Which GPU should i get?? - Page 3

post #21 of 30
I would recommend the GTX 580, that way you get the best details and frame rates and an awesome upgrade path for the future.

One GTX 560Ti now means when it comes time to upgrade your going to have one of two options: (I'm guessing)

1. A new 660Ti or AMD 7950 - you'll only get about 15-25% performance because that's how much performance gains new gen cards bring approximately. Not much of an upgrade.

2. Another GTX 560Ti will give you way more performance boost. Pricing on it will be lower as well. It will be your most logical upgrade for highest performance gain for less.

Unless you blow even more money for a 7970 or 680.

Once anyone is vested in one good mid-level to high end card (within one year) the most logical solution for most bang for your buck if price/performance is important to you would be get another and crossfire or SLI it.

So basically if your in a 6950/560Ti or higher series card now your best option is to get another and your next upgrade will be one year later.

Those who are still sporting 5000 or 400 series cards will be ready for a next gen card and would make more sense.

Natrually there are those that money is no object and having the best single or dual cards every year is more important.

My choice is going to be spend $500 for one GTX 680 or spend less (price drops) for another GTX 580 and have way more performance boost.

Unless intentions of handing down this card to my kids and buying a next gen cards.

I'm going to wait and see because next gen cards with smaller shrink die (I have a feeling) we won't be able to put as many volts through it as current and will be less over clockable.

OH really now ? I'ma guess then you don't have the GeneZ board because you most certainly CAN ... SLI /or X-Fire ... heck we even have guys TRI-FIRE and QUAD-Fired on our little MaxIVGeneZ ... don't under estimate it because it's a mATX, it CAN do anything the big boys can, you just have to get creative

Yeap i dont see any problems going sli I just going to install one fan under the drive bay and 4 fans on the side panel and I should be more than fine. But for now one 580 should be enough.

So this is my new pc and I am looking for a gpu , i am currently running on 2600k integrated graphics. I want to buy a gpu so i can be able to play games like bf3, crysis 2 , microsoft flight, gta etc at decent graphics at 1080. So should i buy something cheap like a 560ti or should i spend a bit more and get a 570. If i get a 570 is it going to last for a couple of years of gaming? I am very confused what should i do?
If you plan on playing BF3 maxed out, I suggest you read the reviews from Tom's and Techspot posted today....The AMD cards are rendered unplayable with 4xMSAA enabled, while the Nvidia cards still offer very playable FPS...
