    Default GTX 460 TOP or GTX 560ti?

    I'm torn between these two GPUs.

    ASUS ENGTX460 DirectCU TOP/2DI/768MD5 GeForce GTX 460
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121390

    ASUS ENGTX560 TI DCII/2DI/1GD5 GeForce GTX 560 Ti
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121424

    On one hand the 460 is a solid performer that's $100 cheaper than the 560ti. On the other hand the 560ti is a newer card which should be a performer for a bit logner than the 460... How significant is the difference in these two GPUs? Is it a $100 difference?

    the difference is very noticable.

    http://www.hwcompare.com/8871/geforc...ce-gtx-560-ti/

    even the 1GB version of the 460 is beat solidly by the 560 and the 768MB version has less VRAM, Memory Bandwith, CUDA Cores, and many other things.

    it looks to me like an average of about a 20% performance gain, so the question is if that is worth 100 bucks to you or not.

    The GTX550Ti is actually worse than the 460 though so I wouldn't consider that an option personally.

    also I would look at http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130604 for 249 instead of the ASUS, but that is just me.

    I've spent all day at work today scouring the internet for reviews f both cards, the GTX460 and the GTX 560ti and all of my results are so inconclusive!

    You're saying the GTX560ti smokes the GTX460?

    did you click the first link in my post?

    if you did you would see that the average frame rate increase from the 460 to the 560 is actually like 35%.

    460 big card runs hot needs more power
    560ti smaller card, runs cool, less power

    560ti > frame rates

    I went with 560 and planning a 2nd to sli. But im getting a good 80-90 fps in trion down to about 60-70 when large ammounts of people around

    I am currently running a GTX 260. How big an upgrade would that be? To go from a GTX 260 to a GTX 560?

    A GTX 560 with an Intel 8400@3.00ghz & 4GB DDR2 Corsair RAM, would that run Rift at roughly 60fps?

    I think your CPU is going to take you out of the running for 60 fps even with a 560.

    Not if he overclocks it. I have an e8400 running at 4.3ghz on air.

    Are you getting 60 FPS with an E8400?

    With the Nvidia utility, I cannot get the E8400 past 3.5ghx without BSOD. I may be limited by my MOBO in some fashion.

    80-90 fps in what resolution / what settings?

    Low/medium?

    There is no way that card is getting above 25-30 fps with max setting / ssaa.

    I just got two gtx 295 red editions today and max sliders SSAA i'm averaging over 55 non overclocked. I've since put a huge overclock on them and haven't tested yet.

    My wife plays on the e8400 at 4.3ghz she was using 2 gtx 275's but today she got my 2x 470's. She was getting 45 FPS with the 275's but i have no idea what she's getting with the 470's.

    Cool story bro, but I was talking about his single 560 ti card that magically gets 90 fps.

    Anything useful to say?

    I am not going to buy 2 of any card. I get roughly 30fps on High with my GTX 260 at the moment.
