Is my choice is good?(GTX 560 ti)
Nov 23, 2012, 7:53 AM
Hi, everyone. I'm thinking of upgrading my computer for better gaming.
After doing some search and I've come to this one:
Also, I'm not into gaming heavily and I gotta watch for my budget here. So this is what I had in my mind for now. Do you think this is good choice? Or do you have any other suggestions?
Thank you in advance!

Get GTX 600 series cards. 500 series is way too much slow, power consuming, costly etc...
What is you budget?
I'd say go for GTX 660. It is a very good card for the price and performance.

GTX 660 was one of my search as well. But I was reluctant to consider it due to around $300 budget(at least, from what I've seen so far).
But if the difference is that much, I might as well reconsider it.

GTX 660 is a little more costly than 560 Ti. But you should go for it, because it is the latest hence supports latest technologies.
Its not much of 300$. Tell me your other specs.

Your chosen Evga GTX 560 Ti is even costly than my MSI NVIDIA N660 TF 2GD5/OC 2 GB GDDR5 . So I say go for my card. My card is far more better than that 560 Ti.

Whats your PSU?

Apology for long reply. I was occupied. Sorry!
My PSU is 450w IIRC. I wish I could give clear answer, but I couldn't find screwdriver.

Go for my card.

Don't get confuse that GTX500 series is so costly, hence it will give good performance. Actually those were built with costly parts and something like that, so they won't be selling for a loss.

So this would be good? Is this enough to play games like Saints row 3, Dishonored, Borderlands 2, etc on high settings?

Of-course it will easily handle it.
