GTX 580 SLI vs Gainward GTX 580 Phantom 3gig - Page 2

post #11 of 16
I'm thinking of getting another 580 for my build I strictly run @ 2560x1600. Really all I'd run into problems with is basically metro 2033 @ higher AA settings and DX11 settings correct? It's either that or wait a year for new card but i really want eye candy now

Why not get two phantoms in sli ?
At least for me in germany it would cost about the same as getting a galaxy or whatever with less vram. Besides that the phantoms look sexy.

Doesn't look sexy to me. Sweet card though!

Looks very sexy to me!

I'm now wondering whether to buy a PNY 580 for 360e or Phantom 580 3GB for 410e... I know the RAM is useless for me but is the cooler worth it? I just want it to be as silent as possible under load and Accelero Xtreme Pro would cost about 60e anyways.
