GXT560 and GTX570 comparison

i need help choosing which card is better,,

2.048GB GeForce GTX560 256bit DDR5
or
1.280GB GeForce GTX570 320bit DDR5

I'm quite confused in terms of the memory amount.

the price diferrence between these cards is just about 80USD.

and one more thing.. which brand is better? inno3d or Palit? (terms of built)


and which model gives more support to overclocking.?

The 570 is without question the better card. 1GB of video ram is sufficient for any game out there today. It's better to have a stronger, faster video card with more processing power than extra RAM on a lower end card.

As far as the brands, I've never even heard of inno3d...and have no experience with Palit. I highly suggest sticking to brands like eVGA or XfX as they have great warranties and solid support.

Nvidia control center dictates overclocking.
It's not something I would really recommend doing to a out of the box graphics card in the first place as they generate insane amounts of heat and power consumption even at factory settings.

The 320bit ddr5 is going to move texture data faster in the 570 but the 560 is going to offer a larger pool of texture memory.
It's kind of a trade off with the two specific cards you've listed there.
You'll get better speed and stream processing from the 570, but that specific 560 will hold a larger texture cache.

It would be easier if you linked specific models you were intending to buy for reference as well.
I'm not familiar with either of those manufacturers. When buying nvidia I usual go with evga.

which is advantageous? move data faster or larger pool of texture memory?

Huh

There are zero OC options in NCC...





Put simply - the 570 is a faster card.

move data faster



EDIT:

Larger VRAM is really only beneficial for resolutions above 2560x1600 etc

Really I have a registry file somewhere on my busted machine that allowed me to unlock a overclocking tab in the nvidia panel.


...at least we do agree the speed will be more telling for you I think.

Don't let the amount of RAM be the deciding factor. Anything at 1GB or above is more than enough.

For overclocking, I have never seen any options in the NVCP myself either.
But my card has eVGA Precision, which allows for Overclocking, Custom fan Profiles etc.



I do agree with everyone else.
570 is certainly the faster card.
And, 1GB VRAM will be fine for 1920x1200, 1920x1080 or less.

Never used either of those brands. I too would recommend sticking with the more well known companies.
eVGA, XFX, Gigabyte etc .. eVGA would be my choice for Nvidia.


I would say, single monitor+heavy gamer = 570
Multiple Monitor/High Res Workstation, and very little gaming = 560

If you are a heavy gamer looking for high res/multiple monitor setup, you should probably be looking into a multi GPU setup anyway.
