Gtx660 vs gtx580

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello,
I can have one of these for a great price from a friend (660 is a tf3, 580 is a SC).

Ive seen that the 580 is better regarding the raw power, but it heats and consume more :/
Is the 1.5gb vram of the 580 limiting more than the 192bit bus from the 660 ?

Thanks.

i would avoid both,one has 1.5gb which isnt enough for next gen and other has 192 bits bus which make the card use 1.5gb aswell... get HD 7870 GHz or HD 7870 XT both will use fully its vram

Okay, what about the VTX3D 7870 Black Edition ?
It uses tahiti Le too, and its way cheaper than any 7870XT where I live: http://www.rueducommerce.fr/Composants/Carte-Graphique/Carte-Graphique-ATI/VTX3D/4906553-Carte-graphique-VTX3D-VX7870-2GBD5-2DHV3E-Black-Edition-Radeon-HD7870-2048-Mo-PCI-Express-2-jeux-au-choix-offerts.htm

Same price as the 660's but im a bit afraid by this cooling.
