Overkill for 1 GTX580 for me? - Page 10

post #91 of 128
There is a new GTX 580 3GB version out yesterday by EVGA will do a better job than the AMD 6970 2Gb version for larger resolution out now.

If you run out of VRAM, the extra data will spill over onto your HD cache, which is several times slower than your gpu VRAM. Hence, your performance absolutely tanks (ie you could drop from 60+fps to 1-3 fps).

That said, 1.5GB is more than enough for 1200p. You don't really run into VRAM requirements higher than that until 1600p and surround setups.

You can also have different programs up on different screens while working. Like IE9 on one, a word program on the other etc....working simultaneously.
Lolwut?

No no, of course not. This is what I'm talking about:

I'm planning to get this bad boy either this month or the next one
Honestly, I don't like multi-monitor setups. This is almost as extreme as you can go with a single-monitor setup (well, except for the U3011, but I need 16:9 for movies and PS3)

I've gone up to a max of 1551MB VRAM usage at 2560x1440p thus far in one title. Several games can certainly exceed 1.5GB @1600p as well, depending on settings.

I thought it use system RAM first, then HDD

Where have I heard this before...

Lol'd. Looks like you were expecting something else. 580 is a bad card price/performance wise.

If you're looking into spending money, I'd ghet 6950 CF. Even at stock they trump 570 SLI or are just as good + more VRAM.

Same could be said about Nvidia optimized games. At least AMD's not dirty like Nvidia.

Either a GTX 570 or 580 would suffice for most games at that resolution. I just used EVGA's Step Up program to upgrade from a GTX 570 to a 580 because I wanted more power.

Probably, if you're staying high with AA. As far as I know, the bigger resolutions you have, the less anti-alias you need.
