EVGA gtx 580 470 after rebates so its only 40 bucks more and you get lifetime warranty and you can do aftermarket cooling. Also has the 90 step up program. to go through them is well worth the extra 40 bucks if you ask me.

thanks for the advice,

im torn... i dont want to pay the difference, but i would love to have a gtx 580, and have a single card that powerful.

i bought my older card around the end of the summer ( end of july, beginning of august) from amazon.com . i dont think i can return it and exchange now. however i did buy my other 6870 about at 10/3/2011 from newegg, so i can return that for a refund right?

@ratjack:

wait, why would i buy that if i can have a 3gb version for $430? im confused
i should probably state that the gtx 580 from my friend is still sealed in the box

most people dont really need 3GB of vram unless your unning multiple monitors or a huge resolution. so unless your running 3 monitors or a crazy resolution you will have no need for 3GB of vram.
