Hello

Should return my GTX 560 and by a used Asus GTX 570? The 570 only has the cd and no box.

I paid about 85 dollars for the 560 and can the used 570 for about

130 dollars.

Which should I get/keep?

What other components are you using? Regardless though, you're talking about a very small upgrade that's 2 generations old at this point. The upgrade doesn't make too much sense to me.

It will be for a Q6600 OC'd to 2.9 GHZ
And I will soon build a Ivory Bridge system.

I thought the 570 is still a good card?

That's not what I meant at all.... The 570 is a great card, but why are you upgrading from a 560 to a 570? It doesn't make sense as an investment. The amount of additional performance you'll see isn't worth the $130 for a used card. I'd put that money away and save for when a 560 doesn't run games well anymore, that 560 should last you a while.
