Gtx 560 - Page 2

post #11 of 44
There are literally no downsides to this card... except for it looking way less impressive in a case compared to a GTX 480

I'm actually trying to get rid of my GTX 480 so I can drop to a 560 and OC its balls off.

460 to 560 isn't a very good move imho unless you can get almost all of your money back on the 460. The performance difference honestly isn't THAT dramatic (anything that a single 460 struggles to run a 560 will struggle with as well).

For a single card upgrade the 570 and/or 580 makes more sense.

Actually I sold my MSI Cyclone GTX 460 for $160 and got a GTX 560 Ti. I do not regret my decision.

Well, I did say "unless you can get almost all your money back on the 460."

I'm surprised someone would pay 160 for a used cyclone when you can buy new 460s for that price

Any pros and cons of getting the 560 instead of the 6950? It's just like 10 to 15 bucks more and it might be able to unlock to a 6970.

And not sure why in a local computer store the XFX 6950 is selling very well, always out of stock and whenever it's restocked it's gone pretty quickly. But I just checked yesterday for the 560 and it's in stock most of the time.

Why is 6950 more popular than 560? Because ppl prefer multiple monitors over physX?

It also depends on what monitor and resolutions it will be at? 1920x1200 or 2560x1600 etc.. Another thing to look at if you want a single card performance look at a used 5970 I see them selling between $350-400 off ebay. I was going to pull the trigger on the MSI N560GTX-TI Twin Frozr II/OC, but I recently added water to my Asus 5850 card and stock was 750/1000 then I used MSI Afterbuner to increase voltage now I am rock solid at 1050/1300 now near the bench numbers of the 560gtx. If you do get a 560GTX go with MSI I see the first newegg customer got his to picture below... 1027/1177/2054

He said the con for the 560 is that it will drop in price in a few months. Is it true? Should I get it a few months later instead?

If you want really good price/performance the Gigabyte 560 is supposed to be really good. Almost near 570 performance for ~$75 less.

They hand pick these cards and they are said to be built with higher-quality components than the reference models. (Although I can't confirm that for sure)

It comes at 1 GHz core out of the box, so you probably won't be able to OC it much more but at least you know it is already capable of those speeds, so I would say it is worth the extra $20 or so over the reference for the 1 GHz guarantee and upgraded cooler.

I bought one yesterday to replace my 2x 5770s. Performance will be about the same, but it's only one card.

The 560 TI doesn't really have reference models does it? I mean I know EVGA is using a reference style cooler, but nVidia is basically letting companies do what they want with it right from the jump.
