580, 570 or sli 560 with new motherboard?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hello

I have two 560s and have a couple questions. One of my 560s is getting replaced by pny and was wondering if I should keep them or get a 570 or a 580? My pci e slots are so close together that I have maybe 1/8 to a 1/4 inch between the cards. The top card will get to about 80-85 degrees Celsius without being overclocked. So maybe a single card would be better. I am going to buy my old lady a 460 but if I buy a 570 or 580 I could give her the 560 I'm using now and sell the new 560 on ebay. Or should I just buy a new mobo that has the pci e slots farther away from each other. I dont care for pny, dont know why I even went with that brand.

If you consider that SLI will give headaches (overheating here)...well, a single card might be better...

BUT a 560Ti SLI setup will be from 20% to 40% (DEPENDING ON GAME) than a GTX580 at resolutions of 1680 X 1050 and 1920 X 1080....

And you got that situation, where you need a card for your wife, so there is two things to consider!!!

SLI without proper mobo and/or case...is not optimal...

And don't even consider the 570...weak VRMs....unless you grab a 570 twinfrozr III or a Asus direct cuII with upgraded powerstages....

Im thinking about keeping my 560s but I need a bigger mobo so the cards are spread out more. What do you think about the asrock fatality board?

I'm no big fan of Asrock (used to be really budget-oriented)...now, they seem to be doing fine...

The thing with P67 boards is that most of them will overclock to ABOUT the same speeds...it's all about the features and price!

MSI, Gigabyte, Asus...ASROCK? dunno much about them, but I think the fatality board has a soundblaster X-FI sound chip on it...might be good!

The killer tho...freakin Fatality's face on the boot screen!!! beurk!

Look at my card's spacing on P8P67 Deluxe...

BSHAN67,

How do you like your 120hz monitor with SLI 560Ti?

Love it, everything is crystal clear with my monitor. Ill never go back to a 60hz. Like your mobo, wish I could keep my mobo and cool that top card.

The 16x/4x is not great...

Can you "test the ground" and try to sell your actual board? A P8P67 Pro would be a good one!

there will be no noticibale effect running a 560 in a 4x slot.

I agree with this. There might be a few % difference in performance vs 8x/8x, but that is nothing compared to the 80-90% performance gain you will get from running the cards in SLI. Basically, when it comes to SLI, you almost never lose

Dual 560s make a beast of a gaming setup for what they cost.
