A little dilemma - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Thread Starter 
Everybody thank you so much for your inputs.

I again changed my mind but now for GOOD...

I decided to keep my Motherboard and CPU now and invest in a 120 hz monitor at first...

Later down the road I will SELL my 570 IF I find out that the new kepler series from Nvidia are worth the money. Maybe a 680 or even a 690 depends on the performance.

This seemed to be the best solution right now.

I love my motherboard and its a good one but the only limitation is the SLI incapibility. If i never go SLI my motherboard will be more than enough.


Glad to hear that i5 @ 4.5 is perfectly fine as well which means i can keep it for a very long time.


SO final decision

1-) Get a 120 hz monitor and be ready. Even in 2D which 570 is pretty damn good in 1080p gaming, i should notice a good amount of difference in a 120 hz display.

ANd note that I came back to PC gaming after 4 years of PS3 so there are LOTS of older games i will play first as well. Dragon Age, Mass Effect and even Stalker are a few and a 570 will probably handle them perfectly even in 3Dvision

2-) Get a good 680 or 670 or even a 690... When they come out probably around summer.

The first card is at 16 but the second card can only go to 4...

Which seems not good for SLI and not recommended by NVIDIA.


Oh okay I misunderstood then redface.gif

Yeah I'd also go with getting a new motherboard + 2x570s. 590 runs too hot to justifiy it IMO, unless you have money to spend on watercooling.
