Best card for 160-180?

Finally sold my HD5850 today, looking to buy a new card now, can be AMD or Nvidia.


I was thinking the GTX 560ti which I will Sli in the future no doubt.

Any other suggestions?


Cheers

Paul.

UK, huh? Go for the Gainward 560Ti Phantom.

EDIT: Oi. A bit too expensive from EBuyer, but the 560 is definitely a good choice.

Thanks Terronium,

Couldn't find any in stock anywhere and the ones out of stock were like 200

I have now ordered a KFA GTX 560ti OC which is being delivered tomorrow

KFA2 GTX 560Ti OC 1GB GDDR5 Dual DVI HDMI Out PCI-E.. | Ebuyer.com



Hopefully it will do the job!


Cheers

If you're really looking for over 160 you can buy a Radeon HD 6950, but they're just over 180. So, you can save yourself some money and maybe buy a Radeon HD 6870 for at least 50 less. Then if you wish make a pair of them.
These prices are from Scan.co.uk and don't use eBuyer, they sell at the most expensive price out of everyone.

Thanks for the advice , however it's a little late now lol

See my post above.


I looked at the 6950 the performance difference from the 560ti was negligible, and although the 6870 is an ok card for cheap money now I still felt the 560ti was the best for the option of sli in the future.

Completely forgot about KFA. I wish both KFA and Gainward were available in the states.

Post pictures (if you can) when it arrives!

Oh man , this card totally rocks!!

Plays dirt 3 on Ultra settings smooth as silk

It overclocks like a dream , stock is - 835/1670/2000 , Got it running rock solid with real low temps at 960/1920/2180 and have not even hit the wall yet

Well happy, not had chance to take any pics as I was eager to get it in lol , but will try and post one of it in my pc tomorrow.
