Hi guys,

so yeah, I already have an Inno3D GTX 560 (clocked at 822) reference card installed in my pc, and I wanted to buy another.

The question is, should I get another Inno3D card or go with something like the Gigabyte OC or Asus DirectCU II which basically cost the same as the Inno3D? Which one will work best?

Please note my PSU is a 700w Cougar 80+ Silver certificate.

That's a stupid idea. The MSI and ASUS versions both get higher OCs than the Gigabyte, and they are much cooler.

Last question.

There are 2 types of the Asus one, the DirectCU II TOP edition & the standard DirectCU II.

The TOP edition is slightly overclocked to 900/1800, but would it even benefit when my other card is only 822/1644?

I had the gigabyte version, It did 1000mhz @ 1.05 (1050 in afterburner, whatever that means) and it was near silent, even at load

if you are in the UK mine is for sale in the For Sale section

Get the non-TOP version. In SLI the cards will run at the speed of the slower card. So it would downclock to 822 anyway. Even if you plan on overclocking the TOP version is a waste of $ because you just pay for the factory to OC the card.

Finally a good answer

OP: Try and overclock your card first to see where u can reach. Then buy what ever card that suits you. If your card cant reach 950 mhz then u cant buy the gigabyte 1 cause ull crash (in sli). Also even if you are able to hit 950mhz, watch the temps. In sli temps are higher and stability is harder. My advie get a non-reference card with slight oc. Asus DCII non-top or msi twinfrzr II

I was able to reach 950.

now after the patch I can barely reach 880 without crashing my drivers

Are these 560's hitting well over 1GHz? Normally I wouldn't bother with a factory OC'ed card but 950 or 1000 is pretty damn fast.

my cards can do 1gh @ 1.087 easily in single mode but are not SLI stable in Crysis2, it downclocks to default in a few minutes of gameplay

950 @ 1.087 works on multiplayer, but singleplayer might or might not crash

900 @ 1.050 is rock solid

i must add a case fan so i can try with higher voltage
