GTX 560 Ti vs non ti

Hi,

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.

In other words are 386CUDA cores (ti) better than 336 (non ti)?Whats the difference in FPS?Or in general tell me how much FPS does ti have more than non ti.

I dont want to pay 60 euros more just for 2-3 FPS.

Thank you so much

  1. 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."
  2. 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?
  3. its a silverstone 550watt maybe i will stick with what tonee said.Thanks.i have one hard drive and 1 dvd drive
  4. I have a 520w Corsair power supply and I'm running a 6970 overclocked with no problems whatsoever. 550w should be fine.
  5. o_O I dont know about my psu though is silverstone good PSU
  6. What's the exact model of your PSU? I'm sure if it meets the minimum requirements of the video card then you shouldn't have too much of a problem.

    Minimum requirements for the EVGA GTX 560 Ti:
    - 500 Watt or greater power supply (Minimum recommended power supply with +12 Volt current rating of 30 Amps.)
  7. The 560ti has 8 cores instead of 7 and has more shaders than the 560.
  8. http://reviews.cnet.com/power-supplies/hec-win-power-550ab/1707-9987_7-32155519.html

    Here is my PSU. Do you think it can handle a AMD OC 6950?
  9. Max 12V amps is ~25, so if 30A is really necassery it won't be enough.

    You see, not only wattage does matter . . .

    You mean from my PSU?
  12. 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.
  13. Jeeez, that was hard to find, grmbl, grmbl. Anyway, got it i think ( though it's not the same one as i found earlier )

    HEC WIN 550AB -- ~76% Efficiency -- (Phased out)
    +3.3V: 38A | +5V: 32A | +12V1: 18A | +12V2: 17A
    +3.3V & +5V limit: 120W | +12V limit: ~25A
    Rated power: ~550W

    Yop have to scroll 3/4 down ; http://www.tipidpc.com/viewtopic.php?tid=182400&page=1

    Still can't stand not finding the other one.
  14. Another one ( still not the one from this morning, grrrrrrrrrrrrrr ) ; http://skateboxx.wordpress.com/2010/05/25/psu-101-a-guide-and-qa-for-psu/

    On the other hand if this is true it would be 35A ; Win 550AB (Model Name: HEC-550TW-ATF), i saw that one at 35A.

    Aaaaaaaah !!!! I give up, been looking now for 1 or 2 hours, i'm done with it, sorry.

    I will get a 6950 i will just buy a bequeit or probablyy a corsair 650W and i am done :hello:
  16. 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.
