I would take Sparkle, Galaxy and then Zotac in this order for the GTX570.

GTX560 Ti is also a good alternative, especially if you plan to SLI later.
I recommend this Gigabyte GTX560 Ti for its high factory pre-overclocking, its price (US$220) and its better cooling design.

An over clocked GTX 570 @ 890Mhz core can match stock 580 graphics performance scores @ 797Mhz core clock. Shy some cuda cores.

A 580 however is an over clock beast.

Out of your three suggestions I'd go Zotac. Preference is all relative to one's opinion or expierience with said vendor and will vary.

The problem with the zotac is its amp version. It's factory oc'ed and in my experience, those don't oc well... not sure if I'm right though...

I'm not sure what gives you that idea? They overclock fine for me. Can't go wrong with a $335.49 price tag for a GTX 580.

Well, there used to be a day that factory over clocked cards had better binned ram. Cherry picked so the vendor can factory over clock it and be able to asure themselves it would run under warranty.

On the flip side, it's also for those less computer savvy to buy it already over clocked, pay a bit more, and get a bit more juice. Those of us on OCN know better and can over clock it ourselves.

Also not ALL VRAM is binned, meaning that even the vanilla cards can have just as good as VRAM as the OC cards do.

Another caveat is not all OC cards anyway mean it's going to over clock any better than it's factory OC. So even though it may have been binned it was only tested for it's factory OC anyway.

So it's a luck of the draw no matter which way you go. AMP or not. No way of knowing with either factory OC or vanilla cards what you going to get. VRAM is like a box of chocloates.......(finish with Forrest Gump).

I honestly don't want to spend on a powersupply atm. Once I go Gtx 580, I have to get a new psu.

It's $70 more than the 3 I posted. If I do add that money, I rather go for a Gtx 580...

Yep, this is what I was thinking...
