Need advise on these two Nvidia cards

post #1 of 89
Thread Starter 
Please tell me wich of these 2 cards would be better for a 3 monitor setup and why.

Galaxy MDT GTX570 1.2G of DDR5 or EVGA GTX560TI 2 WIN 2G of DDR5

Not much gaming anymore and if I do I only use 1 monitor for gaming while the other 2 would be for multi tasking.

The games I do play are Guild Wars (and 2 when it comes out), New Vegas and Battlefield 3.

Right now I use 2 23" 1080p with the 3rd still in the box in the garage.

Just to be clear the total memory is 2GB, but its 1GB per card. So you only have 1GB of available Vram. Its still a very fast card, just wanted to clarify.

Vram wont really matter in this situation if you only game with one monitor, either card should be fine.

The 2gb will really benefit the monitor set up although the other card (570) is a better overclock and is better for SLI.

You NEED 2 cards to run 3 monitors. Just letting you know. wink.gif

I'd grab two of the 560Ti 448c cards myself. The 560 2win would work, as its a dual GPU single card setup (like the 590).

You could also run a single AMD card as well. AMD cards allow up to 3 monitors for a single card. Nvidia only allows 2. You could easily buy a single 7950 for the cost of 2 GTX560Ti 448c cards.
