I just pulled the trigger on a asus 570 directcuII, gets here on tuesday.

A few people have already said it. There is always going to be something new coming out so if you need the upgrade you might as well just buy it right away.

a 570 is a great card anyways and should last a couple years. you can always SLI it if you need more juice and then in 2 years when kepler has been released and nvidia has fixed all of the bugs with it and what not you can pick up one of those.

I heavily recommend this card. Sexy power edition from MSI with that 6+2 flavor flavor mmmmm...

Also, guys who say Kepler is around the corner, is around the corner 6 months? Really guys? To me that's a. Very long time.

This.

6 months is not just around the corner, and for what? another 20% on top of a 580/570 even tho they both max almost everything at 1080p.

Buy and enjoy.

Minor correction, the MSI TFIII 570 PE is 6+1. Carry on though, still leagues above the reference EVGA.

EDIT: Fatality he can only fit a dual slot card according to the OP. and you meant 570 PE I think.

yah the msi 580 power edition is a nice card

the asus 570 DirectCU II also has the stronger VRMs (6+2) so you could consider getting that one as well if you don't mind the 3 slot cooler (which looks sick in any case btw )

EDIT: oh didn't see the part about not being able to fit a 3 slot cooler, nvm then thanks juano

ive played the waiting game one time too many, if you need it now, get it now!
570 is a great card for that budget.
Usualy my GPU budget is to stay under the 300, this why i went for the 6950 2Gb

I wouldn't say 'leagues'. On water or air reference still comes pretty close to what non-reference can do.

The highest reference on the Overclock Club hit 965Mhz and the highest Lightning on air hit 967Mhz.

The highest reference on water hit 985Mhz and the highest Lightning on water 1.15Ghz.

Yes it's higher but not leagues. Now it does run 20C cooler on average on air.

Reference serves it purpose with hot air exhaust being blown out the back air flow bracket as opposed to dumping it into the case. Cooler or not, heat dissipation isn't any difference, except for where it ends up.

Obviously, our opinions differ which is fine. On the 580 cards where there aren't any issues on reference, reference cards are just fine.

Yep, I have no problem recommending reference 580 when the situation calls for it, but I really just don't ever recommend the reference 570. When you can get the much better card for $5 more I see very few reasons why the reference should be considered, and fewer still why it should actually be chosen.

I'll agree - on the GTX 570, non-reference would be the safer route taken into consideration the issues it's had with power phases.

Your choice for OP would be a solid one.
