Moving from 570 SLI to 580 SLI...do I need to delete and reinstall the same driver?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Just as the title says. Got 2 lightning extremes headed my way, replacing 570's in SLI. Im using the latest Beta drivers, the 290 ones I believe, which would be the same as for the 580's. Should I still delete then reinstall the drivers, even if theyre the same ones? Also, when I installed the evga 570's it installed a program called SLI enhancement. Should I just delete that as well since its only for EVGA?

Yup, I would uninstall drivers, pull the 570's, plug in the 580's, and re-install. Congrats on the upgrade! thumb.gif

Also, if anyone wants to put their two cents in on this question of SLI power supply, that would be great.

You're fine, its might be within ~75 watts or so, I might be wrong, but I have seen 580Sli run off of 750watts. Plus you have corsair who underrated their PSU and it's a silver.

yeah I started with a Corsair TX-750W and was good with SLI 580's...
Just upgraded for some headroom and some more overclocking...

No need for any EVGA software... Just get drivers from Nvidia.com
I prefer MSI Afterburner over EVGA's tool due to voltage OC's...

You will now be able to push the filtering options to the max.
I'm pretty sure you have faced some stuttering because of the Vram on those 570.
Am I right ?

Take out the old cards, install old cards, turn on PC and let windows load, then restart.

Should be good.

And a TX750 is more than enough for stock 580s. You'll be able to OC to lower 800s in the core department too if you wanted, safely.

Oh yes undoubtedly. I had been using an xfx 5870 for the past year and I ran most games on high fine, then I got BFBC2...then I got BF3...

So I had been kicking a lot of tires trying to figure out what I wanted to upgrade to and decided to do the 570 SLI route. I thought I researched well enough but didnt really know just how much msaa affected VRAM til I saw it in BF3. I regretted not going for 2gb plus VRAM, then said f- it and found a deal on 580 lightning xtremes and just went with it.

In the past month Ive upgraded from:
amd 1100t at 4ghz
4gb gskill ripjaw 1600
asus ch5 formula
single 5870

to:
i7 2600k oc'ed to 4.5ghz
gskill sniper at 1866 and 1.35v biggrin.gif
dual 570's
asus p8z68 deluxe

and in the next few days:
570's back to micro center

That's a nice upgrade ^^

Are those the 1.5Gb version or the 3Gb version ?

I don't want to scare you but I've seen BF3 use 1.6Gb + on my 560 Ti's

EDIT : 1866Mhz with 1.35v that's impressive.

Oh definitely the 3gb. I wouldn't make the same mistake twice. So riddle me this. This has been asked about ddr3 plenty of times, but would it be the same for vram?

If you have enough data to saturate 1280mb of vram on a 570, would the slight to negligible improvement to 1500mb on a 580 (but given the larger bus at 384) would it reduce stuttering and be able to have much more data cached? And also, is "more" data actually stored compared to identical sizes of vram, but 2 different bus's or is it simply accessed faster? Out of curiosity....

Similar to the "what is better, 4gb at 2133 or 8gb at 1600/1333" questions.
