  1. Hi :)

    Well you wont be running any games on Ultra or even Max with that card....

    All the best Brett :)
  2. Processor Intel Core i5 - 2400 em = GOOD
    Cooling system 2440Cooler Master = DONT KNOW WHAT THIS IS BUT YOU WANT A COOLER MASTER 212 EVO
    Motherboard ASUS P8H67M LE (B3) = OK, Z68 board would be better
    Memory 8GB DDR3 1333MHz Corsair = GOOD
    Hard Disk 1Tb SATA-III Seagate Barracuda = GOOD
    video card GeForce GTX560 Zotac PCI-E 1024Mb = GOOD
    Power supply unit 550W AeroSool the VP-550 = NOT GOOD BUY A 500 to 600w UNIT FROM CORSAIR or XFX
  3. why? the card not suitable for gaming? or not compatible with others components?

    I said it was GOOD.
  5. ok.. you mean i need to change the brand for power supply? 550 watts is quit enough right?
  6. yes 550w is enough but you need a better brand like corsair or xfx.
  7. ok.. thank you Uther39.. =)
  8. That card is decent, few more bucks you can get a 6870 which would probably out perform that version of the 560.

    I dont know what brett is talking about. The 560 is a very good card. As for he psu, yh you should get another one, if you have the money i would recommend a seasonic s12ii
  10. The non Ti version is garbage.

    That's harsh language. How about the Ti version is much better if you want to game. vrumor, from your sig, I can see that you have a 7970 and that's amazing but hasnol is trying to put together a mid range budget gamer. Let's remember to help those that can't plunk down oodles of $$$ for 7970's.

    If he can push to a 560ti then do it but the 560 is not garbage for a mid range gaming pc.
  13. how about hd 6870? is it better than gtx 560?
  14. hasnol: Toms has a great chart area that compares video cards. Here's the link for the comparison of a 6870 to a 560gtx. They appear to be pretty close.

    BTW, the 560gtx is the first card eventhough it lists something about Walmart. How much $$ do you have to put toward the video card?
  15. Sorry just trying to inject some honesty. Let me re-phrase, in the same price range of that 560 you can get a better card.
