idk what 560 i want

post #1 of 51
Thread Starter 
okay so i have finally decided upon a 560 for my gpu upgrade, but now i can't make up my mind on which one. i plan on one card now and sli in near future for use with 2d surround(5040x1050) or 3d vision (1920x1080) i'll have access to both. i'm torn between the vram of the 2gb palit http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814261099 and the ability up step up with the evga http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130604 if the 560's don't cut it.

The 2 Gb palit is a non-reference card with a red PCB.
the step-up with the EVGA only applies to cards that weren't unavailable at the time.

IF i were you I would go with neither and go with a Twin Frozr II or an ASUS DirectCU II, they run really well and really cool. I actually regret buying my GTX 570 HD from EVGA for some reason, and Im going to get an ASUS DirectCU II GTX 570.

If you want to go with only those 2 cards, that for an extra 1 Gb of Ram for $20 isn't bad, that is if you dont mind the RED PCB and the non-reference design.

the red pcb is a non-factor, performance>looks.
palit was only an option because of the added ram over the others.
the msi looks great, also the gigabyte, if only i was sure the1gb versions will be enough horsepower for either 2d surround or single screen 3d. that's why i liked the evga because i could move into a 570/580 if necessary without taking a loss.

Well because you seem to want to go multi monitor in the future the 2GB certainly wouldn't be a bad idea but keep in mind that that palit has no sort of VRM cooling other than incidental airflow so if you do anything more than a mild overvolt you would want to invest in some VRM heatsinks for it. Also as far as I know you can step up to any higher performing and priced EVGA card regardless of if it was available at the time of purchase but you may want to verify that yourself before making the purchase if you go that route.

+1 for the MSI TFII. Just get a set of MOSFET sinks and you're golden. Looks cool, runs cool.

sorry if i was unclear of my intentions, let me try this again. i already have the monitors to run surround or eyefinity in my case. a 3x1 (5040x1050) setup is awesome for everyday multitasking and i would hate to go without it. it's just my current card doesn't have the horsepower to game that way. having been very discouraged with constant bugs and issues with the ati drivers, i am looking to go green on this setup. so do you think 560's are still the best rout, knowing i am going right into a 2d surround setup and a 3d setup down the road.

Hmm at that res, you'd be pushing ~30% more pixels than 2560x1600 (5292000 vs 4096000). According to the reviews I've seen, that's already nearing the top of their "playable" performance for demanding titles.

http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/N..._Ti_SLI/1.html

The extra Vram on the Palit version would certainly help. I'm actually planning on buying some myself, but at the same time, the 560s may not have the muscle to even use AA or high tessellation and keep acceptable framerates across 3 monitors.

Really it depends on what kinds of games you want to play, but I think if you're determined to go with a 3 monitor setup, you'll probably want to look at a 570/580 setup. That or look into ATI cards. Of course if Crysis/Metro/AvP aren't regulars in your library you may be just fine.

Well, since you'll be required to get two cards anyway, two 560s should give you enough processing power to drive that resolution. Ideally you'd be getting two 570s, but that's also a hefty amount more.
