Which 560 Ti?

I made a thread about this a couple of weeks ago but I am back again to ask this. The GTX 570 and 560 Ti. I can't decide. I am looking forward for my card lasting a while. I do not want to get a new one in a year or two. I want to play games on max settings on 1920x1080. From what I have heard, both of these can do this similarly. The only thing I dislike about the 570 is the price range. I am looking at the EVGA 560 Ti for $250. The EVGA 570, $340. A $90 dollar difference is big. I am also on a $250-300 budget. If spending that extra $90 will be good for the long run, I would go with the 570. But then as soon as I am about to make up my mind, I hear things about the 560 Ti being overclocked to match the 570. Then that is when it gets me. If that is the case, I would have an extra $90. I could use that $90 to buy more RAM, or just save up. This is the last time I will be asking this question. It has got me spending hours and hours trying to find out which is better. And for those who are wondering, I only plan to use one card and one monitor. I don't want two of each. Looking at the benchmark.. the 570 beats the 560 Ti at almost everything. Please.. help me make this decision before I go insane.

Why don't you split the difference and get the GTX 560 Ti 448 cores? Right within your budget, more performance than the 560 Ti 384 core version, and when overclocked faster than a stock GTX 570.

Thanks for the replies so far. I do not know much, but do the 448 cores make a huge difference compared to 384? The main reason the EVGA GTX 560 Ti (384 Core) caught my eye was for the warranty. If something was to happen to the card in two months I would be out of luck. I have taken the 570 out of my choices. It cost way too much for me. I just want to know the best 560 Ti now. I know EVGA is known for its warranty's and customer service. Like I said before, the one you recommended looked nice, I just worry about the warranty. Would any one of you vouch for the EVGA GTX 560 Ti Classified? It is $300 but the ratings are good. But then again I don't know if the warranty is good on it. As for which company to go with, like I said I am looking with EVGA. I have never bought from them, but their customers for the most part are very happy with what they get. Another card (ugh) which came up when I was looking was the Twin Frozr 560 Ti. I also read about the 1GB vs 2GB and am completely clueless on this. I feel I still have many more days of staring into the monitor until I finally make up my mind about this. I have never been this confused in my life.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ------- Many people recommended. Warranty is :ange:  Also have heard it can OC to 1000Mhz.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ------- Same as the EVGA 560 Ti 384 Core.. just 2GB. Dunno about this one. Warranty is :??: 

Like I said.. this will be a long and difficult process for me to make up my mind. Thank you for those who are helping me. :??:

I'd go far the 3rd choice. Not lifetime warranty but still a great warranty. I'd say warranty is a :)  rather than a :??:  .

With eVGA you get either a 3year or Lifetime warranty. With MSI, you get a 3 year warranty. Of course, these warranties are based on the buyer being a resident of the US or Canada.

With eVGA, a card with an AR suffix has a lifetime warranty, a KR suffix has a 3year warranty.

If you have the money, I'd recommend either this card:

Or, if money is that big an issue, this card:

If someone could answer my question since I'm a noob and don't understand. Would there be a big difference between the 384 Core and 448 Core in terms of gaming? I have also decided to remove the 2GB due to the price. I wouldn't pay that extra $50 for 1 more GB. So far, I am still hoping someone will vouch and finally make me choose the 560 Ti with 384 Core unless someone convinces me the 448 Core make a big difference. Thanks.

Thanks for the reply. As far as money goes, going with the first choice wouldn't be bad. It would only cost $20 more than the 560 Ti 448 Core I want to get. So far most of you have vouched for the 448 Core. Maybe I will soon change my mind from the 384 Core to the 448.

He was talking about the 384 core, not the 448 so I decided to post hawk. Other wise get the twinfrozr iii 560 448.

The 560Ti 448 should provide a 5-15% (rough guestimate) performance gain over the GTX560Ti 384. Whether or not it's actually worth the price difference, depends on the actual price difference at the time of purchase and how much you value the performance difference.

The 448 will run with a 570. The 384 does not. It also has 1280 mb of vram and a higher bus width. More ram more cores more bandwith. Faster

Thanks for the clarification on the 384/448 Core deal. The benchmark posted even showed the difference was noticeable. As for overclocking, how does the 448 handle? As I look at the 448, I keep looking at the core clock and see it has 797MHz while the 384 has 850. Not a huge difference right? But if I were to overclock the 448, would it be possible to reach close to if not 900/1000MHz? The reason I became interested in the 560 Ti was because of what I heard with the overclocking ability. The 384 had really good results when I saw the benchmarks when it was overclocked. Wondering if the 448 will have similar results?

The 560Ti HAWK requires heavy overclocking to do so, whereas the 560Ti 448 can do it at stock clocks in some cases.

Take the overclocking capability youve heard about with the 384 core and add it to thw extra power of the 448.

This chart shows the performance advantage for the 448 core in a variety of games and benchmarks. The extra memory helps when AA is turned on.



When overclocked, the 448 core beats a GTX 570 in every benchmark:

Wow that is really incredible. For a 560 Ti 448 Core to beat a 570 is really impressive. Just because of those benchmarks, I am going with the 448 Core. Sure, it may not be lifetime warranty but 3 years is still plenty (I hope.) Sadly, I could have saved an extra $20, but the deal is ending today so it looks like I'll have to pay $290 for the 448 Core. If it can OC to speeds like that, I guess it doesn't really matter. I hope I will get the Batman game for free at least. That will save me $50 so it evens out. Thank you all for your help. It will be tough deciding which answer was the best since you all helped out equally. Next time I post something about the 560 Ti will hopefully be the beast speeds I will be getting and show you guys. :lol: 

Once again many thanks for this. You've made one stressful person a calm, relaxed person that can finally stop being on the computer for five hours finding which graphics card to get.

That EVGA card comes with the highest factory overclock out of all the ones on Newegg. Out of the box, it's nearly as fast as the overclocked card shown in the chart beating the GTX 570. If you can't get it today, look for another sale starting tomorrow.
