Hey
I remember talking to you when I was getting the GTX 470 haha, quite a while ago. Don't worry man, I'm planning on a GTX 560 SLI set-up when I get my P8|P67 ASUS Motherboards, Intel Core i5 2500k (3.3GHZ) and Corsair 4GB Vengance DDR3 RAM, Corsair SSD etc..

I can't SLI at the moment on my Micro-ATX board (I hate my current computer.)

I know right?
The GTX 470 was so damn noisy, had problems in OCCT, crashed in games, had so many problems with that thing I was going to get an HD 6950 and go back to AMD Radeon cards, but I still prefer NVIDIA..

I was quite lucky though because I asked before a while back for the GTX 560 instead.. but they just turned around and said "No" pretty much.
I thought, wait a sec. They still haven't sent it back so I'ma just ask anyway and they gave it to me

Quite chuffed at the moment XD
Thanks for posting guys.

Most of the GTX 560 ti's do 1000mhz on the core without getting as hot as a 470 on stock frequencies - and the directCU has an even better cooler than the stock. That's a mad card for the price - go get it!
He'd have to pay probably around £40 - £50 more (assuimng he sells for 150 and buys one for 190ish) to get about the same performance, but cooler because of better stock cooler, etc. Its pretty much an expensive sidegrade. He can just buy a GTX 480 or 6950 for that money. :/

The 5xx series cards are nothing short of awesome.

Dude, I'm done with GTX 4** Series cards from NVIDIA.. Had 2 faulty 470's in the past so meh that's enough for me.

I'm perfectly fine with a GTX 560 with that DirectCU II cooler.

Oh dude, don't worry I will run as fast as I can with a laugh eviler than Dr.Evil himself's laugh (Austin Powers Movie) XD
Yes, the Radeon 5*** series cards are good. I had a PowerColor HD 5850 PCS+ about a year ago, ran everything I wanted it too. Then I sold it for some reason and got a GTX 470 -.-

Now I'm just going to go with an SLI set-up with 2 ASUS GTX 560's by next year in a SandyBridge build. (when the boards are fixed in around April time.)

Thanks guys for the posts
