GTX 580 on 1680 x 1050

I have a Gigabyte 470 SOC, and I'm not planning on getting a GTX 580 :pt1cable: , but I was just wondering how many years it would last on that resolution? I have an i7-950 ( OC'ed to 4.0 ) and 4gb of ram.

  1. I would think that you should be good for at least a couple of 3 years at that res. I use mine at 1920x1200 and it runs everything I can throw at it. I haven't even overclocked it yet! And from the reviews I read it can easily overclock to GTX480 speeds. And the best part of it all is the quietness of the cooler!
  2. you're probably good at that res for 2 years at high settings, maybe another 2 years at medium and another year at low res... so liek a 5 year lifespan if you're willing to keep using it for the long haul .. beats mine.. my low end 8500gt only made it 2 and a half... btu it was under 50 bucks and overclocked heavily :D
  3. Actually, I was wondering how long the 580 would last at 1680 x 1050..Sorry, I worded the question wrong. :sweat:
  4. Best answer
    I'd probably add another year into the equation split between high to mid end...

    2 1/2 high, 2 1/2 medium then 1 year low by then 6 years down the road on chip gpu's will be better than it
