Selling a GTX 560 SC from EVGA that is in pristine condition. Has literally seen 3 days of use. Still have the original box and papers. I'm in Brookline, Massachusetts. Send me a pm with an offer if interested. Also willing to trade for a 6870 or 6850 although you would still have to pay some, as this performs and costs more.











And that flaky-ish plasticy things you see on the front of the card is the plastic wrapping you always get with these cards. I haven't peeled mine off and it keeps off the dust and smudges well.

I have a 6950. How loud is the card? Have you ever had it under load?

I have had it under load and I can barely hear it. Really is quite quiet. And I wouldn't mind a 6950. Would do a trade as well.

Here's a quote from another forums page where a person was trying to decide on whether to buy a GTX 560 ti or a 6950.
"The 560 Ti is shorter, runs cooler, and is quieter then the 6950"
The GTX 560 SC is better than a normal GTX 560 and cools better because EVGA especially picks these cards from the rest. Also, it performs just about as well as a GTX 560 ti because of the overclock and it still has room for additional overclocking. When I was a bit bored, I actually took off the heat sync to replace the stock thermal paste with some really good Arctic Silver 5 and I was horrified when I saw that there was just this massive hunk of thermal paste there. I properly cleaned it off and applied some AS5.

Sorry, I forgot about this topic. I can probably trade the 6950 for the 560 next week. I'll PM you with shipping address and such tomorrow. This is a reference card.

Nah I'm sorry. I've decided I only really want a 6870 or a 6850.

I'm just as willing to sell it for $160 shipped.

Sell your item for what it is, don't misrepresent it. You're implying that a GTX 560 SC is even with a 6950 and that's a flat-out fabrication. Not to say there's anything wrong with a GTX 560, which is why I'm saying to sell that--not something it isn't.

For clarity, the TI is decisively faster IF both are overclocked. But this may be a good buy for someone who doesn't overclock and wants the factory overclock this card comes with.

I never once said that the GTX 560 SC is better than a 6950. I simply implied that it's smaller, runs cooler, and is quieter. I also implied that a GTX 560 SC is better than a regular GTX 560 because EVGA especially picks them and that it has more room more OCing.

bump. This is essentially $150 for the card plus $10 shipping.

Wow no pics of what your selling?
March 10, 2012 1:31:48 PM
