Default Galaxy GTX 560 Ti Super OC White Edition Review Comment Thread

"Black editions" are all the rage these days but Galaxy is bucking that trend with their unique White Edition. Not only does this GTX 560 Ti boast a unique white PCB and chromed heatsink shroud combination but it also sports some of the highest clock speeds we've seen on the GF114 core.

Galaxy support, I know we have a rep on here but I would hope that both their Customer Support and Retail availability is up better than what I remember.

Sort of surprised they didn't bother making this one a 2GB version for the fact Kepler is around the corner (hopefully?)

Unless you really like chrome, I couldn't recommend this over MSI's 560 Ti Hawk, which is similarly spec'd (950/4200), slightly cheaper, and has a better cooler (in most cases).

A) 2GB would have pushed its price up way too far

B) The GTX 560 Ti has months and months and months left in its lifespan and will continue to perform very well into the future

Yeah The level 10 just isn't my cup of tea, there is just too much going on for me but I can definately see how that would be attractive to people who like the case.

Good review, I do like the looks of the card and performance on it.
The rep on here has been helpful, I know for me he has anyways.
