like battlefield 3? try a 560TI.

Youll need a better PSU for that, like a 650W

April 20, 2012 9:30:31 AM

for ur 350w watts psu only amd 7750 can be used and above that nothing is possible..if u want higher performance go for atleast a 450w psu from xfx its cheap and offers very good quality too.

Yes, that is a good one. I might have to get one myself, the LED's are pretty cool.

Is zotac 560ti good graphics card.
I checked online psu calculator it shows just 300w requires
so is it fine to have cm350 for 560ti zotac?
Which one is good zotac vs asus vs msi vs evga?

Ignore the BS PSU calculators. A 350watt PSU will not produce enough amperage to properly power a system with a GTX560Ti and will result in hardware failure. You need at least a high quality 550watt PSU but a 600watt or higher would be strongly recommended.

This is from eVGA regarding the GTX560Ti power requirements...
Quote:

Requirements
Minimum of a 550 Watt power supply.
(Minimum recommended power supply with +12 Volt current rating of 30 Amps.)
Two available 6-pin PCI-E power dongles

I don't think it really mattters which manufacture you choose from. Every manufacture will use the same 560ti GPU in thier graphics cards, but they might have different features to their graphics cards, different warranties, drivers, etc. So see what each Manufacture offers and see what fits you.

I would go with either the msi or asus one! They have a custom PCB with better components and feature much better cooling. If possible, pick up an msi 560ti HAWK edition card. With it's 950mhz clock, it performs on par with the stock gtx570! And offers great cooling for much better overclocking. Keep in mind it is very hard to watercool these (no full cover block) If you consider watercooling, the EVGA one will be the better choice as it uses the reference PCB!
April 23, 2012 4:03:14 PM

Get EVGA or MSI, I have used EVGA cards a lot, but I have also heard good things about MSI. If you go AMD, XFX is a good brand, MSI again. ASUS is also good, and they make both Nvidia and AMD cards. Don't get a 560ti get a 560ti-448 core or a 570 for the price difference.

DO you plan on using sli? If you don't than grab the 448 core version.

No it's not.
The 6XX series can support more than 2 monitors in single card for example. It sure is worth the wait for nVidia card that can do as AMD Eyefinity in single card. It may be for very few people but it definitely is an advantage. Among others, the 6XX will have the following features that 4XX or even 5XX have:
NVIDIA Adaptive Vertical Sync
NVIDIA GPU Boost
Two New Anti-aliasing Modes: FXAA and TXAA
These may just be fancy features used by nVidia for marketing gimmicks. But if you stick to the 2generations/2year old technology... you will never know what they really are.
New Tech may be more expensive for the same performance. But what the heck... being on the cutting edge have its cost.

FXAA-TXAA works on 400-600 series gpu's.
The op is not doing eyefinity.

For now... but when he learn about the awesomeness of triple monitor gaming... he will be equipped. That is future proofing.
Also when the time comes that he feel his single GPU is not enough, he can SLI or CFX. Something no one would want to do on a 480.

One does not have to own to have an informed opinion. This is what the forum is all about. To learn from the experience of others who are willing to share them.

To the OP: To avoid further confusion, just look at Tom's recommendation:

Sure. :)  I'm just trying to say that its cool to post in your PC configuration a 480 if its year 2010. But in year 2012? :non: 
Anyway its your choice. I myself will not buy scraps from bargain bins. Performance or not.

By the same logic no one should be buying a 68XX card because it's also almost 2 years old (1.5 technically). Fact of the matter is top of the line latest and greatest dosen't always make the most sense. I generally buy a generation or two behind (this was an exception for me) as a cost saving and bug countermeasure. The amount of issues I've had reminded me of why I bought a 9800GT 2 1/2 years after it's debut (as the 8800GT).

480 is pretty dang awesome, especially because you can overclock it so easily. However, aftermarket cooling is recommended for higher oc :)

Ok what are the thing's you don't like in 480 and why?
and which gpu you like to choose (using my specification)

And as i checked out for price and specification 480 is good but then also i want your view :)

Currently the 480 is good because nVidia/newegg/stores drops the price to clear out its stock of these old GPUs. This is understandable action & the only way to attract buyers.

But as I mentioned, this card in spite of its very low price point given its performance is not in Tom's recommendation under Best Graphics Card for the money. As Recon-uk said, it could be a rip-off buying these newer cards given the cheap 480 option. It might as well be true but there is trade off in terms of power consumption in favor of the newer card in the long run. Even if you can afford to pay your electricity bill using 480, choosing lower power cards will definitely help save the earth & keep your electricity bill low on the side (eventually paying for the difference).

Like I said, buying the 480 in 2010 for being the most powerful single GPU car is cool for lack of better alternatives. But today, there are better choices albeit a little more expensive (for the same performance). Again, this is reasonable, there is a price to pay for being on the cutting edge of technology. We have to give nVidia & AMD its dues for continually developing & providing us better ( and more earth friendly ) means to satisfy our gaming needs.

Edit to add Link to Power Consumption that shows 480 power consumption compared to newer cards: http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/AMD/HD_7850_HD_7870/...
