Do you have a budget amount in mind ?

EVGA 012-P3-2066-KR GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 448 Cores FTW 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
$289.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

If this card is in you budget range then this would be a great card and it was just released with the addition of 112 proccessing cores for added performance. A regular 560Ti has 336 proccessor cores and this new one has 448. If it is out of your budget range then you could consider this one;

EVGA SuperClocked 01G-P3-1563-AR GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
$239.99 with a $20 rebate makes it $219.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

This chart will give you a good idea where the cards fall as far as performance level , and as you can see the 550Ti is several levels below the 560Ti and by going with two 550Ti's you will be up to the performance of the 560Ti and by going with the one 560Ti and adding another latter you can get to a performance level that is higher than a GTX 580.

thanks for the quick answers, yeah i guess i will stick with the 560ti for the chance to make a sli later, i think on spending up to 340$, the problem is that in my country the prices are a bit higher just checked a 560ti is 315$ and i don't know if it have the additional cores, gonna check that.

You will be happy with the 560Ti 448 if you can get one for a reasonable price otherwise the 560Ti will be good.. Good Hunting.

If you're not going to spend a penny more on graphics cards for this system in the future then 550Ti SLI is good.

A radeon 6950 2gb is almost identical in terms of performance (unless you're game favours nvidia inherently) but thats 1 card...so it gives you the option to add another card later after a few months or a year. Adding a 3rd 550Ti or 4th won't scale more than 40-50%..thats how multi card setups work.

If you really want a good longer lasting card for the same price....wait for 7870/7850 thats going to be available in Jan/Feb 2012. Those 2 cards will be as good as 6970/6950 2gb from the current generation. You can even see the stats that were leaked if you google Amd 7000 specs.

Go for the 560ti 448 or 560ti, I would'nt recomend the 550ti SLI. If you wish to push your performance later you can get another 560ti.

MSI make great cards at the mo , the Twin Frozr cooling on them are excellent , temps are good , overclocks very well and the fans aren't loud.

The above article compared the EVGA, Gigabyte and MSI models and it ranked the EVGA best for value and performance. I do tend to agree with monsta though. I have a Twin Frozr 570 card and I am VERY pleased with the temps and noise. The article just offers you some charts to look at.

560Ti 448 is a good card..but its terribly priced right now...you're a lot better off begging someone for the extra $20 and getting a GTX 570. Don't eat out for a week...lol but get a GTX 570 its a much better deal than 560ti 448. Infact you can get a 6970 2gb for the price of a 560ti 448 because they do intersect that 290-300$ mark. Especially during christmas.

I don't want to start the GTX 570 vs 6970 debate....but in the long run that 2gb frame buffer does mean more eye candy..and more eye candy means better graphics...thats my take. But GTX 570 is still a much better deal than 560ti 448.

i hate prices here .... 560ti = 315$ 570(1.3gb) = 490$ 570(2.5gb) = 515$ and 6970(2gb) = 510$

sooo 560ti still winning

Get the 560ti , its affordable for you and will have the performance you will be happy with, a 570 seems to be too expensive for you there.

500 watt is recomended on a good quality PSU for a single 560ti with 30amps on 12volt rail, 650 - 700 Watt on a good quality psu for SLI
