Just picked up the N560GTX-Ti Twin Frozr II OC from MSI. Had a few issues after installation but so far, so good today -knock on wood-.

I did have my GTX260 as a PPU after getting this but the additional power consumption and heat output in my rig just didn't sit well with me. I'll add it back in after I upgrade the rest of my components throughout the year.

Thanks.

Yeah, the difference is like night and day compared to my GTS 250. Crysis is playable maxed(and AA) out at last for me. LOL.

My wife is going to ownz me when she finds out I paid £150 for the card though.

Maybe the question will be a bit stupid as I don't know the board you're using but... why don't you use both cards? That GTS250 calls for an excellent PhysX off-loader so you'll have an even bigger performance boost (theoretically, at least)

It will probably be my last post if I do.

I still cannot get over the power of this card though. It runs louder and hotter but, oh well .
