The reports of dying 570's and weak VRM's is worrying me. I'm considering stepping up to the 580. I have the money, I'm just trying to justify this to myself lol. I realized yesterday that today is the last day I'm eligible.

Does anyone know if the 580 has less coil whine than the 570? My 570 is pretty awful in that respect.

Coil whine is a problem from any card you buy. Some cards have it, some not.

I wouldn't hesitate to get rid of your reference card for a new 580. The reference 570s are hit or miss when it comes to random failure.

I remember reading a while back that cards that used fancy components (certain chokes or solid state caps, something like that) didn't get coil whine nearly as bad, if at all. I wasn't sure if the extra money for the 580 got me any of those features.

I think I'm going to do it.

This had a play in affecting my decision to upgrade as well. While I can't say the 580's are $150 better (each), they do offer good peace of mind knowing that the VRM circuitry is better. On top of that, framerates have smoothed out quite a bit in my situation with a lot less stuttering going on. I also have a watt meter right here and the power draw is only slightly more at stock settings compared to running my 570's with a small overclock at 800/1600 (core/shader).

If the peace of mind and slightly better performance is worth at least $150 to you, then it is definitely worth it.

For what it's worth, though, coil whine is highly dependent on a case by case situation as different combinations of hardware (and even variations between batches) may or may not produce this. It's possible that if you get a 580, that card, in particular, may not exhibit the coil whine, but it is still a toss up. Regardless, I wish you luck in getting a combo that is quiet if you decide to do the Step Up.

I'm not too sure about weak VRM's on the GTX 570's. A lot of 570 owners in this club and very few complaints. If any 570 owners would like to chime in and tell us how your cards have been would be great roll call. Get a real pulse on the matter, seems like there's a lot of speculation.

As for the GTX 580 I can speak for myself. It's been a very nice card and the first best single GPU card I've ever owned. I'm playing Crysis, Crysis 2, Rift, Batman Arkum Asylum for me all maxed out settings. Full screen, AA x16, 1920x1080 resolution on my new 120Hz monitor just awesomely. In 10months I'll be adding a second to SLI most likely.

With any card seems there's always some issues from any company and any line for the most part. Some of it is luck of the draw, the cards that come over clocked have better binned ram in my opinion.

If you have the extra cash, still within the step up, and only doing one card, might as well be the top of the line for single GPU any way since you can't step up from a single GPU pcb to a dual GPU pcb from EVGA.
