Gtx 580

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
So. I am still pondering if I want to fork out the $ for this beast.

The reason is A lot of games are coming out soon and I want to make sure my pc and this card could run them with no drawbacks and great fps.

Max Payne 3
Battle Field 3
The New Elder Scrools SKyrim
Diablo 3


Will this card be able to do that? Or will in the fall the 600 series come out and the 580 will drop to like $200?

I just want to invest in a card at the right time and KNOW that I'm going to get a few years out of it.

well,

If you're going to be forking out the GTX580, I'd probably go with a GTX 570 and then get a second one when you get a little extra cash, these two would outperform the GTX580 by a fair mile. But if you're planning on a second 580 then it's a no brainer.

To put it another way, i'm running a GTX270 for a physx card which is slightly below yours. This gives me an extra 15 - 20 FPS in some physx enabled games.

Prices won't drop that far. It'd still be a good buy if you can deal with it not being the latest and greatest thing when the 600 series drops. The 600 series flagship should give 30% increased performance or so, if it follows the trend.

The 580 should be able to handle pretty much anything in the next couple years, except for those freak of nature games like crysis and metro 2033.

Best guess on the 600 series flagship (it'll be 670 or 680) is November.

I'd say wait. Skyrim and the 600 series should launch around the same time, so you'll either get a better price on the 580(probably ~$375) or you'll be able to go straight to the 600 series.

November will start the trickle of Nvidia 600 series cards along with the new AMD 7000 cards until mid-January. If you can wait to play those games your wanting until then, I'd suggest wait.

If you can't wait that long then you won't be sorry for getting the GTX 580. I can tell you it's a great card and perfect single card solution.

I made my choice last January and when prices do finally go down I will SLI it and be very happy camper playing any games thrown at me for a few years.

So the choice on what to do ultimately is yours.
