Don't spend $540 for a GTX 480, I bought mine for $300 and I'm not saying you'll get as good as a price as I did but you can come close.

Graphics are very important for me, and I'm actually thinking about getting the 580.

Though i don't play games so often, i just want to play Graphics-intensive games at 60fps minimum. I will probably sell the card after 2-3 months and wait for Maxwell and real PC games like Doom 4, Rage and HL3.

Yeah, the GTX480 is quite loud. doesn't bother me too much, seeing as I don't have my computer too close to me, but it definitely can irritate some.
How about idle noise, is it louder than an air conditioner, or it's really distractive.

540 is the price of a new card.

i voted 570, it will play anything out there and look great while doing it. good temps, quiet fan and the cheapest. no-brainer! no sense in buying old tech with the 480, they are loud and hot and offer the same or slightly worse performance than the 570. the 580 is pretty expensive, so if you havent built the rest of your system yet, the 570 is probably your best bet. not to mention with a resolution that small, the 580 is WAY over kill. you wouldnt even notice a tangible difference in the gameplay from the 570 to the 580, yea the number in the corner of the screen might be bigger, but the 570 will play just as smooth at such a small resolution.

where are you getting your prices? are you outside the US? all your prices are about $100 high

6970 for 369?

the GTX 570 is cheaper at $349 (idk where OP is getting prices that are $100 too high) and the 570 is about as fast, and sometimes faster than the 69xx cards. not to mention the 570 has better temps and its quieter

ME. Evga is the only company with good prices here. You have to spend 520$ for a gigabyte 470 though, lmao!


Thanks everyone for helping, i'm shocked, 2 pages of helpful info in a matter of 15 mins. I'm most probably going to get the 570 next week. You can still continue the discussions tough.

I only own a 17" monitor @1600X1200 resolution (the native res is 1280x1024). Cpu+MB recommendations would be welcome as well, thanks.

EDit:Wow, some mods please correct the poll question, thanks.smile.gif

470 or 5850 tbh. Your going way overboard with a 580 at that resolution.

And the 570 is winning because it is the cheapest. biggrin.gif

Im sure it won't be way overboard with Metro 2033 or crysis2 when that comes out.

id suggest upgrading your monitor first before dropping that kind of money on a 570+. a gtx 460 or two will be more than enough for games at that resoltions (1600x1200)

Not only the cheapest, but the best overall price / performance card out there right now.

No need to go into all the details. wink.gif
