hey guys i want to upgrade my gtx 465 to like a gtx 560TI oc'd to 1000mhx from gigabyte or a gtx 570. i have a 950w power supply from corsair and a i7 950 oc to 3.5 ghz

More about : gtx 560ti 1000mhz gigabyte gtx 570

You have pleanty of power for either GPU. If cost is the major factor go GTX 560, if performance the GTX 570. If you buy a factory OC'd card it still has the top performance of the native GPU. The variant is cooling. A well cooled GTX 570 can be OC'd to performance competitive with a reference GTX 580. A OC'd GTX 560 will challenge the reference GTX 570.

Depends on your budget. If you wanna spend less than $300 get the 560. If you have more than $300 get the 570. Obviously the more expensive card is the better performer but either will be a nice upgrade....

I am also stuck between these two cards.
I think I'm going to end up going with the GTX 570 though for the extra power, especially when OC'd.

Have you thought about the GTX 480? It can outperform the 570 and come within about 5% of the GTX 580 (If OC's enough)!

It is very power hungry though, and can get rather hot!

^480 and 570 are more or less equal in performance, but 570 is a lot quieter and cooler, OP, if the prices are more or less the same *or 10-20$ difference* then get 570, it is still a bit faster than 560 @ 1000

You could always try unlocking the GTX 465 to a GTX 470.

ty everybody for helping me out. i guess i'm going to go with the 560 since its cheaper and i can still do dual sli later on or should i?

if your mb is crossfire capable, look at 6950 pricing lately? comparable with gtx570 in performance, but w/ the 560 in pricing....

I'd go with a GTX 570(even though the SOC GTX 560Ti will perform close to it at stock) because it can be overclocked pretty well.That GTX 560 Ti will not be able to overclock much further since it already has a 1000MHz core clock, whereas the GTX 570 can even match a GTX 580 when overclocked.

However if price is your main concern, then as others have said, go for the GTX 560Ti SOC.

@yaoers, did you mean 560 non Ti? It's a waste imo, your 465 is almost as fast as it and when unlocked into 470 it's faster. Also 6870, which is only 170-190$ right now, is faster and cheaper than 560 non Ti. If you want to see a worthy increase in performance you should at least go for 560Ti or 6950 1GB, which is around 30$ cheaper than 560Ti and more or less as fast as it. If you don't mind AMD cards then you could go for one of these:

...Or if you prefer nVidia then these are also quite fine deals imo (even better than AMD deals!):

which is faster SLI or Crossfire?

It depends on the drivers and support from the graphics companies and the game companies. With Nvidia the increase in a SLI is somewhere around 90% over a single GPU; and I believe tha Crossfire scale about the same.

Some games have great increases in Xfire and SLI and others don't. For example most air combat and/or flight simulators show no imrovement with Xfire or SLI -- these games are more CPU bound than GPU bound.

The answer is not a simple, straightforward one because of the different requirements of different games.

yeah thats what i thought at first but some people say that with a single card nvidia is faster but amd is faster in 2 or 3 card configurations

Again it depends on the game; some games Nvidia shows an advantage in SLI over AMD in XFire; others XFire is superior to SLI.

AMD has improved CF scaling by a lot lately, so did nVidia, but CF still is a bit better on 6900 series than SLI on 500 series (for example 6950 CF is more or less the same as 570 SLI)

GTX 570, or AMD CF HD 6870

GTX570, because:
cooler than 6870CF
quieter than 6870CF
needs less power than 6870CF
can be SLied later on (oh, i think your MB doesn't support SLI)
6870CF, because:
a bit faster than 570

If you open the door for a single 570, you may consider a 6950 or 6970. This would let you crossfire if you want to upgrade in the future. The 6970 costs and performance about the same as the 570, the 6950 saves you money and can unlocked to have 6970 shaders and OC'ed to the same speeds for less money but with a little risk involved.

I know that this is late but Do Not Buy Gigabyte they are the worst as far as the GTX 560 is concerned. A 1ghz gtx 560 is equal to a stock gtx 570 in both performance and power consumption. Most gtx 560 begin to struggle to hold their clocks any ware from 920mhz on the low to 1050mhz on the high. With mods it can reach a little over 1.1ghz but that will radically shorten the life of the card and requires cryogenic cooling to remain stable.

@nforce4max, I haven't personally had any experience with Gigabyte cards, but i've been looking at their cards when choosing one for myself and i really liked their prices. Also i've seen really good reviews about them, but maybe your right and they have problems in a long run.
OP: If you are about to choose between GTX 560 Ti SOC and GTX 570 then get 570, it will be worth extra money (unless you get a good deal), there are really only few 560Tis (probably over 1 Ghz core) that can beat GTX570 @ stock and if you will want to OC by yourself from stock then most of 560Tis are only capable of reaching 925MHz core.

Please choice another brand so that you are not wasting your money by giving your self problems in the future. Their gtx 560 is well known to have many problems and the reviews speak for them selves. There is far to many complaints for this to be coincidence. I bought their gtx 460 oc edition and their gtx 560 still uses them same fans. They are very fragile but still flexible, they don't make noise at first but they are made very cheaply compared to what is on most cards as the bearings often wear out. They snap together and are held to the faceplate by only some simple glue that easily breaks. The only thing holding the fan to the stator coil and face place is only a simple plastic ring that often needs to be lubricated forming one to take the fan apart making the plastic ring worse. They make grinding noises when not fixed and can come apart if handle improperly and had a close call one morning when one fell away from the card landing my on 8800gt. I later scrapped the cooler leaving the block bare with a dual 70mm vantec bay fan to cool the card. Ironically it ran cooler than before without the need to set the fan speed every morning. They also skimmed on power vrm and vram cooling but did apply a small cooler for the power vrm phases that power the gpu only. The gtx 460 had push pins and often didn't apply much pressure so thermals were poor. The gtx 560 used screw mounts but the block is still small. There is no vram cooling on their cards. The blocks them selves cooling the gpu is low mass and very cheaply made. A toddler can easily grip and ruin the cooler with minimal effort. I later performed two mods to the card to help improve thermals and to avoid failure. One I used a pci-e to agp bridge cooler that was drilled to mount on the backside of the power vrm while still using the stock as it was on the gpu side of the card. Thermal pads to avoid shorts and provide thermal interface. Screws to bolt the two together. The other was that I modded a socket 5/7 cooler to have universal mounts to act as a backplate for the gpu while using thermal pads as thermal interface. It uses the stock screws to mount through to the stock cooler cooling the gpu from both side just like the power vrm. I applied a 40mm fan to improve performance. Now the card runs much better and got rid of a fps issue at the same time :)  900mhz on this card and does not go above 60c in a hot sweltering room.
