Close call, the performance is about the same. The 560 overclocks better but even then it is about the same as a oc'd 6870. 560 has PhysX if you like that. Amd has better colors i think, nvidea does better with bling bling like metal shine ( can't come up with the right word fot that ) on cannons.
So if i were you and if your sure your system can handle these cards i would save just that 40 or 50 dollars more and get the 560 TI.

PSU is so fine and so great, but there's a one little problem... you might be bottlenecked by the CPU if you play at 1080P, i guess you should buy a second hand intel C2Q and you should be fine

ive read that at higher res the less bottleneck so... i dont know why r u saying that 1080p its ok... and have seen many 6850, 6870 with my cpu.... maybe it wont be bottlenecking that much... ur thread is about a gtx 560 ti... im talking about gtx 560 non ti... much less powered...

the non ti 560 is a great card but not at $200, i got mine at 180 and just overclocked it....I suggest checking out newegg and getting the same twin frozr ii i got for $180 after MIR (MSI was quick and good on it)...currently have it overclocked to the following:

970 core
1940 shader
2150 mem

People say its the same card as the 460 are incorrect by a mile and a half...

I will post link to bechmark images so you can see how it performs, just give me an hour or so...also, take a look here
http://www.overclockers.com.au/article.php?id=959736&P=...

Also, I have vids up of Bad Company 2 maxed and Crysis 2 maxed with Blackfire mod, performance is also there in video notes...
Bad Company 2

Crysis 2 BlackFire mod
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YoColCztWMs

like i said, give me an hour or so and ill let you know on benchmarks such as unigine, metro, and 3dmark11...

my specs are
AMD Phenom X4 3.0 Deneb (stock)
4Gigs of Ram DDR2 @800
MSI Twin Frozr ii 560 GTX non ti

Dunno bud...got it about a year and a half ago, almost 2 i believe...

Honestly im sure having my CPU and Ram in stock is holding me back, but I currently have stock heatsink on CPU...gonna overclock it once I get some better cooling for it...

As it is, the card performs like I expected...

you are welcome...like i said, if you can get it around the price i did, its a great buy...if you can only find it in your area for over 200, check to see how much more the ti is. If its not much, go for the ti otherwise the non ti is a great card
