Please help me decide.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello my current setup is as follows

3x GTX 260 Core 216
4GB DDR3 1600 CL 9
i7 920 @ 3.2 OC
EVGA x58 SLI LE
1100W XION PSU

I was curious if it would be effective performance wise and a good investment to get a GTX 570 rather than run 3 way SLI 260's, 260's were great cards during their time but they seem to start struggling with new games like Just Cause 2 on higher resolutions, and frames drop as low as 25 in Bad Company 2 without low-medium settings, would it better performance to use a single 570 as opposed to 3 260's? plus the single 570 i get now leaves room for SLI later when prices drop a year or so from now (HOPEFULLY ) Dx11 I do not care about, though tesselation I would enjoy seeing done properly in newer games. Help me decide?

You won't get much out of that card with tesselation on.

Suffice to say Metro 203 is unplayable in DX11 (30+ FPS is my definition of playable) and AVP is not really worth buying a new card.

I'd say go for GTX 570, single GPU, new drivers support and tri-SLI might not even work in all current or future games.

If you don't care about DX 11 and if you don't need tesselation then the GTX 570 should run any game you throw at it at max details.

Get a GTX580! It's the best DX11 card right now.
