I know what to expect for a TI performance, but let us know the temps you get from it.

PNY is the only other brand to have a lifetime guarantee other than EVGA, right?

I was curious what the opinion is on them.

At the moment, it appears they have a 560 Ti card for $190 (Aft. rebate) which looks like a good deal for that card.

My budget was $100 and I was looking at a used GTX 460 1gb for $100 incl. shipping. But, no warranty and it's used plus the previous generation. But, 560 are just revised, overclocked 460 cards?

The 560 Ti is another animal, though, and although the power is higher, it's a better performer.

So, for twice the money.... ??????

Any comments?

EVGA. Zotac and PNY for lifetime on most of the higher end cards.

PNY is very good too, their CSR people are top notch like EVGA. Just not talked about nor marketed as much as the others. And to be honest, they do just fine without all the marketing fluff.
They have nice storage stuff too.

UPDATE:

I have had the card plugged in for about 3hrs now, a quick 1080p benchmark in Shogun2 got me 39FPS, with temperatures steady at 54degrees.

I have some other games that I am going to try, or if there is anything you want me throw at it let me know!

I would have bought this:

Newegg.ca - PNY VCGGTX560TXPB GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

You bought the EVGA -KR card with no lifetime warranty? Probably 3 yrs?

Not sure why PNY doesn't get chosen more often... lifetime warranty and same (reference) as EVGA in most cases.

I like EVGA but they seem to really overprice their cards if you want a warranty.... the factory overclocks are high but if it doesn't have warranty, isn't there a bit of a risk with that?

Anyway, $225 for a 560 Ti... pretty good at current prices... wish it'd get below $200, though.... I would maybe find another extra $$ if new but with taxes, a bit much for me while I'm saving up for a 1155 system. :)

Maybe if any sales come by soon?

I would imagine that as the 600 series comes out shortly that the 500 prices will drop slowly, the 400's maybe in SLI should be pretty reasonable?
