If its for folding any Fermi card will be incredible.
And if its for some gaming as well you might as well go SLI 570s.
If you don't want to spend $700 then SLI 560s is still an amazing setup.

I believe ive made my recommendation clear.
If you are willing to spring the money go with 570s. If you want to save a bit and still get overkill go with 560s.
My only concern about the 560s would be that they have less VRAM and you will probably want that for the amount of monitors you are looking at.

stop talking.

better yet, leave ocn.

OP: Im running eyefinity off a 5850 and the 1gb ram is def not fun. I'd go for the 570 purely for the extra vram, that they are stronger cards than the 560s will just make it that much smoother.

umm, i see for the 570 the core speed and shader and memory isnt as high as like the gigabyte SOC GTX 560 will that make the 560 better then? i really never oc'ed a gpu so far, but its not that hard with msi afterburner i guess

Agreed. Not to mention, If you can afford the 570s you can probably take the increased power consumption and heat generation without a problem.
And afterburner makes GPU overclocking very easy.

The thing is the 570 has more SPUs than the 560 so it can crunch the same amount of data as the 560 at lower speeds.
Think of it like a Quad a and a Dual Core CPU.
The dual core has to run faster to accomplish the same amount as the quad at normal speeds.
The same is true of the 560 and 570. the 570 can accomplish more per cycle than the 560 so it doesnt need to be quite as fast in clock speed.

The same is true between the 460 and the 450 or the 470 and the 460.
The 460 runs at ~750Mhz core. The 450 runs at ~850Mhz core. Is the 450 faster than the 460?
No, because the 460 has more SPUs and a wider memory bus.
The same is true in the relationsip between the 460 and 470 and 560 and 570.

You can buy extended SLI bridges.
But they should be long enough to link the cards together.

And as for the setup its been a LONG time since I used a Dual GPU set so Im not sure if its changed since I last set up SLI.

Even if you could get a 560 over stock 570 levels you still can't ignore the fact that a 570 can overclock pretty well as well.

SLI 570's. With the newest drivers the SLI cable is no longer needed. (MAY BE WRONG CORRECT IF SO)

I doubt it. The bridge eliminates the need for communication/synchronization through the PCIe lane. All intercommunication between the two cards are passed through the bridge.

If you took out the bridge, the cards should still be able to function. However, it bogs down bandwidth on the PCIe slots, reducing performance.

So I don't know if installing new drivers can just overlook that fact.
