New GFX Card - 570 - Help me find one cheap!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

A few weeks ago I posted a topic about how I was in line for a new GFX card... Several people recommended me a 570, which I have decided to get... So here's what Im looking for...

I've looked around and found a few deals but I know you guys know the places to look, etc...



I am Canadian so the prices must be in CAD, and the dealer doesn't matter...

1. I need a 570, and I would like to get the highest possible one in terms of VRAM, I've heard there's a 2.5 GB 570 out there but I can't seem to find it... Anyone help? Any sites that are relatively cheap and can you link the 2.5 GB card?

2. I also need a new power supply, and I don't want a SUPER HIGH END one that's got all the bells and whistles... All I need is a solid PSU that will be reliable and run a 570... I think it's somehwere around 600 Watt's that I need, so anything that's within the range of running a 570 would be great.


Thanks for all the help guys! smile.gif

The card you're thinking of is the EVGA GTX 570 2560MB: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130687

I must stress that if you're only gaming at 1920x1080 then the regular 1280MB card will more than suffice, though it's totally up to you.

If you think you'll only need a 1280MB card then the Gigabyte GTX 570 Overclock (the card I currently have) is whisper quiet and performs outstandingly: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125384

As for PSU, the Corsair TX-650 V2 Power Supply is very popular and reliable for a decent price: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139020&Tpk=Corsair%20TX-650%20V2%20Power%20Supply

Hope this helps!

Thanks so much for replying!

The only reason I want to get the 2.5 GB Card is because a lot of people are saying it's more "future proof' than the 1.5 gb cards, since more and more games are starting to use more VRAM from the GPU... If this isn't really the case and not going to make a big difference I won't get the 2.5 GB Card, but if it will make the difference I'll grab it... Is it true and necessary for future games?

My native res is 1920x1080

Why not just get a 6970 instead of paying extra for the 570 2.5GB?

A good 600W PSU will run a GTX 570 just fine.

I recommend this one:

If gaming above 1600P, i'd go with one of these, if you can find it.

Did he say anything about wanting a 6970? No.
He said he has decided on a GPU, a 570.

You would be right if this was posted in the Nvidia section, but it's not thumb.gif

If your not going to do anything but game on the 570 I would get a reference model. That leaves you some options IMO. You will not be limited to air cooling and restricted water block design. Industry standard in layout also means that you do not have improvements made by other manufacturers, in some cases that would be a good or bad thing but that is for you to decide. There will be some games from my experience that will not be maxed out on settings on a 4+Ghz clocked CPU and single 570 Vanilla. Arma 2 for one was a CPU crusher so the 570 was not the out weighing factor. Witcher 2 was another and Metro 2033 being dependent on GPU power. EVGA would be a good place for the warranty.

Yeah it will be a purely gaming card, primarily used for Skyrim, Battlefield 3, and SWTOR when it comes out (I know TOR isn't heavy on GPU).

As for not wanting a 6970, it's because I have been told from reviews, etc that the 570 generally performs a bit better, plus the 6970 is a larger card and my space is limited, as well as not liking AMD much anymore, plus I would like a card with a lifetime Warranty, which ATI doesn't really offer that I can seem to find.

So as far as I can see from the SS posted, the 2.5 GB will be only negligible difference's in performance at best compared to the 1.5 GB card... Will this change in future games? If so I'll grab the 2.5, but if newer games aren't going to utilize the extra VRAM I'll go for the 1.5.

Except that it doesn't perform any better at all.

If you're going for a 570 2.5GB then you might as well look around for a good deal on a 580 in my opinion.
