55-70 is a very nice temperature.

I vae my 6870 in a Raven 3 with an aftermarket fan and with that I get 54-65c with an overclock, so 55-70 is actually a decent temp as Nvidia generally pump more raw volts through thier circuits=more heat, now if you were hitting 68-80 then I would up the fan speed, but todays cards are built to get into the 90s without issue(as they are built to throttle to cool down and such) I like to keep my cards in the 60-70 range which is usally a 54%-65% fan speed.

560Ti are directly comparable to a 6950 even faster when overclocked, the 560 448 core is neck and neck with a 570 and 6970, as far as a single 560Ti= to 2xGTX460, I disagree, it still gets high frame rates and can use pretty much the same settings however the 460=better FPS.

I would be happy with the 560Ti, its not the fastest card out there, but it is a very good performing, excellent $/performance card :)

max temp depends on case cooling and airflow, and you can try to run the games with V-SYNC ON, sometimes if will make the card to work less and stay cooler...your mileage may vary.

I play BF3 with my SLI 560Ti TFII/OC setup and 60 degrees celsius max temp (1680 X 1050), V-SYNC on, HBAO ON, all HIGH settings...

Great cards...

I put two 560ti's (Evga) in a build I did for my wife about a year ago, great "bang for buck" Cards indeed!!

well it's not a matter of my opinion it's fact i have all of these cards in house i have benchmarked all of them from the gtx 460'480 and the 560ti and 560 ti 448 cores and i have shown that the 560ti 448 core gets better fps hands down at higher setting i am not reading reviews and coming up with this.
It's from me trying it out on my workstations the 560 is a great card the 560 448 core is down right wicked i have jumped from sli 460's to sli 480's to sli 560 448 cores and there's a huge difference and i still own all of the above cards can anyone say folding farm maybe lol and how you think a single 460 is getting better fps then a card with higher specs period seems kinda silly don't ya think ( if it was so nvidia dropped the ball eh ) even the 560 SoC i own gets almost the same score in 3dmark11 as the sli's 460's did

I'll had my 2 cents here, I own a 560 Ti twinfrozr and it's a very good card. I don't game as much as I used to but this card provide very decent performances in most games. A very good bang for the buck indeed. Another thing, of late, I prefer buying a mid-high end GPU and change it more often then buying a high end gpu. For me it's not worth it.

original amount
Actually you can look at it this way, I always purchase high end Cards, BUT you sell em before they take a huge plunge in price (try to re-coop) approx.60- 70% of there original cost, if you do this routinely (not wait till there worth bugger-all), you can always have the high end Card/s for minimal cost.....its all irrelevant really.

My clan mates who plays BF3 with AMD cards have much more issues than nVidia owners. You have a great card!
Apart from decrease in lifespan of fans, is there any risk by setting fan speed at 70-90% at 55-60C?
