GTX 560 Ti 2GB or GTX 570?

Hello people!

I'm just wondering if I would benefit in any way by getting a GTX 560 Ti 2GB as opposed to getting a GTX 570 (1280MB). I game on a 1920x1080 res and maybe occasionally will be gaming 3d. I might also go with a 2GB 6950 but from what i have read nvidia generally has a more consistent higher fps in a wide range of games (if that makes sense). Normally I would chose the higher end card but I have heard newer games are beginning to take advantage of more memory (1.5GB for example)? Not sure how true this is.


Thank you to everyone in advanced

  1. A 560ti 448 core 1.2GB would be a good recomendation, its perfromance is close to a GTX 570.
    Just noticed you are in Australia, don't see the 448m cores anywhere here for sale unfortunately so a GTX 570 would be better than the standard 560ti.
    A 6950 or 560ti 2GB versions are also a great choice with 2GB vram which is good for games that need the extra vram.

  2. Do you know if any of the cards they sell are reference design? I want to watercool the cpu and gpu (I know I don't have to but I have a fetish for watercooling)

    Hahaha me too.
    Unfortunately I don't see any reference cards at all on the site.
    You might have to look elsewhere for them.
    Never tried this brand , but that has the reference design to it

    The answer to that is a definite no unless you plan on getting a second card and using 3 monitor Nvidia Surround.
  5. yay for watercooling! haha

    That card is a bit out my price range tho :(
    I might contact pccasegear and see if they are able to get the EVGA 560 Ti

    thanks anyway, discovered a new site :)
