Well I could get a 570 gtx for $260 (used) I'm supposed to go see it and pick it up Saturday but now, I can't make up my mind. I wanted an Nvidia card for 3D gaming, but, now the 7000s are coming out and they look amazing so maybe I should wait for the 600s? Or maybe just grab a new AMD card and go for an eyefinity setup... I just don't know anymore.

Please advice for a lost gamers soul, should I buy the 570, buy an AMD, wait for kepler, anything else I didn't think?

Eh, is 3D even worth it? Any advice is welcomed.

-Thanks

I have 2 570's in SLI. They are cool, quiet, they have cuda and physx and they are bloody awesome cards mate. go for it. thumb.gif

Note - if a gtx 570 maxes your FPS at your gaming resolution and it is cool and quiet, what benefit are you going to see over a 'red team' card.

In the end its up to you mate. It's your hard earned that you're spending.

$260 is a pretty good deal. New mine was about 360-370. I say go for it.

Well my only concern is how will a single gtx570 even do at 3d, I think in 2D its GREAT, i love mine, but 3D i have read requires a lot more power than 2D since it needs to render twice the amount of frames. Correct me if im wrong anyone thumb.gif

$260 used is a great deal, and since there is no information on Nvidia's 600/700 series cards (pricing and performance), I would take it. As for the AMD 7000 series, I doubt the cards priced around $260 will be as good as the 570. The HD 7950 = GTX 580 in terms of performance and is priced around $450+. The 570 equivalent will most likely be ~ $300 if AMD wants to be competitive.

I have two 570's in SLI, and even with one card you could max out most games and play at 50+ fps. You could always SLI in the future, when Kepler comes out and the 500 series cards get a price drop.

I reckon, AMD leads Nvidia a little on the 3-monitor tech category but trails behind on the 3D category.

If 3D + 3-monitor combo is definitely down the road for you, I would give Nvidia a little edge.

 

You really have to experience both technologies by yourself as the experience is quite personal and differs from one person to another.

Go to a store and play with them and see if you like either or both.

And better yet, if you have a friend that has them, go and play so that you can use them for an extended period of time. This is because a 5-minute experience in a store is sometimes not indicative enough.

 

For myself, I do not like Eyefinity/Surround for playing FPS games as I find the stretching of the images on the side monitors not acceptable. However, I quite like using 3-monitor setup for auto/flying simulation games.

For 3D, it is fun for a short period of time. I can get dizzy when playing for a longer time. And I just hate wearing those 3D glasses.

 

So, you will have to try these technologies for yourself.

 

In all cases, I suggest waiting for Kepler. Not necessarily for the purpose of getting a Kepler card but when Kepler comes next month or April (according to latest news/rumors), prices for the HD7970/7950 will drop (my speculation only, of course) and perhaps the price for (used) GTX570/580 as well.

 

I cannot redeem your lost gamer's soul but I hope my post helps a little.wink.gif

Well thank you for the people who have voted and responded, so far it looks like I'm going for it! I guess I'll start looking at other hardware to complement it.

3D does not require as much as you would think, it's more of a matter of tricking the brain, letting the right eye see something then the left and so on. It is a little bit more demanding but no where near as demanding as upping the resolution. If you want to know more in depth of how it works, tomshardware had written a descent article on it.

Thanks I have tried them both for extended periods of time, I did mind the stretching, but not that annoying; the 3D I really did like played for about 6hours without any problems. You sure Kepler will be out next month or april?

I looked through that article, I was pleased to see those fps with AA on. I was reading about BF3 in 3D so maybe thats why so many people were making a big deal out of it. I only wish I could see it in action though, currently not sure it would be something worth upgrading a nice 1080 monitor for since the early models on display at frys never appealed to me, Im sure now its MUCH better though.

I can deffinetly tell you though the gtx570 in normal gaming is great, its perfect for a single 1080 monitor. BF3 (ultra msaa off), sc2, black ops, mw3, dirt3, all play excellent

+rep for the link though
