Again... 3*GTX580s 1.5 GB TRI-SLI or 2*6990 Quad fire for benching+gaming @1920x1200?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, it seems that my rig is finally getting near to be finished, and I still haven't decided about what cards to use, so I wanted to know if the standart 1.5gb versions of the 580 will be enough for some benching+gaming @ 1920x1200 with some good AA or should I go with quad cfx for this? I'd definetly go with nvidia 'cause of their great drivers and good ocing performance scaling, but the thing is that those 580s 'only have 1.5 GBs of vram', so I really dunno if that would suffice my whore AA needs because ATM I'll be just using one display, that why I also was considering the 6990s because of it's bigger vram size.
*also, I won't have any kind of cpu bottlenecking IMO since my 2600k will be at 5~5.2

Sorry if I was too long!, Thanks

btw, some mod please move this to general..

at 1600-1200 i would get 2 gtx580 3gb models as it will handle anything more that res to with the extra vram. then if you do go beyond your res you can add another gtx580 3gb.

I wish I could, but 580s 3gb cards cost like 1000 bucks each one here

you say it won't make any difference even if I use 8x-16x AA in 1920x1200?

check out this benchmark from hardwarecanucks The 3gb model shows little if any benefit in 95% of games and benchmarks. Even at 2560x1600 with AA the 1.5gb still outperforms it in most games and test

Awesome!!! Then 3 normal 580s it is!! would the quad-gpu config get kicked in the nuts by this nope?

I would say.. NONE of the choices are suitable for such low resolution. What a waste.

This. It would be beneficial if you did eyefinity or nvidia surround but at that standard resolution just one card would be fine. For now I would buy one 580 and wait on that one card until the new ones arrive around christmas then if you want to go overkill... go for it. Lol

I kind of agree with this, but for benching and the such, there's no such thing as too overkill. I'm guessing this system would be a benching system that you play games on, not a gaming system that you bench on.

also, it's true, this may sound a bit stupid but this is temporal ,I'll also bench as I'm telling you, but then I'll get some more monitors for gaming.. that's way I'm asking this
