    Question Is it logical to spend 35watts more on GPU for 10% performance gain?

    Is it logical to spend 35watts more on GPU for 10% performance gain?

    Currently using MSI 6850 Power Edition/OC CycloneII which consumes 137w max at full load. Now should i go buy Leadtek 560ti which is like the nvidia reference model?

    and btw... if your psu would have supported it,then its very logical to 35w to gain 10% performance boost.
    (as far i know 560Ti is ~20% faster than 6850oc!)

    I think, YES. Afterall, its a very small increase in power consumption. With the price of that 560 ti your cost for the 10% increase in performance will clearly be negligible.

    ehhh why the name calling :/

    Anyway, it'll be worth it. Its a 560ti not a 560. Since power isn't an issue, you can increase the difference even more if you OC the 560ti.

    I'm in favor of the GTX 560Ti, look on the bright side, not only that it's an upgrade over the HD6850 (even though the gain is marginal, a solid 30% performance boost is something I'd have considered noteworthy) but you'll also be getting the optimization from the video game developers and better catering, plus the mighty PhysX which produces anything but life like Physics affect in video games, but still worth it!

    Your GTX 560 Ti won't actually work like that(won't max out, unless we are talking FurMark here), sure it'll use more power but with the added performance it's just an overall better card than the 6850. Power consumption in games should be similar or not that wide a gap from the 6850.
