5.0 out of 5 stars The successor to the great 8800GT! 23 Oct 2011

I have had the card for a week now and it has enabled me to play every game on my PC at 1920x1200 at maximum settings with framerates over 30 fps (STALKER: Call of Pripyat, Dead Island, Modern Warfare 2) Although none of those games really stress this card as they are older DirectX 9 titles. According to Nvidia's beta performance guide, the GTX 560 Ti is capable of running Battlefield 3 at high settings in 1920x1080 resolution which should be a good indicator of the card's performance.

The Asus 1GB GTX 560 Ti DirectCUII is currently the best value card around, like the best selling 8800GT before it. If you have read the reviews of this card from hardware sites, most of them will tell you that the ATI Radeon HD 6950 is slightly faster and in most cases it is, however at the time of the reviews the prices of the 560 Ti and the HD 6950 were the same, or the 560 Ti was more expensive.

This is not the case in the UK and you'll be lucky to find a HD 6950 with 1GB for under 200. I got my Asus GTX 560 Ti DirectCUII for 160.48 (circa early October 2011). Currently on Amazon (23/10/11), you can get a:

Asus GTX 560 Direct CU (non Ti) with the older DirectCU cooler for 148 which is almost 20 cheaper which is great if you are on a budget.
Asus GTX 560 Direct CU II (non Ti) which comes factory overclocked at 850MHz for 167.28 which is a few pence cheaper than the 560 Ti.
Asus GTX 560 Ti DirectCuII TOP is factory overclocked at 900MHz for 188.

5.0 out of 5 stars Asus GTX 560Ti... 1 May 2011

This is an amazing card for the price. I have two of them running in SLI in my upgraded rig.

I'll just focus on installation and performance and also packaging and presentation. If you want all the detailed specs etc. just scroll down and read the product description.

First things first, contents. In the box you get the card (thankfully), power-splitter cable, mini HDMI to standard HDMI adapter, VGA adapter, a few screws and a driver disc (already outdated, go to nVidia's website for the latest drivers). The box and packaging is all premium quality and presented beautifully. Exactly what you expect from Asus.

Installation was a breeze. Just find your PCIe slot on your motherboard. Slide it in. Secure it to your case with a couple of screws. Attach the power cables from your power supply and your good to go. If you have two of these and want to run SLI just pop the second one into the PCIe slot next door, secure to case, attach power supply cables and SLI bridge, go to your nVidia Control Panel and activate the SLI option. Done.

Performance is excellent. Running the Crysis GPU benchmark (found in the games `Bin64' file) a single card was getting an average of 35-45fps (DX10, 4AA, 1080p). For a card in the sub 200 pricing, this is amazing.

Running the same benchmark with two of these cards with the same settings was 70-80fps. At certain points it went over 100fps!

So to summarise, the performance of a single card is excellent and well worth the upgrade if that's what you are looking at doing. Also at less than 200 you would be a fool not to seriously consider the Asus GTX560 as a viable upgrade.

Two of these cards will eat through every current game with everything set to 'high detail'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable Value Graphics Card 8 Jun 2011
First and foremost I would like to say this card surpassed my expectations in all areas.

Asus have done a very good job designing the packaging, which has different compartments for the various items within. The entire package is held inside a larger box which I have used to keep spare computer parts in. The card itself is placed inside an anti-static foam mould which is in its own compartment. Accessories include: a DVI to VGA adapter, mini HDMI to HDMI adapter, Molex to 6Pin PCIe Power adapters, driver CD (with tweaking software) and a manual.

The card itself fairly long, about 10inches from the backplate to the front end of the heatsink shroud. It takes up two expansion slots. The backplate features two DVI-D connectors, an HDMI connector and an airflow outlet. Due to the design of the heatsink, only a small portion of air flows out of the back, most is exhausted within the case. The PCB is of a matte black finish, with two green power LEDs situated about one inch in from the 6Pin connectors. There is one SLI finger at the back end of the card which allows for a two-way SLI configuration. There is no SLI bridge bundled with the card. The heatsink itself is mainly aluminium, with three copper heat-pipes dissipating heat from the core to the front end of the card. Situated directly above the GPU die is a solid aluminium heatsink. This is cooled by an 8mm PWM fan. The three copper heatpipes make direct contact with the GPU die and spread out to a second tight finned aluminium heatsink situated at the front of the card. This is also cooled by an 8mm PWM fan. In total there are two 8mm PWM fans. The entire heatsink is shrouded with a matte black metal plate which has red accent lines. In my opinion this styling is tasteful and not over-the-top.
