    My 4890 is starting to show it's age and I'm looking for an upgrade under £200.

    Going by Custom PC/Bit-techs review, is there anything better than the GTX 560 Ti TWIN FROZR II for under £200?

    Regards

    I suppose you could try a 6950? But they are fairly similar in performance.

    it depends on your budet really and if your happy with ati or want nvidia - as mentioned the 6950 is about the same and the 6970 is better but if you want nvidia, what about the 570?

    Gtx 480 performs better (on a par with a 570). but unless you watercool it, its loud and gets hot.

    Simple answer is no, 560ti's are brilliant card's, as good as a 570 when overclocked (although obviously you could overclock a 570 to get 580 performance) also (assuming your in the uk) it seems to be very hard to get hold of any ati/amd card above the 6870, hence the 560ti is a very good and pretty much your only choice right now :)

    In case you haven't ordered yet, the Twin Frozr III version of the 560Ti just popped up on Scan. Only £10 more (so £190)

    Looks like the Frozr has a better cooler. I'd go for it. No point spending much more.

    It certainly does have a good cooler, my idle temps are 30C with the TF3 fans at 40% :)
