can gtx570 sli, playable max everything?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
i have one gtx570, before wasting my cash on a second one, i wanna know if i can expect to MAX (and be playable) games,

game such as

crisis 2 (i can play it MAX but its really bad FPS, im not sure if its a vram issue or single card issue)

BF3 (had no real issues during beta, but beta wasnt maxed)

Batman Arkham City (i really want play this maxxed)

Assassins Creed series

Mass Effect series


basicially i dont want to get a second card if i am hitting a VRAM wall at 1080, (1920x1080), where as i can just sell my 570 and get a 580.

sli GTX 570 should be able to max out most games you will get more performance than a single GTX 580. But you could get the GTX 580 and go sli with that.

Well the VRAM wall can be countered by the sheer power of the GTX 570's in SLI. It starts to matter a little less the more powerful the card is...I don't see why Nvidia always sells its higher end cards with odd amounts of VRAM though.

Anyways, you'll be fine for now with 2 GTX 570's maxing out pretty much everything...the lack of VRAM won't really make a noticeable difference...perhaps just a couple frames.

The only concern I would have would be batman AC with max PhysX 570sli might not be quiet enough (I would expect playable framerates at all times just maybe not 60+ all the time, It will come down to what you consider maxed out)


Edit: After considering what I just posted I realised it was most likely a load of crap... 570sli should be able to do every game at 1080.

Yes you can. As long as they are the same GPUs (ie GTX 580) they will SLI with out any issus. The thing is that if the cards have different core clocks stock the cards will default to that of the lowest clocked one and then you can OC manually using MSI afterburner or whatever you prefer.

570 SLI should max everything at 1080P. I have 1 580 and I max everything. 570s in SLI are more powerful than 1 580
