Which Card would you recommend between these 2?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey there,
After looking around, i decided to go with a Gigabyte card for my GTX 580.
But i am wondering, between the two i see i wants, will memory make up for the clock speeds?
Please take a look.
1536mb
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814125379
or
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814125399
3072

And please if you have a suggestion for a 580 other than these.
Please shoot them at me

Thank you!

Nope unfortunatley

Id personally go with the EVGA 3gb card (Due to their awesome warranty and customer service), but I also run a multi-monitor setup that warrants the 3gb of vram.

The only reason you would need more Vram is a higher res.

If you are running 1920x1080 the then extra money on vram is a waste. 1.5gb vram card would be more than sufficient for your needs

1.5GBs should be sufficient if you're running a 23 incher.

Just a suggestion though:

Gtx 580 3gb:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130655

Gtx 580 3gb Classified:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130732

The classified is $10 bucks more and has a much better fsb, plus that card can go to 900 without breaking a sweat and no voltage adjustments.

As an added bonus its big fan makes it cooler and quieter as well
