EVGA GeForce GTX 580

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,

i am looking at buying a new graphics card and have been looking at EVGA GeForce GTX 580 FTW Hydro Copper 2 problem is its $300 more to buy it in Australia regardless of the fact that our dollar is on parody with the USD..

so i have 2 questions i guess does anyone know of any US online store that ship internationally (i have been googling but i haven't found anything yet.)

if not what do you guys think of the EK-FC6970 Acetal
Edit: http://www.ekwaterblocks.com/shop/bl...al-nickel.html
on a EVGA GeForce GTX 580 Superclocked

still feels like im being ripped off since the cost of the Superclocked + the cooler are about the same price of the Hydro...

thanks,

I'd just buy the cheapest stock 580 and a separate water block if I were in your shoes.

Ask a member to buy and ship the card to you. Might be closer to $800 after shipping costs and insurance...

I might go Hydro Copper 2 just to examine the hype regarding the Swiftech micro pin matrix design...

thanks,
I hope you would not buy the 6970 waterblock over a 580 one for a GTX 580...

Lol.

It seems like the EK site has it backwards as I see you clicked on Nvidia but that's a block for the AMD 6970. Lol.

^That's the one you would want.

You might want to also try to get your hands on the HydroCopper2 VGA BIOS as well.
