Both will not beat a Gainward 580 3GB Phantom when running 2 or more 1080p displays or value wise

OP: If you still haven't decided, go for the cheapest option. I reccommend ASUS http://uk.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/NV...5802DI1536MD5/

It's a reference card but has voltage tweak and comes overclocked to begin with. The only thing is noise, but the fan profiles are pretty good anyway.

However if you were to go non reference I would reccommend the Asus GTX 580 DirectCuII. Voltage Tweak FTW!


Dimensions are: 11" x 5" (279.4mm x 127mm) for reference
Dimensions are 11.5" x 5" (292.1 mm x 127mm) for DXII

Besides with a reference card, if it doesn't cool to your expectations of it sounds noisy, you can always put on some aftermarket coolers and some TIM.

Palit & Gainward are the same company with different branding & both includes VTune utility,Gainward 580 3GB Phantom should suit u fine as it is easily one of the best looking tri fan cooler 580

U call that reasonable?
The OP dosen't live in Singapore so your point dossen't pertain to them in Germany. So your comparison only pertain to you in Singapore. For you it's a different story. Those replying to the OP thread are talking directly to the OP not you.

No, it's the lowest price not that it's the best. Never said that.

Originally here's what I responded to you on.

So your statement wasn't about what you just said but how the prices were exorbitant from a EVGA 580 to a 590, where in fact in the US we don't have your issue. So my response was accurate. When I replied back that two EVGA at GTX 580 $459.99 x2 $919.98 usd total for over one GTX 590 for $700 usd is only a $219.98 usd difference and for that money you will get a better performance at stock and even further even when both are over clocked widened the gap. For some that is worth it since the price gap is much closer as prices drop in the US anyway on the GTX 580's.

Did I miss something or doesn't has the Lightning voltage tweak too ?
