So i was not only pissed,but also realised,i freakin dont need a 800$ video card on a single screen @1680x1050 lol.

So maybe i will buy some watercooling stuff....but this is even more chineese for me lol
(no racial dissrespect here),i love everyone lolll

Personally, I'd go with a 570gtx or 580gtx (you don't need a crazy amount of VRAM for 1680) due to:
1) Heating concerns on 470 SLI.
2) Single cards don't always encounter the issues that SLI/Xfire setups do.
3) SLI-able if you want if it's necessary.

Honestly, ya've got $700 budget: you can't really go wrong, you'll be maxing whatever you throw it at.

ps: Your PSU will be fine for either of the cards; it'll handle 570 SLI additionally, but G3D casts aspersions on the ability to do 580 SLI on full load. *shrug* Something to consider...but by the time you need another 580, you might as well upgrade to Kepler ;p

look at my first post in this topic,ive put up two cards..with link

tell me which one would suit me best in your oppinion.

ill never use more then 1080p
and ony 1 monitor at a time.
mainly 1680x1050,sine i think its better looking then 1080p on a 42 inch.
and here is my temperature:

THRM 29,0 c
cpu 29,0 c
Vreg 62,0 c
System 27,0 c
are they normal for an i7 920?

Im asking because u seem worried about my temp.
Matt
thx




(I personally like the 570 classified at 822 Mhz or sumthin like that)

Sure thing! Sorry, I mentioned temperature because you were considering SLI'ing 470's, which can get hot and I'm not sure about your case layout. The temps you posted look great, though I don't know much about Bloomfield (I came from Barton before SB)...I wouldn't worry about those temps, especially if you get a single card.

Though we haven't been able to get our hands on BF3 yet, I think a 570 GTX will serve you fine. It runs most of my games maxed at 1920x1080. If you can spend your entire budget, spend it on a 580 (better that than food or presents or something)...but a 570 will do just fine on BF3 if you want to save a bit. It's a sweet card [though I wouldn't try overvolting too much on the reference cards...]

Ultimately, up to how much $$ you want to spend. Either card will run games excellently .

Like I said. Go with a 560ti. Two 470s in SLI will be like putting a hair dryer in your computer case. Not only will an overclocked 560ti (like the one I posted earlier) be as fast as a 470, it is much less power hungry and not as hot.

Like I said, the 460 is 85% the performance of the 560ti for 60% of the cost.

I would go for the 580... Single card will always be easier to manage. If you ever decide to go full time on your tv or get a higher resolution monitor you can. Your CPU shouldn't bottle neck any of those cards but it probably wouldn't hurt to put a small OC on your CPU.

ya,ill Oc my cpu to something like 3.4 or 3.8.
I have an (ok) ventillation i assume with my thermalright xtreme 1366.

Thank you all for your time,i really appreciate.
You guys all know better than me what you're all talking about.
So every tips you gave me,is really appreciate.
Thanks again.

I will think about it and look at some test on the internet to compare some specs here and there,and illl order te card later on today....when im fully decided.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------

The last thing on my mind is,
I am 99% sure a single gtx 560 ti would be just fine for now.
But im not planning on changing card(vid. card) every 3 or 6 month.
I want a video card that will play recent game at around 60 FPS,
But i also want that card to still be up-to-date in 3 to 6 month.
I would prefer to buy a gtx 570 or gtx 580 now........
And in the worst case scenario buy another gtx 570 or 580 later on to SLI them if they fail in late 2011 game.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

If i dont want to change my video card so quick and fast.....and maybe just update it later,i guess i should go with an gtx 5** serie,and maybe above the 560 ti.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Buying video card right now is also a little scary since everything change so radically fast.

Anywayz,...please go on with your oppinion
Thx
Matt

Yes,i know Juano,and i really appreciate your tips.
im pretty sure two 460 would be more then enough.
But since im so noob in computers,and that the temperature would increase dramatically,maybe the SLI thing isnt the best for a non-hardcore gamer.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sorry for posting a lot lately.
I've re-edited this post because it's now time for me to ORDER my near future Video Card.
It's probably one of my last post here on this topic,
Since i will buy the card today.
But...
Don't be shy to judge my choice and say what u really think,...
And not what i want to HEAR.
I made 3-4 different choice,with differents price,butt all in the same range...
Tell me what would bring the most framerate and the best gaming experience in your oppinion.

these are the final choice!!!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

1- http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16814130616

GTX 470 in SLI(2 x gtx 470) for 369$ CDN
(Which is pretty awesome price for 1280 vram and 480 processor core,specially x 2 in SLI)
SPECS:
Core Clock:607 Mhz
Shader Clock:1215Mhz
Stream Processors:448 core
Effective memory:3348Mhz
1280 memoryGDDR5

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2- http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16814125363

GTX 560 Ti in SLI(2 x GTX 560Ti)manufactured OC'd,with two fans each for 469$
But they have only a 256-bit infrastructure,and have less VRAM.
But they are serie 5** GPU.
SPECS:
Core Clock:900MHZ (which is insane)
Shader Clock:1800 Mhz
Stream Processors:384 Core
1GB memory
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3- http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16814130692

GTX 570 SCC Classified.Newest card or so...,from the serie 5**
Would only buy a single one for now.
359$ CDN

SPECS:
cORE cLOCK: 822mHZ
Shader Clock:1645Mhz
Stream Processors:480 core
Memory Clock:3902Mhz
1280Gb ddr5

Personally,i freakin like that card,it has a full HDMI port,but dont use the crappy HD Version Fans.
Its clock freakin high...
and the price is right for a new item.
I really think i can't go wrong with this one.But probably the two SLI set-up above kills it...

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

4- http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16814130590

GTX 580 SuperClocked.My ultimate Solution for BF3.
479$,but 20$MIR
Would run everything smooth,while not overheating everything like SLI do.
Would probably be more stable in certains game then SLI ive heard???

------------------------------------------------------------------------------


So this is it,now is the time for me to spend money because my old gtx 260 core 216 is crap nowadayz.
The rest of my computer is still up to date,...but the graphics really needed improvement.
I dont want the best,since i wont always play in 1080p,but i dont want to feel the need to change it again in 4-5 month because its always under 50 FPS with anti-aliasing and etc..


Please,Please !!!Help me ...only got some hours left behind me.
thx Matt

Im really thinking of the 560 ti in SLI after many reads...
Since it seem to be the perfect gaming rig for me.
3dGuru found out that more than gtx 560 ti SLI for my computer would bottleneck anywayz....

what do u think about that??is this the best choice in money/performance....for the current CPU we have?well...that i have at least.
