GTX 580 - worth it? - Page 4

post #31 of 50
Put the money you would use for the 580 and put it in a savings account. The put a little more each month in it and get Ivy Bridge when it comes out.

Since you only have a 650 watt PSU you can't SLI either. So you down to the single card solution. The GTX 580 needs 600 watts and that only leaves you 50 watts of head room which isn't much. In your case the GTX 570 is better.

If you had a 750 watt PSU I'd say the GTX 580 over the GTX 570 one card solution any day of the week.

I think your best off playing the conservative card. Even an AMD 6950 would fit your needs nicely and gives you space with wattage even more so coming very close to the 570 specs. Up to you.

I'm going one GTX 580 for now and in a couple years if games catch up to my GPU then I will SLI it at a less inexpensive cost instead of going straight for two SLI 580's today at $1040.00. I just picked up mine with tax at retail store instead of Newegg for $567. Ouch but it costs to be king of the hill and probably only a few months before I'm knocked down LOL things move pretty fast.

600 Watt is a Nvidia "general" recommendation for TOTAL system power and its very cautious.

If he has a decent quality 650 watt PSU and only running maybe a few HDD's a I7 etc, he would probably be only about 500watt total max load on a 580 , 150watt ish is good headroom and there is no problem.

650w is just fine for a sinlge GTX 580. That's inflated (600w) power requirements.

For example: playing Mafia 2, all settings maxed @ 5760x1080, my rig is only drawing (according to the meter on my UPS) 680w, and that's peak...it's usually around 625w.

pci-e 1 would be a bit of bottleneck, esecially for a 580, i would be more inclined to spend the money on a new sandy bridge, mobo and cpu, THEN get gtx 570(or kepler 6xx) later(better price/performance ratio)

Get the GTX570 and later SLI them.

I went from a 4870 X2 (apparently faster than a 285) to a GTX 580 SC. I couldn't be happier.

Sooo much wrong info in this thread...
PCI-E 1.0 x16=PCI-E 2.0 x8 = around 2% frame rate loss on a GTX480.

In other words, you will lose a tiny amount of speed from the old slot, but it will work perfectly fine.

Go for the 570 tho, it's a great card and will leave your 285 in the dust for far less money than the 580.

So you can have a super fast processor when GPUs are stilling bottlenecking I7s, what's the point?
