And yes, i've owned one.
Show me were it says 560's slied cant scale well please id love to see it.. either way it scales better than a 6850

Yes, I have been very satisfied with it. I wanted a powerful yet, not as power hungry card to stick in my micro atx i7 build and the GTX 560ti fit the bill perfectly. It plays all my games at 1080p at max settings, so I couldn't be more pleased. I agree though at $250 it's a little pricer for being only about 33 percent faster than the 460, but if you can find a deal(I got mine for $200) go for it.

I'm not a fan of Palit non-reference designs generally. I like that they compact the components and shorten the PCB on many models, but their cooling systems usually leave a lot to be desired (primarily in terms of noise, thermal performance is usually OK at best). My Sparkle GTX560 is a reference card, and I really enjoy it. The GTS450, GTX460, and GTX550/60 are the only nVidia performance 400/500 series cards whose reference designs I like. I would NEVER buy a reference GTX470,480,465,570, or 580 because I'm a noise nazi (Unless I planned to WC it). Just my two cents

I liked the aesthetic design of Palit's albino GTX570, but unless I find a price/feature combination from them that I can't resist, they won't be getting my business anytime soon

The question is: why buy the 560 when you can have the 6950 for a little more?

But yeah, the 560 is a decent card I guess.

The HD6950 1GB can be had for ~$250, but F@H, PhysX, driver/developer support, and PCB length brought me to the GTX560. I flip between both teams fairly often though.

It really comes down to personal preferences and the deals available at the time of purchase

Have had mine since it came out. It's a EVGA superclocked 560 Ti. Pretty good overclocker. I have it stable @ 1040/1250 with 1.1v. Here are the results from some of the benching I've been doing:



It's a pretty competent overclocker.

For the games and flight sims used on my rig, my GTX 560 delivers all the performance I need for now and I'm really happy with my purchase. I was aiming at a 570, but couldn't handle its price (and it really was more than I needed but everything else at the time was not enough) and AMD is out of the question for me (AMD drivers sucks for IL-2 and FSX).

My GTX 560 TFII is only so so as an OCer: I get a stable 966Mhz with a reasonable voltage bump that varies with what's being played. After that it's iffy; 980 and beyond is a brick wall regardless of voltage and case/cooler fans settings. So that's a tiny bit disappointing, but when I'm gaming that disappointment vanishes for otherwise it completely rocks.

Here's to the MSI TFII GTX 560 ti!

Well, the 1GHz SoC 560s basically equal a stock 570/480 at 1080p. An unlocked/OC'd 6950 is around that level as well, so either way your performance will be within a few percent of what you have now.

It really just comes down to preference. If you like the Nvidia features/drivers then go fermi!
