I had the same logic, hence me taking my $350 card and overclocking it to slightly better than a $500 card, and I can push it further if I want to (.037v yet before I'm even at the stock cap, and I'd expect the Asus card would handle 1.15-1.175 with the improved parts. When I SLI them, I'll push one of the cards up to that (so I have a ready replacement right there if I go too far)

I debated 560/570 for months. Finally just went with the 570 because of the returns on overclocking. A 560 overclocked gets you ~$100 in performance, a 570 overclocked gets you $150+ in performance. Not to mention, I would have regretted the 560 6 months down the road anyways.

I'm in the same boat. After buying GTX 570, I have read the dying 570 thread which made me scared to push my card a little further. but FUD aside, I am very contented with its performance. So maybe if I were on your shoes, I'll try it out first (option 3). Option 4 is also a logical choice but sometimes the upgrade itch is hard to resist!

There are other cards at that price range with better overclock potential/performance. That's why I was expecting more from the 560. I think the 560 @ a $200 price range would be great, probably best bang for your buck if anything.

I have had the 560, 570, and 580. I think the 560 is the best bang for the buck. I can see a slight performance loss from the 570 on games like crysis with the 560. I am not sure I could see any real diff in games from a 570 vs 580.

I was not convinced the ref 570 was a cool runing card, mid 80's in Crysis is not that cool.

The 570 certainly isn't a waste at 1080p. It's not really a "value" buy, but enthusiast cards never are really (neither is the 560 atm honestly).
True, but as you pointed out in one of your graphs, the price-to-perf is much better on the 560, making it "more" of a value buy.

Now after hunting around more on the webz, I am getting curious about Kepler... is it really supposed to launch in 5-6 months?

"3-4x the performance per watt" looks pretty sick. Looks like buying a 570 is on the last part on the flat end of a exponential curve towards the awesome.

Course, like all nvidia releases, the first to release will be the 680 followed by the 670. If waitng only 6 months makes my $350 3 to 4 times better in ppw, it might be worth thinking about that more.... as I sit with the 570 box on my lap and type...

GTX 460 is still priced at $199.

Unlock the fan and set a profile and you'll never hit 70c.

just put it in and try it, if you want to return it after opening you still can...

getting quite offtopic now here, but the 460 SE is not the same card as the full 460.

Yea I know, I was getting off topic, sorry. Honestly I thought the 460 Price drop around $150-160 since the 560 TI came out. But man they're still up there.
