hi
i am planning on buying a new graphic card in a couple of days. i have done a little research and narrowed down my search to 2 cards Nvidia GTX560ti or GTX570.
as per nvidia the 570 has more cuda cores and better bandwidth for memory and is pricier than the 560ti but with clocks. and the 560ti has better clock speeds and is cheaper.
i am comparing only the refrence cards from nvidia .
i know some of the overclocked 560ti cards can be as expensive as stock running 570's.
shpuld i buy the 570 which has better memory bandwidth (320 bit) with lower clock speeds or should i buy the 560ti with lower memory bandwidth (256 bit) but better clock speds.

please suggest the right choice as i am new to graphic cards and i have been able to get to short listing these two cards after spending hours forums but still cant make up my mind.

other thing to consider is that i am currently using the corsair GS600 which is 600 watts 80plus broze certified smps. will it be able to run 570 or 560ti.

Thanks.

What's your monitor maximum resolution ?

If you have the money I'd go with the 570. However depending on which games you play or plan to play maybe you don't need the power of the 570, in which case the 560ti would be fine. Which games you looking to play AND at what screen resolution?

I'm running a pair of GTX560Ti's on a Corsair 620w PSU.

hi everyone thanks for reply,
my screens resolution is 1920X1280 but i dont play games at that resolution ( i would love to if my graphic card permits). i am planning on buying the battlefield 3 soon and i am currently playing the RAGE and my CRYSIS 2 dvd will be shipped in 2days.

thanks mousemonkey. i knew i made a right choice the moment i picked up that corsair gs600.

1920 × 1200 ? or 1920 × 1080 ? if you'll be running games above 1080P the more VRAM of the GTX 570 would help much.

Anyway, GTX 570 is faster than GTX 560Ti, it's about 23% faster than the GTX 560Ti, even SuperOverclocked cards are still 11% slower than a single GTX 570.
And if you're able to OC the GTX 560Ti don't forget you still able to OC the GTX 570 and get more out of it.

I recommend getting the 560 ti, preferable the twin frozr 2 model by msi or the ds version by EVGA. The dual fans will keep the card quiet and cool, and has great overclocking capability's. When overclocked to about 1ghz it will be on par with a 570 in performance. Saving you about a 100 bucks. But if you have the extra hundred to spend then you can go with the 570 and then overclock that. I'm assuming you have a case with good cooling as well so overclocking shouldn't be an issue. And with programs like msi afterburner making it a walk in the park.

Also your 600 watt will be plenty. these cards can run off of even a 500 watt power supply.

thanks guys. i have made up my mind i will go for the 570. i think 570 will give me a little bit better future proofing as well..

thanks again for the replies.

Wait until the new 560ti's come out???? They are supposed to have almost the same performance as a 570.

hah! then they will also upgrade gtx 570 and the power of 570 will be double of 560.
