It's $20 more and has better warranty. What the hell are you talking about?

For raw horspower, the 480 can't be beat. But suprisingly, I'm not missing it one bit since getting this 560.

Next couple paychecks arrive and it's SLI time!
I'm feelin' the same way! As soon as the payment for my 480 comes in, I'm in for another 560. I'm getting myself ready for Crysis 2, and BF3 later this year.

Yup, I'm looking @ either the Lian Li PC-9F or the Fractal Design ARC MIDI from my ridiculous Stacker w/ 10,000 fans.

I hope Crysis 2 and BF3 scale well w/ SLI and exhibit minimal stuttering if any...

Just got my TFII! Woo! Time to do a quick OCCT run while I get ready for work.

I'm still up in the air as to what case I'll be going with. The NZXT Phantom caught my eye. I was looking for a larger ATX case, but probably not full like like my A1200. I'm glad you reminded me of Fractal Designs.

Rep mentioned in one of the case threads that Newegg will have the MIDI for in Aprilish. $100 seems to be the rumored price tag...and now you see why I haven't caved on the Lian-Li yet.

I bought a GTX 560 Twin Frozr II and am having trouble OCing it beyond 920 MHz. Anyone else having these issues? Tried the Metro 2033 and Batman AA benchmarking utilities. I've made sure that all my Nvidia and PCI settings are for max performance. Very disappointed since I thought I would get in the mid-high 900s at stock voltages. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

make sure in bios your settings for pci express lane are at 100 and not 105 or something...other than that, not all cards are created equal...bump your core voltage a bit and see what happens

I checked out my BIOS and I am at 100 MHz on my PCI-E. Upping my voltage to 1062mV is only semi-stable at 960MHz core, so I think I'll stick with 920MHz at stock voltages since that seems to be rock solid. Unfortunately it seems I always get stuck with the "created less equal" graphics cards. Or maybe there's something else in my system that is limiting my graphics OC. Thanks anyway for the help!

I feel the same way... maybe we don't get the "created less equal" cards... Maybe we're just honest and other people lie about their OC over the net lol.
