  1. It depends on which game.But normally yes, it is good for any game at 1080p or below.

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

    What is the male/model of your PSU?
  2. yes its a great card for single monitor. im still pretty happy with my radeon 5770 and this card does about double the fps in everything. now dont expect max settings in BF3 but it will do great on high.
  3. exactly gtx560ti is pretty good gpu for all games and can run on high setting.
  4. It is a great card for 1080p but not higher than that.

    ASUS P8Z68-V PRO mobo
    G. Skill 8gb ram kit
    Asus Xonar DG 5.1 Surround Sound Card
    Pioneer DVRS19LBK
    Corsair Carbide 500R
    Western Digital 2TB SATA 6Gbps

  6. can it? so shall i get a sound card?
  7. do i need a sound card for a 5.1 surround sound speaker system?
  8. i havent got it yet but on a video review is has a red,black and green connectors you plug in your sound card.
  9. i have got rid of the sound card.

    so is the gtx 560 worth buying?
  10. The Ti version is a great car more suited for SLi than anything else. it scales nicely but I will have to agree with 384-Bit and spend the little extra on a 570. This will get better performance and last longer, it is also closer to what the 560 Ti will become after the refresh happens later this year.

    Do remember that sound cards can effect gaming performance but i will not go into detail as this is not my area of expertise ;)



    In a good or a bad way ?

    A refresh?
  13. You know that your mobo has a much better audio chip than that add on card right?

    In a bad way.The higher the quality of audio the bigger strain is put on the CPU.But that doesn't effect the OP because the sound card is worse than the onboard audio chip and the 2500k should have no problem keeping up either way.

    Tell us your budget and we can find something that will better suite your needs.

    Actually the GTX5xx series was just a refresh of the 4xx series(they are still using the fermi architechture).It's the 6xx series that will feature a new arch.Which means it should be even better than the GTX5 series.
  15. Oh I see.I hadn't read that yet so I figured he was talking about the GTX6xx series.My bad.

    I saw an article the other day that suggested that the first 6xx series cards will just be a node shrink of the current arch.

    They must not be ready yet then.That's what AMD should have done with the Phenom ii's.

    If those specs you listed above is just your build list then I would ditch the sound card.It's only $30 but it's useless,as I said before the sound chip on the mobo is way better.Also could you either state the price of each componet or say how much you have left to spend on a GPU.
  20. well i have £250 on a graphics card
  21. ok nice one :)
  22. Well if your budget is that much than you should get a GTX570.

    I would say that PNY GTX570 is the probably going to be the best you can get.I was looking on amazon and all of the GTX570's on there are 300 euros and up.Very expensive.
  23. with 250 euro, I vote for the 6970

    That is not entirely true. The Radeon 5770 is worse than the GTX 560 Ti in perfomance and this becomes from someone who used to own a pair of them.
