MSI CYCONE 460GTX 1GB or GIGABITE 560GTX Ti 1Gb

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I'm currently debating on which one to get.. Newegg has the 460gtx on sale right now at $184.99 with a $30.00 mail in rebate.. total $154.99 while the Gigabite 560GTX Ti is running at $250 -__- both with free shipping.. I know performance wise the 560gtx Ti would stomp on the 460, however, which one would you guys think would be my best choice in regards to the best bang for my buck?? helppp please

I was in the same boat. I had been planning on getting a 460 but, I decided to drop the extra coin for the GTX 560. Since it's a new card I'm going to be able to keep it a lot longer before I need to start thing about upgrading so, in the long run, it's actually cheaper.
Plus this way I won't be sitting here a month or two later wishing I would have just bought the 560.

Price/performance definitely its a tough choice. But payin 100$ extra for 20%...
I say 460, but still the 560 is more powerful. Whats your system and resolution?

Clock for clock the 560 is ~10% faster than the 460. That said, the 560 can clock higher. Most 460s top out a little over 900, while 560s can hit 1Ghz on air.

It really comes down to your gaming needs, but imo at those prices the 460 is a much better buy.

DO you think that the MSI cyclone is one of the top choices as far as a 460gtx?

given you can get the rebate, and assuming it cmes back i'd go with the 460.

otherwise i'd go with the 560. it's 33% faster out of the box and still has OCing headroom.

Vs a stock 460 yes, Cyclones are factory OC'd however.

Cyclones are great. They're slightly lower clocked than Hawks out of the box, but afaik they aren't binned lower and can OC just as well.

The only bad thing I've heard about them around here are that they can get pretty hot in SLI compared to other 460s (especially if your case has poor airflow). If you're planning on sticking with a single card, there shouldn't be any problems though.
