Question about EVGA GeForce GTX 570 and "best" card for surround/Eyefinity

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Question 1:
I've had my 570 for a few years now.
And during gaming the temp have been around 80-85 celsius with fans on auto, lately Ive manually changed the fan speed to 70% to get the heat down, since in my eyes that's to hot.
So the question is what should the temp be when I'm playing games like Crysis 2, Borderlands 2 and the latest Bioshock Infinite, graphic at around "normal/high".

Question 2:
When I got home last night and sat down at my computer and was going to play Bioshock Infinite I noticed that my frames was just horrible, it was around 10-15 fps while early that day after Ive installed the latest beta drivers I had a almost stable 50 fps.
I can't understand what can have happen when Ive was away.
Is this just a result of a to hot GPU over a long time?
I have also tried to installed an older driver but that didn't really help.

If it's important I've also got a tiny card on the side GT 520 since I'm running three screens.

I've also tested it out on other games and they are all performing horribly.

I also tried that inbuilt performance information in Windows 8, if that matters.
Graphics: 7.6 to 3.6
Gaming graphics: 7.5 to 4.1

Question 3:
Since all this have happen I'm looking into a new card.
And since I have three screens I would like a card that supports that and I would like to try out playing on all of them. Ref to nVidia surround or AMD eyefinity.
I looked into the card MSI GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB and Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 3GB.

I've read on this forum that it's recommended to have 3GB when it comes to running surround/eyefinity, is that correct?

Do you guys have any other cards to recommend for surround/eyefinity in the price class 334 €


Edit:
Ive found out what the reason was.
Somehow the GPU and Memory clock was turned all the way down...

I'm having the same issue with bioshock stuttering after sometime playing the game. At first it runs smooth but later it starts to stutter. What did you do to fix this? I have the latest drivers and running two GTX 570's in SLI.

The GPU and Mem clocked down is because of the GPU throttling. Mine does the same same thing sometimes and my 580 is watercooled. Never reaches 55C, to fix the throttle you need a restart. If you are still wanting to Upgrade get the 7950. Much faster then the 660ti and more Vram.

Fixed it by turning the graphic down to medium.

Never noticed or had this problem before, don't know why a GPU would throttling (down) but maybe it's because of heat?
Im thinking about getting the 7950 when I get my paycheck ;P

GTX 570 only support two monitors so I bough a cheap GT 520 just so I would get all three screens "active".
Ofc I dont play on all three, only 1 is used for gaming.

Not heat, it's a issue with these cards. Mine never reaches 60C on load and it sometimes throttles.

As for the 3 screens looks like I will have to get a nice cheap card as well. Aw well, once I get a 7series card there will not be a problem with this.
