This sounds kind of "Bogus" to me and with the 85% fan speed(not that much noise), you have a lot of spare room for a few degrees if there is any extra heat produced.

570 is awesome though the 580 makes you future proof for games for like 4-5 years unless we start getting holograms... which even in that case the 580 might be able to handle it putting two of em together into SLI would be intense. Heat may be a problem if your not well vented or you don't have water cooling..

The cards run at full 3D clocks when a second monitor is used, although there are reports that using two identical resolution displays with identical refresh rates do not cause this to happen. However, the majority of the reports that are saying there is an increase in temps and full 3D clocks are ones that are using mismatched displays - myself being one of the ones who've experienced this. It isn't really a big deal as you can always set a 2D profile in MSI Afterburner to downclock to the lowest possible settings allowed in the program, as well as adjusting the fan profile to deal with the heat.

This is not a defect as it is Nvidia's approach to help prevent display corruption and flickering from happening when the clock speeds get too low. This was the same issue that affected ATI/AMD cards not too long ago as well, which prompted many manufacturers to release BIOS updates in order to bring 2D clock speeds up to prevent these issues.

As if the 580 was more future proof then the 570? The 570 isn't *that* far behind a 580.

I know you want to grab an Nvidia card but seriously consider a 6950. I can't deny how powerful that card is. Not to mention that you can flash it to a 6970 with ease. For the price that AMD is selling them and the performance it gives, it's a steal.

If you must go for Nvidia though, the 570 is the best route. If SLI isn't your deal though, save up a bit more and go for a single 580 as it'll easily outperform anything on the ATI side.

I just bought (2) PNY GTX 570's in SLI and I couldn't be happier. I have mind OC'd to 875 core / 1750 shader / 2275 mem using MSI Afterburner. This out performs the STOCK GTX 580 in sli.

Yes you will be able to OC the 580 higher, but unless you want to spend another $300 + probably a better powersupply it's not worth it to get the 580 for maybe another 10fps in games.

My 570's in sli OC'd are well over stock sli 580's.

The 570's also use much less power than the 580's and run cooler.

If the PSU cant handle 580's it prob wont handle 570's as there is not a lot between there power usage.

The cost factor point is certainly a reason for going 570's.

Lol at some of these posts...op, bear in mind that your psu may need to be upgraded as well to sli 580s, but by all means, if you can afford it, buy the 580...you will not regret it.

I saw a review somewhere that CFX 6950 beat SLi 580's.

Your choice.

Lol...this is not a fanboyism thread...dont try and turn it into one by pointing out a review and only quoting the page that has all of 2 games that show a mediocre amd advantage.

To be fair the 6950 CF do very well in some games vs GTX580 SLI but why post that rubbish?
