I bought 2 NVIDIA GTX 560s for my upcoming birthday. They are replacing my old 280s. I did it out of frustration because BI and NVIDIA stopped supporting the 200 series and let my favorite FPS (ArmA 2) stop working with its drivers. They are in my price range and seem to be way better than the lower series. So Wackbag, did I make a good choice?

Here they are on NewEgg.

Before I forget, I would suck a black gentleman's penis for 2 GTX 590s. Who has $800 to throw around for that kind of GPU?! :icon_eek:

Are they being powered by a small nuclear reactor in your garage?

You upgrading your PSU too or is it already capable?

If that choice was to make other people jealous, then you made a good choice. :fu:

2 GTX 560s are the best bang for the buck for dual card setup. They scale really well.

I would assume you have a monster monitor to game at crazy resolutions. If not you could save about $60-$70 with something like a 2gb 6970. So many games are console ports that SLI/x-fire is overkill these days unless you're at higher than 1900x1200.

Why do you need 2 video cards? I have a nvida 260 and have 2 monitors plugged in to it.

What size monitor? I use 2x 260's @ 1900x1200 on a 30' monitor. I still get 50-60 fps on FNV.
