This card is ****ing insane. I played the last level of Crysis smooth maxed out, extreme config . First time I've played the level smooth since it used to be a slide show before.

460 FTW!! Enjoy your card. Make sure to overclock it a little if you haven't already.

My new card, the 900 MHz Gigabyte Windforce 2x, which was only $234 w/free shipping at newegg. Definitely the best card for the money right now.

Looks cool but 2 fans on a 560? That seems a bit extreme for a midrange card.

Well for one thing having two fans makes it almost silent, and considering it's essentially a free after market cooler I don't see why you'd even opt for the reference design.

Highest temp I've seen at 950MHz is 65, and the fan only came up to 55% on auto, which is nearly silent. It's amazing how quiet this card is.

haha nice. My card is noisy if I don't have plenty of cooling.

I'm impressed with the overclocking of my Gigabyte 560 ti. I've been running it at 1000Mhz using 1.07v, and it stays below 70C. With 1.1v it runs at 1040MHz. I can set up to 1.15v but have not tried that yet. Even at full load with 1GHz the cooler on this card sounds like my GTX260 at idle. I'm very happy with it, especially for $234.

Just got 2 Palit GTX 560Ti 2 GB cards for SLI and they are doing real good with my 3 - 24: monitors.

Boy there short compared to my old GTX 285's.

Decide to add another 480GTX instead of upgrade to a 580. Sweeet.
