So my 560Ti just died.. - Page 5

post #41 of 46
I don't know about the noise part, my Lightning isn't exactly LOUD but it certainly isn't quiet, and 560tis are supposed to be really quiet. As I mentioned before if you are going triple monitor YOU DO NOT WANT LESS THAN 2GB VRAM, so if the Lightning is tempting you then get the 3Gb Extreme without a doubt. If you can resist the bling or appeal or whatever of the Lightning, the 6950s would be a very capable setup that would be very well balanced in all regards for triple resolutions.

Did your 560Ti die from OCing? What voltages and clocks were you running?

Source?
The 580 kills the 6970 at 2560x1200 which is the highest resolution that both of them can run in single.

The 6990+6970 vs TriSLI 580's was a case of CPU bottlenecking, they redone the test with a new Sandybridge rig and the 580's come out ontop, which is understandable for the extra cash you need to outlay for it...

OP, they're are 2gb versions of the 560Ti, im not sure where you originate from but there are a few around, Palit or Gainward have the 2gb versions.
If you would be looking to SLI 580's, then the 3gb version from EVGA, Gainward, MSI Lightning Extreme or Palit would be the option i would suggest as 1.5gb of VRAM is still a limitation in some instances
SLI 560ti 2gb cards cost the same as a single 580 3gb card, so for a bang for buck solution this would be an option (i've chosen this option)

On the other hand you have a single 6970 which can run 3x monitors by itself, which is very nice in itself, but this is a loud card, and people complain of ATI drivers being a pain *shrug*

I've suggested Nvidia as i have done more research in that regard and i like a cool/quiet running card, good tesselation and 3d support, plus they have made a name for themselves in driver support, so yeah...

Hope i have contributed to you making an informed decision.

Cheers,

Ishi

Well anything and everything points towards getting the 6950/6970 with regards to multi monitor use.

After going through countless reviews though I'm starting to want to focus on getting the best card for my current resolution(1920*1080) and worrying about multi monitors later seeing as there's a chance I won't even be going for more than a single monitor for gaming.

I'm very much tempted by the GTX580 Lightning atm, looks like an absolute beast of a card that should keep me happy for quite a while.
If the price is too high(will need to get it specially ordered for me through a mate of mine) I might settle for the 570 TWFR III.

Sorry for the bump madness.

I can get the 560GTX PE for ~130$ or the 580GTX LE for ~430$

Obviously I've got lots more vram in the 580, but I think that for my current setup atm, the 570 PE is a lot better choice considering the price.
