I'll need to look into that.
It's a bit difficult to know the difference, since you can't compare the different benchmarks as they're using a different test set-up.
But judging by the two, the GB GTX560 Ti SOC is a bit better. But only by just. :)

You can get the GTX 560 Ti 448 cores.
The other one is superclocked. While the one I linked is a stock. You can overclock later on, if you feel like it. :)

true true but take in to count price difference the SOC 560ti performs like a stock 570 which i assume is enough to run games now at full hd ...basically is the 448 worth the extra cash ? and do you no the price dif between the 2?

Thanks for asking me that.
But by the way you're saying, the SOC seems cheaper than the 448.
But the GTX560Ti 448 does perform similarly to a stock 570 and OC'ing should result in it being better than the GTX 560 Ti SOC and the 570.

I meant whether you are buying from a local hardware store or from newegg or amazon or any other sites like that.

Yes, you should get the 448 one. :)

good point maybe i should just settle for the reg. 560ti OC and hopefully it will run like a stock 570 that way il safe cash because the 570's ar double the price of the 560ti

gtx 570 is to close in price to the 448 version lol only an idiot bought a 448

I wouldn't say the GTX 570 is close to a GTX 560 Ti 448 in price.
$40-45 more doesn't seem worth it.

Yes
IMO, the 570 doesn't seem to be worth the extra cash.

$20- $30 is more like it even less GTX 570s for $300 are getting common place.

But the considering that the performance/price ratio is low, I wouldn't consider an extra $20-30 or $40 for a 570.
The performance difference is negligible.

I guess it's just a different manufacturer.
Yes, I did notice that.
But this one is already OCd. The GTX 560 Ti 448 isn't and it can be OC'd later on, if the OP wishes to do so. The 570 is good, but I don't consider the extra money as being worth it.

but you are contradicting yourself cause of the price difference it even larger between the Galaxy 560ti White Edition and GTX 448 than it is between the 448 and 570

You're forgetting it's already OC'd.

Your forgetting that means it's stable and comes with a warranty and that it's $230 not $300+

A 448 is not over $300+.

Actually the fastest GTX 560 ti was the Gigabyte SOC it is faster than gtx 480 and close to a GTX 580



Reminds me of a guy on Craigslist that irrationally believed that a GTX 550ti beat a GTX 560ti and despite proof otherwise, he kept on BELIEVING...
