GTX 560 vs 570

May 13, 2011 at 00:51:20
Specs: Windows 7, 2 GHz / 3071 MB
Any thoughts on the difference of performance between these two cards? I said to myself I'd be willing to pay the extra $100 if the GTX 570 was 25% faster than than the 560.

well...what do you think? Thanks

if you have a 550W PSU then get the 570,

Here is the spec sheets http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/gr...

570 first on left and 560 in the middle one.

25% faster? Where did you come up with that? At best, 10%, plus higher power consumption.

Mickliq dont think he knows the performance differences and was saying that it is is 25% better then it would justify spending the extra $100 on the 570

Thank you Daniel, this review with the spec database charts really helped. I've decided to go with the 560, because it seems more value for performance to me. My 750w PSU will have no problem handling it.

What I hear the OP saying is that he is willing to pay $100 more for 25% increase in performance.

550W power supply means next to nothing. You need to look at Wattage. The chart Mick linked shows the draw for both. Divide those numbers by 12 to determine how many amps each one will draw. That comes to 14+A & 18+A just for graphics. Depending on what CPU you are running that could add another 140W. Then of course there are motherboard needs, drives & fans.

A quality 550W unit may supply that, but a cheap $20 unit probably won't.

You may need a power supply with a single 12V rail with at least 34A.

Below is a link that may help you with the pricing.
