Need advice for best GTX580 3GB card.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
What is currently the most full-fledged GTX580 card on the market that has 3072MB of VRAM. My system is not water-cooled, so EVGA Hydrocopper's are not an option.

As of right now, I have my sights set on the MSI N580GTX Lightning Xtreme, but I am open to other options. Thanks in advance.

MSI 580 Lightning Xtreme is currently the best non reference card - they typically overclock higher than most cards (although 580's in general overclock very well, 900+)

Awesome, my decision has been made easy then, seeing as they just went on sale for $579.99 w/ free shipping on Newegg Canada.
