Great Mid-Tier Card!
Pros: I got this card a few weeks ago to replace my 260 GTX and boy is it an upgrade! I usually would have to run most games on medium-ish/high with 1280x1024. Now I'm running everything as high as I can. -Just Cause 2: 260 GTX : 54 FPS on Desert Sunrise w/ 1280x1024 and mediumish high settings, no AA. 560 Ti : 74 FPS on Desert Sunrise 1600x1200 2x AA, GPU simulated water, very high settings. -Metro 2033 : 260: 30-50 FPS medium settings DX9 1280x1024, AFx4 560: 40-60 FPS very high settings DX11 1600x1200, AFx16 -Bad Company 2 (w/ latest patch) : 260: 30-40 FPS Maximum settings DX9 560: 40-60 FPS Maximum settings DX9 -No problems POST'ing -No problems at all -Good size -Runs cool... 30C idle and 68C with a full load ( with the fan at 30% ) as compared to my 260 which would sometimes go up to 90C full load and 50C idle.
Cons: -Won't be able to max out Battlefield 3 with a stable framerate. Get three of these in SLI and it probably will... but at that point you might as well get a 580 or two 580s.
Overall Review: My specs : EVGA nForce 780i Mobo Intel Core 2 Duo OC'd @ 3.8ghz DDR2 4GB RAM 560 Ti 500GB HDD -There has been a lot of negative feedback on Newegg's packaging techniques with paper instead of peanuts but the way they packaged my product with paper was very professional. No physical damage to the product or box. In a way I believe this method of packaging is superior to packing peanuts.
