See how the X6 looses to the x4 with just 1 card.

Now look here

http://www.overclock.net/ati/894798-...ssfirex-2.html

Look at post 22 and 25, notice the difference in the scores. Thats comparing my old amd system (dual 6870s) with an intel system with dual 6870s.
What are they comparing in that link? Are the CPU's actually doing the rendering? If so then that is irrelevant to what we are talking about...
That is a Phenom II x4 CPU, the 1055T has 6 cores.

And ive already had sli on my board, its not hindered by my processor ran fine.
Well, that AMD proc is behind 1st gen i7s, but with your OC I imagine it would be "good enough" for any games in the next 2 years

If you really want to get the most performance for your money, SLI 560s for $500 and call it a day. They'll blow a single 580 out of the water and you have an extra 50 to take the wife/gf out

No they (xbit) are using a 6970 for the rendering. If you noticed the x4 BEAT the x6 on every test but 2 even the the difference was less than 2fps when the x6 did win. The 2 extra cores dont matter when it comes to gaming. The benchmarks show this.

Also judging by the monitor that the OP has I'm guessing its 1680x1050 am I right?

Hmm, I guess you're right. I always thought the more cores the more the CPU could send to the GPU at one time. Thanks for the info, I'll keep that in mind the next time I give help around here. +Rep for the info.

I still think he should go with the 580 over Sandy Bridge though. He will see a bigger performance increase from the 580 over Sandy Bridge. Also like someone else said Bulldozer is around the corner and should give a nice performance increase over the 1055T.

Depending if his monitor is what I guessed I think he should get SB seeing as a 580 is complete overkill for 1680x1050 (although this is OCN so that is ok and all). If it is that res though he would still see a huge increase in games and then would have money to spare by getting SB. Then maybe sell the 470 and with that + the cash left over get a 570 which should still be more than enough for that res. Hell I can max everything at 1920x1080 with mine.


BTW I'm from Reading originally, got moved to AK cause of the army. And thanks for my 100th rep.

Get the Sandy Bridge processor. They are wicked fast, reasonably priced, and will give you your biggest bang for the buck, not a video card that gives you some small percentage upgrade.

The thing is I have a 1680x1050 monitor and I still have trouble maxing some games (by some I mean have crysis on all the highest settings with x4 AA) and I have 2 460's which beat a 580 any day. I was thinking he could sell his 470 too but apparently he is giving it to a friend so that is no longer an option.

Oh yeah? My roommate is from Reading, well birdsboro but close enough.

Considering the 470 is within like 10% of the 570 he would still get really good fps just by keeping his card and getting SB.

its 1920 x200 monitor and the x4 beat the x6 cause of clocks from the factory it has higher clocks.

clock for clock 6core beats amd 4 cores i know that from exp with them

But not nearly as much as he would by getting a 580, I think you are forgetting to factor in the fact that his 1055T is overclocked to 4.11Ghz. Even if Sandy Bridge beats the 1055T at stock clocks they will be on par overclocked. There is a point where the CPU only does so much after it stops affecting gaming performance. Sure that overclock for sandy bridge might be much lower then it would be for the 1055T (i.e. sandy bridge only needs to reach 3.6Ghz before it stops adding performance where the 1055 will need 3.8Ghz) but the 1055T can still get there with ease.
