TwilightRavens The thing is I am buying it from a co-worker, if its not fully functional I don’t have to pay and yeah 750 ti’s aren’t that cheap and my budget is no higher than $50 unfortunately (its all I have to spend at the moment) i’d love to get my hands on a 580 but cheapest I have seen for one is like $120.

-edit: Okay so the 570 is a no go, it crashes when I run any stress test on it at stock setting so I am to assume that the GPU is dying, increased my budget a bit and have a GTX 660 on the way. Anyway thanks for the help, really appreciate it.

mapesdhs Honestly for that much you really ought to be able to bag a GTX 580, with more RAM and usefully quicker by default. Btw, in terms of power consumption and heat, I found the GTX 750 Ti to be often about the same speed or just a bit less than a 580, but I suspect a 750 Ti would not be as cheap as a 570 or 580, though it would certainly be kinder on your energy bill and thus might be a better investment if you planned on using it for a while (much quieter too).

TwilightRavens So I know this thread may have died a while ago, but what kind of clocks can you expect on average from a 1.28GB GTX 570 (reference model) and would it be worth paying $45 for this late in the game as a stop gap GPU for an old C2Q rig? Or can anyone recommend a good aftermarket air cooler for a reference 570? I've heard stories of Fermi being hot but haven't actually experienced it as I don' have the card yet.

mapesdhs Yep, always worth a try for sure! Ya never know. 8)

IcedFREELANCER Thanks for a reply rolleyes.gif I was just thinking about using it as a 2nd card for PhysX and such in my PC (as my primary one is gtx980 at this moment). After some thoughts I'll try to resurrect it by some arguable "heating" methods , but I think it's still worth a try before completely thowing it into a trash bin biggrin.gif

mapesdhs With a situation like that, personally I'd just declare it dead and seek a replacement or upgrade. Used 560s should be diddly by now (560 Ti aswell, a worthy step up over the 560 which is just a rebranded 460), or I have an EVGA 580 3GB I can do for 65 UKP + shipping (I bought ten units for CUDA research, but I don't need them anymore).

Or there's the 560 in my gf's PC. biggrin.gif For a while I've been pondering replacing it with a 750 Ti or somesuch.

IcedFREELANCER Glad this thread isn't completely deserted yet.
Found my old Inno3D GTX 560. It stopped working awhile ago, but I got upgraded and didn't care much. Now I want to resurrect it but have no clue where to start. I OC'ed it a little (and flashed STABLE OC into its BIOS) and it was working with a bit high temps but within "safe boundaries" - like 90-92C under load in Furmark. One day during normal gaming my screen blinked a couple of times and my screen went completely dark. Thing is, when system is turned on , I can see its cooling working fine but no signs of life are seen. The card itself not showing up in BIOS nor in device manager in Windows. As I wanted at least reflash stock bios to ressurect card, is there any way to do that ? Really desperate to revive it really

I have a 3970X aswell. biggrin.gif Doesn't really gain much over the 3930K, have to say.

Cheap to bag a 3930K these days; it's the mbds that are hard to find, for sensible money anyway. Bidding on ebay has almost doubled in two years in some cases, eg. I upgraded my brother's PC to X79 via used parts 2 years ago (used to be a P55), won a P9X79 Deluxe locally for 75 (a virtually new board, and a 3930K for it was about 125), but recently a normal auction for this model mbd went for 195, while a couple of BIN listings sold ok for 280! I count myself lucky I was able to get two Rampage IV Extremes for 113 each a coupla years ago, along with several P9X79 WS boards (about 125 each) and two P9X79-E WS boards (about 200 each). Finding the same stuff today is almost impossible.

Note that there are some US listings for P9X79 WS boards, but they're not normal boards, beware. Some kind of weird custom BIOS setup.

That's actually a problem now with FS, it's succumbing to the same CPU skewing as 3DMark11; one has to compare Graphics scores rather than rely on Overall scores.

mapesdhs I think the 780 Ti does somewhat better when it comes to CUDA, for which it's exactly twice as fast as a GTX 580, so a great solution for budget pro users, eg. something like a Quadro K5000 and 3x GTX 780 Ti is pretty sweet (of course, Titan Blacks would be better, but they still carry considerable value). The VRAM is limited, but that's the tradeoff. In FLOPs terms, a good low cost way of achieving fast render times without busting the bank. As for gaming, I guess to an extent the 980 kinda caught up with the 780 Ti (varies). In searching for 780 Ti and Titan cards, the only thing I found disappointing was the sheer number of them which have rather low base clocks, especially the Titan/Blacks; people bid quite a lot more when a 1GHz Black shows up.

Hmm, still, I'd like to test the 780 Ti with the 6850K, could be interesting. Never enough hours in the day...

Cool! 8)

Interesting to compare btw:


And this one will make you laugh (it's the record for any P55 system):


Damn, I thought the 780ti could score a bit better even when near stock? http://www.3dmark.com/fs/11228635 here's my 780 @1320Mhz /offtopic biggrin.gif
