help me pick a 560ti - Page 3

post #21 of 28
I would go with any of the GIGABYTE cards brother. 2 of them will beat a gtx 580 by a good amount. Also you don't have to worry about the psu in the future. I'm getting the soc card.

I do read that you plan to catch a good deal on a GTX580.

But, to make the picture completed, let me comment on an Galaxy GTX560. Their top-of-the-line is the White Edition.
As a picture is better than a thousand words, I link you to a few juicy pics depicting the quality parts and design adopted.

The downside is that you might have a harder time to find it in North America.

if i do go the 560 route it will be the twinfrozr, unless the gigabyte soc comes down in price. +rep to all who helped.
Good call. Consider too that the 580 has lots more onboard ram, which will give you some headroom for your 1920x1200 mointor. My only tiny regret with the TFII 560 is that 1280MB would have been nicer. I considered the gigabyte soc and concluded that its 560 is being stretched rather thin; it'll be interesting to see what VIDs these cards use.

+1 for the Twin Frozr II. I just got mine in the mail on Friday, it was a "downgrade" from a GTX 480, and I'm in love with this thing.

If you do end up getting it and plan to OC (with a card like this, it's blasphemous not to), grab a set of Enzotech BCC9's for the VRMs and you're golden. I managed a 980 core OC with a straight 50mV overvolt, without trying to optimize. I know I can pass 1GHz once I get the VRM sinks.

Off topic, but do you just use the thermal tape that comes with the heatsinks? I was considering this option, but I don't want the heatsinks falling off; they'll be hanging from the VRMs with only that tape (the fan faces down, as usual).

On topic, +1 for the MSI TFII, it's super cool even at 950MHz (stock volts).

Wait for the MSI GTX 560 Hawk Twin Frozr 3. It's going to be a beast.
