Help me Choose a GTX 570!!!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Since the MSI GTX 570 Twin Frozr III is unavailable on Newegg and Amazon, I was wondering what card people would recommend to replace it on my build. I have already purchased the Case, CPU, Board, and RAM, all of which are still in transit to my house. I now am trying to order the last of my build this Thursday. I'm cringing at spending the extra money on a GTX 580, especially since my eyes of set on the MSI Lightning Extreme Edition, which would bring the total build price to just over $2,200, especially since my initial spending limit was $1,500.

My parts already being shipped, and will be apart of this build are as follows:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131730

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115072

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231459

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119225

So, can someone recommend a different GTX 570 to get that is still very capable of being overclocked, and if it matters I do plan to SLI the card.

Also, if I were to stay up until 2 A.M. on this coming Thursday (My employers do direct deposit and that's when my money goes in) and I ordered my parts the minute my money was deposited, selected next day shipping and same day processing, do you think my parts would make it to me by Monday at the very least. My concern is I work 2 weeks on, 2 weeks off, and my job is 2000 miles away from my house, meaning I can't do the build until I come back.

Phew, that ended up being longer than I had expected, hope you guys didn't get a headache.

The Gigabye Windforce 570 seems to be a great competitor when it comes to aftermarket 570's. I like the Asus DirectCU II, but it's not something you can SLI.

asus 2 fan version

I dont know about vrm cooling on any of these, I do know msi twin frozr 3 has both beefed up vrm and good vrm cooling.

I guess just buy it from someone else for a little more money or one of these 3 alternatives

I understand the Twin Frozr 3 is the undisputed #1, but is there a general consensus on the #2 card?

I'd go for ASUS DCII version. I get stable idles of 34 when ambient is around 28-34.
However it can limit your options if you plan to go SLI.
