I can't seem to find any good benchmarks comparing the two directly, so my question is, does the 560 have more value than the 560ti?

If it's a piece of junk, then I'm thinking a 570 since the 560ti is already over $200. But I would rather spend less, so long as it's not a rip-off. And no, I will not buy AMD cards (poor Linux support). And keep in mind I will not be upgrading graphics for another 4 years probably. (also, i read that the 560ti has 3x performance of 8800gt on the nVidia website, is that true lol?)

The best piece of information anyone can give you about this topic is that buying a 560 non Ti at full price is literally like throwing away $50 compared to buying a 460.

Edit - The 560 non Ti is a lower performance version of it's Ti counterpart. There's been many threads about the 560 non ti on here. Price to performance ratio wise you get more for your money if you buy a 460 or 560 Ti than you would with a 560 non ti at full price.

Edit 2 - Then there's also the aspect that the high-end 560 Ti's offer close to 570 performance for significantly cheaper, but, as always, if you want 570 performance get a 570.

Edit 3 - If you absolutely want to get as much performance as you can with your budget, look for open box 560 Ti's.

If your not upgrading for four years then get the best single GPU you can afford to stretch it out.

ASCII summed up the cards well.

ASUS or MSI makes great non-reference cards that you can overclock rather well for 570's.

Happy hunting.

In less than 3 years no matter what you buy right now will be obsolete. Only the GTX 590 might hold a candle to newer cards.

There's 2 choices you can make:

1. Buy a cheaper card now, save some money and upgrade in 2 years. For example you could try finding a GTX 560TI for $200. In 2 years, spending another $200 will get you a much more powerful card.

2. Spend $400 and buy expensive right now (aka GTX 580) and pray that it will manage to max out your favorite games for the next 4 years (unlikely).

As for GTX 560 vs GTX 560TI, the TI is faster by about 10-20%.

You might want to consider an open-box GTX 570 or even a used one instead imo, it should last you longer and is quite a nice step up from the 560's.

Corsair HX 520 would be fine. Might as well get the best GPU you can run on the one power supply.
