I've come back to the GREEN TEAM!

That's right, I have bought myself a GTX 580 and am loving it so far. No buggy drivers, and no weird graphical errors. Just smooth sailing.

sold my 5870 and got a 470 along with the vf3000. Even though the 5870's are slightly faster i ended up with money leftover after spending it on both the 470 and vf3000 and got the benefit of better drivers

Well welcome back Danman I do agree with you on the GTX 580 being a card to love. It's the best card I've ever owned.

Latest 270.61 driver improved the GTX 580 and the next beta 275.27 has even more improvements yet again on performance, 3D support, SLI and scaling. It's maturing to be an awesome card as Nvidia moves forward with Fermi.

Happy gaming!

I really am stuck on this one

I can either go with 2x Visiontek 5870 for $100 each (RMA from the TD refurb 4870x2)

or the MSI gtx 580 Lightning I got from Amazon for $300

which way should I go?

Well the two AMD 4870's = one AMD 5870 which is comparable to one AMD 6870.

If you can get a 580 Lightning for $300 it's best performance and price per performance all rolled into one. Pull that trigger before it's gone. Easy choice for the extra $100 and playing maxed settings with AA turned up as opposed to maxed settings AA off.

^^^^ This. I'm hoping in the near future to get another 580 and sli these beasts. But kind of an off topic question... you think that a 580 will run BF3?

This is essentially why I stuck with Nvidia, I owned the literal first/original Radeon with DDR1 but that was the last one I ever owned.

I never actually went after Nvidia cards, I simply ended up using Nvidia cards for most of my gaming on pc's as they were what was available to me, except for the aforementioned original Radeon card I owned.

ATI/AMD cards are fine, but I just prefer Nvidia's driver setup.

Since your the OP ok to be OFF Topic: Do I think one GTX 580 can run Battlefield 3? Well this followiing video of BF 3 is being run on one GTX 580....take a look. This is what you will be able to do with it.


Pure awesomeness, don't need to SLI it either.

Back on track moving foward.
