They are about the same, so I guess it depends on the details. I'd say the 560 Ti is faster when overclocked, but it does cost more. For a little more you could get the 6950.. hmmm?

Oh god, that frog's back from the last review of a Palit card.

BTW, is it just me, or did Rodney sound like he said something else when he said "shader clock?" lol

Am just about to build a new system, The GPU is the last piece to choose for my i5 2500k system. Am between Nvidia and ATi just cant make up my mind between the 6950 and a 560 gtx Ti. Only used for Cod series so Black ops at the moment. And my monitor is real old and is 1400x900 but that will change soon. What would you recommend please?

Ok thanks Rodney I think I am leaning towards the MSI GeForce GTX 560Ti OC Twin FrozR II 1024MB, Much the same as the Palit? Going for Nvidia purely because of card length and well I have always used them in the past without issues.

Can you SLI 500 and 400 series VGA? Example a 480 + 580? I know they had to redesign the heat issue for the 400 series, but a lot of people anticipated that it would be top of the line and unfortunately it went downhill. I knew they would re-design the card since the 460 came out. So rather than getting a 480 I got the 460 - believing the redesign in the future wouldn't be backwards compatible. (Even though it should have been)

When people lose sight, they pray for better vision. Even though the path of ignorance was their choice, they believe it to be an outer entity like karma or bad luck - in thus believing an outer cause will cure it. You want change? Stop throwing dirt in your eyes to attain mercy for looking weak.

No, SLIing 400 and 500 series video card won't work, slightly different GPU.

I'm glad I didn't buy a GTX 480 than. The 500 series makes the 400 series near obsolete as bad as the GTX 465 itself. These Marketing Strategies are deplorable. I only support companies that support Rodney, so far that's palit.

Is this 560 Ti the same performance as my 6850? Hard to tell looking at the DX11 default score. I'm about 1000 points below Rodney, but there is a difference in DDR2 vs DDR3 and Q6600 vs i7.

The GTX 560 Ti is faster and remember this particular one was overclocked out of the box.

The fans seemed a bit too loud under full load. Do you think the GeForce GTX 560 Ti (non-Sonic) with only one cooling fan would be better suited for people who want a quieter setup?

If you are referring to the one fan model, it should since there's only one fan, although I have reviewed it, so not 100%.

Yes, but get a quality brand name one.

Thanks for reviewing this! I was on the fence about getting this card.
