Help needed, GTX 580 or GTX 570 - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Thread Starter 
Thanks a lot guys for all the useful information, I did research a little bit more on GTX 580 and it does stay quite cool the zotac amp version.

The reason I am going with Zotac is because, GTX 570 FROZ III is for $349.99 on amazon, and I am getting the GTX 580 amp for $380.00 so for $30 more, I think its sort of a no brainer?

I will be upgrading to a bigger monitor soon so that should push the card further!

Thanks erik257 and Arizonian for the PSU suggestions, I am thinking of a 1000w supply at the least to be future proof!

Again, cant thank you guys enough for all your help, going to bejoining the pc gamer rank quite soon

The zotac amp you looked up that was said to run quite cool was most likely the custom triple slot cooler version of the zotac amp which is not what you linked us to. The card you linked to is a reference 580 which should perform identically to this review. It will be a little hotter and louder than the MSI TFIII 570 but I personally would still get the 580, the reason is imply that you said you were not planning on overclocking. With the MSI you are paying for some overclocking features such as extra VRMs and Mil spec components that would be unnecessary for your needs. That is not even taking into account the fact that the 580 is the faster card in every regard, and is a good value at only $50 more than the MSI 570. So I would go with the 580 unless you want to sacrifice the performance to get a quieter card in the MSI, but like I said the MSI is geared for overclockers so you wouldn't be getting the most that you could out of it.

Also I would ask your PSU question in the PSU section, you will find that they will recommend a good quality 850w rather than a decent quality 1000w every time. A 1000w should only be necessary if you plan on having 3 GPUs, other than that a quality 850w should be all you need but ask the PSU section.

Thanks Juano! My bad on the wrong link, the actual card I am getting is this:

http://www.zotacusa.com/amp-geforce-...50202-10p.html

Its over clocked to 815 mhz unless I am reading it wrong and dual slot fans.

I am actually now looking at a 850w supply!

That is still the same design I was talking about, so the link to the review I posted above still applies. If I recall correctly there is also a zotac amp that has the zalman cooler on it which is a triple slot card that has two fans. Any card that looks just like the card you posted or the one pictured in the review I linked with a different sticker will be reference design and the review I posted will apply to. I would recommend making a thread in the PSU section asking for recommendations or atleast looking at this list of recommended PSUs. In addition to that I can tell you that either the Corsair AX850 or the Seasonic X850 would be excellent choices for you.

Can you link where you can get that for $380 or is that a typo?

The Amp version is only a tiny overclock, personally wouldn't pay much more than 10 bucks more over a stock version, not to mention you'll probably end up clocking it up manually anyway, nearly any 580 can do 850+ core very easily.

I got it from a friend barely used for a month Its working wonderful just fired it up about 2 hours ago. Installed the Corsair Tx850 its super quiet. GTX 580 idles at 45 and games at 77. havent even overclocked as my monitor only supports 1920x1080 and its been playing everything on full that I am throwing at it so extremely pleased!
