GTX 580 1.5Gb SLI 5670 x 1080

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi, I am planning to play 5670 x 1080. and

I was wondering if I should SLI my current 1.5Gb card or sell it and get a 3Gb MSI lightning and then another 1 in the future.

Before I make my decision, do you guys think that 1.5Gb VRAM is enough for games like Battlefield BC2 on 4xMSAA at 5670x1080?

You should really get the 3gb version, 1.5gb is just not enough vram for that big of a resolution

Hmm, then would you recommend the Palit 3Gb or the MSI Lightning 3Gb? Is there really that much of a diffrence? Like gpu temps?

From everything I have read the MSI is much quieter and slightly better temps. Not a huge difference though if there is a big cost difference you don't want to pay.
