It's also not fair to compare "used" or refurb prices to new prices.

OP: The 560 is faster than the 460 mainly because of clock speeds. The gap narrows quite a bit if they're clocked similarly, although the 560 does have more CUDA cores and in general can clock quite a bit higher than the 460s.

Basically, it's faster, but you're paying for it. It's in no way a better "deal" than the 460s. ~25% faster at stock, for ~25% more money. The AMD 6950 is the better buy if you have no reservations against AMD products. Some, like me, despise the drivers.
I couldn't have put it better.

This is my point! clock a 460sli to 875/1660 for nearly the same price (I saw a galaxy 460 sli combo new on the EGG for around $300) and it will destroy that stupid 560.

Sure that you can find better deals for better cards at around the same price of the GTX560, but i wouldn't consider it a bad graphics card, as overclocked it can almost reach a stock GTX570 in performance.

For 250-260 bucks i would buy a 6950 1GB, or other high-end GPU that i could find for about that price, even if previous-gen, I'm uncomfortable with SLI/CF setups of medium-high GPUs, but that's just me.
I'm not that familiar with US prices in all of the online shops you guys have over there, and i consider newegg to have good overall prices and nice rebates once in a while, so i apologyze for the lack of knowledge of the market

A 90-day limited warranty may not be that bad, considering that many brands don't accept Bios changes and voltage tweaks on their warranty statement. If you plan to OC a card a little hard your warranty on that card will probably be gone if you end up frying it...please correct me if i'm wrong.
I need upgrades

560 Ti oced beats a 6970. The new Ti's can reach over a ghz on the core, pretty much guarenteed to also.

So I need to buy today. Should I go with the 570, 470, 6950 or what? I will spend up to $250ish. Should I dual sli the 460's?

if you are looking to the best performance now, are comfortable with dual gpu setup and can buy them for a price you find reasonable and are willing to pay then go for dual GTX460 or HD6850.
All depends on you. I would buy a HD6950 1GB and crossfire later...

And the 6950 can reach past 580 levels. Also 6970 can be overclocked. Never use the overclock examples. My overclocked 460s beat 470 sli and match 5870s. And that's around the price of a 560ti.
A ghz is great number wise but unless you wanna flash your epeen it's your performance that matters. 570 can probably clock near 5970 levels, as it van easily reach 580 levels. 6950 is just the better card mang.

I'm not trying to argue with you really, you're actually quite right. They aren't bad cards, I just hate them because they aren't any budget king. Spend the extra 50 and just get the 2gb for the long hual. Slightly (very small) overclocked 6950 cfx beats 580 sli on mutlimonitor, little 560s don't.

You have a 480! That's the last gens fastest. Why are you supporting these stupid cards. They shouldve priced it at $210 THEN I'd be like :O not >_>
