    If you are trying to keep this cheap and do not mind overclocking get the 460 hawk, it can and does put up 560 numbers easily. I'd get the hawk but the last zotac card is pretty sweet man, I game with AMD currently and I love it but the cards you have up get the recommendations above.

    Im putting this up for reference

  2. I dont want to overclock b/c i never have overclock nothing b4 and dont want to mess the card up.The gtx 560 zotac amp is nice but i wonder if at clock at 950 will it get hot?

    not with that cooling
  5. 6870 crossfire is about equal to 560 Ti SLi.

    Well in that one the 560 performs a bit better winning 4 and losing 2, mostly due to winning the older dx10 games 3-0 and losing 2/3 dx11 ones.

    They are about the same and in other sites you will see the 6870's overturning that lead.

    Here for example - http://www.hardwareheaven.com/reviews/1104/pg1/asus-geforce-gtx-560-ti-directcu-ii-top-review-and-sli-performance-introduction.html 5 wins to the 6870's and 2 wins to the 560 Ti's.
