Gpu

Thanks for the rating
regarding Gpu The 560 Ti is over clocked and works excellently on all games on ultra settings I don't have any regrets in buying it. Excellent fps on the Witcher 2, Battfiled 3, COD Modern Warfare 3, Skyrim, Batman Arkham City all settings on Ultra with no lag, so buying a 570, 580 or even a 590 card wasn't necessary. I was going for 580 gtx card but the price was a bit steep, and I'd spend most of my budget on CPU and Rampage III motherboard, found the 2GB 560Ti card on novatech for £224 so i went for that card and I have no regrets.

Also Skyrim is maxed out with HD mods for Graphics and Lighting and not a drop in fps or any lag with 560Ti card. I would recommend the card is excellent for a budget card
