Then grab a GTX 560 Ti / HD 6950. GTX 580 just for 1680x1050 is pointless.

Yes, i will definitely be upgrading my screen to atleast 1900x1080 when I have enough money, but I want to buy my GPU's first indeed. (=

Correct me if I am wrong, but so far this is the major opinion:
no OC - any cheap brand
OC - MSI lightning ftw
SLI - any cheap brand aswell
OC SLI - MSI lightning aswell

Considerign the prices of the MSI lightning (over 80€ than a cheap brand like Inno or Gainward), I think I will get a cheap reference. Or is the OC-improvement worth the extra 80-100 €?

Thx so far for all the answer, repping the ones that helped me out ofc

its worth it if u r going to overclock them aggressively...the advantage of lightning is that it has out of the box much better cooling system...and much improved power delivery circuit...n can handle harsh overclocks too without going down.....

its not as if u can't overclock the cheap ones but its easier and safer to do so with lightning.......

1) So if I am not going to overclock, I should be good with a cheap one?
2) Can I get ALOT of advantage while OCing GPUs? So much that it would be worth the 100€?
3) I just looked at the GTX 460, it looks kind of similar to the 580 only that it has a ~70MHz lower clock and costs about 280€. Does the ~70MHz make a big difference. (Partly same question in 2)-)

Even if you dont overclock a Lightning (its a waste not to overclock it though ) it going to run silent stock and a hefty OC over the reference cards 832MHz vs 772Mhz.

GTX 460 doesnt compare to the 580. Dont compare card by clocks.

sorry did not get ur 3rd questions so will answer the rest 2 questions

1) yes without oc u will be gud with any stock/cheaper one(but i do recommend ocing as it can bring free improvements in fps)...although spending euro 80-100 for premium overclocking or not is a personal choice(some gamers would sell there body part to get cards like lightning n some prefer getting cheaper cards then ocing as much as they can on them)..

if money is not a problem for u then stick with the lightning..or else u can take cheaper one to and it will overclock also but not as much as lightning and also not as easy as lightning......

2)the advantage in fps is many times game dependent...sometimes a game can gain 10-20 fps with ocing and some other game might just get 1-2 fps increase.....

hope u got ur answers......

How should I compare them then, if you could explain me? I just want to be a bit more savy about the cards.

mostly gfx cards performance is measured by the no. of shaders they have...but even by this theory u can't compare ati and nvidia...this applies for nvidia vs nvidia and ati vs ati...and not ati vs nvidia....

and if the cards shaders r same in no. then we see the clock speed of the cards..whichever has higher clock speed performs better......
