PNY 560ti OC2 Video Card Review

Oh what a tangled web Nvidia partners weave! From fancy coolers to factory over clocks, there are many Nvidia partners to choose from when selecting a video card. The 560 Ti OC2 offering from PNY does not come in a fancy, price raising brief case that looks like it holds 13 different board games, nor is it shaped like a gun with a video card inside.

You are going to have to order it online or get off the couch and into a store to go get it. But because of that, you will likely save a few bucks.
