Nvidia Surround 2D

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

I've been planning to run 2D surround for a while now, but after seeing some benchmarks, (I have a GTX 460 SLI system) it looks like my 768mb version won't cut it. I've been wanting to upgrade, but not sure what to upgrade to. Originally I was going to get 570's SLI, but I don't know if they have enough vram to run 3 screens. (Only 1280mb.) I am now thinking about getting the 2gb version of the 560 Ti. Which one should I get?

Thanks!

So the 570 SLI has enough vram to run 3screens?

I'm in the same boat as you. Looking to either get 2 570s or 2 of the 560s 2GBs.

The 570s will let you tri-sli in the future but the 560s obviously have more vram and cost less.

I am leaning towards 570s myself but more due to the fact that I might tri-sli in the future and I don't have any experience with Palit and the 560 2GB.

Does anyone know if a higher vram version of the 570 will come out? Since there's a 2gb 560 and a 3gb 580, I'm wondering if they will do the same to the 570.
