GTX 460 -> GTX 480 (or GTX570) - Page 3

post #21 of 23
okay well you presented it as if those were the only ones, those are in fact the exception to the rule, because standard 570s are 1.25Gb. And every 2.5Gb 570 I've seen would be a poor purchase to make in just about every situation.

How so what? How did you present them as if they were standard? By pretending that 1.25Gb 570s didn't exist. How are 2.5Gb 570s a bad choice? Because they are about as expensive as a 580, have crappy VRMs and just don't really fill a need in the market. People that think they need 2.5Gb usually would be better served by the much better all around card, the 580 1.5Gb, and people that do actually need 2.5Gb are usually in a position that cutting corners and getting crappy VRMs would be an incredibly foolish thing to do (if they have $1000+ worth of monitors, and are considering buying $800+ worth of GPUs then they ought to spend the extra $400 and get the much better cards in dual Lightning Extremes).
