7850 which is not a $200 card its closer to $250 - $280and is in no way near the same category of the cards I am interested

I am building an amd system I dont think any i5 or i7 will help me:notontopi But I will be using a fx 4100 overclocked

The GTX 560 was never a good choice at the prices it has been sold at because the GTX 460 existed. I suggest you ignore both cards and buy an HD6870.

I understand that nvidia cards have more technology that radeon cards do not so maby that makes up for some of the difference in vram but maybe not. Anyway this is the card I have decided to sli its newer than the 460 since they are being phased out has 2gb of vram, under $200 & I'm guessing they will perform well...

Fanboying a company isn't healthy, you should always be after the price to performance ratio and if company A beats company B in your price range then you should go for it.. But if you want the best bang for the buck Nvidia card its right here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130759

It will run hot and consume more power but it will poop on that GTX 560.

Some people are really giving bad advice.

The general rule is to go for a single card solution over multi-card setups because of the problems that exist in multi-GPU solutions.
You'll also have less power consumption, noise, and heat, plus more room on your board.

If you can shell out the money for 2 560s then go for one of ATI's cards like the 7950, or if you want something cheaper you can look at the 7870 and 7850. All these cards perform great. You can find the 7950 for less than $400, which is the same price as those 560s.

Strictly comparing a 460 and a 560, the 560 (non-ti) is basically an overclocked 460, and really the $50+ gap between them doesn't justify choosing the 560 over the 460.


THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH AMD CARDS. And this is coming from someone who has 460s in SLI. Before the new gen released, 460s were the best in terms of price to performance. Now there are much better cost effective solutions, and in a single card as well.

1. There is little difference between a 460 and a 560. Both of them use Fermi and can bit-stream HD audio to a receiver. Both are also quiet and cool. They will also net around the same performance.

2. x8 on a motherboard will NOT make dual GPU setup useless. It won't bottleneck a system with dual GPU. Only a system with a single GPU. (Almost all boards have single x16 and dual x8.)

3. There is nothing wrong with going AMD. (The bulldozer flop had no effect on their GPU department.)

4. For anything 1920x1200 or less, 1GB of Vram is fine.

so that galaxy card for $175 is not a good deal? I do not have $400 to shell out on a single card I will be purchasing just one card for around $150 then adding a second card later as per my budgets allowance
