Yeah I will figure that out later and start another thread thanks so far

So there is nothing to equal GTX 295 quad except 570 SLI ..kinda lol^^

For the price you bought your 295s back then, much better cards can be had today. So it's not "lol", just a bad comparison.

Yes, but that was not the point
570 SLI it is!

I just looked at some results and right now I am not sure if 570 SLI has really that big of an advantage over 560 SLI ?

560 SLI achieve the exact same results.
Also both are still inferior to my 295 Quad setup judging by the vantage results since real gaming results are very hard to compare.

Hmmm....The most important thing to me is which card is gonna sell best when I need to get rid of them for Kepler....and in my experience 295´s sell best .
What do you think?

Is it really worth it spending the extra money for 570 SLI? or will 560 SLI be just as fine?
Also which cards will sell best later on???

Well the GTX 480 deal I linked to comes to $239 for each GTX 480 after all rebates

I personally would choose GTX 480s over GTX 570s. The one I linked to seems to have a good cooler too.

Oh a Kung Pow thread.
*grabs popcorn*

I 2nd the 480's that saulin suggested. Your marketing skills could net you a profit on them when you dump them for Kepler. Unless you can't get them in your country, of course.

Scientific long term studies have shown that microwave popcorn induces colen cancer by 15% so you might wanna grab an apple

Yap 570´s will probably sell better than 480´s once I will drop them.
On the other hand I sold my GTX 295´s for 720$ so there are still idiots out there

I am not sure what to do right now...I looked around ebay and some second hand shops ....they all sell the 570 only max 7% off the original price and for me that is not worth buying a card that does not guarantee full functionality.
So it will be the original for sure.

I just thought that if I got a single 580 the resell value would be much closer to the orginally spent value than with all the others.

Example:500€ for a single 580....could be resold for minimum 400€
500€ for 560 SLI or 570 ....nobody will ever buy them for 400€ ...+ it will be that much harder to sell both cards because not everybody will buy SLI....and a single 560 or 570 will sell even worse ...so that is something to consider right now.

The performance of a 580 max overclock wouldn´t even be close to a 295 Quad setup though and certainly not a 570 SLI setup.

hmmmm very hard....

560 SLI:+ cheaper,- inferior performance,- bad resell value , -
570 SLI:- more expensive, + superior performance , -/+ unsure resell value
480 SLI:just like the 570 except the very bad resell value because nobody likes a too outdated single card.

580:+just about the budget limit, - highly inferior performance even if overclocked,+very good resell value


One factor was left out : Overclocking ability ...I think that cannot be assigned as pro or contra because it is the most unsure thing about hardware and should not be decisive about anything.

It is impossible to know if a card will be able to overclock at my desired speeds, and if it will be able to do that without a volt mod to keep temps in check.

But I will say this....570 SLI max oc will draw to much power for my taste,they will get too hot due to my unwillingness of buying a waterblock for it and they won´t clock as high as a 580.

Same thing with all SLI solutions listed above.

Then I again look upon the 580.....max overclocked it won´t be that hot because it is only a single card with the most effective vapor chamber inbuilt.
Also it´s resell value will be amazing so hmm...

Do you guys think a single 580 will sell better than two 560´s or 570´s in 6 months?
Also what decision should I make performancewise?

I use the microwave like daily. I should probably stop.

Any spesific reason you aren't considering 6950 CF? Scales extremely well in CF and is equal to 570 GTX (sometimes wins and sometimes loses). And then take into consideration the new 11.4 drivers which improves performance by significant amounts in a lot of games.

+ potential unlock if desired.

I haven´t really AMD yet but you are right why not^^.

Would it be possible to post some proof when 6950 CF beats 570 SLI ?

You can expect even better performance with 11.4 drivers.

The 570 is overall slightly faster, but it only pulls ahead significantly when the FPS is already more than high enough. Crank up the res and the 6950 will be even better.
