Well, I would say 800mhz is a high over clock, for a 470. 750mhz is probably more the norm, as most reviews seem to say it overclocks less than 750mhz. 925mhz is a low overclock for a 560ti, mine is at 1ghz and most reviews suggest an overclock of 950mhz as the norm.

800mhz 470 vs 1000mhz 560, that is some benchmarks I would like to see.

Obviously I have higher detail settings than the game normally applies, but whats the point of SLI on a 60hz screen if you're getting 130+ fps?
Oh wow. Yeah DA2 does seem to be a VRAM hog. I, wasn't expecting it to take that much memory at 1080p though.

Hopefully nVidia will be much less stingy with the VRAM on the next gen of cards.

800MHz is easy to reach on the GTX 470 with voltage tweaking. Check this review:

http://www.overclock.net/nvidia/8955...on-review.html

You need around 800MHz on the GTX 470 to get on par with a stock GTX 570 and 1000MHz on the GTX 560 (according to reviews on the Gigabyte SOC version).

Either way the cards are pretty much equal in terms of performance. Not sure if the extra Vram will make a difference.

Yeah, if it wasn't for the sub $200 price tag on each and the seemingly better drivers than ATI I'd have probably gone ATI


Though I am pleased with my performance, the vram usage is starting to get up there now that I can force some higher settings to use the additional power I now have... I'm at a very nice spot as far as detail/texture quality and fps atm, but all that could change

Performace wise, it's so close between those cards that while gaming it probably won't matter which you keep. Since you already got your 470 under a waterblock (which I'm sure was not cheap...consider that extra vram too), sell the 560 and use the cash for your next upgrade cycle where it really will make a performance difference.

I have never used more than 750MB vRAM at 1080p, and I like eye candy on my 50" screen.

All depends on the game.

Thanks for everyones input.

I'm having problems with my Vertex 2 SSD right now so I'm unable to play with my RIG for the time being so I will not be able to try many voltage configurations the the MSI TFOC GTX560ti. As much as I love this card I think I am going to sell it. GTX470 water cooled is plenty for my needs right now. Hope to have my RIG up and running before the end of this week.


If I were able to buy a Aqua Tuning quality water block for the GTX560ti right now I would probably be selling the GTX470 instead. I put way to much effort and money in my water loop to not use it.

I am still not sure which card is better. I do think the GTX560ti may be able to go much faster with proper cooling and better bios for higher voltage.
