6970 or GTX 570 for my system? - Page 13

post #121 of 125
Isn't it true that nvidia cards only seem to do well with an i7 processor and ati cards can do well with the old core 2s? That might be something to consider if you are running an old lga775 socket with the core 2s / quads!

One single powerful gpu is always better really. Those two 460s will take a lot more power and of course produce more heat. You'll have microstuttering, you'll have games that might not utilize both cards, you'll have other issues that come with a dual gpu set up. With a 6970, you'll have a smoother experience at a fraction of the cost of a GTX580. Plus once drivers improve, and you can unlock the voltage, the 6970 will probably be just as fast as the GTX580 at lower resolutions. You could say go with the GTX570, but in the end, 1.2GB falls way short of 2GB of the 6970. It's a no brainer, 6970 is the better option. - and this coming from an nvidia fan boy BTW.

Hey, I'm all for a single GPU solution, I just mentioned that because YOU recommended dual 6950's and good luck having that run stable at all times.

For HIS resolution, the choice is clear a 570, that extra ram doesn't mean much unless u're at higher resolutions, and I've already shown that the 6970 doesn't win everything at the higher resolutions, but in fact, the 570 does.

anyway, all the info is here already
