Ultra Durable VGA™
Features & Benefits GPU Temperature 5%~10% down Ultra Durable VGA board provides dramatic cooling effect on lowering both GPU and memory temperature by doubling the copper inner layer of PCB. GIGABYTE Ultra Durable VGA can lower GPU temperature by 5% to 10%. Overclocking Capability 10%~30% Up Ultra Durable VGA board reduces voltage ripples in normal and transient state, thus effectively lowers noises and ensures higher overclocking capability. GIGABYTE Ultra Durable VGA graphic accelerators improve overclocking capability by 10% to 30%. Power Switching Loss 10%~30% Down Ultra Durable VGA board allows more bandwidth for electron passage and reduces circuit impedance. The less circuit impedance, the more stable flow of current and can effectively improve power efficiency. GIGABYTE Ultra Durable VGA can lower power switching loss by 10% to 30%.

NVIDIA® CUDA™ technology unlocks the power of the hundreds of cores in your NVIDIA® GeForce® graphics processor (GPU) to accelerate some of the most performance hungry computing applications. The CUDA™ technology already adopted by thousands of programers to speed up those performance hungry computing applications.
NVIDIA® PhysX™ is the next big thing in gaming!Delivering physics in games is no easy task. It's an extremely compute-intensive environment based on a unique set of physics algorithms that require tremendous amounts of simultaneous mathematical and logical calculations. The best way to get real-time physics, such as explosions that cause dust and debris, characters with life-like motion or cloth that drapes and tears naturally is with an NVIDIA®PhysX™-ready GeForce® processor. PhysX software is widely adopted by over 150 games, is used by more than 10,000 registered users and is supported on Sony Playstation 3, Microsoft Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii and PC. PhysX™ technology will take gaming to a whole new level.
Delivers up to 2X the performance of a single GPU configuration for unparalleled gaming experiences by allowing two graphics cards to run in parallel. The must-have feature for performance PCI Express graphics, SLI dramatically scales performance on 60 top PC games.
NVIDIA® 3D Vision™
NVIDIA® 3D Vision™ brings a fully immersive stereoscopic 3D experience to the PC. A combination of high-tech wireless glasses and advanced software 3D Vision transforms hundreds of PC games into full stereoscopic 3D. Users can even watch 3D movies and 3D digital photographs in crystal-clear quality.
Microsoft Windows 7 is the next generation operating system that will mark a dramatic improvement in the way the OS takes advantage of the graphics processing unit (GPU) to provide a more compelling user experience. By taking advangate of the GPU for both graphics and computing, Windows 7 will not only make todays's PCs more visual and more interactive but also ensure that they have the speed and responsiveness customers want

I'm really satisfied with this product. I replaced a XFX hd6870 that was probably defective with this card. This card at 100% fan speed is quieter than the hd6870 at 40%. Performance are almost equal (the hd6870 has a small edge) but this GTX560 has a lot more room for overclocking (ymmv).
So far it been great, it only took me 15-30 minutes to get it working just by installing the drivers, if you have internet then you can install the latest driver within 15-20 minutes. Tested on 3D mark 06 and got good scores right off the bat and FPS where pretty good on a old AMD 64 x2 4000+ CPU. One of the best videos card you can get for it value. You can also overclock this card over 1 GHZ just by changing the core voltage in the gigabyte overclocking utility because if you use like MSI you can't change the core voltage because MSI core voltage unlock only works for MSI video cards. Overall it the best cards to get for it value and it very close to the ti version if not better in some cases.

I bought two of these a few weeks ago as an upgrade to my aging GTX260. I put these in SLI and am able to get consistent, 60+ fps in almost any game at 1680x1050 resolution. Battlefield 3 runs like a dream as well.
The cards are very quiet and even when the fans spin up during heavy gaming/computing, they can barely be heard.
