Well the 560 Ti is a solid performer Ill tell you that but with all the speculation on the Kepler's strength I would wait a bit longer (that would mean that you would have to wait for reviews and stocks coming in though) so if you could wait then wait for it (it may be worth it) if you cant the just get the 560 Ti and SLI (but I do sometimes wish that I went with a 570 since prices dropped here).

Probably you have to wait till Quarter 2 to get GTX Keplers, so I will say it's better to get 560 ti now.

Shoot you I did think about that and I don't mind being a Ginny pig for these new cards... like in my original post I'm willing to wait 1-3 months 2 months for release date and the third for the actual card being sold... but I'm tired of gaming on Intel graphics lol so I hope its not until Q2

I remember waiting through delay after delay for Fermi only to find out that the 480 was a toaster.

Stop waiting, start playing. Get your 560ti its a great card, enjoy it, watch Kepler and if you like it, sell the 560ti and buy a Kepler.

For 1920x1080, a single GTX570 should be sufficient. In fact, since you said "high" and not "ultra" or "maxed" settings, a single GTX560Ti will do; you won't need to SLI them.
Alternatively, pick up a cheap GT440 right now, just to get off Intel HD Graphics (I'm not even sure what games you could possibly be [enjoying] playing on that). Then consider Kepler when it's out and reviewed.

I'd go ahead and get a GTX 560 TI -448 now and then SLi them later, skip Kepler..


The 448 is a limited edition chip and will have poor availability vs a regular 560ti in the future. It's not that they will be impossible to find used - it's just that there will be far more 560ti available making the used price of the rare 448 rather prohibitive. Of course, that is speculation, but it is hard to recommend a "future" 560ti 448 setup.

I am in the same boat with you Drift, I already have one GTX 560 TI, and i am trying to figure should i wait for kepler or SLI. I have everything i need to SLI other than another GTX 560 TI

The only reason I want to SLI is so I can play games on high settings in 2-3 years from now.. and if I end up going with the 560 ti it would look like I will be getting a Maxwell card in the future

I recently built a system with a gtx 560 ti 448 classified from evga, and overclocked, it gets equal performance to a gtx 580, and cost a just a hair under 300 bucks. Add to that the step up program from EVGA, and I don't see any reason whatsoever to wait.

So I've decided on two 560 ti.. the question now is will 2 560 ti be able to max out or play games at at high settings until Maxwell is released

disagree..


Again, this is speculation. But how do you disagree? Do you think there will be more 560ti 448s available used in a year or two than 560tis? Do you think the rarity of the 560ti 448 will actually make it less expensive? Do you disagree with the law of supply and demand?

It's also listed on the Nvidia website as a 'Limited Edition'.
