Compared to the GeForce GTX 560 Ti we used last quarter, today's GeForce GTX 560 has one of the GF114 GPU's eight Streaming Multiprocessors (SMs) disabled, resulting in a loss of 48 CUDA cores and eight texture units.
This model from MSI maintains Nvidia's reference GPU clock rate of 810 MHz and 1002 MHz (4008 MT/s) memory frequency. Moreover, it offers dual DVI outputs and a mini-HDMI connector.
MSI's bundle includes printed quick-start and installation guides, a software DVD, a DVI-to-HDMI adapter, a DVI-to-VGA adapter, and a pair of Molex power adapters, one of which our build requires. There's a $40 mail-in-rebate on the card right now, which makes it a stellar buy.
Offering us the most storage capacity for $65, Western Digital’s 500 GB WD5000AAKX impresses with a 7200 RPM spindle speed, a SATA 6Gb/s interface, and 16 MB of cache.
