PNY GeForce GTX 560 Ti
Advantages: Powerful, cost effective card.
Disadvantages: Not as powerful as the GTX 580 - but at this price what did you expect?
Upgrading your pc can be a bit of a nightmare. So many parts, and the GPU is one of the most expensive and vital parts of the pc to replace or upgrade.
So you need to ask yourself a question, what are you buying the PC for? Gaming? Office work? Family work?
If you answered gaming then read on ...
The GTX 560 Ti is the upgraded, titanium version of the 560. This version of the card is faster, features more cores and comes outfitted with 1 Gig of Vram. The card is price in the midle of the range - more expensive and more powerful than the venerable GTX 460 but below the GTX580 and the current king of graphics the double GPU monster the GTX 590.
So what do you get with the GTX 560 Ti?
1/ You get a very good looking card, that isn't too long compared to some of the other higher specced offerings, or even some of the lower specced ATI Radeons.
2/ You get a lot of horsepower for your buck, this card is probably in the sweet spot for the power/price ratio right now - It'll handle most games on there highest settings with a high resolution. We're talking serious power here 60 FPS on the latest games at 1080p. For a certain Battlefield 3 this game most likely won't run it at 60 fps on ultra, but it'll come close to it on high, and for several hundred pounds under the GTX 580, what more could you want?
Moving on, you're gonna need a decent PSU for this unit - I would recommend a 600W power supply from a good name brand such as Corsair. Why spend this much money when your not gonna give it the juice?
It does come with a mini HDMI port and not full fledged HDMI - so you might have to buy an adaptor to fit it into your standard sized cable. It does come with two DVI ports though - so for most monitors the HDMI problem shouldn't be an issue.
At the end of the day if you're reading this review your probably in the market for a good GPU to power the latest games, this card will do it and more for the next few years at least.
Summary: Fantastic card for the money, for the mid - high range PC look no further.
