asus gtx 560 ti or pny gtx 470 ?

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
I recently bought this asus 560ti card... and honestly I'm not impress with the stock clocks.. I was getting simillar performance on my gtx 460 se overclock to 850/1700/2000 vcore at 1075.. this card is okay but i think i over payed Ha,

total was 263 dollars at frys. so can anyone suggest what kinda card I can get for 260 dollars that can kill any game out there.

I've been reading around, and I cant decide whats the best out there for 260 dollars ??

Iv seen two gtx 470's on craigslist for 200 dollars each..

one is a pny gtx 470 and the other is a evga gtx 470 sc.

should I return this card and get the evga gtx 470 sc ?!

does the 560ti have similar performance to the 470 ?! really dont know what to get

thanks for helping guys

The 470 is actually a weaker card than the 560. The 560 is the 470's replacement.

For $260, there is nothing better than the 560 Ti. At $300 you've got the 6950 and then at $350 it's the 570. If you want to noticeably out-perform the 560, you're going to have to increase your budget by at least $100.

Good reference: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...rd,2857-7.html

Three tiers in either direction is when it's noticeable. 460 vs 560 wasn't worth your money tbh, but you can't trump a 460 with anything in the sub-300 range.

Clock for clock, yes. But the 560 OC's better and also stays a lot cooler and uses a lot less power. I don't think the majority of 470s can touch the Gigabyte SOC 560...
