GTX560 worth it?

Recommended Posts

Overclock that 920 and try and spring for the 560ti.

Well, it's all ready OC'd by some, I can't seem to get it higher with the mobo, ram and fan combination that I have.

 

Of course I forgot to mention I use FSX primarily.

The 560 is definitely faster than a 260, no question. $139 is a good price too. Everyone looking at a 560 series card wants a Ti or even Ti 448, but the plain old 560 is still good.

I think it really comes down to how often you want to upgrade your video card... I've got a GTX460

and it does the job nicely - but a 660Ti would no doubt be faster..

 

Here some of the key specs (for FSX) 260-460-560-660Ti

 

Bandwidth GB/sec 112 - 115 - 128 - 144

 

Texture Fill Rate 37 - 38 - 48 - 102

Yes, a 660Ti would be faster. And $160 more expensive, more than twice the cost. If the OP were looking for $300 video cards he probably would've asked about one.

Always a voice of reason! The OP brings up such a subjective question, one can't answer it without covering all of the exhaustive financial, bang-for-buck questions.

 

At $139, YES. Grab it!

I went from a GTX 285 to a 560 Ti last year with my i7-920@4Ghz and didn't regret it at all. Saw a good improvement in FSX and other games like Empire Total War and so on.

Subjectively, I would rather keep the $139, and upgrade to the 660Ti in a year's

time when the price has dropped a bit.. but not my decision, obviously.. :huh:

I have the plain 560 and have been pretty happy with it overall.
