I am looking at these graphic cards for my new build and i really don't know if the Ti is worth the extra $60. I read that the GTX 560 will run BF3 fine just not maxed out (1920 x 1080). So will the Ti make a MAJOR difference and is it worth it?
Also, take note that the factory OC'd cards are NOT the same as the reference cards and well worth the extra $5 or so. Contrary to popular belief they are not physically the same and ya simply can NOT "get the same thing by buying a reference card and using Afterburner".
1. The factory OC'd cards, almost all of them , have large more efficient coolers which in and of itself allows bigger OC's.
2. Most of the factory OC'd cards have beefed up PCB's with more robust VRM designs. The reference card had 4 phase VRM's. SOme manufacturers go to 5, MSI goes to 6 with the Frozr line and Asus and Gigabyte go to 7 phase designs with their 900 MHz versions.
These 900Mhz versions w/7 or more phases can hit 30+ OC's (1070 MHz) over reference (820 MHz) speeds
