EVGA????...gtx 580 + gtx 590 - Page 4

post #31 of 77
Definitely ignore the 590. Too many issues on launch with cards that went pop, for me to want to recommend them. Especially since all they did was cap the problem with drivers, when its actually a hardware issue.

I've got a single lowly 1.5GB GTX 580. And with this card, I can literally MAX out any and every game I want, PhysX or not, at 1080p....without any issues at all. Fully playable. With the ONE exception of Metro2033, but I can play nearly maxed on that.

I would say grab a 1.5GB GTX580 and save a few bucks, unless you plan on going with some insane resolution or surround (which if you went with surround, you'd need 2x 580's anyway).

I heard on another forum site that the 1.5gb struggle to produce the same level of 3D graphics did you have any issues with his ???... Im definately going to avoid the 590s thanks to all the advise on here.... now it truely is the decision of do i save some moeny and get the 1.5 to get a higher MOBO or do i go mental and break the bank buy 3gb and the expensive motheboard... Im not planning on surround yet, just one 23" 3D screen will do ...

It fully depends on your resolution. If you're at a regular resolution (just one monitor), I personally feel that 1.5GB is enough. If you DO plan to run Surround any time in the future, with 3 monitors, then you'll likely want the 3GB card. 5760 x 1080 is a LOT higher resolution than 1920x1080. So you'll fill up that vRAM a lot faster with 3 monitors.

Seems like a pretty sound investment really ..... Atleast then the option is there and if your saying the 1.5gb is as good as it is then should be pretty fine.... actually i dont even know if surround is in my future plans.....

this is the build i am looking to put the card into... a couple of changes have been made since this draft was mocked up but thats the long and short of it so SLI wont be a problem..... but i will definately go for the NON HYDRO versions caus im not into watercooling.......

The 590's will be fast but is it worth the extra cash i can nearly buy 2 580's for that price? ?? ? ?
Ok the hydro copper model, will not work with a H-70.Thats a hybrid cooler! You need a water loop/pump/rad! The Gtx 590 is a dual gpu ( very fast card) The gtx 580 is the fastest single gpu card! (great card )

IMO i would get 2x 580,s if your looking to go big! What mobo are you using?

Edit!
I would say get the 1.5 gb version ( imo) the 3gb doesnt bench all that well vs 1.5 and the gain is mute at most resolutions!

ive definately decided against the Hydro i didnt realise it was water cooled just thought they were sticking a cool name on there....


and im thinking 580... not sure on 3gb or 1.5gb.....

could you SLI one 1.5 with one 3 in the future if you wanted to ??? There technically both similar spec (that might seem extreme but im thinking for the future)

There is no point to SLI a 1.5gb and a 3gb as you will be limited to 1.5gb. as you are useing 3D I would say get the 3gb as you are efectivey rendering the same frame twice which will use up vram.

If you want to SLI later on you will need to get another 3gb card. as for it being EVGA, I think It will need to be becasue that card uses the REF PCB were the other cards like gainward/pailt use a coustom PCB so I don't know if you can use 2 differant PCB cards in SLI.

I've got a single lowly 1.5GB GTX 580. And with this card, I can literally MAX out any and every game I want, PhysX or not, at 1080p....without any issues at all. Fully playable. With the ONE exception of Metro2033, but I can play nearly maxed on that.

I would say grab a 1.5GB GTX580 and save a few bucks, unless you plan on going with some insane resolution or surround (which if you went with surround, you'd need 2x 580's anyway).
My single EVGA 1.5 maxes out metro 2033 at 40-60 fps consistently (spikes at 120) I guess each card is different. The ONLY game I have ever had problems with is FFXIV, which I can max setting out on... as long as I leave depth of field AND ambient occlusion off.. which kills me, I love both of those settings. I would gladly play with 10 fps if it were possible just for those lol. FFXIV is horrible to GPUs. Insane when the best single GPU on the market out can't max out ANY game at 1080p.

As far as the hydro coppers go, from the reviews I've read, they are great water blocks, and when I go water, I plan on just using the step up program to get the 3gb hydro copper.

I would suggest the 580, 3gb if you play on multi monitors, but if just one and 3D, you should be just fine with the 499$ GPU. I do use 3D, and once again, even with metro 2033, I can play with 3D at max settings, getting a plethora of FPS. If you do want to play on multiple monitors, (and I assume you don't mind going dual GPU seeing as your asking about the 590) may I suggest the ATI 6990? I've seen very good things about it, and from the benchmarks, seems better than the 590 as well. I haven't personally used either, so I'm just going on everything I've read.

One more thing, For those of you saying that it will void your warranty if you put a water block on a EVGA card, I am pretty sure it does not. I haven't seen a single claim that it would, and even in the EVGA RMA video, they ask you to replace the ORIGINAL heat sink, so I'm pretty sure it is hunky dory if you decide to get a different one. It is just a lot less hassle buying the Hydro Copper 2s.

Sorry for the long post. Hope I helped?
