gtx570 or 560?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
been thinking about upgrading my graphics, i'd like to stick with the nvidia line, might go 3d in the future
anyways, my original thought was the gtx570, but now that 560 has come out, the question is really just...does gtx570 justify its extra 100quid price tag over 560?
i dont really go crazy on overclocking graphics, i think the small performance gain is not worth the extra heat or power draw, i can live without the extra 5-10fps, bar crysis and metro, i like my system to be nice and cool.
not really considering sli at the moment, perhaps one or two years down the line.
any suggestions folks

Man, I would go GTX 570. It would be a slight upgrade from your current card, and I haven't looked it up, but from what I here the 5XX cards are much better on power and heat.

Picking up a 2nd 470 would give the absolute largest performance increase.

Since you're only interested in a single card upgrade though, going from a 470 to a 560 is really a sidegrade. You won't get noticeable performance gains.

Really the only single card that would even be a moderate upgrade would be a 580 tbh. Kinda pointless to upgrade from a 400 to 500 series imo, but it's your money.

Going from GTX 470 to GTX 560 is just stupid, go for a GTX 580 or GTX 470 SLI

^ this.
From your card to a 560 thats like 5-9% increase. Going to a 570 is more of a 15-20%.
So either sli ur 470, buy a 580, or simply OC your 470.

i swapped from 4870x2 to Msi Gtx570 and i've gotta say the temps on this card are brilliant, stock cooler with my fan profile the highest i've reached is 61c. My house is pretty warm, mrs and 3 kids make sure of that!
To be honest with you, if it was me i'd buy another 470 and sli them!

Oddly speaking, GTX 560 Ti is nothing really special. It replaces the GTX 470. So if you had a money to spent something more expensive, GTX 570 is a better choice.

ok, so im getting the impression 560 is pointless, although if i sell my 470, then its not too bad right? 580 is a bit out of my budget saddly. so that leaves the 570 i guess...470sli really doesnt appeal to me...they're gonna burn a hole in my motherboard!
