2 gtx 570=700(350 ea)

may have been overzealous

well i thought about waiting for kepler several times but unless they come out in the nest 5 months i wont have access to them for about 9 months

As I mentioned twice earlier, April is when I would recommend waiting till if you don't absolutely need more performance right now (and even if you think you do then at least wait and test your new monitor with a single 570 before deciding, mentioned that already as well). I would be very surprised if we didn't at least know 90% of the important info about kepler (price, performance and release date) by the end of April, but honestly I expect them to release in April as well. April 8th is the release of Intel's Ivy Bridge, and with it will bring a big increase of new systems being built, GPU manufacturers will want to have their best foot forward to capitalize on this. When SB released Nvidia had the 560ti to launch alongside it, and I would expect them to have the best product they can have in that price range again, rather than hope that people put more than year old 560tis and 570s into those new IVB systems.

Can you please try to avoid double and triple posting in the future. smile.gif

moives are 24fps, games 80fps, worthless, overkill.

unless the FPS is constant you will notice a difference if its lower than 60, also 60hz is what I play at with my monitor, hence i like to be a tad above it so its nice and smooth.

Craiglist for one, hell maybe even on here.

I had 2 570's in sli, but my evga failed, it's getting rma'd as we speak. EVGA 3yrs parts/labor!!!

And yes 2 570's out do one 580. Check out this page.

pick at section and start comparing, I usually look at 3dmark11 test results.

That's a strange post of mine to choose to respond to. I'd be much more interested in a response to this post of mine than to my rhetorical question.

3dMark11 is just a synthetic, and not really a good one at that. I'd prefer real world game results if that's what he's using the extra for.

With SLI, you are sacrificing power and adding a vast quantity heat in your build, possibly removing some airflow. So make sure you can handle that, along with the extra PSU requirements.

This is the series of real world tests you want: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/307?vs=305

My 'normal' upgrade path is usually to get two midrange cards to attack the high end. Was 4850s, then 5850s. Cards are a bit around the place while I wait for 7970s to arrive.

I'll just say ... I've had 'em for a long time now, and I still LOVE LOVE LOVE my 470's in SLI ... and obviously 570's in SLI would be even better. I've yet to run into vram-related performance issues at 1920x1200, and I tend to max every game with 4xAA or higher. That includes BF3, which I can run maxed on Ultra no problem.

It may not be super future-proof, but I personally think it's gonna be a WHILE before you really need >1280MB vram for 1920 resolutions in a significant number of games.

THX!!!!

hell i'd sell my 570 for 200 plus shipping,just so i can get 2 of the same kind!!!
post #29 of 30
On topic, back in the day of the 8800 series, I decided to keep my investment going and adding another one for SLI when everyone started jumping for the 9800 and gtx 200 series. Setup lasted long and was barely able to push 25+fps on Crysis Warhead (1900x1200).

Right now I'm finally upgrading to the gtx500 series

My rule of thumb: Buy that 1 card card that can outperform your current SLI configuration.
