GTX 560 Sli Vs 570

Hi guys,

I am having a PUZZLING debate within my head whether to get the 560 Sli or a single 570.

This is what i am planning on building:


CASE: Coolermaster HAF 912
Motherboard/CPU: Asus P8P67 Pro/i5 2500K
PSU: Corsair AX850
GPU: ??
HDD: G.Skill 120GB SSD
RAM: G-Skill RipJaw CL7 1600Mhz
OPTICAL DRIVE: LG/Samsung 22x Box
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Noctua NH-D14-

Also would the corsair AX850 be substancial enough for me to overclock my CPU and also overclock 2 570 sli's as thats what i am thinking in the future of the future. the reason for the Sli 560 as i know they are more powerful than a 580 and also price wise only around $50 more than a 570 (in singapore) but would getting one 570 be more future proof as i can upgrade it later on?


Thanks!

  1. Two 560 in sli will beat a single 570. However there are issues with recent generations of cards and the GTX 570 has a known issue with it's power vrm to a lessor extent than the gtx 590. Nvidia removed a phase or two that can be fatal in some cases of high load causing failure thus bricking the card you can search online with pictures of this. Personally two 560 will cost more but is more powerful than a single 570 or you could go for a 580 for the same cost depending ware you are.
  2. thanks for you input but should i get a HX1000 watt or the AX850 is im thinking of sli 580 or 570 is the future run thanks :D
  3. 850 is plenty imo
  4. Thanks :) im exited for my build, happening in 1-2 months!

    You're on the right track going with a single 570 now with SLI in mind for the future. Definitely the best choice.

    Regarding power...
    First, we know the Corsair AX850 has enough amps (70) and watts (840) available on the 12V rail for any option you're considering, but you need to also look at some other things.

    I have two 580s that regularly put my system around the 750W mark when gaming. The 570 spec says they max out around 20W less than the 580s. This combined with the 35 less watts required of the 1155 processor (95) compared to my 1366 processor (130) would make me think you'd be running around 675W regularly while gaming.

    If you get OC edition of the 570s, you'll have to consider they'll require more power. If you OC your CPU, depending on how much, that could also require 50-100W additional power.

    If you won't be doing any heavy OC'ing and you get reference 570s, I'd say the 850W is a safe bet and a good way to go.

    If you're looking at OC'd 570s and will be going for some substantial increases in CPU performance through OC'ing - I'd stay with corsair - you might consider the 950TX or HX1000 at that point.
  6. nice I think sli 560, 570, or 580 or a 570 or 580 in a single card, you really can't go wrong...
  7. yeah like ubercake said if you are doing heavy ocing to gpu and cpu go with the extra overhead and get the hx100

  10. so basically if one were to just OC without a voltage increase and watch temps then they should be okay Im just looking to get around 820 core 2000 mem, which I have seen people hitting easily with no voltage increase does anyone have any experience ocing a reference 570?
  11. thanks guys, how if i get the AX1200W (its only $70 more than 850) and then get one Asus 570, then in the future i can add another 570

    sound good?
  12. sounds good just don't oc them too high :) or you might have to add a post to the "have you killed a 570" thread lol
  13. 1200 Watts, damn you could probably run 590 sli with that
  14. haha, i trust the AX series and with their 7 year warranty, i know it will last :) will probably make my mind up when purchasing,

    does anyone know of a very good 1000W PSU, as the HX is slightly outdated
  15. true true, no doubt it will be a powerful setup what cpu will you be running?
