Faster better stronger:
As we continue to follow Moores law regarding processing power doubling every other year it is becoming increasingly more common that the sole piece of hardware standing between you and n00b status is your graphics card. As CPU’s become faster they are also becoming far less utilized and your graphics hardware increasingly more so. The increase demand in faster graphics cards has fueled the industry in its drive to release faster, better stronger graphics cards every few months. The current contender for the mainstream gaming community is the Nvidia GTX 560 which comes in at the pricing sweet spot of around 250 dollars and provides good performance. Our friends at Zotac have shipped us their rendition of the GTX 560 aptly named GeForce GTX 560Ti OC which is short for an overclocked GTX 560. Join us while we review this marvel of computer gaming hardware.
Decked out in orange and black the GTX 560 stands out.
