Is the 2560mb 570 better? - Page 3

post #21 of 38
My concern is spending 700 dollars on a GPU setup that is already maxed out due to ram limitations.

This is a bad habit. Stop it. Games are using more and more VRAM these days. Heck, last night played BF3 on his gtx 580. Over 1500 MB of vram was used @ 1080p.

I have 1.28GB 570s and can play Crysis 2 @ ultra @ 1080p flawlessly. So even though Crysis 2 apparently uses 1.5GB of Vram, it doesn't mean it will affect your gameplay.

And? Did the performance take a nose-dive?

Didn't think so.

There we go.

At 160$ per GPU, it's more like half that.

And why don't you just buy another 4GB set? They're around 20$ these days.

Well your other options would be dual 560ti 2Gbs, those would be more balanced in terms of power to VRAM, but are less powerful. Or a single 580 which has more VRAM and isn't terribly balanced in terms of VRAM to power but would be if you went SLI with only 1.5GB.

There is AMD to consider but I would recommend a 2gb 560ti in SLI over them, as I'm no fan of their weak tessellation. Past that when considering SLI 570s you just need to realize that you will have more processing power than VRAM, that's almost the point of adding the second one, because a single plays most everything smooth enough as is at max but the benefit of the second is to get more crazy FPS at the same detail levels rather than to "future proof". So it's to go from ~40 FPS at max detail to ~70 FPS at max detail rather than to maintain that ~40 FPS in more detailed and VRAM requiring games of the next few years. If you want your GPUs to be playing games at high details for years the only option right now is SLI Lightning Xs.

160 per GPU?? EVGA 570 Superclock is more like 350. And I"m talking about vram limitations, sorry for the confusion.

I'm not terribly concerned about "future proof", gave up on that idea long time ago. I just don't want to spend a small fortune on GPU's and find out they can't play Bf3 Ultra 1080p because i'm short a few megs of vram (which is what happened to me with my 460)

On eBay, the GTX 560 Ti can be had for as low as 160$.
I personally got my HD 6950 for 180$ and my GTX 480 for 220$.
And they have just as much resale value as new ones.

Yes, I understand that that is your concern, but as a few people have told you:

A.) 1250MB of vRAM will run any game perfectly well at 1080p.
B.) The difference between the GTX 570 and GTX 580 is 250MB of vRAM.. that's not something that's going to make a difference.

Just keep the AA under 8x and you'll be fine.

*256Mb, and 256Mb of VRAM can make a difference but it's not required for what he wants to do. Jarobata it's too bad that whoever told you that 768Mb 460s would be a good idea for BF3 did so, but they were mistaken. Here you can see plenty of more experienced people all pretty close to agreement that 1.25Gb is an appropriate amount for your needs/wants and resolution, and actually I'm pretty sure you're about to get a few more telling you the same in Balla and Booty.

Haha no nobody told me that. I bought my 460 a year or so ago and didn't realize the difference between the 768 and the 1024 was significant. I didn't want a repeat performance on this upgrade.

Thanks for the help guys.

Balla and Booty?

Two members who were in here when I posted that and I figured they would post, but I guess not. They woulda just agreed with me though so no worries.
