Without taking much time i put forward mah QUESTIONS

Q1) Should i wait for nvidia kepler midrange gpu's or buy gtx 560ti now?

Q2)If i wait for kepler then how much time it will take to reach indian markets

Q3) if i purchase 560 ti and later on if i replace it with any kepler gpu then will their be any conflict regarding replacement or it should be as simple as putting 560ti out and putting kepler gpu in ?

ADDITIONAL : REMIND you that i currently have ancient intel g33 chipsets
SO now u might get an idea that how desperate i am

GAMING RIG : Intel i3570k
any z77 mobo
rest i have already decided

THANKS

1) The new GTX 660/660 Ti should be a nice step up from the GTX 560 Ti going by how good the GTX 680/670 are.

2) As far as I know the GTX 660/Ti are going to be released in August. At least thats the best guess. I have no idea how long it would take to reach India.

3) No. As long as your power supply is sufficient.

I am waiting on the 660/660 Ti to upgrade my GTX 460 1GB.

Q1) Which resolution is best for gaming ?

Any chance you could explain why the GTX560Ti will not have enough potential to play present generation games?

I personally use GTX 560 Ti to play games at 1920x1080. I own a 600 watt Corsair CX 600 power supply.

This one is a decent motherboard for overclocking:

I play almost all games on maximum settings, there were only a few games around that I had to reduce graphics settings (namely: Battlefield 3, had to turn AA off, Crysis 2 with DX11 patch and high resolution textures, had to turn post processing 1 step down from ultra to extreme, and Witcher 2, had to turn ubersampling off).

1) the "best" resolution for gaming is always your monitor's native resolution - things will look crispest this way.
Want a larger view? (see the SAME STUFF, but now you can put the monitor farther from your face, easing the starin on your eyes) simply get a larger screen.
Want a larger FIELD OF VIEW? (see MORE of whatever world you are looking at - as in you can now see stuff on screen that you would otherwise would have had to turn your head in-game to see) for this you need a higher resolution monitor - and naturally more powerfull graphix to drive that resloution.

2) 750 will be enough for any 1 video card setup, or a CONSERVATIVE 2 card setup... provided you arent running an insane number of disk drives - like more then 5

3) Honestly any should do for lite OC... look at the mobo reveiws on Tom's reviews, they benchmark them all. I guess from there pick the best performer that fits inside your budget.

but i have seen guys recommending that 1680*1080(native) is best for gaming but some also say 1920*1080(native) . SO which one should i choose ?

The only thing to be confused with is the amount of choice you have with the 560Ti's, my two seem to be able to handle every current gen game played on them so far and I don't recall any review in the last year or so pointing out any games that can't be played on a GTX560Ti.

1920x1080 is better I think.

First of all, it's bigger, means better quality video.

Secondly, the cards that you're looking to buy are all perfectly capable of running that resolution.

Thirdly, 1920x1080 screens are pretty cheap nowadays - not much expensive than 1680x1050.

Lastly, if you're watching movies, most of them come at resolution of 1920x1080.

but their are certain games whose recommended system requirements are not met by 560ti like bfbd3
SO if u are buying a new gpu without any chance of any future upgrade then u might have to think again ? :hello:

I'm pretty sure you will find that there are people with GTX560Ti's who are playing BF3 quite happily.

Not only does it meet the recommended requirements it exceeds them.

http://www.enterbf3.com/information/538-minimum-require...

Recommended is the GTX 560 the GTX 560 Ti is a different, better card than the GTX 560.


The 560 Ti is a very good card that will play any games you want at 1920 x 1080. In answer to your original question the GTX 660/660 Ti will be better. There is no way to say how much better but better. The speculation is that they will be as good as or a little better than the GTX 570 is now. That is only a guess though.

My GTX 560 Ti is able to play it on high settings. Everything set to ultra except anti aliasing turned down. It looks amazing and runs at 50-60 fps with 40s dips in multiplayer 64 player maps. I don't see the problem.

If you buy an EVGA card they have a 90 day step up program where in 90 days if you want a more powerful card they will credit you full retail price to a new card in that time.

The GTX 660 / 660 Ti should be out by then and you can decide if the 560 Ti is good enough or if you want to do an upgrade.

Not to mention EVGA has a legendary warranty and customer support and they are among the best Nvidia card makers.
June 4, 2012 8:00:04 AM

FYI I have the EVGA 560ti OCed to 1000/2000/2300Mhz @1100mV

BF3 ultra settings ~50fps with max temp 72 C

If you need one now, the 560ti is a very good card IMO.

Now am felling confident with the gpu am purchasing
Will see how it performs and if necessary I WILL upgrade to kepler gpu
I think that would be best for me........coz when these cards will release they will have high price tag and in couple of months d price will reduce..........so thats Y...............
