Cheapish GTX 570

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have an opportunity to grab a MSI TF III GTX570 for £150 locally. Just wondering if I can get some opinions on picking this up and selling my 5850. In my head it seems like a decent enough idea, but figured I'd ask ocn for advice.
Also, isn't is msi that provide warranty based on serial number?

Cheers.

To everything you're asking I say YES. MSI warranty is SN based, and a 570 will provide noticeably higher max playable settings than a 5850 (esp. if tessellation is involved), and 150 quid is a brilliant price for that card (unless I'm arsed on my UK pricing, which I don't reckon I am).
