OMG...i need quick replies !!! Thanks.

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I understand there are numerous thread regarding about gtx 570 vs gtx 580. The reason why I asked is because I have two friends who are selling these two for really good price.

One is selling gtx 570 for $280 brand new MSI Frozen III and one is selling me GTX 580 3GB EVGA version for $450 brand new. The different is $170. I'm torn between these two cards because for that much extra, the gtx 580 has more power + 3gb of memory. Idk if it's worth it ?

I have cash for gtx 580, but don't want to waste if I can save it ...

I mainly used for game and I feel that my HD5770 (ancient !) cannot deliver good setting on demanding games.

I need to answer them by 6pm tonight before they post those online for sale.

My specs are :

i7 920 @ 4ghz.
Ultra LSP 750W PSU
Asus P6t motherboard
OCZ 6gb ram.

I will mainly use 1920 x 1080 at 24" for now, but I will get hooked up for U2711 for $680 vs U3011 for $980... do you think I should pull the trigger ?

Thanks for all the help. I truly appreciate it.

Gaming at the U2711/U3011's full resolution takes a lot of graphical horsepower... I'd say the 580 would certainly be preferable.

It depends on your budget. If you can afford the 580 and are eventually gonna get one of those ultrasharpe monitors then without a doubt 580. But if your looking to save some money then just get the 570 and it will run great with the specs you listed especially if its only at 1080p.

Both are going to be a good upgrade from a 5770, if you have the money go for the GTX 580, if not the 570 will do just fine.

No, 750W is plenty.
It's even enough for an SLI, though you shouldn't expect your PSU to sustain a lot of overclocking.

Oops, I forget. I will definitely over clock this gtx 580 card. So, even that it's still ok for a single card right ?
