On monday I was going to order new rig and I wanted to buy GTX570 OR Radeon HD6970. I was more in favour of 570 (due to not playing with uber res) but then I read that they are prone to dying and come here to ask for help.
But here is the thing, I DO NOT want to overclock at all or mess with the voltages.
Should I be ok on stock everything with 570 or I would be better off with HD6970? At my place they have basically the exact same price.

If someone could give me an advice, I would greatly appreciate it.
The reference GTX 570's don't just die, it was happening with over clocks that required higher voltage. The higher voltage that went to far was killing the cards.

They just don't die, it's a myth people that repeated as wrong info on this site. There are tons of 570's out there that are doing just fine by many 'regular' owners who don't over clock thier cards.

On a single monitor the 1.2GB 570 or the 2.0GB 6970 will serve you fine. They both are very similar in performance. Especially if your not over clockiing. Get what you like.





Those are just two of the more intense games out there today of many but an example at even higher res how similar they are. There are many games that they trade blows back and forth and where one wins the other dosen't lose by much, vice versa.

If your thinking of going with muliple monitors the AMD can run three, where Nvidia can only run two.

If your thinking of getting a 120Hz monitor for 3D games and watching 3D movies then go with Nvidia they do it much better.

If your not going to do either then pick what you think you'd like best, no wrong answer bud. Good luck.

Thank you very much for your detailed post!

As of right now I'm running a single monitor @ 1680x1050 (I know, this would be considered low by today standards) and resolution around 2500x1600 is a big no no at this time. I also don't plan on Eyeinfinity / 3DVision so I guess I can't go wrong either way as you said.

I was slightly more in favour of the GTX570 but like I said, I was scared about the aforementioned reports.
Since I don't want to overclock anything, I guess I will be safe with the 570.

Thank you again, for the detailed response.

Cheers.

Anyone have this card?
Is this a good card for overclocking..?

Zotac is a good brand, you should be fine with that card

Sup guys,

I am going to be buying 2 Gainward GTX 570's today and do intend to overclock, these ones here specifically: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?...ducts_id=16990

AFAIK they are probably reference PCBs with obvious non reference cooling.

At the moment I have GTX 460s with a nice overclock, with the 570s I will want to get around +150MHz on the core and around 200MHz on the memory, voltage at 1.1 as this seems to be fairly safe from what I can read.

The threads about cards dying from overclocking/overvolting are all from the start of the year so it's hard to know what's relevant.

Obviously it's impossible to say for certain, but with the overclock I mentioned above would it be safe to assume that it should work ok (as in, the card not dying) as long as temps, airflow etc. are all acceptable?

Cheers for any advice.

Wow thats good card Aaron Does it still stable untill now? I just run for aweek 945/1100 1.1volt and I hope it can stay normal and safe

I have two MSI Twin Frozr II GTX 570s in SLI. I'm currently at 800mhz with 1.050v. I'm not looking for a massive OC but enough to make a small difference.

what should I be avoiding so I don't kill these cards. I purchased them used and have them registered on MSI website but don't have proof of purchase so I don't think I'm covered by warranty.

Hi Modus we have same card ... its ok if you dont want to OC higher, at 1.05volt I can hit 900/1100 stable.

Keeps the temps generally <85* althout Nvidia allows for a bit over 90* according to their specs. And up to 1.1v is a safe voltage, some people go higher, but that's most people's stopping point.

Doesn't MSI warranty via serial number?

I have a PNY gtx 570 1.25gb card, Im running it at 800mhz core on stock volts, I wish there was a genuine known safe limit for vcore with these cards, as apposed to people guessing.

This card is from spring 2011 AFAIK
