GTX 570 SLI vs waiting for kepler series? - Page 2

post #11 of 27
I think depending on how it performs relative to the 7970 it will either be 50 dollars more expensive (about 600) or 50 less expensive (580 price). I really don't like what AMD with pricing this time around, it sets a bad precedent especially since Nvidia has been historically more expensive than AMD.

I think if all plays out well for Nvidia it should be a little better than two 570's

They will drop the price when Kepler releases, they will have to. I see their current pricing as just trying to make as much profit as they can in the few months the have the lead before dropping them heavily. The 7970 does look like a premium card with excellent components and cooling etc. but the 7950 looks ripe for a price cut, all the manufacturers seem like they know it too (like AMD told them to expect a price cut before too long) because they are all built off of just adequate coolers and many using the same PCB as the 6000 series cards.It just doesn't look like a high end card to me, it looks like a 6950 and I can seeit dropping to just above current 6950 prices (~$300) within 4 months.

False. I can play BF3 on ultra just fine at 1920x1080 with GTX560Ti 448 1280mb (OCed), even better than fine, I get 50+FPS, and to get perfect 60FPS gameplay is easy, just lower one of two AA options in BF3.

I was blown away by how smooth it was actually, because I didn't expect it after reading tons and tons of misleading comments like yours saying 1280mb isn't enough. [speculation] viral marketing by Nvidia/ATI to make more people by top of the line cards?[/speculation]

i5 2500K @ 4.5Ghz, Thermalright TS120 cooler, Corsair 8GB DDR3, MSI GTX560Ti 448 OC 1280MB 800core/2000mem. All OC stable, but will try to get more out of GPU after I upgrade PSU to something more meaty.
