just a thought, but how about a single gtx570 now and gtx6xx SLI next year..?
Even a single 570 should do pretty good, especially when OC'd and paired with 2600k.

570's can still do 3-way SLI, if you need more power than 2. Sadly I think you'll be VRAM limited with 570s if you do surround.

Not going to be going surround ANY time soon. I also just found out something about my money sitch that is going to keep me with one 570 for awhile; a rather long while. Still upgrading to the 2600K, though. Gonna OC the crap out of my GPU now!

Nice one man, if you can get them running on 850+ on the core then they'll match the 580 speeds so in essence you have a lesser Vram 580... for about 200euro less, and with 2 (like me) you'll be crying at the visual performance, crying with joy that is...

Did a test with another OCN member a while back with my GTX 580 and his over clocked GTX 570.

For the GTX 570 to reach the stock GTX 580 @772Mhz core the GTX 570 had to reach @ 865Mhz core to compare in 3DMark11 graphic score only. I have a GTX 580 SC I down clocked to Nvidia reference 772Mhz.

We ommited the other scores and focused on just raw graphic score taking CPU's out of the equation.

For him to catch my GTX 580 SC a 3% over clock stock performance @ 797Mhz core the GTX 570 equaled it @ 890Mhz core.

Naturally it can't compare to an over clocked GTX 580 but definetly can hit stock clocks with the GTX 570. I have a 24/7 13% over clock @ 875Mhz core and the GTX 570 couldn't theoretically reach it unless it can hit @ 968Mhz core.

Just an fyi for all those curious what OC for the GTX 570 which can reach reference stock GTX 580. smile.gif

Cheers man, i thought it was around the 850 mark, i've seen some 570's with 1000 on the core go head to head with the 580s

I think these are by far the best cards out there, good price/performance apart from the 560ti's

I concur.

The reference GTX 570's are a hit or miss as far as reliablity in terms with over volting / over clocking due to the 4+1 PWM issue.

No problemms at all with non-reference GTX 570's (which have also gotten bad rep thrown & under the same bus) which come with 6+1 Phase PWM and are very over clockable.
