Summary: I bought this card to replace my older GTX 260. It was a big performance upgrade. Temps under load stay around 60c with fan at 75%. I play Far cry 3, Skyrim, and Black Ops II on high settings with no issues. I love it! However, I bought this card used and shortly after using it one of the fans started making a rattling sound. I could not find a replacement fan other than RMA to MSI. So I got a kit to water cool it with a Corsair H50. It works very well.
Cons: I've recently purchased MSI N560GTX-M2D1GD5 card, dual fans version http://www.msi.com/product/vga/N560GTX-M2D1GD5.html#?div=Overview Because of faulty VGA BIOS of gfx card that doesn't support modern resolutions mainboard BIOS doesn't get upscaled to fit
MSI N560GTX-M2D1GD5: Hi-performance graphics for the dedicated gamer!
2 April 2012
Summary: MSI N560GTX-Ti Hawk I have worked with the repair and new build of PC's for many years now and have designed systems for specific purposes. With one of my recent projects I decided to build a desktop PC specifically designed for gaming, after choosing my mainboard, cpu and ram I needed a high quality graphics card with a decent amount of onboard memory with a decent cooling unit to prevent any issue's with demanding games.
Pros: High performance graphics card, packed with features, reliable, easy to install and well priced.
Summary: For not a lot of money you get a lot of technology! A card of this price usually doesn't have such a sophisticated cooling unit but this card comes with duel fans meaning the car runs super cool even under heavy gaming loads. The GTX 560 supports all the latest standards like DX11 and PhysX meaning games the latest games will look gorgeous when utilizing all these features. MSI make very high quality components so expect this card to be very durable.
