GTX 480 or GTX 570, which to get? - Page 4

That is not true. I gained 10fps in the Metro benchmark thread from going from a 6870 overclocked to 975mhz to a stock vanilla GTX 570.

That gap only widened when overclocked. Gaining 3 more fps when clocking at 797mhz (stock SC clocks) and another 3 when going to 850mhz.

For a total gain of around 15 FPS over the 6870. If you check the Metro benchmark thread you will see that a 570 overclocked to 850 will net you 51.5 fps whereas a 6870 CFX will net 70. So since the crossfire scaling is nearly 100% on the 6870s you can see that even at 1000core the 6870 will still only produce around 35fps. Which is what I was seeing.

And as you may or may not realize 15 fps in a game like Metro 2033 will make a night and day difference towards playable framerates at max settings.

GTX 570, Its cooler, has more OC potential, and consumes less power.

if their is a big difference in price get the cheapest one

I don't really care about the tempature that the 480 give's off, as long as I have suffienct cooling in my case, it should be all good, Especially with 2 side case fan's blowing over the GTX 480...

Anyway's I think I will buy the GTX 480 due to it being on par with the 570 and there's not much noticeable difference in FPS in games either...

+rep to all for helping, many thanks all

Good luck with your new card! The 480's a beast of a card. Give it hell!

Yeah, Can't wait to see the difference going from a ATI 6870 to a Geforce GTX 480... especially it's my first time for Nvidia as well lol... Can't wait to see PhysX in action....

I also hoping the there will be better Blu-Ray playback support on Nvidia cards as I had hell trying to watch (Star Trek Blu-Ray version) on my 6870... picture was like watching a video cassete through a HDMI cable... :/

FPS in games, they perform very similarly, almost exactly equal in some benchies/games, however, the fact that 570 overclocks much higher, runs less hot, quieter imo, just convinced me to buy the 570.
Im very happy with my choice and im sure u will be too

Just dont disable any throttling thing, as I've heard it can kill the card and does not affect performance in games/benchmarks, except for Furmark

EDIT: i heard ur buying the 480

Yeah, but don't it sound like Nvidia are putting cheap part's on the 500 series? which made them use the throttleing feature? to protect the components?
