Asus 570 or EVGA SC?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
So i've decided to upgrade my first ever build one last time (for the next two years at least). Going to buy 1090t and GTX 570 within the next few weeks - then thats it - no more spending money on damn computer

Question i have is what would be better for the longer term (2-3 years). Asus GTX 570 @ 747/3800 or EVGA SC Edition GTX 570 @ 797/3900?

I know the SC edition is likely to be faster (obviously), but the Asus has a non-reference cooler that claims to run 14c cooler than the reference cooler which interests me(does anybody know if it actually runs cooler/quieter?)

Just how good is the reference cooler on the 570?

Don't plan to overclock them (Cpu or Gpu), since i'm dreadful at it so i'll be running them on stock speeds which should be more than enough for my needs.

Asus or EVGA?

I say get what ever is cheaper...
You say you're keeping the card for a few years..I love EVGA.. but now how things are unfolding as companies are stepping up there game.. I would go for the cheaper card....
As they are mostly all made to reference specs.
I am thinking about this as well.. but I don't know what to do..
Will coming from a GTX 470 and then upgrading to either a 570 or a 580.
hmm.. It's a great world we live in.. as wel have choices. sometimes overwhelming.
Shashooots and good luck with you choice.. and trust me you won't be disappointed.

Both brands ASUS and EVGA are the best for graphic cards.

I always bought ASUS in the past, and I went for the first time to EVGA GTX580 since one week (Normal version, no SC).

It overclocks easily (Stable in games at 900/1800/2204), just by increasing gpu voltage from 1V to 1,1V and by pushing fan until max speed.

I should advise you to take the normal GTX570 (EVGA), because from my experience in the past, it is more easy to overclock a "standard" one than an already "factory clocked" one.

Be careful also, to not create bottleneck, it is necessary to have a quad, at minimum 3,5GHz.

Some new games (As Call of Duty Black Ops for example) are realy taking advantages of quad cores and even if you have a GTX570, but if you don(t have the right CPU to help your card to give all its skills...It will be a pity...

Thanks guys. Think i already knew what i wanted really (the Asus), just wanted to make sure i wasn't making a big mistake choosing one over the other!

In an ideal world i'd mod my H50 to accomidate this http://www.scan.co.uk/products/1280m...2mhz-480-cores Just not gonna happen though

WOW. Really? I'm suprised at that - and a little worried! I thought a 955 could handle a 570 and modern games with ease?

As i said in my intro i was gonna upgrade to a 1090t soon enough - would this be enough at stock speeds - how hard would a Gtx 570 push it?

How can Asus claim 14c cooler than reference. What kind of voodoo magic did they do?!

I know on the 6870 all they did was change the cover from plastic to aluminum and claimed it was like 10c cooler. I highly doubt it.

I would really like to know how they did that. Anyone know what makes the Asus that much better?

Of course it's ok, but if you can overclock, don't hesitate ! This is why we are alos on this OCN site. Look at some benchmarks between CPU's and your's (Compression Divx and Crysis (Sorry texts in french) :

Tempted to go intel and 460 sli but would need another motherboard and memory module for triple-channel. Not to mention the cost of the actual chip

Hang on - i'll do some preliminary sums:

Buy 570 £300+ 1090t £160 = £460
Buy Asus Gene III £140 + extra indentical ram module £50 + extra gtx 460 £150 + i5/i7 £200 = £540.

+ sell 955 ~£90
+ sell 750w artic power psu ~£30
+ sell 2x2gb hyperx cl7 ram ~£40-50
+ sell artic freezer pro 7 rev.2 (tempted to throw the damn thing in the trash tbh, piece of crap)
+ sell current motherboard if going intel ~£40-50
+ sell gtx 460 if sticking with am3 or going 570 with intel ~£100

1090t + 570 = ~£280
Intel + 460 sli = ~£330
Intel + 570 = ~£400

I think my math is right lol

Very close call but a little too expensive for intel + 570. And never run sli before. Plus i'm running micro-atx so one card is probably better/smoother/cooler/safer right!

I love Asus and my second choice would be Evga when it comes to Nvidia cards. Both have great warranties. I had to RMA 2 Asus GPUs in the past and they were top notch.
