You shouldn't.It's mieger performance upgrade at best.

What are your full system sepcs?(CPU,RAM,etc.)

Since they're both GF 116 chips the likely scenario is that non Ti models are simply chips that couldn't hack the QC testing to become a 560 Ti. So, what you're buying is a better chip that's maybe 10% faster or so at stock settings. 560 Ti's are also known to be highly overclockable though. Acieving 900MHz at stock voltages is easy and 1000MHz on max voltages is usually no problem as well. Specialty models like the MSI GTX 560 Ti Hawk can hit 1100Mhz or close to it which puts it's performance on par or better than a GTX 570.

At any rate, if you plan to overclock and wring every last drop of performance out of the card then definitely go for the GTX 560 Ti, if not then a GTX 560 is probably find for you. Also, keep in mind the first reply. The HD 6870 is indeed a bit better and runs right between the 560 and 560 Ti in price for a decent unit.

Alright so I should keep that $50 and get a 560 :D  Thanks. Also I realize the 6870 is better, I am just a Nvidia person, I don't know why I just don't like ATI.

How did you get that CPU-Z validation image under your posts? Is that a signature thing or something??

The GTX560 is a troll card, definitely go the GTX560 Ti

Of course if you already have a GTX460 OC then I don't really see the point of the minor upgrade. Why not go for an HD 78** series card?

This is a good point. Coming from a GTX 460 OC the GTX 560 won't make any noticable difference. My suggestion to you is to forget the PSU upgrade unless yours is about to die, sell the GTX 460 before even more 600 series stuff comes out and use the extra money to get a GTX 580 (used ones are a steal). Also, avoid PNY is the future. They advertise a "lifetime" warranty, but it's pretty much useless if you read the fine print so what you're left with is a vanilla card with no redeamable benefits. I'd go with EVGA, MSI, Asus, or Gigabyte.

In think the560 has 336 processor cores and the Ti has 384. At least this is the way it was before the special 448 core ones and the 320bit bus.
The 560Ti is a better card

If they still carry it, try to snag a 560ti Classified w/ 448 cores - you actually see a difference because of the additional processing cores. The amount of video ram is really only important if you're planning on using multiple screens or continually displaying multiple graphically intensive applications simultaneously - bear that in mind when you're looking at different cards.

I personally am looking to either upgrade to a 580 or a 680 - I have a friend who just snagged a 680 and I am going to look at how it performs in a PCIE 2.0 slot before I commit. He was using a 570 and I was impressed by the performance difference vs. my 560.

So what would you think If I just got a GTX 650? It's ~560.

I haven't seen specs on the GTX 650, but if it's about the same as a GTX 560 then why? Neither would be enough of a difference from your current card to justify the purchase (unless your dying for DX11 support). Realistically, what you're talking about is going from a GTX 460 to a GTX 470 performance level, which to me at least isn't worth a couple hundred dollars. If you're going to upgrade you need to step up a couple more levels to really make it worth while, or wait longer in my opinion.

What games and resolution are you using? What makes you want to upgrade from your GTX 460?

The 650 is cheaper than the 560 but its a newer/better version, and it consumes less power which is good for me :D . You can see rumored specs here: http://videocardz.com/30528/kepler-gk-110-details-leaks...

Yeah I guess you're right, maybe I should just get another 460 for now then buy a single powerful one later. :/  What do you think guys?

Even the 680 can't max out the bandwidth of a PCI-E 2.0 x16 port so it will work the same in either a 2.0 or 3.0 port.

from a 460 i wouldn't bother upgrading unless you were going for at least a GTX 570 or above (or AMD equivalent)

460's are ok but i recommend going/saving for a 680

A single 680 beats SLI 460's with much less noise, less heat and a lot less power. 460's are showing their age whereas 680's will be enough for years and years to come

Gotchya, buy another 460 for now, then sell both later and get a 680. Cheers!
