I'm hoping that by February next year (when my degree ends) I can have another 580GTX in place to satisfy my gaming requirements.
One has just popped up in the For Sale section but I don't feel like £200 is a good enough deal to jump on.

You can get another lightening for £260 new. So if it's a 1.5GB see if they'll accept an offer.

The 3gb versions are still about £100 premium at between £350-£400

I was looking at that about one hour ago.

You can get the Twin Frozr II version for £225 too! That''s not a bad price to be fair for such a good quality GPU.

Congrats thumb.gif

EDIT: I used to own a 570 SOC myself, how does the amount of memory on the 570 hold up at 1440p with games like BF3?

^That's what I would expect, so pretty much maxed out. Does it glitch or lag at all when it runs out of memory?

Nothing that I've noticed. Certainly no lag anyway.

bf3 is such a bad example for memeory usage, doesn't matter if you have 1.2gb or 4gb. It's going to use it just because it can while providing no benefiting, unless you have a setup like vega with 5 monitors...then yes thats a different story.

Probably, no offense because of the shear cost that thing is compared to our Koreans.
