Bang for the buck GPU,need advice

Hi guys,I have sale on EVGA 560 for this 3 days now,I can take it for 149$ absolutely new. So I think is it worth this money to take ? another option is to take 570 from Asus for 275$ (used) and also MSI R6970 lightning for 300$ (also used)

rig is
3570k
asus z77 v-le
2x4gb RAM 1600
OCZ 850W

Since I'll be playing on 1920x1080 resolution,I don't know which one to take... My friend brought his 560 and we were playing bf3,max payne 3 on high settings and 1920x1080 resolution with average 55-60FPS with absolutely no lags or something like that.. I just don't know if 570 of 6970 which are 100-125$ more,worth to buy ? thanks in advance.

  1. So what's our real max budget? $300?

    For $10 more you can even get a new 780

    actually it's not only about budget,but everything that goes over 180$,needs to be payed also taxes,which is 18% :( (rules in my country for item transportation from foreignh)so if I buy 200$ card I pay another 36$ for taxes,and for that 310$ card I'll pay more than 350$

    Thing is that is it worth paying twice money for 570 over 560 ?

    cause I'm really satisfied with 560,but I'm kinda looking in future....

    I can buy now 560,play for almost 1 year in all games on high settings and then change to other one... I don't know what to do,any advices ?
  3. GTX 560 won't get you through high settings. If it's a 560 ti then barely. 570 would be a better option and 6970 lightning even better. If you're ready to change after a year AND with a decent budget, and you don't mind turning the settings down a bit, then the gtx 560 will work fine for a year.
  4. How much is the 560 ti? If it's not much then it would be a better option for you.

    If your budget is that tight, a GTX 560 is good, but don't expect high settings, probably modified high settings.

    The 570 at that price is much stronger than the cards you mentioned.

  5. if you do plan on getting the 7870, technically as of the moment, the HIS Iceq is the cheapest due tot he 12% off code

    but in my opinion, if the budget is way to far off, i would dive into an hd 7850 or take that gtx 570

    560ti is about 300$ and 560 is 150$ :)

    570 is 275$ and 6970 is 300$

    Don't know which one to take... Money isn't that problem,just the price is twice high and I don't think I'll get twice performance...

    if the price difference is that big, then i kinda will have to push the gtx 560 then. if you dont mind not playing on ultra settings and play on medium/high on 1920x1080, then in general it should be enough.

    It depends what settings you'll play at.

    The price on the 570 is a great bargain, plus the performance exceeds the 6970. You'll definitely see a performance difference if you take a 570. That's my opinion.
  9. so you guys say that 570-s extra 145$ is worth spending over 560 ? :)
  10. what i would go is the 570 if you plan to play ultra, if not the 560 should cover most things on medium/high

    I don't have problems playing on high instead of ultra,but I'm looking further in future. Yes,560 is quite good gpu to play NOW,but if it will be issue playing games even on high settings in let's say 7-8 months,actually I would like to avoid selling it and buying again another one,BUT if I will have the same issue with 570 then I don't see real reason in buying 570. If I'm wrong please correct me,thanks
  12. I wouldn't know about the games in the next year or so. the only graphically intensive game that will come out by that time will be Crysis 3, and who knows how far they will push that game. Nothing else comes to mind with graphically intensive gaming in the next year.
  13. If you want you could do the GTX 560 now. Then later, prices will come down for the current generation cards such as the Nvidia 6xx series and the AMD 7xxx series, you can upgrade to better cards, in 7-8 eight months.
