If you still want to go with GTX 570, I would stick with ASUS DirectCU II GTX 570 or MSI GTX 570 Twin Frozr III

I hadn't heard of the VRM problems, so thank you for pointing that out. I did not plan on OCing my GPU, but if I ever chose to I think I would rather not have a problem with it, even if there is a warranty. Thanks

That's understandable.

Anyway, here is the thread for the killed GTX 570.

get a 24 monitor, a much more worthwhile investment than a new GPU, 24inch is the sweet spot for gaming.

or a 6850/6870 and a 24inch monitor should run you the same price as a 570
Shhh!

I read up a little an understand the just of it, but am unsure of something. From what it looks like, all 570s can possibly break even on stock settings right? I was suggested 2 brands of 570s if I chose to get one, are they ones that tend to not break?

I have been leaving towards a higher monitor, but at this time I think Ill hold onto my money. I definitely want to have the option of expanding at a later time though, without worrying about losing too much performance. To my understanding now, even a 570 should be fine with a 1080p resolution.

Thats right they don't have the problem, the ASUS DirectCU II GTX 570 or MSI GTX 570 Twin Frozr III I think they were.

Thanks, Sir Overkill.
