I just put together my sig rig, and my dual 580s are absolutely FLAWLESS.

They destroy every game out there.

Witcher 2 with EVERYTHING on including ubersampling Im running at 60fps.

Just delicious.

Nvidia has always done me right.

Then again my lappy has a 5870 in it, and it does ok.

But considering getting a 485 lappy to replace it. Drivers are ugly with ATI.

I honestly don't get the point of all of this stupid fan boi ism, I just buy whats the best bang for my buck on the market. ATI and Nvidia are both perfectly good companies producing great products. They compete with each other, in other words, both sides are equal in one way or another, but if you can get 20% more performance for the same price, why not?

Thread Starter 
Those who suggested that I should´ve bought a 590 instead a quick explanation


I have been running GTX 295 Quad SLI since 2009.
Then I sold them for 500€ .

I also sold my Gigabyte UD5 rev.2 for 200€

Right now I have assembled the whole "temporary rig"


Little Devil V8 white
2xRX480 with Gentle Typhoons
Koolance 370
some Lighting , chrome fittings, chrome Resevoir

Gigabyte X58A-OC
GTX 580 Lightning

I had to make a choice.

Make a full gpu performance upgrade or only spend a little for a card with good resell value in order to sell it again when Kepler arrives.

And I though it was smarter to only spend a money for a minor temporary update which will still provide performance.

I chose the 580 because of the better resell value compared to the 6950 CF.
Also because the performance is so colse I thought a single card would just be better.

My whole is system is extremely overclocked.

i7950 at 4.8 GHZ
12 GB Kingston Hyper X at 2200MHZ 8-8-8-20-1
And I hope to get the Lightning to 1GHZ


I had to buy an aircooled card to save money on waterblocks:


And now to my screen because some people have claimed it has slow refresh rates.

It is the Sony Bravia Full HD 42" LCD which has normal refresh reates of 60hz
but my gtx 295 still struggled more when running Crysis on it than on my 24 inch.
Bu Crysis was also the only game where that was the case.

The refresh rate being at 60hz holds monitors back when your talking about fps as they start to tear after 60 fps. But what really holds back tvs in comparison to monitors is the pixel density and the slow response times of 10ms on average. Getting a 120hz 24in monitor will allow you to turn off vsync and let your graphics card scream all the time.

Thread Starter 

Would you mind checking out the response time of the Sony Bravia 42" Full HD before you say that?

The LCD has almost the same response time normal Monitors have.

But nontheless let´s concentrate on the GTX 580 Lightning

I will open a GTX 580 Lighting overclocking thread as soon as I get the card so all owners cann post their results and experiences with the card.

In this video I have heard the card has multiple switches.
For the core voltage , VRAM voltage, PWM voltage etc and an LN2 switch

03:08


I wonder how all those switches will aid my overclock
Seems like just increasing the voltage in Afterburner isn´t everything anymore.

Do you think the switches will have a great influence on overclocking?

A full hd plasma doesnt even look good when playing computer games on it and it has a native 600hz refresh rate and a 2ms response time..... I should know I played on it for a while lol. Not saying your tv isnt nice, they are just built for 2 completely different things and you if you think otherwise I suggest doing some research on lcd panel/plasma panel technology.

To Kung Pow:
1. It's the best single GPU solution on the market without the SLI/CF or dual GPU issues. Slide it into your PCIe and you can forget it's even there.
2. Drivers have improved with last two releases and the 580 is getting more love in the beta 275.60 drivers Nvidia is working on even improving it further. Last cards I owned were two AMD 6870's CF and I couldn't be happier on the move.
3. 3D vision without having to rely on third party software or hardware.
4. You can play all the current games maxed without any problems. Here is a great example of ONE GTX 580 playing Battlefield 3.
5. This last one is a personal reason. Nvidia owners don't go over to AMD threads and bash their cards to make themselves feel better about their purchase. We don't need to prove anything to anyone. I've sat and sit on the fence saying that both companies are great. No need to knock them down because others prefer it without real merit in what their posting.

I see you made your choice final from your bio details. Congrats! That Lightning series is a great card, but you knew that. You'll get a nice OC out of it.

I suggest you do some research yourself
The Sony Bravia 42" is a Full HD LCD Screen

It has the same response time as a normal monitor and even better refresh ratio.
It has a native mode for watching TV and a digital mode for faster frame buffering.
The rest is depending on the graphics card.
I have gamed on that screen for 1 year and out of my experience I can say I have never played on anything better


But back to my original question:
