I'm in the process of choosing parts for a new computer and have settled on the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 ti. Which of the many manufacturers do you all recommend? Are the EVGA cards okay? I'm looking for stability and fewest problems! Thanks
I don't know about EVGA, but Asus and MSI are good. I'm using MSI card, myself (OC version). If I didn't get the MSI version, I'd go for Asus one. However, I've heard that EVGA is good, too!
As an MSI user, I can say that the card runs great, maxing out every game out there @1080p (even Crysis 2 with new high-res pack and DX11), runs cool (38C idle, 70C full load, but that will be probably much lower for you, since I live in a hot country) and the MSI Afterburner software is great - all kinds of OC, fan tuning and monitoring.
P.S. You might also want to check this article Tom's did for GTX 560 Ti.
I am currently running an ASUS GTX 560Ti and it overclocks like crazy with MSI afterburner. I have not had one issue with this ASUS card. I have also used EVGA cards in the past and had no issues as well. My brother in law will only get MSI cards and lives by them.
With those 3 options, you should have a good variety.
GOLDEN EDITION !!!!!! It's the best version of 560Ti, but it's pretty expensive and if memory serves me well, for that money you can get a GTX570 and for sure a faster HD6950 *faster than 560Ti not 570*.
