P5947 – EVGA GeForce GTX 580 SC
P4887 – MSI R5770 Hawk 2-way CrossFire

a good 20% improvement?

580 overclocks very well and you can get it to score P7000+ on reference cooling

I got P6861 with 900MHz on a single card and P12,169 in SLI @ 900MHz

Which model of Gigabyte 580 do you have? The one with 3 fans? The Windforce x3? Or a reference model with a centrifugal fan?

With that small of an increase in stock clocks I wouldn't expect more than 1.5FPS difference in games compared to stock.

Take the card to 900 and feel the difference!

They will most likely hit 900MHz as mine did which is relatively good for reference cooled cards. Make sure to go into Afterburner and create a custom fan profile for yourself.

If you go to settings/ fan/ and move the squares to intersecting points such as 50C/50%, 85C/85%, and 100C/100% you should not see temps that are too alarming.

As a single card it never saw above 75*C during benchmarks. Ran nice and cool.

Even better then!

The reference cooling on these cards is more than capable of handling the cards at stock clocks, which mine are when in SLI and not benchmarking.

How are your ambient room temps there in Australia?

My GTX 570 is completely reference, with stock clocks. No factory overclocks, however I have overclocked/overvolted to 890 core 1.1v
