nVidia GTX 560 graphics card by EVGA, super clocked, and at
2 GB of RAM, is a beastly machine that will run any game you
wish at maximum graphical capacity. It is one of the
greatest graphics cards to date that doesn’t use much power,
recommended for you gamers? Let’s find out!
Looks: Well to start off, the card is pretty
large and will take up two slots in your case, so make sure
it’s not a small, compact case. The card is relatively light
for its looks, which will increase air flow through the card
and allow for better cooling. The card’s cover fits over the
entire card and is gray with a single yellow streak going
across. Relatively bland design compared to other cards
especially those of ATI, but the card itself will more than
make up for bland design. The cards main board is black, which looks
nice with the gray cover, and definitely makes a great
souvenir for any gamer! Because of the bland, uncreative
design, this nVidia card can only rack up 6 points for
design; decent, but could have been better.
Features: This card will feature the newest
DirectX, DirectX 11, which looks amazing in games and is in
every new game hitting the market. The card will also
feature 2 power connecters as it will require more energy to
run this high end card but surprisingly not nearly as much
as the famed 580, which is great! This card features liquid
cooling in order for it to function the coolest it could
possibly be, which will greatly improve your gaming
capacity. The card supports up to 2-way SLI which is great
for the high-end PC gamer! nVidia did a fantastic job with
the features in the card and rack up 10 points for features!
Performance: Now we get the most important part
of a graphics card, the performance it gives to the player.
Fortunately for the buyer of this card, it pays off well!
The card runs very fast, cool, and quiet. The fan on the
card will turn up when intense gameplay is taking way, which
is great for keeping your PC maintained. Every PC including
the new Battlefield 3, can be played maxed out settings with
widescreen resolutions with great frame rate, so long as you
have the RAM and processor to support it. The card is much
overpowered and will last you a few years of intense gaming
at maxed settings. NVidia’s technology is astonishing and is
yet increasing at a rapid rate, though AMD’s ATI cards are
at a gradual catch up, so nVidia may have to watch
themselves in the near future. Overall this card’s
performance was top of the line for its price and therefore
I must score this card a 10 for 10.
