GTX 570 Upgrade

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,
Had my 570 for a year now and recent titles have started to strain it a bit. BF3 crashes quite a bit, forcing me to pull back my overclock to prevent the crashes. So i am pretty much set on a MSI 1536MB GeForce GTX 580 Twin Frozr II/OC as they are retailing at £370.
I know its a small upgrade, but im more interesting in the OC potenial as my 570 overclocks to a stable 840 core, and thats about it, also its hitting 90C without a custom fan profile.
It the MSI 1536MB GeForce GTX 580 Twin Frozr II/OC a good choice, or should i be looking elsewhere?
Money is not really a concern, however am put off by reports of SLI to get into this, so single card is where its at for me.

I wouldn't waste money on a 580 when you already own a 570, personally i would get a 2nd 570 for SLI, add a few fans and get your cooling sorted out. You'll be getting much more performance than a GTX580.

Would i not gain extra from increased memory that the 580 has over the 570? Noob question, but with SLI do i have to have the exact same cards. I have a MSI 570 OC, can i just put in a regular MSI 570?

Hi smile.gif

I'm running two totally different GTX480s in SLI. With no problems at all!
One is a reference GTX480, and the other a non-reference KFA2 GTX480 oc thinking.gif
And I use MSI Afterburner to set my clocks smile.gif

Memory buffer isn't of concern at your resolution (1080p), you wouldn't see a performance benefit unless you were running higher resolutions where VRAM becomes a need.

Yes you can SLI different models. Just be aware both will run at the clock speeds of the slowest card initially.

Thanks for the info. However i am pretty set on saying away from SLI. I mostly play flight sims and know many people have problems with there SLI setups with the particular titles i play.
