is 580 worth the cost over 570 for bf3 - Page 3

post #21 of 29
Just like if you ask if a 2600k is worth it over a 2500k, everyone with a 2500k will say no. and vise versa!

Truth is ,there is a perfomance difference for sure. How much ? That depends on the game , and your rig . Some games it will be less than 10 fps , some game much more. the difference between the two is big in some settings. And not so much in others. Sometimes there is a big perfomance difference , but can we really tell ? No not when the fps are already high. But remember in computer tech, you pay premium for the higher end stuff (period)

With all that being said i would get the GTX580! (coming from the guy with a gtx580)

I chose thee GTX 570 for this reason:

The extra $150 price doesn't justify the small advantage in performance.

for 1080P 1.2GB of Vram is just fine.

and both overclock well..

were talknig about the 4th fastest graphics card here.. it's up for the task well.

2x 560 Ti's will perform better than a GTX 580 and will be about the same cost as one 580, if you don't want to go nuts with the price.

If you have the money for a 580 get one, I've actually been debating getting a second one for the past two days.

Last time (until this past week) that I bought a top-of-the-line card was the 8800 GTX. I used it for almost four years before upgrading. I hope to so something similar with my new GTX 580 (which is $75 less than the 8800 GTX was in late 2006).

From what I saw the GTX 580 only gets 5 fps over the 570. Not sure how that is right, but according to Techspots benchmarks thats how it turns out.

Even keeps up with the 6970 which has more vram in high quality?!





Yeah, but I would get the 580 if you have lots of money. It is a lot more money than the 570, but has more vram, shaders and vrm phases.

Personally I would say the 6950 or 6970, but for some reason less vram Nvidia cards are beating it?
