i have already stated this in my earlier post.......
even if it does not unlock its a pretty good card at that price point....wouldn't u agree.....

Ok well since I cant put this together till I get back home at the end of the month I will hold out to see what the 560 can do

Right now the 570 does look good. If the 560 flops I will splurge and grab the 570

Which brands are making the most noise these days? I am a huge EVGA fan so not sure what kind of input in this department would sway me but I like to hear all sides lol.

The only reason I dont go with the HD is because I hate ATI... I have had 2 card go belly up on me in the past and their customer support was horrible in getting the cards replaced.

for nvidia my preference is like this:
evga
msi
gigabyte
asus
zotac
sparkle and palit share same spot.....

i especially love msi's non reference coolers and pcb's but that is just my opinion.....

359 can get you a nice GTX570
EVGA or MSI
They are all preference board right now, so just focus on the warranty.

Definitely take a look at the 560, I would not go out and buy anything until that comes out if you want to get the best bang for your buck.

If for some reason you went with a multi-card setup you could SLI 460s, but I would not recommend CFX from ATI, if you go ATI stick with a single card for now.

GTX 570 will rape a GTX 460 which is old tech in these day standards

Funny thing is, which i see most here not pointing out, is that the 460 and the 560 are the same core with just a different number of cores enabled. They are both based on the gf104 core.

To be perfectly honest the only real big difference between the upper end 4xx series and 5xx series, aka the 470,480 and 570,580 is the amount of power used.

Don't be fooled by numbers

now before people go nuts, I am not saying they are better, just that once the 560's come out 460's will likely take another price hit. For $300 ($150-160 each) you can get some great performance for the price.

The only thing that would come into play is was resolution your monitor is, if it's 1920 then you are golden, but any larger and you get limited by the 1gb.
People are jumping on bandwagon about 560s, I've been keeping an eye on them and the performance gain will be nice, but for the price... im not so sure. They are expected in the $240-280 range... so figure SLI would put you ahead of a single GTX 580, but at a cost of $480-550

460's overclocked and SLI = ~stock 580 but for like 150 a piece right now.

I had to jump when I saw the Open Box MSi Cyclone 460s for 155 a piece the other night and should have them tomorrow along with my p67/2600k... honestly with a good overclocker your getting GTX580 performance for $200 less than a 580. If you get back clockers... your still beating a GTX 480/570 for less than they cost.

The only people ruling out GTX460s right now are the ones that can afford to spend the $$.

Yeah..

GTX 470/480 = GF100
GTX 460 = GF104

GTX570/580 = GF110
GTX 560 = GF114

The GF110 and GF114 are just upgraded GF100's and GF104's heh.

I really don't think it is appropriate to compare the performance of 1 GPU to a 2 GPU setup because they are so many inherent disadvantages in a multi setup that an FPS-FPS comparison forgets to inspect key elements of performance.

2x460s would cost a little more than a 570 and might perform similarly to a single 580, but I would much rather have 1 570 in my machine when compared to 2x460s.
