Im planning to upgrade my 9800gt to gtx 560 (to play bf3 and new upcoming games like gta5) and there are few models im confused between choosing from, but mainly im looking mainly a for Quiet card especially at load and good quality ( no craping after few months)
1) MSI GeForce GTX 560 Ti Twin Frozr II OC 880MHZ 1GB GDDR5 ($225)
2) MSI GeForce GTX 560 Ti Hawk OC 950MHZ 1GB GDDR5 ($250)
3) EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Fermi 810MHZ 1024MB GDDR5 ($188)
4) EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Fermi 850MHZ 2048MB Superclocked ($239)
Please tell me which card to go with
Note: My mobo supports sli, so in the future i might also buy a second one for sli; if that might help you guys decide which card to go with
Thanks in advance :)
You should definitely go for the MSI GTX 560 Ti Hawk OC. I think those cards would do fine in BF3... But to be safe... go for the GTX 560 Ti. Preferably the HAWK because it is Factory OC'ed..
Thx for reply, but i heard that the hawk oc ones is really loud... i dunno what do you guys think
Go with either MSI card. The Hawk OC is loud but will offer better overall performance and increased overclocking capabilities while the TF II is quieter but a tiny bit slower. I have heard some negatives against the TF II however; lots of DOA's and fan related issues. If I had that choice to make, I would choose the Hawk OC version.
Keep in mind, a GTX 560 and a GTX 560 TI are different cards. The TI version is about 15% more powerful because it has more shader cores unlocked (It's about like the GTX 260 Vs the GTX 260 core 216).
Lately, MSI has had problems with their twin frzr cards, artifacting, overheating and going out within the first few months.
You might as well go with EVGA, they have the best support out of any of the Nvidia manufacturers with some of the most reliable cards.
This is a really good card as well, I hear its relatively quiet for a dual fan as well:
If you want to go with a 2GB card, I suggest looking toward AMD's 6950.
If you are looking for a GTX 560 then I would consider waiting a tiny bit longer as a newer Ti version is going to be released soon based on the GTX 570 board. Early rumors indicate a 1.25 - 2GB frame buffer and it should fall in-between the GTX 560 Ti and the GTX 570. Personally, I think it will phase out the GTX 570 and will compete very well with the HD 6950.
