MSI GTX 570 TF3 or GTX 580 Lightning

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am going to be buying a new graphic card soon. I am going to be using a 27" monitor 1080P. Should i get the MSI GTX 570 Twin Frozr III or the MSI GTX 580 Lightning? Thanks!

Both cards should work just fine . i would go for the MSI GTX 570 Twin Frozr III 1)is cheaper and 2)with some easy overlock you can get it as fast as stock 580 maybe a little more anyway you will be just fine even you let it without oc.

I say get the 570 and save yourself the ~$130 bucks. You don't need the extra performance at 1080p. My GTX 570 breezes through every game I can throw at it. The TF3 is a great overclocker as well. Ask yourself if its worth it to spend the extra money for a few more FPS.
