Step-Up to a GTX 560 or 570? - Page 2

post #11 of 20
Thread Starter 
I might wind up just sticking with the 570.

I bought this 465 because I figured it had a remote possibility of unlocking. Now, before you get on me for that, I noticed from the back of the card, it had all the VRM in. I bought it and tried to unlock it when I got home (didn't want to mess with taking the cooler off). The BIOS flash was good, as it came up a GTX 470 in GPU-Z, but nothing actually unlocked. Maybe I did something wrong, whatever.

I know most PNY and most MSI GE unlock and it seems Gigabyte has some that unlock as well (there's is one for sale in the marketplace).

Either way, knowing I bought an EVGA card, I could always step-up the card if I wasn't able to unlock it. I wanted to buy either a 560 or 570 soon, so anyway, I get to do that.

The 570 also uses more power, runs hotter, and costs more. When you don't need all the performance that a 570 offers, the gtx 560 is a clear choice, especially since it is $100 less than the 570.

Alright, so I am bumping this thread to let anyone who cares know I canceled my step-up. I was in the running for a GTX 570, but I am going to wait a while before I do this. In fact, the following day after this post, my step-up went through and was available. I didn't expect it to happen so soon. I was figuring it was going to be about two weeks at minimum before I could get the step-up.

I also post to ask more about the 570. I hear horror stories of it not being stable. Something to do with the VRM? Now, while I don't really overclock my video cards, is the 570 going to be okay at stock? (I know this is a stupid question to ask, but when you shell out $350 total for a video card, you want to get a good item.)

the 570, but if not then instead of upgrading to a 560, flash your 465 to a 470, which has similar performance as the 470.

I really didn't want to risk having a $200 paperweight, so I'm going to put it through step-up when I have the extra cash. I basically bought this on a whim. A gamble, if you will.

(I know this is a stupid question to ask, but when you shell out $350 total for a video card, you want to get a good item.)
People who are having horror stories are those that either gave it too much voltage in their benchmarking or disabled the power voltage limiter to take it even further than ever intended by unlocking it. Some just to high of over clocks 24/7 instead of just for benching and cooked their vram.

For every idiot that played with fire there are hundreds that didn't and have great cards. A lot of us know how to overclock without going over the limits of the card. Others don't know what their doing or do it without doing their homework and end up with a toasted card and it can happen to any card. It's not a 570 specific problem.

All those stories of someone turning their 570 or any card into a brick were over clocking. None of the stories were from people who had them at default and one day burned their card out.

Also think about it, everyone here at OCN is an over clock hobbyist so the stories of this happening are going to look frequent. There are thousands of people who don't visit the forums or over clock that play their games at stock clocks that we don't even know about since they aren't even aware this is possible or don't enjoy this or post here. It's the risk we take onto ourselves when we play with our hobby enthusiastically.

Get yourself back on the step up and if your leaning more toward single card solution go 570 or 580. If your up to an SLI then the 560's would be most affordable but may be more problematic as SLI or crossfire sometimes have their bumps. Good luck and let us know what you decide, I'm always curious what others end up doing.

Notice the flames in front of the OCN logo....LOL.

Thanks Arizonian. I'm very aware of the community of which we are in. Heck, my Xeon is sitting at over 4GHz. I'm also someone who doesn't like to lose investments. Sometimes I'll ask a "silly" question like that which makes me sound a bit noobish. I just want quality for my money. So again, thank you.

I put myself back on step-up about an hour ago. Unfortunately, they don't offer the reference 570 anymore. Just the 570 HD. So I am in line for a GTX 560 Ti instead.

I figured you knew that much, you are posting here on OCN after all. That's a solid choice and when you feel your getting behind the 8 ball later down the road it will be easy to add a second card to be back on top again. Two 560's are better than one GTX 580 when two cards can be utilized in SLI.

Happy gaming!
