Silvune a c 87 ) Power supply September 4, 2011 3:22:48 PM The only thing 'wrong' with it is that it doesn't have the tightest voltage regulation. But it is still well inside the specification. tjosborne September 4, 2011 7:08:12 PM ok im leaning towards 2 580's now http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... will i still be ok Best solution Raidur a b ) Power supply September 4, 2011 7:23:26 PM If you want to go Nvidia, go for 2x GTX 570. MUCH BETTER power/performance/price efficient. Unless you have unlimited funds. The GTX 580 is only about 10-15% stronger than the 570, while costing almost twice as much. GTX 580 is a rip off, and is there/priced to be the show-off card. If you already have a CoolerMaster 1000w I'm sure you'll be fine. A quality 1000w continuous is a little overkill, but if you already have the CoolerMaster, you'll be fine. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... tjosborne September 5, 2011 4:44:01 AM ok how future proof would 2 570s be? would they run games maxed for at least two years? and i currently have a msi 6970 twin frozr at factory settings, how would a 570 compare to it? tjosborne September 15, 2011 4:47:56 AM Best answer selected by Tjosborne. obsidian86 a b ) Power supply September 15, 2011 8:55:09 AM the 6970 beats the 570 on most fronts satelliteguy September 15, 2011 9:17:02 AM obsidian86 said:the 6970 beats the 570 on most fronts I agree Obsidian86. 570 is a mess. 6970 would be much better and have great improvement.
