GTX580 SLI

SLI = less problems then 3 way sli

less power consumption less hit...


and if you get some much graphic power better to go with 1.5GB memory then 1.2GB...
but the GTX570 3WAY SLI will be stronger then the GTX580 SLI
My build :)

i have no doubt that 3 cards would over-power 2. for the money, 3 570's make more sense over 2 580's. however, 3 570's will never = 3 580's.

3X GTX 570's only stretch their leg with like 2+ 30" monitor's..

my tri SLi set up's had this issue. like 3X 9800gtx+'s and my 3X GTX 280's

but no eyefinity or surround lol

advice coming from an alienware owner? thinking.gif

I kid, I kid.

The 580s are better for higher res and 3d vision cause of the VRAM plus if you have to sell, you sell two and you can get a third later


go for it biggrin.gif

first off, eff you for the alienware comment lol. biggrin.gif

second, you are comparing 3gb vram from the 2 580's to the 3.6gb vram from the 3 570's. how do you figure the 580's are better in that regard?

did you seriously just say that a 1.2GB setup vs a 1.5GB setup wins lol

Not much faster actually. Plus the less ram is a loss, plus a third 580 later is ideal.

the memory in SLI\CF isnt added

GTX580 SLI only have 1.5GB not 3GB

and GTX570 way SLI have 1.2GB ...


the GTX570 WAY SLI will be around 20% faster...
