Upgrades (560GTX Ti)

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Right so it's getting to be that time again and I was looking for some input from all my friends here at OCN. I want to know what you think about the 560GTX-Ti going into my sig rig here. Replacing my 9800GTX+ that, bless it's little heart, just isn't cutting it anymore. The 560 is right around what i'm trying to spend (+) and is supposedly powerful enough to enjoy Crysis 2, etc.

I want to know how it will integrate with my current setup?
Does it draw more power than my 550 can handle?
I would think it is more efficient than the 9800.
How severe will the bottlneck be with my CPU/RAM?

I've unlocked the quad core as well as made a minor push to 3.0 stable with my X3 upon installing my Xig, but load temps are approaching 50 so I have backed off until I order a Noctua to replace the stock fan.

Would dropping a hundo on an 8 gig setup benefit me?
(Briefly contemplated a nother 2x2 set of modules to match currents but remembered that making the memory controller overload).

I would very much like to be able to max out FFXIV! Also I am wanting to play Crysis 2 very badly :] discuss please.

I think its a perfect match. PSU should power it no problem.
You should not see any bottleneck with your current CPU, and if you do, you can always OC a little bit - should be able to hit 3.2 without any trouble at all.

You will be just fine, sounds to me like a good upgrade for your rig. I have a cheap 550W psu and its just fine. Your cpu may limit it slightly, but I really don't know for sure it probably depends on the game. RAM-wise you will be fine. If you were to upgrade anything else I would say cpu. On crysis2 I get about mid 40s fps constant, and I don't even overclock my gpu for that.

The 560 is a great card, and should be fine in your sig rig.

PSU wise, should be fine. The 560 doesn't require that much power.

8GB vs 4GB won't really matter that much. Games don't need all that much.

A decent Quad + a 560 can def play Crysis 2. I had no issues playing the beta/demo. Great card, it really unleashes at 950/1000<hz core clock. OC that beast!

I think it would be a good match for your current system. With your CPU and resolution you will range from no CPU bottleneck in some games up to a minor bottleneck up until around 3.6-3.8GHz in other games, but I wouldn't worry about it too much, it shouldn't be game breaking. I also wouldn't buy more RAM and would instead save up for a future processor and platform upgrade as 4GB should be good for a while longer than a Phenom II X4 at 3.0GHz will. So I would make the next thing you save for be either SandyBridge or Bulldozer.

Also I would wait for this TFIII 560 that will have VRM cooling that should be out pretty soon.

Ah indeed! @ that new 560! I've looked but does anyone have any word as to the release date on the egg? I've heard Thursday..? I will definitely be getting one of these. Also, does anyone have any suggestions on how to maximize the efficiency of my Heatsink?? I'm hoping that a Noctua will really kick it into gear.

noctuah dh14 and silver arrow are ones to definitely take a look at. Depending on your budget I would get the silver arrow and ap15s.
