post #11 of 27
I first went from an ATI 4850, to a gtx 295, then to a gtx 580... Loved it so much I got two...

Guru3D review of 560Ti SLI

I can't see the images on my iPhone, but I'm pretty sure the minimum FPS is greater or equal to that of a single 580.

EDIT: Also 560Ti's are great clockers, and scale well with overclocking.
That review only shows average fps. That's great that you don't notice microstutter, but others aren't so lucky.

If you're not in any sort of hurry, just get the cheapest used card you can now that will play your games at good levels, save your money, and hold out for next gen. They're rumored to be much more powerful than this gen and they're coming soon. Otherwise, I say go with the 560ti sli ... but that's just me, I know a lot of people prefer single card solutions.

Appologies... I was unaware that it was only average.

Off-topic: I envy the amount of 2500k's you have! Any high multi ones?

OT: OP, I get an average of 40-45fps at 6060x1080 in BC2, mostly high settings and 4xMSAA (I have 2gb 560ti's, so VRAM isn't an issue) with HBAO on (is about a 15FPS hit with it on). So you will annihilate 1080p :-P

I'd def recommend the 580 now, will/should play everything max depending on resolution and u can go sli when they drop in price....or if u want something to hold u over till kepler the 580 will still be a great card to have!!

The 560s are definitely more powerful, but they are a bit limited in some applications due to the smaller amount of VRAM (if you don't get the 2GB). While the 560s are also cheaper by a good margin, you have the (sometimes) worries of SLi with them.
I would think that the 580 would have a better resale value and it would have a better upgrade path.

It really just depends upon how much you want to spend and how soon you want to upgrade.
Yep. If you want the most performance you can get now, go for the SLI 560 Tis. If you want more open ended expansion options in the future, go for the 580.

In your shoes, I'd just grab a couple of 560 Ti Hawks and call it a day. TF3s are some of the best air coolers on the market, and with the healthy 950 core factory clocks they sport (along with 8+1 power phases) you'll have a beastly 1080p setup.

For the record, I haven't had any issues with micro stuttering or SLI compatibility. It's not nearly as prevalent as some would have you believe.

Yeah I had 470s sli which is somewhat equal to 560 ti sli. Just picked up a 580 and its all over my 470s I had. cant wait to get another one in a week.

Just bought a evga gtx 580 3gb. Planning on sli when prices drop. Using a single 27" at 1080p at the moment, but I'm buying 2 asus vw246h monitors sometime in the future to go with the other one I have.

Thanks for everyones input, though deep down I think i was just going to go with the 580 all along.

Very nice choice especially if your thinking of SLI and Surround.
