Is the GTX 560 Ti worth it over GTX 560?
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?
If I were buying a video card and the choices I had were the 560 and the 560Ti then I would get the 560Ti. It will give you better fps and video performance over the 560.
MSI N560GTX-M2D1GD5 GeForce GTX 560 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
$174.99 and a $15 rebate makes it $159.99
MSI N560GTX-TI Twin Frozr II/OC GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
$219.99 and a $30 rebate makes it $189.99
The difference between these two is $30 so if you shop around you can end up with better deals than a $60 difference. So now a $30 difference is well worth the step up to the 560Ti.

Like said above the prices are dropping all over the place and the 560 ti is the best of the two cards. Here is a link to help and good luck on your choice.
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
