Gtx570?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Was thinking about upgrading my 6870 to a GTX570. Would that be a big increase at 1920x1200 for something like crysis 2? I would give my 6870 to my Dad...

Good luck

Edit: I hope comparison charts help you to decide, I don't know how are the prices for you. You decide if it's worth it.

It wouldn't be that much of an improvement. Definitely you would get a gain but not nearly worth the money for a 570.

A fairly significant upgrade imo. I guess it's more a question of whether the extra performance is worth the 300+ price tag to you.

False. I too upgraded from a 6870 OC'd to 975/1125 and the difference was clearly noticeable. Not to mention my ears stopped bleeding from the raucous fan noise the 6870 has.

If you look at reviews you see around 5 FPS difference in Metro 2033 @ 1920x 1200 but what a graph doesn't show you is how consistent the 570 is when push comes to shove. Overall it just felt like a step in the right direction, especially when it came to cooling and fan noise.

Also OP it appears that you already have a GTX 570 in your sig rig. Are you asking if you should get another?

Well I sold a few old things of mine for $140. So I basically paid only about $200 out of pocket. What I like about this model is, its shorter than a normal 570 but about 1 full inch and its quieter much quieter and it cools better too and it has displayport for my U2410..
