Is it worth purchasing the MSI GeForce GTX 560 SE OC Twin Frozr II? i found it for 135$ and i don't want to spend 200$ on a GTX 560 and i've heard the 560 SE OC can match the 560. i'm not very happy with nvidia since their mid range cards that are good at gaming are 150$+ i remember in 2009 i got the 9800gt for 75$ which was a high end GPU at that time

It's time for another big-ticket graphics card launch by NVIDIA, presenting the GeForce GTX 560 review. Hang on, don't confuse this with GeForce GTX 560 Ti, which is a different, higher-end part, that was released way back in January. Why exactly did NVIDIA think of giving the GeForce 560 Ti a smaller sibling and this "late"? Among other things, it's because of a host of changes that took place in rival AMD's $150 to $250 lineup after the GeForce GTX 560 Ti, changes that took place over a period of time, warranting NVIDIA to respond with the new GeForce GTX 560.

First, as of January, NVIDIA may have had a healthy inventory of GTX 460 to clear, and that SKU was quite competitive at the time following some price cuts that made it a good deal against the Radeon HD 6850. AMD used a two-pronged market strategy against GTX 560 Ti by introducing a cheaper Radeon HD 6950 1 GB graphics card that ended up with high cost-performance ratio; and by slashing prices of HD 6870 and stepping up pressure on lower-end NVIDIA SKUs. Later, AMD introduced HD 6790, a sub-$200 SKU that ended up with higher performance than GTX 550 Ti.

The GTX 560 first surfaced some time last month, though it was always speculated that NVIDIA will milk the GF114 beyond just one SKU (GTX 560 Ti). Hence, the GeForce GTX 560 was born. While the name is bound to create some confusion, NVIDIA only stands to benefit from it. GTX 560 Ti earned the reputation of striking the gamer's sweet-spot, and so the GeForce GTX 560 will be perceived as a good SKU by the lesser-informed buyers.For review today we have the MSI GeForce GTX 560 Twin Frozr II OC which comes with MSI's well proven Twin Frozr II thermal solution and increased clock speeds out of the box.
You should go on with your choice.. Cheers

For $10 more.... GTX 480...

You do realize.... that the 600 series cards coming 1 vs 1... the newer card priced same as 480 will be better....

660 ti is going to have about the same specs as a 580
