Other Top Notch GTX560/GTX570 Options... - Page 4

But I have been looking at this card

Palit GTX 560 Ti 2GB

I will NOT be upgrading again for quite some time so that much VRam would prevent a framebuffer bottleneck when Elder Scrolls Skyrim comes out. Sure, I could get a 1GB 560 Ti that's clocked slightly higher in other areas but that would mean nothing if playing at 1920x1080 in Skyrim would need a bigger framebuffer as going past what your framebuffer supports will instantly hammer the performance down. So quite possibly this would be a better choice as I expect Skyrim at 1920x1080 on average settings to break the 1gb framebuffer.

It's definitely something to consider if you won't be upgrading again for at least a couple of years, also depends on what you plan to play.

Though if you're able to SLI then everything I said is moot
ive never played any of the elder scroll series, but watching the skyrim demo on YT, it looks to be a very beautiful and graphically intensive game... at a good fps, im not sure a single 560ti would be enough, ram aside. of course thats a complete assumption, cause i dont know ****.

on some night tracks, i cant even play nfs shift 2 without dipping down to the mid 30fps range... which is horrible looking on fast paced games. and skyrim seems to have a lot more going on.

lol last night I was playing Tera online (Korean retail) and at one point my memory jumped up to 950mb. I've never even seen it get that high before.

I hope the memory on my 570 is enough for these new games coming out.
