Could anyone possibly recommend a GPU upgrade from a EVGA gtx 560ti?

I was thinking possibly grabbing another 560ti and going SLI but i'm not sure if that would be better than getting a new card completely.

Budget would be within £300 give or take.

Thanks for your help in advance.

System specs

mobo: as rock extreme 4
cpu: intel i5 3570k
gpu: evga gtx 560ti
ram: 16gb crucial ballistix sport

I was put in a similar situation but with a GTX 570. So instead of increasing the heat and power consumption with a SLI setup, I upgraded to a single Gigabyte GTX 670 WIndforce OC X3. I love this card because its quiet, OCed, reliable, and benchmarked faster than the Galaxy 680 model stock. For $299 this might look small but it has a very cool design over a custom PCB. I recommend the newer generation card because if you do 560SLI then you might have to buy a 800W PSU. I use a OCZ Modular 600w for my 2600k, and GTX 670 Windforce X3.

You are right but, that has a reference PCB and airflow design which means LOUD!! under load.


You are right... This card is the one you should get without a doubt. You will be very hard pressed to find a better card for that price.

Hmmm. Not too shaby, I would say not too much bettter due to fan design. I read about once the fan kick in they can get pretty loud but not as loud as the other one. For his/her price range I'd recommend this too but it all comes down to whoever posted this topic. That said maybe he/she doesn't care about the heat or sound level lets see what one he/she picks that best suits them. :)  :bounce:
