what part of the world do you live in? the gtx 560 looks great, performs really well on resolutions not exceeding 1920x1080 - although like you, I cant find a review for that specific card

if you can find below MSI 560 card, the price difference (approx 10 USD - nothing in the scheme of what you are already paying) is probably worth it providing your case is cool enough (so you can do further OC at home):

MSI N560GTX Twin Frozr II/OC

lol i am the same - I once needed to replace a blown 8800 GT (to continue gaming!) and rushed straight down to PCWorld (high street retailer) and got an awful HD 4650 - god that sucked. a few weeks later I had enough and needed a new card that could actually handle gaming and purchased HD 4870 online for similar price - the performance difference was huge and I did regret the hasty purchase of the HD 4650

the difference between the models we have discussed (gtx 560 / gtx 560 frozr) is not huge and maybe you wouldnt notice

If the 10 USD is a problem, the model you have selected looks fine, it doesnt come with a factory overclock or the upgraded cooling solution of the frozr edition but I'm certain with the 2 fan cooling solution and the huge heat sink it should OC at home towards 900MHz (using MSI Afterburner or similar) - thus surpassing the default clock speed of the frozr edition (870MHz) - the frozr can be likely be overclocked at home to 950MHz or over 1GHz in the right case

I think most folk would still go for the upgraded solutions if they are available at just 10 USD more. these cards (arguably) have longer lifespan and (definitely) more overclocking headroom due to the higher quality/durability of the parts used and the upgraded cooling solutions

these newegg customers are very happy with the card you've chosen - check their reviews:

it will runs things very nicely at 1920x1080 or below

MSI N560GTX-M2D1GD5 =11,500 indian rupees (230 us dollars)

i would go with the 2gb model.

if money is not a issue go with dual amd 6950's. Those are insane and offer great performance. (just my $0.02 speaking)

Here you can see a comparison of temps and O.C.'s.

http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum/hardware-canucks-r...

The MSI Twin Frozr II get's better temps than the Asus card.So the final decisoin is really up to you(or your friend).They are both really good cards so it doesn't really matter either way but if want superior cooling then go with the MSI.

Unless your friend is planning on going with a multiple monitor setup such as Eyefinity or Nvidia 3d Surround theirs really no need to go for the 2GB version since theirs no performance difference at 1080p.

But if money is not an issue then why not go for a GTX570 or GTX580?

What are your friends full system specs?(CPU,RAM,etc.)

the factory overclocked is superior is every way I can think of, the regular GTX 560 is a very good card also

if you can - as I suggested before - go for the frozr version, they receive very good reviews from impartial sources

just be sure o the usual stuff:

Do I have room in the case for the model of card I am buying?
Do I have a PCIe lane spare and can it be accessed? (other components in your case may encroach on the space used for PCIe lane)
Is my PSU good enough to cope with demand of the system with a GTX 560 onboard?

If you are sure the card will fit and all other requirements have been met - go for it. You will have lots of fun with your new card!

the processor is intel i5 2500k
motherboard is p8z68-v

as the set up is intel one.....
i too suggested the same choice of your as to pick up 2gb so that he can future proof with more memory on gpu


is this the same reason you too are suggesting 2gb one ??

    i suggested him to select the 2gb one because ... i thought it would be helpful in future games with more ram


    is this the same reason you are suggesting the 2gb one ??

    he wont use any mutliple monitors setup
    will the 2gb wont be useful if no multiple monitors are used ??
