Summary: I ordered this card on Newegg about 6 months ago and since they're now out of stock, I came here to get a second for SLI. This card is beastly. A little noisy, but not obnoxious, and runs anything i throw at it. I even had the Battlefield 3 beta running on ultra with 40-50 fps. With two, there is nothing this thing can't do. Was skeptical of an off brand name at first, but i'm impressed. Beautiful for price. The 2gb of RAM is a must have for HD resolutions.
Summary: After going through numerous reviews, and looking at tons of performance charts, I decided to take a chance on Palit to replace my aging 9800 GX2 in sli configuration. I never should have left EVGA!!! I ordered two of these bad boys to go into my full size Cosmos case that has excellent airflow, with 7 fans that make sure everything stays nice and cool.
Summary: THE CARD IS GOOD WHEN IT WORKS, BUT IT DIED AFTER ONLY 4MONTH, I HAD 100% FAN SPEED ON AT ALL TIME TO KEEP TEMPERATURE AS LOW AS POSSIBLE TO PREVENT EARLY FAILURE, WHENEVER I RUN A GAME, THE DRIVER WOULD CRASH, TOOK IT OUT AND PUT MY OLD GTX 460 IN AND PROBLEM SOLVED. THIS IS THE FIRST VIDEO CARD THAT EVER FAILED ON ME, YOU CAN TELL BY THE WAY IT WAS MADE, IT'S CHEAPLY MADE COMPARE TO OTHER BRANDS LIKE EVGA.
Plug and Play Perfection - until it failed after 4 months

Summary: After spending a month trying to get the MSI 560ti to work (including trying two different MSI cards), I got this and it works perfectly. It is slightly noisy on load but the build quality is much better than the MSI card, plus, it actually works. It plays everything I have thrown at it without issues. I am very happy with this purchase. Update August 3, 2011 Well, I guess I'm a member of the Palit 4 month club also.
Summary: The Video Card has,by far,exceeded my expectations. I can play any video game freely without lag and at the maximum settings. Great Card. Crysis 2,Black Ops,Shift 2,Homefront Never looks so good and ran as smoothly!!!
Summary: I upgraded to this from an EVGA GeForce GTX 260 Core 216, and am happy with the results. I was a little leery of choosing Palit, as I haven't used any of their hardware before and I put a premium on reliability and quality construction of computer components. However, they are as of yet the only manufacturer offering a version of the GTX 560 ti with 2GB of RAM instead of the stock 1GB on the NVidia reference.
Summary: I wanted to upgrade my gpu and did a lot of research. I finally picked the palit 560 Ti 2GB model and am completely satisfied. It handles crysis, <--it's sandbox editor, 3dmax models, revit, cad .... Paying an extra $500 coulda got me the quadro 4000 and it's fancy drivers, but hehe not on my budget. What I like most about it is the size. It's not as long and doesn't block my mobo sata ports like my old card. This card is also quieter and runs cooler. Big plus.
Summary: Awesome upgrade from GTX 260! Always Uses above 1 gig of memory in titles like Metro 2033, Mafia 2, And Medal of Honor, So there is some use of the extra ram i see, Got 50 bucks off this card and i figured i stole this thing at 179.00, With Battlefield 3 coming soon the 2gigs of ram, and the old 260 for phys x is a no brainer, welcome to the future of gaming! Were 2 gigs of VRAM should be Standard on high end Cards!
Summary: A lot of people will tell you that you will never use more than 1GB of Video Memory so why waste your money? Well, for most I would say that is true you probably will never use all of the 2GB of memory. But for $10-$20 more, why not double your memory? Its rumored that Bill Gates once said 640k of memory would be all you would ever need. :) I run dual 28" monitors. The extra memory helps me out. I have not gotten above 1.5 yet but I'm always over 1gig.
Summary: Sehr leise Grafikkarte mit sehr viel Power. Trotz des wenigen Platzes in meinen PC ist die Grafikkarte sehr kühl im Leerlauf unter 33 Grad bei Anspruchsvollen Spielen wie Anno 2070 oder Metro 2033 keine Probleme. Das höchste an Temperatur hatte ich bisher nur 66 Grad.
