6950, and crossfire it down the road. My friend has them crossfired, and they're pretty amazing.

That's like saying you should NEVER buy an MSI AMD board, even if you're only using an x2 or an Athlon quad.
570s have an above average failure rate, don't try to prove me wrong. I'm pretty sure you know it's true, your fanboyism just can't take the hit.

If you're into overclocking; a 570 is not really where you want to start

Fanboyism?

I'm just here to stop a stupid rumor from going around. I've seen TONS of REFERENCE 570's doing 800-900 core easy. Just because a few people had a bad card doesn't mean they're all bad.

Oh, and for the sake of argument, I almost bought a 570 myself until I was offered the 580 for a killer price.

That may be, but still. I was just expressing my opinion. Reference 570s can have VRM issues. 570 non ref are good cards though. I'd still feel a bit limited by the amount of VRAM, but that's up to OP.

Pio, as much as I agree with you, you can't fight the public opinion, even though it may be incorrect/grossly over exaggerated.

If a restaurant was suspected of serving human meat, but it turned out to be false, they'd still loose quite a lot of business. Mine included.

I think I've seen enough posts on a countless amount of forums about dead 570s which happened to take the day from a little overclocking. You can't really deny the fact that reference 570s can have issues. If you happen to get your hands on a good sample, then good for you. That does not necessarily represent all 570 buyers. And as simple as it is: The 570 shouldn't be having the issues it currently has if Nvidia actually cared about quality.

It's a gamble, really.

And I never said or claimed that every single 570 are bad cards.

Radeon HD6950 2GB/ Radeon HD5870 2GB.


On the green side of the force... Try to find a GTX480. If you can't go red and issue sorted.

I still can't believe how good 580's are.
