GTX 560 Ti SLI vs single GTX 580? - Page 3

They cost like $60 more though. At the extra cost for both cards I would go with a GTX 580 1.5GB for sure.

I would go with a single 580. Runs cooler (depending on the non-ref cooler), and has a great upgrade path awaiting you and no driver issues that plagues SLI configs.

But, I would also seriously consider a 6970, cheaper than the 580, has 2Gb Vram(more relevant nowadays), has Eyefinity. Yes, it has 570 horsepower but it matches the 580 at times and loses by a few FPS. But, it's CFX scaling matches/beats 580 SLI scaling at several occasions.

6970 : A 2Gb GTX 570 with AMD drivers w/ CFX scaling that matches/beats 580 SLI.

The choice is yours tho. For 1080p, I would go 580 for Nvidia.

I would say 580 unless you can only afford a 560ti for now and considering sli later down the road
If you have the cash though go for the beast!!!

I may be misinterpreting this post, but 560 Tis in SLI don't require any OC to outperform a stock 580 handily.

http://www.guru3d.com/article/geforce-gtx-560-ti-sli-review/1

^In some of the benches there the 560s score up to 40% higher, stock.

For reference, SLI 460s trade blows with a 580 @stock and 560 Tis are ~25-30% faster (also at stock).

IMO SLI 2GB Twin Frozr 560 Tis, or Gainward Phantoms if you can get them (I'm jelly Ishi) are a very compelling buy. The prices on the MSIs are a little high atm though, so I'd probably wait for a sale or something.

I was asking myself the same question before I bought my computer.
I went with the two 560 Ti's and my friend with a single 580.
Haven't been any game that he runs faster than my setup.(Few FPS faster in GTA IV but irrelevant.)
My setup is exactly the same as his and it's notably faster in everything GPU related. Not talking about 5-10FPS more like the different between playable and not(METRO 2033).

But yeah, the problem with Vram. Come across it myself in battlefield 3. Could be "fixed" in the final release but what can you do other than lowering AA. smile.gif Other than that I haven't come by any Vram issues in any other game.(Except modded GTA IV.)

So i'd say wait for AMD 79xx. tongue.gif


Edit: Forgot to mention that everything I wrote earlier are at stock clocks. Overclocked they munch everything spit it out and eat it again then have small cards inside it eating it up also.

Cons - no upgrade path in the future, SLI is not 100% supported in all games, takes up 4-6 slots in your cpu


580:
Pros - better performance after OC, upgrade path in future for SLI, single fastest card out right now, uses less watts
Cons - Costs a little more (not by much)

Go with the 580.
