Which GTX 560?

I am building a new gaming computer, and my budget for the video card is 180$, I found 2 cards which I like, but they were very similar, and I was wondering which one is better for the money of them.

Card 1 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130660

Card 2 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130664

If you want to suggest a different card, 180$ is my limit, I can't go over it.

  1. You can see the differences in it's clocks


    Core Clock:

    Shader Clock:

    Effective Memory Clock:

    That would be the first one.


    Core Clock:

    Shader Clock:

    Effective Memory Clock:

    This is the second one.

    Basically the second one would run faster - a.k.a better performance - than the non-super clocked version
  2. Thanks, I was just wondering about the cooling performance or if there was something I'm missing because of it being cheaper, thanks

    get at lease a 560 ti, preferably a 448 core, I've seen some of the 448's go for as little as $205. ti is about 15% faster and the 448 is another 15% faster and on par with 570's and hits stock 580's when over clocked.
  4. heres the same thing on the egg but it also comes with battlefield 3 for the same $175 after promo code and rebate, thats a great deal right there son.


    $180 for a regular gtx560 is extremely over priced.
  5. Thanks, I was able to find some discounts on my other parts so I can get that one instead
  6. Why not get the GTX 560 TI for 199.99 from Tigerdirect?
    or the exact same model for 204.99 with lifetime warranty: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=7191450&CatId=3669

    The 560 TI is a tier above the 560: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-card-review,3107-7.html

    ah nevermind, that BF3 package is probably best for you if you like the game ;) though I like EVGA better ;)
  7. I do like the EVGA one, especially the warranty, does it cover overclocking?, not anything extreme though; I can get BF3 with some rebates, if they actually work that is
  8. I dont know about overclocking the GPU - I haven't done it but in addition to the EVGA warranty it also has the step-up program which gives you 90 days to upgrade to a newer card: http://www.evga.com/support/stepup/
