Question, I have a single EVGA GTX 560 (non-ti). I see you have 2 of them in SLI. Was it worth it? do you play any games like BF3 and MW3? I was given a 750W PSU that is SLI rated so I can run 2 of these bad boys. I formerly had the 550ti and just upgrading to a single 560 made a world of difference. I am just trying to future proof a little more with out going out and buy a GTX580 or something really expensive. I have mine OC'ed to 900Mhz now and runs well.

I can say there's a difference. When I run the 3DMark11 benchmark, I can see the smoothness when that little underwater deep sea thing with the props goes over the rocks when compared to stock. clock. I've been playing Crysis 2 with all settings at Ultra and 1920x1200 without a hiccup. The graphics look amazing to me, but I am new to this, so I have not experience any of the high end cards. If you can go with 2 cards, go for it. You won't be disappointed. The top card runs about 10* warmer than the bottom card, but the top card only heats up to 71*C.

two 560's are worth it, with mine I'm playing bf3 on ultra minus a step of aa, and mw3 isn't even a question, plays it at its highest possible settings. the prices are going down too. they are also currently clocked at 900

Jut overclocking the GTX 560 to 950mhz, it will outperform a GTX560ti. I can only imagine how a dual set up would do. I am hoping these card dip below the $150 barrier when the next series are out. Nvidia has been bad with release dates. Kepler was originally supposed to be out.

If your talking brand new both - the 7970 is a better performing card for $110 more. You won't see any gains from the extra VRAM on single monitor of 1920x1200 resolution or less but in GPU power then 7970 will beat it hands down if you don't have a budget.

In March from the buzz - looks like the 670Ti (if it's not just rumor) will outperform the 7970 for less. Guess again it depends when your build is ready to go. That might help you choose which is the best route for you to take in the end.

BF3 dosen't take more than 1.472GB VRAM usage for my one GTX 580. Fact is the difference between 580 1.5GB vs 580 3.0GB on single1920x1200 resolution monitor is 1FPS.

At 3:40 min in he will prove my previous statement. He tested it on Crysis 2.



If your not building a new rig and just upgrading your current GPU you might want to have some patience. Even if you decide the one 7970, when Nvidia finally comes out it may very well force AMD's hand to drop pricing. You also have another option to view the real competition. Don't close the door before you peak inside.

If your gaming is not suffering, I'd wait if I was you.

On a single 1920x1200 monitor the 7950 is a tad better than the 580 in performance. The 580 is pretty much on par. It widens in performance when multiple monitors come into play with the 7950 moving ahead however. Both now priced similarly competing.

The 7950 and the GTX 580 are trading blows on a game-by-game basis

Which one you decide is up to you.

Someone like myself already owning a 580 to replace it with a 7950 is more of a side-grade rather than upgrade.
