Hi
I want to upgrade my pc's graphic card and thought i'd buy a GTX 560.
After looking at several I think I'll go with an Ti version, but which one?

I got a Asus P5N-D motherboard, DualCore 2 Duo E6850, 3000 MHz (9 x 333) CPU and corsair 2x2GB 400 MHz.
Im gonna buy a new PSU, ither Silver Power SP-SS500 500W or Fractal Design Integra 500W PSU
I think Ill go with the silver Power, or is the Fractal good enough? (the cheapest 500Wat i found)

Now to the Comparison
This are some cards i'v been looking at starting with the cheapest.
What i dont understand is that the Gainward has Memory Clock Speed ​​2.004 GHz and the rest 4GHz +

Looking at your system I say that the 560ti will be bottle necked by your core 2 duo on more cpu intensive games. I'd recommend the MSI TF2 one because the cooler is pretty good, it's clocked higher than the 1st two one the list and it very overclockable. The memory 2ghz is = 4ghz effective so it's the same just some spec list the "effective speed"

I have the twin frozer version of the 6950 and I can tell you its great. Quiet and stays very cool even though I have a pretty nice OC on that bad boy :) .

Im looking at the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 560Ti 1GB PhysX Windforce 2X
is it a lot better than the cheapest once above?
and I will most likley buy a new CPU after the summer.
I do have a Core duo E7500 but i dont think its faster. Guess it has some newer technology thought but still.
Thx 4 the replays

Yea if you plan to play some of the newer games like BFBC2 or BF3 I'd recommend upgrading the CPU before GPU because that will lower your FPS even with a new card and that will be a waste.

For my motherboard Asus p5n-d what cpu should I get?
That would go well with a Gigabyte GeForce GTX 560Ti 1GB PhysX Windforce 2X
Will my motherbord be good enough? dont want to buy new 1 :p

Well if your going to get a new CPU and GPU even though the old CPU may bottleneck the new GPU you would still see the biggest jump in performance getting the GPU first. Most games are much more GPU intensive than they are CPU intensive. So getting a new GPU befor the CPU would not be a wast at all. In order of importance gaming is as follows GPU>CPU>RAM. So I would suggest upgrading the GPU first unless you will be doing both in a short time span. Upgrading your CPU first and having to wait until later will have you not seeing a very good boost in FPS wile gaming.

Price aside the best GPU you listed there is the MSI Twin Frozer. The cooler that comes with that card will allow you to do some mean overclocking and even if you dont OC the card it will be much quieter.

okey thx, well how much noise it makes dosnt rly matter since I have my pc in the room next to the room im sitting in.
But the Gigabyte GTX 560Ti 1GB Super Overclock 1Ghz is better then the MSI Twin Frozer.

Good Review of the Gigabyte GTX 1Ghz

Is the card your looking at $259 like on new egg? If so I would Suggest paying $20 more and getting a 6950 2 GB. Dont trust me look at benchmarks its a better card. Im not aggenst Nvidia its just that the 570 is closer to $370. Look into it For the $20 more you will get better performance hands down.
