Hi all and thanks for looking at my question. I just bought 2 zotac 560 ti AMP! Gpus and plan to either sell them after the prices rises again or to keep them and sli them. My question is whether or not I should keep my brand new evga 560 ti 448 FTW (if it works with my psu) or sli my zotacs and, possibly, get a new psu


Here are my specs and the best stats I could find on the zotac for power consumption:

Everything in your system is fine to run even the most powerful GPU's.The only thing that may be a problem is what type of PSU your using.

What is the make/model of your PSU?

Basicly the GTX560ti 448Core version is just a slimed down version of the GTX570(Don't see what all the hype was about).

If your looking for the best performance "now" then a regular GTX560ti SLI is much more powerful than a single GTX560ti 448Core.
But if you want the most performance a little later then getting a 2nd GTX560ti 448Core for SLI would be the best.

@ OP
I don't understand how many cards you have, anyway 2 is always better than one. 2 GTX 560ti in SLI outperform a single GTX 580. The new GTX 560ti 448 for is pretty useless, a good OCed standard GTX 560ti can achieve similar results.

But you do need a new PSU.

But you should screw up OCZ and get a Corsair, Antec, Seasonic........

Depends on the ocz psu you're mentioning; some of the ocz psus are good quality. Same goes for the cooler master psus everyone writes them off as poor quality when certain lines like the silent pro which I own are high quality

I wasn't discrediting your statement; just making those that view this thread that every company has their high end amd good quality merch. With that said, those brands mentioned have some horrible lines that should be avoided. If op is going to go with a new psu, corsair and seasonic as mentioned already are great brands and will suffice his need regardless of line from either brand

As a pretext, I've read lots of negative stuff about fatal1ty but I don't really care about that...It's not going to deter me from buying a product if people are put off by a media-created gamer/celeb....
