does a 570 make that much of a difference over a 560? I have a couple days left until I can return for 15% restocking and get the 570. Should I?

If so, what brand is nice? I'd like one with a good stock cooler like the twin frozr :3

GTX 570 reaches close to AMD 6970 performance very comparably. Yeah it's an improvement. If you SLI the GTX 560ti it's also a strong combination though. Up to you which route you'd like to go.

Question is later will you SLI the GTX 570 do you think? If not, then your better off with two GTX 560's SLI than one GTX 570.

Well... Basically I payed 265 for gtx 560. with 15% restocking, All I'ma pay is 75 more for gtx 570. I won't be SLIing the 570. However, if I SLI the 560 then I'll be paying another 265+ for it... and I keep thinking SLI 560 is overkill...

Then going the single card solution your best bet is to get the best one you can afford in my opinion. That's why I went with one GTX 580, with the option if I can afford it to go a second later should gaming catch up with my one card.

Hit that 'step up' button and you'll see performance gains. In bench reviews I've seen the GTX 570 run neck in neck with the AMD 6970. Winning some, losing others but both scenarios were pretty close in FPS.

Anyone else, opinion for Jessy?

Blaaarrg, I had a really long response typed out but my power went out due to the random tornadoes that are terrorizing the US atm so I lost it.

Essentially, since she already owns a 560, and the best version of it minus the TFIII *hawk*. It logically makes more sense that if she needs more power in the future she can simply add another card, I'm also saying this based on that even with 2 560's her proc wouldn't bottleneck, so there's no future proof issue there.

I myself just got the card in my sig literally today, and I'm enjoying it. I plan on obtaining another when Elder Scrolls: Skyrim comes out, though, I'll likely need a platform change *Mobo/proc* even if Skyrim supports quad core, but I'm expecting this.

She's in a better position, her PSU should be sufficient, and I'm sure her mobo supports SLI. So for her it would simply be a matter of obtaining another 560 when the time comes.

Wouldn't I still be better off putting in like 75 more dollars for 570, and SLI it later on, and will outperform 560sli. I'm only paying 75/150 for 570set up so I might as well no?
