Nvidia GTX 560Ti Benchmark and Overclock Thread - Page 4

I dont have multimonitors but I can tell you that BFBC2 runs fine, maybe those people that OC'd didn't have a stable one?

BTW if you plan on overclocking, dont plan on hitting 1ghz on the core, unless you feel comfortable pumping the volts past 1.1 (Considering the card ships with .987v)

Anyway, SLI works great! I dont regret buying these cards by any means, enjoy them as much as I do!

(For your reference, I have my cards 100% stable 950/1900/2300 at 1.025v)

I can go higher, but the voltage increases drastically so I dont feel it's worth the power for a couple fps

the card voltage for the MSI 560's seem to be rather low and decent for such clocks im thinkin of getting a 560 (only need 1 since i don't play at 1920x1080)

I'm thinking about buying a 560Ti soon for a new build I'll be making. My monitor resolution is still 1280x1024 although I might get a 24" 1920x1080p. Now, my question is : Will the 560 be powerful enough for games @ max, maybe with no AA, AF id mind that much for now, in 1 year, 2-3 years?

First i've ordered two of the same cards, i've read plenty of great reviews. It seems though that after reading through both MSI and nvidias forums that there are many problems related to facotry OC models such as the twin frozr II/OC version.

*snip*

Hopefully that wasn't too many questions :-)
Looking forward to your answers and thanks in advance!
MSI's graphics cards have been solid in the past, and the Twin Frozr cooler (I had the original on my old GTX 275) is a great performer. It's a well-known fact that people have varying levels of difficulty when it comes to computers; many are able to just plug and play, but many are unfortunate enough to run into issues like those you've described. It all really sounds like driver issues and user error; if you do a proper driver uninstall and re-install, things should move fluidly.

The ideal way, I believe, is to uninstall drivers and do a sweep, install the cards, start up with one monitor connected to the top card, install drivers. Once everything is running smoothly, connect the second monitor to the bottom card. Don't mess with clocks until you're sure games run properly.

As far as the game-specific issues, it just sounds like driver problems. I personally wouldn't even bother overclocking two cards for current games, since it's got enough performance to run nearly everything at 1080p with 60+fps.

Don't worry ahead of time, just see how you fare with your installation.

It's difficult to make a generalization, as games have varying levels of quality; it'll depend on the games you play, not to mention we can't make accurate predictions of what games will take until we get our hands on 'em. Take Metro 2033, for instance; according to reviews, it runs relatively fluidly on 1050p maxed with no AA, but it'll drop down quite a bit at higher resolutions. Bad Company 2, however, runs fluidly even at 1080p 4xAA (I see it at a constant 60fps in MP with dips once in a while). Battlefield 3 seems like it'll be much tougher to deal with completely maxed, but it may be insanely optimized.

It's a fantastic card and value, and will definitely last you a while; but it's usually the case to expect to lower settings down the road as new, more taxing games are released.

EDIT: I also forgot to mention that being "powerful enough" is generally subjective. For me, I need 50+fps to feel comfortable (except in the cases of Crysis, and the like, for which I'm willing to give up framerate for quality, to a certain point), but there are plenty of people who are perfectly content with 30fps.

Hey guys, thanks for the replies. Onis it seems that cards differ in what what they're capable of.

In regards to your "walkthrough" Efeman, i guess i do worry to much in advance . I do however like to be prepared for any complications ahead of time.
post #37 of 50
it's not really difficult to generalize hardware to game fluidity, alot of times user error can cause a game that would run fluid to run like crap alot of the time . BF3 will be optimized but unnoticable the specs of BF3 should be just a tad more then BC2 nothing more then just a tad.

if ya play games at moderate resolution like me it'll last longer then people playing at 1080 which if your on budget like i am it's a relief and a big relief at that since it would rely on the proccessor and not the videocard as much.

which is true 30fps is the line where most are comfortable at, tho those who want 60+ usually overkills it >_>.

arrogance maybe..... ignorance who knows..... speaking from personal experience totally.....

My 560 was stable for around half an hour at 950 core, 1000mV in Crysis Warhead until it started to artifact. I was so surprised that the driver didn't crash.
