Default Re: SLI 470 or 560Ti in SLI

I think spending $500 on last years' performers or 560ti's is a waste of money right now IMO. the new cards are not too far away. If I were building right now, I'd just get a low end card like an older ATI or something and just make due until the end of the year to see what new cards are out.

There's bound to be a mid level card one of the companies will release that will be priced well and perform on par with a pair of 470's or close to it that will consume WAAAAY less power than a pair of 470's and produce far less heat.

My 470's consume a tremendous amount of power matched only by the amount of heat that they also pump out.

I would say just get another GTX 470, since you already have one. As the others have said, you're going to get pretty much the same performance as dual GTX 560 Ti's would offer. Myself, I am running 2 EVGA GTX 560 Ti cards and love em.

Old topic.. Just saw that lol. Go with another 470 IMO.

Another GTX 470 without a doubt, about the same performance as a 560Ti but you do have and extra 280MB qhich will help in full HD rez.

Default Re: SLI 470 or 560Ti in SLI

I can think of a few reasons why I would get a 560ti but my 470 died and I was RMA'd a 560Ti quite happy with it really. If you can get it for free then go for it otherwise deal with it

1: Most 560TI brands are preoverclocked cards come close to 480/570 performance
2: The 560TI doesn't hit temps anywhere near as high as the 470, it consumes less power produces less heat and less noise. My 470 annoyed the hell out of me on games it just destroys FPS wise, forcing me to force vsync as the high framerate starts the oven. I can imagine it being a fan assited oven with SLI.
3: That extra RAM the 470 has is only going to put to use on resolutions above 1080p below that the 560ti wins. Or the odd game that actually uses very high res textures. There ain't many, and the 560ti can cope with high texture pack addons from what I have seen of it so far.

Better option just wait till the 28nm cards are out.

Good luck finding another GTX470. They tend to stop manufaturing their best cards once a new line comes out.

I would sell the current GTX 470 and buy 2 560 Ti's as they use less power and generate less heat which is a huge bonus when OC on air vs SLI GTX 470's. I'm in the process of upgrading from SLI GTS 450's with a single GTX 560 Ti needed to complete my upgrade. I already sold a GTS 450 and kept the other one for PhysX processing. Soon, I will have SLI GTX 560 Ti's and a single GTS 450 for PhysX.

Yeah but 460/470/480 run quiet a lot hotter. I'd go 560Ti SLI.
