Hi All,

My Existing GPU is MSI GTX560 TI. Now I'm planning to upgrade but currently have this dilemma. Should I just buy another MSI GTX560 TI or buy a better graphics card?

Whats your recommendation?

Thanks,
Mark
My opinion is to consider how much your willing to pay for an upgrade. Are you running games on multiple monitors by any chance? I personally think you should just go for SLI. You could save a lot of money buy choosing to buy another 560 as they cost around 200-300 sing whilst the 680 costs 800+. Plus, 2 560s can easily run any game at max settings.

Hi,

Palit GTX 560Ti 448 cores 1.2GB @ $399
MSI HD 7850 2GB Twin Frozr OC @ $379

How does the performances differ? Which one is more worth for money?

If MSI HD 7850 is available at Sim Lim Sq, should i get it instead of Palit GTX 560Ti?

Thanks

Does ur psu have enough juice to sli 2 560ti? Does ur case has good airflow management to handle those extra heat from 2nd 560ti?

It is much better to get an oc gtx 670 cost only $569 which cream 560ti sli setup and just sell off ur 560ti. Less heat, less noise, and no sli issues.

HIS 6850 $195 3years warranty will be good enough to go high/max.

Upgrade for ati radeon X550 :s11:

my processor is dual core E5300 2.6ghz
2gb ram
230w real power with max 450w (magnum 250 psu)
graphic card length cant be increased but width can be due to limited casing size.

Looking to play games such as dota 2, counterstrike, team fortress 2. (not really high end cards).

And suggestions?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

X550 is really ancient,i was also using x300 last year. Eh firstly,i think low profile cards more suitable for you.

For decent performance low profile cards and taking into consideration the games you play dun need much requirement too. Probably hd6670,got gigabyte,xfx,powercolor and etc. Ard $120 at Tradepac

thanks for the reply. I was wondering whether other cards such as GT440 would be equally good too. And will be the power supply the cards need be too much for my psu? (230w)

Edit: I just bought a new psu 500w and the hd6670 u recommended for around 200bucks for both. It works freakin well. Thanks for the advice!
