    Are you SURE you want the 560ti 448? This will actually do BETTER than the 448, and is almost on par with the 570.

    I got it to 1294.90$. Before shipping. But also before rebates.
  2. What would be better two of the 560 Ti 448 Core Classified Ultra's or one GTX 680?
  3. I would say one 680, though 2x 448's will beat it, the 680 owns them in power consumption and memory, it's also newer.
  4. Hmm.... Do you know how much 560 Ti's were when they came out on release date?
  5. I think they were actually 230$, the going price on them right now.
  6. Will a 750w actually be good with two of the 560's i listed??
  7. The 448's may need 850W, I'm not sure. The 7850's will be okay.. Like I said, they will beat the 448..
  8. A 7850 will beat a 560 Ti 448, and it has 1/2 the power consumption. No contest. Get the 7850 unless you really need CUDA.
  9. I guess I'll just wait for GTX 660 Ti's :/
  10. Why go SLI when you can just get a 680..?
  11. Ehh... I don't know I think SLI looks to cool.
  12. Or I will wait for a 670 I dunno
  13. Too bad in SLI configuration, unless you have a humungo case, the cards will likely get super hot. You get stuttering and scaling issues also.
  14. Ivy Bride is due out April 29th and hopefully Nvidia puts out the gtx 670ti and/or gtx 660ti by then.
