My System Specs

Default GTX 470 vs GTX 560Ti

I've read so much but heard so many different things I know the main part as far as the review I've read

560Ti

Pros : Less wattage, Less heat, DX11

Cons : Not as much ram, Doesn't OC as well?

Am I way off here or whats the big difference I would think newer tech just would be better overall to have but curious if I should keep my 470 or trade it for a 560ti (yes I found someone).

Thanks!

Most review don't use the same specs, etc and had different drivers so curious if anyone has real stats to provide etc... Thanks again!

560TI all the way.
Less RAM, but faster RAM. And (unlike the 470) it OC's like hell!!! :)

The 470 is a DX11 card as well, I had one. But if someone will trade you straight across or for a small cash difference, I'd do it.

a 560 is like an oc'ed 460. so a highly clocked 560 will close in to 570/480 territory vram permitting

Where did you hear the 560 Ti doesn't overclock as well? I was able to get my MSI cards to 1GHz core and 2250 Mhz on memory, allowing to be out perform the 570 where vRam wasn't a concern

Do it. Faster out of the box, plus all the benefits you listed (though both are DX11 as far as I know), and usually OC great. If its direct swap or plus small amount of cash then do it.

Thanks guys was able to grab 2 of these

Newegg.ca - Galaxy 56NGH6HS4IXZ GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

for my 2 of these

The cards are good (and very sexy) ;)
And again, the 560Ti is a much better OC'er than the 470.

If I could find a guy to trade my GTX 470 for his GTX 560Ti I would.
you will see a better performance with them in SLi then the two GTX 470 in SLi

IMO you got the better end of the deal.
