Hi guys,

Need some urgent advice as I need to place the order by today.

Should I buy two GTX 570 SC GPUs or a single GTX 590 Classified. Both, 570 and 590, are EVGA AR models with lifetime warranty.

http://ncix.com/products/?sku=62688&vpn=03G-P3-1596-AR&manufacture=eVGA

Don't mind the prices. I am price matching and the 570 SLI setup is ~$30 cheaper.


Which will perform better (I assume the 570s but I'm not sure by how much)?
Will the 1280MB of VRAM have much of an impact (gaming at 1920x1080)?
What will hold more value after Kepler?
What will stay cooler in my 600T (two intake fans 1x120mm, 1x140mm)?


EDIT: Added a poll. May be easier to come to a conclusion this way. smile.gif

The 590 will be cooler, but it sacrifices performance to do so.
The 570s will equal the speed of the 590.
The 570s will hold more value I'd expect.
And you need more intake fans on your 600T.

Thanks! +rep

I can't add anymore intake. Two in, two out. H100 is exhausting out the top. Stock corsair fan exhausting out the back.

The 600T may look good, imo, and have great cable management, but the airflow is fairly bad. frown.gif

GTX 570's are probably better but I would recommend getting reference design cards that blow heat out of the back of the card. These will run cooler in an environment with not many fans (like yours). Plus I hear those evga hd models run hot and loud because they just shoved the gtx 560ti cooler on a gtx 570.

Well, either way it will be two GPUs but I'm not sure what will be hotter.

I found a great deal on the SC version so I think I am going to stick with those if I go the 570 SLI route.

I just sold a Matrix 580 so these are really my only options as 580 SLI is out of my price range.

I say just go buy those 570's and be happy with them!

I stumbled across this just now: http://www.bestdirect.ca/products/232307/eVGA/012_P3_1572_AR/

I've read a lot of reports of ~85C in a single card setup with that particular 570. I can't imagine how hot the top card would get in SLI in my case.


I may just have to pull the trigger on a 590...

I think that you will save a few watts if you run a single over SLI but if the cash is the issue the SLI 570 is the way to go. 6 bills for a card is steep and you can add a second for a few bucks less. Hell you can get two of 'em for the price of the water cooled versions.

This is good advice.

With this already said - get a GTX590.

They are the dog's bollocks currently, and when you need to upgrade in the future, you can just get another GTX 590 and SLI.

The GTX 590 is more future-proofable IMO.
