ASUS cards has "Bus Standard : PCI Express 2.1" and my mobo has 2.0 interface.
Will that card work fine in 2.0?

  1. A PCIe 2.1 Card will work fine in a PCIe 2.0 Slot.

    I suggest one of the 6950s over the 560 Ti. Here is a review comparing them:

    The MSI card has a better cooler so you will be able to overclock better, so out of the cards you posted, that is my recommendation.

    Thanks for the reply..
    any other MSI card you want to recommend?
  3. I would recommend the MSI GTX 560 Ti Twin Frozr II if you have to buy now. If you can wait a tiny bit longer, an upgraded version of the GTX 560 Ti will be released which should put a nice nail in the HD 6950's coffin.

    Let me see more reply, then i will decide..
  8. AMD has drivers problem...? Right?
  9. No more problems than Nvidia. In the old days, AMD (or ATI) had more driver problems, but these days they are about even.

    AMD actually has better optimization for crossfire than Nvidia does for SLI currently.

    Not that it is incredibly relevant to what you want, but the idea that AMD is behind Nvidia on the driver scene is dated.

    ok, got it..:)
  11. Don't worry about driver issues, both companies have their shares of issues. I recommended the nVIDIA card because I have been using their products for over 10 years so they hold a soft spot in my heart.

    No one really knows when the updated GTX 560 Ti will be released but I recommend waiting until the last minute and if it's not out by the time you have to order a card then purchase a GTX 560 Ti or an HD 6950, whichever you prefer.

    Hello. Since you can wait till 10th december you can buy the new GTX560 448cores. It will be out at 29th of november.
    Techpowerup article:
    Everything You Need To Know About GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores
    On the 29th of this month, NVIDIA will launch its newest graphics card SKU, the GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores.

    edit: I guess an MSI Hawk version of this card will cannibalize the stock clocked 570 :P
