The EVGA GeForce GTX 560 super clocked graphics card. Let me start off with the technical side of things.
* 336 CUDA cores.
* 850 MHz GPU.
* 1700MHz shader clock.
* 1GB GDDR5.
* PCI-E 2.0 16x.
* 2x DV-I ports and mini HDMI.
* SLI capable.
Ok if you're looking for a fantastic graphics card then this would be a good choice; it has all the makings of a hard-core gamer's best friend. As always with GeForce products it comes well packaged wrapped and secure in the box for less chance of damaging, in the box you also receive all the wiring and software that you need for this device and even get a mini HDMI to HDMI connection. Why they couldn't just put a full a HDMI port on here I don't know but hey this can't be changed now.
This is a fantastic card but by no means the best on the market and for the price I think this would only be bought by people without a budget and therefore splash out the extra 50 quid for the Ti version. What I really like about this card though is that it is SLI capable meaning you can have more than two linked up together in the same computer, this isn't needed and it will need one hell of a power supply to run the two graphics cards together.
I used this card for a short while and what I found was that it does indeed runs the latest games so smoothly I can run battlefield 3, modern warfare 3 and star wars the old republic on max settings at a smooth 60 fps. Whilst testing the games using this card the fps was at a solid 60 accept when I played battlefield in which I found a slight dip when I was among the chaos but this was far from noticeable.
Installing the card was as easy as could be, it was a simple plug and play. You can install the disk which is highly recommended as Nvidia gives you some nice software to go with the card.
To conclude this review guys I want to say that although this is a great card and can save you a small amount of money on the Ti version of the card, it is still too close to £200 for my liking and I would much rather buy a slightly better card which would last a bit longer. On the basis of this card alone I really cannot fault it apart from price so you have to ask yourself, do I want to pay £200.
