Default 560 Ti SLI vs 670

Currently right now I have two 560 Ti's and I was wondering if I should sell them and get a 670? Maybe later on get another 670 later on down the road.

I also want to water cool and for the specific cards that I have I can't find a full cover water block because they are non reference cards.

I am using a resolution of 1920 x 1080.

Thanks

Yes I vote gtx 670. Less power consumption less heat more performance!

hey there is a guy I know selling a gtx 670 on the forum right now!

Unfortunately I can't buy it now as I don't have the funds yet. I am sure I could probably only get $150-$175 for each of my cards.

Same performance... if you want the cooler running sell your 560's to cover most of the cost.. but at 1080 1 670 is PLENTY


From the leaked info so far the 660ti will be very close to the 670... might be worth it to sell at $150+ each for a $300 replacement.. time and tests will tell.

Yeah, when I was looking into the 680 I'm currently running I also attempted to estimate the relative performance of both the 680 and the 670 to the pair of sli'd 560ti (standard) cards. What it looked like to me was a gain with the 680, and pretty close to parity with the 670 as far as performance @ 1900 X 1200, but power / heat would be drastically reduced.

It will be hard to get more then $150 for them. I've seen 570's sell for $170-160 on kijiji. And those 560ti's are going to be a lot less desireable once the 660 or 660ti drops. If you are going to be doing that I would do it sooner then later.

Really should just start your own thread..

But IMO it's not worth the cost for the performance increase.. unless you get a really good price for your 570
A 560ti would just be worth it.. (IMO)

Of course it depends on what they retail for and how good they are (there have been some leaked benches already)

You probally want get but around $130 to $140 for each .I sold my GTX-470 and got $135 for each but the GTX-670 was well worth it it was faster in most games and it was whisper quiet and uses less power,plus the 2gigs of video ram helped out when useing high FSAA.
