The Galaxy GTX 560 Ti GC is another great incarnation of the GTX 560 and probably one of the best looking ones due to that aggressive nature of the shroud and those two mean looking 90mm fans that sit on top of the card.
Overclocking was a breeze and adding the extra voltage didn't cause any issues at all. While the card of course ran a little warmer, it continued to be nice and quiet which for most is a trade off they would prefer - A few more degrees to keep the decibels nice and low.
The thing is, though, it's one thing to have a card that's good value and another to have a good valued card you would want to use and will feel comfortable with knowing that it's going to give you the performance you need. At 1920 x 1200 we can see for the most part this card won't have an issue with a lot of games and may need a small detail adjustment in some of the more intensive ones.
At 1680 x 1050 the card runs like an absolute champion and AA shouldn't be an issue as we see at 1920 x 1200 in Mafia II, AA performance is right on the edge. Drop back to a slightly lower resolution and you're going to have numbers that anyone would be happy with.
If you can pick up a card like this one which carries the same MSRP as a reference designed card from NVIDIA and then proceed to crank the core up to around the 950MHz mark and the memory to around the 4400MHz QDR, you're going to have one of, if not the best valued card on the market.
NVIDIA has done a good job with this model and the fact that they've let their partners go crazy from launch day means it's a whole lot more exciting than what some of the competition has to offer.
