New system build, including new monitor won't happen until mid or end of next year.
I'm looking to buy new Nvidia card mainly for Skyrim.
I would like to play it on High settings, Ultimate if possible.
Noise level while not playing and reliability are very important for me.
Should I try to buy video card with clock speed as close to reference card is possible?
Should I buy video card with two fans or one?
Which brand is the most reliable currently?
I narrowed it down to: EVGA, MSI, Asus and Gigabyte.
I like the fact that EVGA AR series cards have lifetime warranty.
Not sure if their one fan design provides enough cooling power though.
Budget is around: $230.
Currently considering: GTX460, GTX 560 or 560 Ti?
Please suggest a video card that would work for my current setup without bottlenecking CPU and using current PSU, as well as match my requirements and last at least 3 years.
I agree with clutchc the GTX 560 ti would be the one to get. Also the two fan one is good or you get the cyclone fan on the card if you have the room. I have read a lot of good reviews on that type of cooler. My next upgrade will be with two of them or I am going water cooled. Good luck and good luck with your build next year.
