I needed to replace two 4870s in SLI, but I only had $200 to spend. I did a lot of research, and decided on a GTX 560. Why get a 560 Ti when this card is actually clocked higher, and costs over $50 less?

I popped it in, installed the latest drivers, and loaded some games. Skyrim went from minimum to high graphics, automatically! It used to look just like Oblivion, but now it's a brand new game. WoW runs great on Ultra now, with full DX11 support. Minecraft went from 125 FPS to over 250!

Not to mention it's much quieter, even at full load, and draws less power. I thought about overclocking it, but it runs so well now, why would I?

Even at fan speeds of 100% I cannot hear anything. My previous video card would run at 90C + playing dead island. but this card hovers around 70-75 celcius and when the fan goes up to 100% i dont even hear it. Great job Gigabyte. I knew I should have bought Gigabyte rather than dive into a another manufacturer card which gave me huge problems. I will stick with Gigabyte video cards and never look back.

I have been building my own computers for 10 years; for my last build, I installed an EVGA 8800GTX video card (at the time I bought it in 2006, a bleeding edge video card). It lasted until this previous January, when it finally burned out. I researched the replacement carefully; I had a very limited budget, yet I still wanted to play all the latest games (such as battlefield 3) on a 24 inch monitor with decent graphics and no lag. I understand that this is a compromise, a balance between money and performance, but I think I got a pretty good deal. The setup is ridiculously easy (the disk that came with the card even had the latest video drivers on it!), and the included software includes a program that lets you overclock the chip and the fan from the windows desktop. The card fan is very quiet at the default speed; even at the default speed, I can run my games with little or no lag. The software also has a temperature reading for the card; it doesn't put out a lot of heat when running, and in the 5 months I've been using the video card, I haven't had a single problem.

Specs for my machine: Silverstone TJ10 case, PC Power & Cooling 750 Watt PS, Asus P5N32-SLI Premium Motherboard, Intel Core2 Duo E6700 @2.66 GHz, 4Gb Corsair RAM, WD Velociraptor 300 Gb HD, WD Black 1 Tb HD (storage), Samsung DVDRW drive, Soundblaster X-fi soundcard, and of course this video card. As those of you in the know can tell, 6 years ago this was a hot system; now, everything still works pretty well, and this video card will ensure that I can still watch movies and play the latest games.

I upgraded from a pair of 8800GT's in SLI to this card and i'm not sorry. The price was right and this card is nearly silent. Skyrim plays at high graphics and WOW has no problem in ultra. Sometime in the future I plan to get a second card to run SLI again but at the moment there really is no need.

This card (superclocked edition) outperforms the 560 Ti with many games, and its $50 cheaper which is great for those looking for bang for their buck. Like others have said, this card is pretty quiet compared to other cards. It eats pretty much any game I throw at it, and the Gigabyte OC Guru software that comes with it is nifty in that it shows GPU temp, power usage and fan speeds. as well as other things.

It's worth noting that this card is massive and heavy. Extending almost 10 inches in length and more than an inch thick, make sure your case has room. Gigabyte also makes a smaller and more compact overclocked 560GTX, but its clocked slightly lower than this one (see the other Gigabyte GTX560 cards with the blue eye on the box cover, these are smaller).

Also, its normal for this card to make a brief (about 1/2 second) grinding noise from its fans when you power on your PC. I originally thought my first card had an issue with bad fan bearings because of the noise, and after purchasing a second card it also has the same exact noise. So its nothing to worry about!
