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?

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.

It is a great card for 1080p but not higher than that.

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?

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.

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.

well i have £250 on a graphics card

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.

with 250 euro, I vote for the 6970
