Should I get it (putting price aside) ?

My current specs (if that does have anything to do with it):
Intel Core2Quad Q9550 @ 2.83 GHz
MSI P31 Neo V2
4 GBs of DDR2 RAM
XFX GeForce 9600 GSO Far Cry 2 Edition 1.5 GBs
Discovery ATX-450W (I'm going to get a 750W one)

Plus, if you have any idea, tell me what's the best feature of it?

the 560 Ti is a nice card, not too much of a difference over the 460, but the 560 works cooler and if your get a 560 Ti GC its overclocked safely for you.

If you do get one look for one that has a cyclone fan design.

yea but isnt his board pci-ex 1.0 the card is made for pci-ex 2.0 i thought that was incompatible.

i got a 680i sli mobo and i never upgraded my cards becuz i thought the new cards would lose power with a 1.0 slot instead of a 2.0 pci slot.

His 9600 is a PCI-e 2.0 GPU, they are backwards compatible with 1.0 motherboards.

But looking at it more,his motherboard has a 4.0gb/s transfer rate on the PCI-e slot which makes it a definite 1.1 board and not a 2.0, so he will be limited as said to 4.0gb/s while 2.0 at 16x is 16gb/s. Surprising considering its a Core 2 board which 90% of later revisions usually are 2.0 compatible.

If we're putting price aside, no, get a 570.
