Is it worth getting this, EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Superclocked 1024 MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 2DVI/Mini-HDMI SLI Ready Graphics Card or the Ti? pls help!

Both the Ti and non-Ti version are good cards. For a couple dollars extra, maybe $20-30, the Ti is probably a better investment, and for a couple bucks more than that one of the dual fan non-reference design models is an even better buy as it will run cooler and quieter. I would suggest something like this if you can swing it...

I would probably go with the EVGA one myself as I've had good experiences with them in regards to customer service and warranty support.

well I don't know if I can go there because I bought it already and it's on way. BUT to do SLI, can I use this Graphics Card you said? or I have to use the same one I have?

note: I will be doing SLI things later on when I get the hang of it / also overclocking

Best solution

It won't do much good to buy one really expensive card and one cheap card in SLI since one won't keep up with the other, so you'd be better off with just a matching card to what you've already purchased.

If you've already purchased the EVGA card then go with it, it's a good card, it's just not the amongst the best ones.

If your planning on doing SLI you shouldn't use that PSU.Get a quality brand.

No worries, your PSU is rated fine for SLI with two GTX 560's. People around here are just a bit upitty about their PSU vendors and think that only three companies are capable of making one that works. If yours dies (not likely) then go with their recomendation. If not, no worries.

EDIT: I can eat my own words. It only has 2 x 6-pin PCIe connectors, which means you'd have to run the second card off of molex power connectors which isn't the end of the world, but it's not ideal.

If the PSU dies it's very possible that it can take other componets with it when it does.

Here's the review of the 575 watt model from the UL series.

I'm not saying don't use it because it's not a popular vendor.I'm saying don't use it because Diablotek isn't known for making high quality stuff.You get what you pay for...

I'll agree that the review doesn't paint a pretty picture, but that's what VRM's and multi-phase power are for. As for it dying and taking out other components...ever had that happen to you, or is it just something you've read can happen? I've had 3-4 no namers go on me without any collateral damage and most friends I've had with dead PSU's have the same story.
