570 or 570 HD or 480 which to buy?

post #1 of 43
Thread Starter 
I'm stuck between these three.
Gtx 570. Gtx 570 HD. Gtx 480.

570 HD isn't as cool which means I probably won't be able to overclock as high for gaming. However the HDMI port may be nice.

Performance may or may not be better on a 480 I'm not sure.

90% of the time I use my computer for gaming.
10% for online TV or DVD movies.

If heat is a concern the 480 is prolly not for u. And if u can shell out a couple extra dollars I'd def recommend the 570 twin frozr III, def worth it for a cool and very overclockable card.

cheap 480 or 570 not hd,

ive heard that many 570 are dying from overclock...

i own one 480 and i must say that when i play BC2 its almost between 90/100ºC...the high rpm fan dont bother me, but i switch it to a prolimatech MK-13 with only one 140mm 800rpm.Same temperatures but zero noise.

GTX480 is a great card with great overclocking headroom provided you have decent case airflow.

The heat concerns were largely overblown at release but at the end of the day the card will run at 70 degrees or higher and it will dissipate over 200W of power when you play games. Whether either of those are issues to you I cannot answer.

570 gtx non reference PCB would be the best choice. Asus 570 DCII etc.

I say best choice as even tho the 480 and 570 are on par at stock, the 570's overclock higher in most cases. 480's are also known to have heat problems so if you do end up considering it, look for non refference coolers like the Gigabyte 480 super overclock (triple fan)

I don't think the 570HD would be a good choice at all, the cooler performs worse than the reference one due to the lack of a vapour chamber.

They are on par at stock and they are on par at most overclocks. This has been argued multiple times across these forums.
