No he is right. Fermi cards performs worse than AMD cards in Crysis. A GTX 470 loses to a 5770 in Crysis. It is mind boggling.

You asking on OCN about overkill lol?

You should be fine with that card for awhile! When its not enough you could always add another in SLI later on down the road aswell!

I think OP would have been fine with an overclocked 570. They perform on par or better in several instances depending on how far you take the clocks.

Rox, I've been on ATI for the past year and a half, and I can honestly say I've been pretty miserable. I prefer Nvidia drivers and support much more and I don't think I'll ever go back to ATI at this point simply because of my experience. I don't want to sound biased, because my 5870 has been doing a fantastic job for the most part, but I'll tell you a couple of issues I had with my ATI experience.

ATI has yet to fix the display driver from crashing when utilizing shockwave flash with hardware acceleration on. ATI's UVD also down clocks your video card while playing media even if you've got a game open.

Stuff that should have been addressed and fixed a long time ago seems to always go unanswered on the official forums. The only fix is to "disable hardware acceleration". I'm tired of just waiting on real fixes.

It crashes because you overclock. If you return the clocks to stock in 2D mode, Flash won't crash.

What? I can't tell if you're just joking around or these benchmarks are wrong.

I didn't overclock at all. In fact, I REALLY wish I could overclock this card. It hasn't ever been stable, even a 20 mhz increase on the core causes grey screens.

Even if your statement was correct, that just goes to show how annoying the experience with ATI can be. I shouldn't be forced to set stuff to stock just so that I can avoid my display drivers from crashing while watching youtube videos.

I dont get why noone considers the gtx480 when they can be had for less than $300 bucks and overclocked come close to gtx580 if not surpass it. Until they are no longer available online or on craigslist I really dont see a reason to get a gtx580 until their price drops below $400 bucks. I have two in Sli and heat and noise is never an issue.
