More about 560ti family
  1. ASUS GTX 560 Ti DirectCU II TOP overclocked graphics card with 2GB memory is without a doubt the best of those
  2. you should get the hawk or a twinfrozr 2 because msi service in india is best and tf2 cools the gpu quite nicely
  3. Look at the non-reference 560 Ti designs, factory OC'd to 900 Mhz. Among them you will find several models that have upgrade dPCB's and beefed up VRMs. The ones w/ 7 phases or more and the special coolers have been known to top 30% overclocks over the reference card speed.ASUS GTX 560 Ti DirectCU II TOP is one of them.

    .And make no mistake about these cards straight beast!
  4. I agree with bigcyco1 about the ASUS card. Have been running the 1GB version for a while (sli now) and its been a great card only let down by the 1GB of vram onboard.

    The 2GB model should alleviate the only downside of my card.
  5. Quote:
    The 2GB 560ti is only useful when overclocked to it's limits (core runs out of puff before utilising the memory)..
    I would suggest a 7850/ GTX 480 at that price range..

    But this all depends on what is available at your end, and the prices..

  6. 480 would violently murder a 560 TI though lol

    PLEASE SUGGEST ONE

    kindly please clarify my following queries

    1. is ASUS 2gb oc top gtx 560ti better overall by a huge number as compared to the msi twin froz II 2gb OC

    2. is hawk 1gb gtx560ti by msi a real good solution keeping in mind its 1gb and how can this affect my pc in future

    3. can I sli a gtx 670 in future wit a gtx560ti or it has to be of the same type ?
  8. 1.The ASUS 2gb oc top gtx 560ti is better not by allot 2.It would already affect your game play because allot of games need more than 1GB 3.No you cannot SLI a 560ti and a gtx670
  9. KEEPING IN MIND I HAVE A maximus V GENE board from ASUS ( Micro ATX)

    will the asus gtx560 DCII TOP 2gb prevent me to sli in future due to its size ????
  10. if incase I opt to checkout the 7850 by ATI

    What manufacturer and model should I go for
    (Provide exact link)

    (keeping in mind de budget)
  11. if that monitor is running 1080P resoltion then the 1GB model will be fine.
    any larger then more VRAM is definitely needed.

    get the fastest best performing card as per price regardless if 1 or 2GB of VRAM..
    (1080p or lower)
  12. I rather have a GTX 570...
  13. HD 7870 if have the money, I'm good with that.

  15. Not trying to be rude, but like, you aren't being very clear, do you want to buy the 7850 or 560 ti or 670?
    You have asked about all of these, please specify,
    I can however concur the 560 ti gb isn't worth it, it is a good card, just not after 1920x1080, it runs out of steam
  16. * 560 ti 2gb, it is good for 1080p, but the 1gb is better for price since the card cannot really use the extra memory without loosing frames
  17. The Asus TOP is a great card....,I have installed probably about 2 dozen of them and all but one hit 1000Mhz.....for overlcocking and longevity, it's all about the VRM....the
    TOP has a 7 phase design, the Gigabyte has 7 also, the EVGA has just 4.

    The Twin Frozr, has less....IIRC it has 6 phases......the Hawk and Lightning have 8 and 10 phases though I don't recall which was which.

    In SLI, two of the Asus TOP hit 862 fps....the 570 hits just 11 frames faster at 873 in Guru3D's game test suite. In the same suite, the 560 Ti (900Myz) and 7850 are within 203 frames of each other and both have the same % overclocking headroom. For an extra $50, the 7850's cost in dollars per frame is just too high.....in your neck of the woods, with different pricing structures, your mileage may vary. The 660 Ti is reportedly days away from release.....expected 2nd week in August if rumors are true.

    Batman Arkham City in 3D on a 120Hz 1920 x 1080 screen with twin Asus TOP 560 Ti's in SLI was a eye opening experience to say the least.

    And no, you can't SLI the 560 and 660 but you could use the 560 for PhysX tho it's way more card than is needed.

    Hey sorry for deviating from the subject

    but initially I was planning to get the 560ti but as you see I reside in India
    here a few dollars is not the exact diff in cost

    so for the price of a 560ti top by asus in the market , there is also a 7850 to grab

    PLUS in the international market a 7850 and a 7870 wont differ in cost by a great margin, but here the cost is differing by almost Rs 6000 ( approx 110$)


    so that restricts me to buy a 7870 (due to budget)

    now I am left with a gtx 560ti and a 7850

    majority state the 7850 faster than the 560ti,

    (I HAVE NEVER USED AMD GPU's over NVIDIA but when it comes to performance/price ratio analysis I dont mind getting a 7850 also, if it really has more to offer )

    I like checking out your post and have for years...
    I hold you in high regard like I do 'matto17secs' and 'nforce4max'.
    I will say this, never will I get into a number crunching battle with you mate....
    you make my head spin sometimes... :lol:
    it's like you have a 'calc' hidden and plugged into your cerebellum..
    not necessarily this post but some others when you break down price per performance.
    nice..
