I currently have the EVGA GTX570. I continually hear about the problem about the 570 getting fried due to voltage around 1.1V. I am hoping to overclock my GTX570, but I have around 50 days left on my stepup program. Would it be fine to stick with the 570, or would it be recommended to stepup to the 580.

(As of right now, the 570 seems perfect or even too much for all games i play)

Realistically, the 580 makes very little difference for the extra cost on a single 1080p monitor. If it works fine for you as it is, I see no point in spending the extra money - especially since you're feeling this way about the stock clocks. Just be reasonable about your overclocks and it will treat you right.

hmmm, just got an U2711 - is it a good idea to upgrade to twin GTX580? Metro 2033 (until I finish the storyline), Starcraft 2, Starcraft 2, Starcraft 2, Bad Company 2, and whatever else that comes out (and is actually worth playing over and over again).

EDIT: or would twin HD6970 2GB cards fare better?

EDIT2: #3/#4 in my step up queue I'll have other uses for these cards if they aren't faster at 2560x1440 than twin 2GB HD6970, looks like I have some research to do. I have a FT03, so aircooling and the AMD idiotbox cooler design is not an issue.

Awww... I thought you were getting two more U2311H's...

While not quite at 4MP as in 2560x1600 resolution, 2560x1440 is still nothing to sneeze at either. I'm sure the extra horsepower from the SLI GTX 580's will be put to good use and you may be able to turn up an extra notch or so of AA in most games at that resolution.

In the end, it's up to you to decide how you want to spend your money. For me, I saw that I had already spent the ~$720, and I knew I was never going to get back that full amount if I wanted to resell it. So rather than deal with the hassle of selling the cards and then buying new ones, I opted to upgrade instead. I feel that part of the strength of the Step Up program is to make it seem like it hurts less by spreading the payments out so far apart, but in the end, the sum total is still $1000 spent on graphics cards.

From a bang-for-buck standpoint, the AMD cards will win, hands down, when it comes to high and super-high resolution gaming. They will very likely take the winning positions if your goal is to push the AA settings as far as possible due to the extra onboard VRAM. And they can do it for the cost of a single GTX 580 by going with two HD6950's that can easily be flashed to HD6970's.

If I were buying new today, those would be my choice, but alas I am vested into my purchases already and quite happy with the stability of the drivers.

maybe two more U2711 in the upcomming months Yeah, I wanted to try 3D Vision, so I went with a GTX570, too late to change courses now.

But, according to Vega's reviews on [H], I'd probably want to bite at the 3GB variants.

More VRAM does help at 2560 x 1440, as does dual GPUs. Back when I had a 5850, I had to tune down most games a little at 2560 x 1440.

Try it with a single one, then, if you feel you need it, get another. If you are going tri U2711's. Well...that's just insanity

Enjoy it, it's a truly beautiful monitor.

In that case, yep, you are definitely going to need cards with as much VRAM as they do horsepower. Those would be beautiful monitors for Eyefinity/Surround gaming.

yeah, when I get the other two (saw a coworker's triple U2410 setup on a HD5770e5, lol), I'll probably be forced to get a GPU upgrade anyways. Hopefully more news on HD7000 or Kepler come out by then

I got the U2711 since it's barely much larger than the U2410, yet has a much higher res (and a higher PPI, which I want for my work - MS Office hell & Softimage/Photoshop schoolyard).

ah, thanks I kinda figured from the few reviews I managed to get through before I decided to be lazy and rely on fellow OCN'ers as a crutch to doing actual research

EDIT: though, before long, I'll end up being one of the research subjects o.0

The U2711 chucks out a large amount of heat though, hope you have an aircon unit/big window if you get 3.

Once you see the res, and the depth of colour with it, you will , ,
