Should I Step up to a GTX 570?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I am tempted to step up a gtx 460 for a gtx 570. However, I have my concerns about people frying their 570s from overclocking. Now I would like to overclock so would people recommend that I go for it? Does anyone have any experience or know if EVGA's 570s are good? The reason I picked a 570 is for it's value over the 580.

Or should I just grab a 580 instead?
TIA.

The 570 is a super card, it can play everything at max graphs and it overclocks greatly.
Mine is running at 900 core 1800 shader memory 975 and 1.075 volts and the scores i get in 3dmark 11 and vantage are way superior than a gtx 580(scores P6226) EVGA makes one of the best cards on the market and there warranty and custom support are great, it all depends on the quality of the card you get and equal cards can reach very different overclocks. The EVGA GTX 570 is very good priced for the performance it offers, its a good overclocker and its very sillent. If you want to play crysis 2 or metro 2033 with everything cranked up to the max this is the you need, Go for it.

If you have the space get the 3 slot Asus GTX 570 (and if you arent planning on SLI) The Asus GTX 570 DirectCU II is very quiet and cool and it is made with higher quality components. My Review with my impressions on it if you are interested.

But no matter what you do, just don't turn off the OCP (Over Current Protection) through GPU-Z. and go easy on the Furmark tests.

hm, If I do get it, it will be put under water, as for Asus it isn't really a choice as I am stepping up from a older card (saves me a fair amount of cash). It's just reading about people burning their cards out due to OC'ing them, and naturally cause I am going to OC, Im just thinking whether I should avoid the risk completely and go for a 580 or just the 570 and OC.

why?? they are both dx11 cards i just bought my gtx460 and im happy with it, its a nice upgrade from an 8800gt. You can max crysis 2 with my sig system and it wont drop below 30 although you wont get constant 60fps. Its up to you but i wait for at least the next generation 600 series to upgrade the card.

the non reference Asus is not a good choice? because you dont have room I assume?
And you can overclock the cards as long as you dont turn off the OCP... not touch the memory clock speeds it seems.

Its not a good choice because hes going through EVGA Step-up where it will cost him significantly less to get the 570.

OP get the 570 I love mine, dont worry about the "frying" thing. If you go to the thread and read what they where doing (most had OCP OFF or they had flashed the bios and put even more voltage through them). Things like that happen when a card gets pushed past its limits. I ran mine at 1.1v 950 core through OCCT and tons of benchmarks and my card still works fine. Just know your limits and you wont have to worry about it. Its a really great card and will be a nice improvement from you 460.

Non ref pcbs are a bit of a pain to put under water.

I stepped-up from the GTX460 to the GTX570 and love it. I believe I'm sitting comfortably at 900/2000 @ 1.05 and have been folding without issue. Go for it, in the end it'll be worth it.
