Is the 560 448 cores worth it over a 570?

More about cores worth
  1. Get the 570. The 560 with 448 cores is essentially a crippled 570.
  2. Get the 448 cores, even though it's "crippled," you still save $70 for nearly the same performance. Plus, you won't even be able to tell the difference while gaming besides the extra 70 bucks lost in which you could almost buy an SSD with, or a fancy dinner for two.
  3. overclock the hell out of it and you have yourself a 570
  4. My previous EVGA 448 cores with an 850mhz core OC got slightly better benchmarks than my friends EVGA SC 570(797mhz). Almost identical setup besides the brands we used in our rigs.

    The clock speeds are significantly different. You get what you pay for.
  6. What do you mean? There's only like a 50mhz difference in clock speed; overclocking is ALWAYS an option...........

    Maybe it's an option for you. You can't assume everyone is willing to damage and/or void the warranty on their gpu. The question was which one to get. The 570 is a better board in any scenario. He didnt ask which card was better bang for buck.
  8. The GTX 570 is a better option and if not you can just save money and get a GTX 560ti and over clock it to same speed as GTX 570 surpassing the need for the GTX 448 all together.
  9. I guess ill go with the 570 I'm not good at OC'ing

    Okay, I give you that one... The 570 is the better card between the two he posted up.

    However, being that this is a technical forum, we as members would still like to inform the OP about both of the cards, their capabilities, price to performance ratio, and so for. The OP may not have asked which card was the better bang for his buck, if he cared about voiding warranty, and/or etc... but it's still in his best interest to know all of this info so he could at least have knowledge of what he's getting himself into.

    OP, here's a good read if you want to know more about the 448 cores:

    Good luck with whatever you chose.
