570 or 570 HD or 480 which to buy? - Page 2

post #11 of 43
I think the PCB design of the 570HD is different than reference, so if you plan on water cooling, you may have trouble finding a good block for the card.

If not, then the 570 HD is a cool option as it has display port (if that matters to you).

480 , i had 2 in sli and where fast. 850 cores on them, I like 480 over 570 becase the fact 570 die and cant overclock or will be bricked card. 480 all the way. 580 = 480, but 5 % faster @ clocks. and it overclocks faster got my 580 @ 950 core @ 1.15 volts. got a mcw60 on it. mcw 80 dose not fit
my 285 was 90-120 fps in bc2 dx 9 no shadows no effects. no aa .
480 was dx 11 everythign maxed ~80 fps.
580 is 90-120 fps maxed out @ 1080

I'd go for the 480 if you want to same money, 570 if you want to vent the heat out the back and not into your case. (main reason I got 570's)

And I think the whole "570's blow up thing has gone way out of control" If it blows, you get a new one via RMA, if it doesn't you have yourself a good card.

Thank you for all the great responses.

I've pretty much cut out the idea of the HD.
My HDTV doesn't have a display port and PC signal doesn't work on it through HDMI, only through VGA. I'm eventually going to buy a 3D monitor but I don't think the HD will display the 3D over the 1.4a HDMI port that it has so I'll need to go Dual-Link anyway.

I'm torn between 480 and 570. I always like having the newer architecture but I plan on pushing the card to the max OC I can get and my setup has really good ventilation air cooled.

One fear I have about the 570 is the power throttling. Is there a way to shut that off? If there is not I'd hate to have it OC'd and be in the middle of game and then my FPS goes from like 20fps and drop to 8fps because it throttles down during an intense seen like a raid or like a resource heavy part of the game.

480 is better, and will fold better.

480. You can always buy a custom cooler that will cut down on fan noise and help with temps.

480... you can't kill them

EDIT:

you can turn off the power throttling on the 570...

but expect your card to die after you do it....

due to the VRMs not being up to the task...

Impossible to get 70 degrees on that card in full load unless you're on water or you have a ****ton of high rpm fans blowing on it which will make your system sound like a rocket...

My GTX 470 hits mid 80s, imagine a stock GTX 480 overclocked.

Bottom like it's not worth it, the 570 is a superior card in every way, especially if you get the DirectCU edition which doesn't blow up when overclocking.

I'd go with a non-reference model 570 like a MSi Twin Frozr (II or III) or Asus DCII. But, that's from a purely out-of-the-box standpoint. I'm not familiar with the OCing capabilities of either of these vs. a 480. To me, though, power consumption and heat make a difference, and the 570 models I mentioned are both better when it comes to those statistics. If those aren't important to you, a quality 480 would serve you well, too--there isn't much of a difference outside of heat and power consumption, assuming you don't go with a reference 570, which might explode.

480 - better vrm, more vram, the only downside is more power, 2nd hand one's are dirt cheap now.
