I am planning to upgrade my GPU on my PC since now i have an GTX 460 GAINWARD 768MB and it kinda sucks .I have an i5 2500k.My friend at start recommended me to get a AMD 6950 gigabyte 3 fans edition but i needed a new PSU (650watt i heard) i have 550 watt now so i decided to get a gtx 560 cuz it doesnt need more than 500 watts less.So i am arguing which version to get.First i went for Gigabyte GTX 560 non ti but i think Ti is better cuz it has more Cuda cores?Then i found the MSI but i didnt want to voltage change (want to oc it to 1GHZ) and then i found the GIGABYTE GTX 560 ti SOC 950MHz edition.The price for the SOC is 260euros the MSI 220 and the gigabyte non ti 200.So is the Ti much better than non ti?Bcz my friend says to get the gigabyte gtx 560 non ti cuz he has it on 1ghz with no voltage changing.
I've played on two very similar computers (only mobo & ram were different) and one had the 560 while the other had the 560Ti. From what I've seen, the "Ti" always had at least 10-15fps higher than the regular 560, which during gameplay, most people can't even tell the difference. However, playing the same game with the same settings (maxed out), the "Ti" DID run a lot smoother, while the regular 560 was choppy in some areas with high action.
I'm not sure how much more euros the cards are from each other in your area, but it's about a 40-50 dollar difference here in the states. For that amount, I would gladly pay more money for the "Ti."
What all else do you have running in your system? If you just have a DVD drive and a couple HDD's or SSD's and a quality brand 550w power supply you should be able to run a single 6950 as long as you don't heavily overclock it. What is the exact power supply you have?
Yep, according to a review i found this morning at work it has. Should have mentioned the link, because i'm at home now and can't find the site anymore . . .
The 550 ub has 35A combined, the ab would be less. I'll keep on looking for the site i found this morning, can't stand not finding it now.
Make sure when you're shopping for a PSU, you look at the wattage and the amps off the 12v rail. It's very important that the 12v rail is supplying enough juice because most changes are, that rail will be feeding your video card power.
