Dissapointed.

post #1 of 64
Thread Starter 
Ok. Bought a GTX 570. EVGA SC. I can tell NO difference between it and my GTX 295. I guess I am blind. But not impressed. Played BFBC2, and WoW.

So, whats the deal? Am I blind? I am returning it tomorrow. Will put my money towards something else, Mobo, or liquid cooling, or mobo/2600k combo.

I don't know. Was expecting a night day difference. Same FPS, and couldn't tell a difference with the graphics. So based upon that, I am perfectly happy rocking my outdated technology.

Granted there may be certain games that take advantage of the better graphics, but none that I play.

Upgrading a video card doesn't really do anything to the "graphics". Graphics are all in the settings, it mainly just improves performance (unless of course you're speaking in terms of DirectX).

Also, if all you really play is WoW and BC2 and they're both running at optimal performance, why upgrade anyway?
post #3 of 64
Well World of warcraft sucks because it doesnt really use GPU power at its max. I noticed an increase of 10fps in wow going from single gtx470 to sli when in games like Dirt3, crysis 2 it was like 40 to 50fps easy. So unless you play high demanding games then u might not need a new video card.

That's not a surprise, those cards have just about identical performance. Most people could have told you that before you bought had you asked.

Or you could get a second 570, and SLI that beast.

What you ARE getting is lower electricity costs and DX11

I was speaking in terms of Direct X 11. I made a thread asking about the differences. I also watched several videos.

Because I had money and we all like to have new badass stuff.

Most people told me I would notice a difference going between DX10 to DX11. I couldn't see it. Not in the games I play. Hell I was going to buy a GTX580....but I will just return this and put the money towards Sandy Bridge or liquid cooling or a SSD or something.

My mobo doesn't support SLI.

Eh, electricity costs don't bother me. I live in Texas and its 108 outside. My A/c runs 24/7. LOL

And I was buying it for the DX11...just saw no improvement....

I was kinda sad.

Well, you have to play games that have DX11. BFBC2 runs on DX10, and I have no clue what WoW runs on (guessing DX9).

And when you start turning on DX11 features, OH EMM GEE. Tessslatioo....n

Well I'm sorry for the less than stellar advice you received here, for people to recommend you upgrade to a card with nigh identical performance just for DX11 they should have made damn sure that you would have gotten the most out of DX11 before recommending that you spend $320+ on that alone.
