2 graphics cards? - Page 3

post #21 of 51
gtx 580 is available for $490+ u dont need 600$ for it....
and ya its better than gtx 570....
as u said ur self...u r noob(new to stuff)....so u should take the most powerfull single card in the market....
or if u can spend 100-150$ above ur 600$ budget then taking 2x gtx 570 or 2x hd6970 makes sense.....

You could make a very nice watercooled build for 2k with a very good single card like a GTX 580 and that would max any game on any single monitor resolution except for badly optimized ones.
really? Wow.. well I dont know what other parts to buy yet so I thought I would ask about the 2 graphics cards and see if I could start there with my build... Can u liquid cool the gtx580s?

My single GTX 570 maxes out anything at 1080p and a radeon hd 6970 is just as powerful. A GTX 580 is roughly 15% more powerful than the cards. You decide if it's worth it.

Pretty much anything can be watercooled on a PC! Even Hard Drives But I doubt you will manage to watercool 580s while staying under 3000$ without sacrificing on the rest. Your best bet are crossfired 6970s if you really wan't that but a single GTX 580 or 6970 would probably be more than enough especially with a single monitor.

of course 2gtx 570's will be better than single gtx 580....to give u a jist...
2 gtx 460's almost equal a gtx 580 in performance....so 2 gtx 570's would commpletely dethrone a single gtx 580 and by a large margin....

So if I'm liquid cooling would it be smarter to just buy one GTX 580 and liquid cool it and overclock it?

Depending on what games you play...I dont think you would need 2 580's. Im quite sure 2 560ti's would do it.
