Temp GFX card choice.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So Im building a new pc.

i5 2500K
Gigabyte G1 Sniper 2
Corsair AX850

Now I want to get a temp card that I can resell and will get me by for running BF3.

What im planning on doing is selling the cpu and gpu when ivy bridge and nvidia 670/680/690 series cards are out.

I prefer to have 1 single card, as im worried about the whole micro stutter that you can get with SLI.

Should I just get a MSI GeForce GTX 560 Ti Hawk 1GB
Or look at a 570?

if you can find a 570 for the price of the hawk id go with it. look around on amazon, specially if it has "this many, new: from $$$$" alot of times amazons lists a higher price, when amazon has one for much cheaper and free shipping. saw a few going last week for around $270. same goes for the 6970/6950s, they had a msi 6950 twin frozr III PE/OC for $280(which TFIII PE/OC mite as well just say 'lightning')

another thing is that the 570s scale very well is sli, so if in a month you decide youd like to give that a shot(kepler mite get delayed) you can always pick one up for pretty cheap(specially with black friday coming up)
