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