1st of all i would like to mention that, thanks to the people of the forum. I decided to got with the GTX 570 over the HD6950-6970. Do to my max resolution. So the question is.

Should I get a 570 right now or wait until the 670 comes out. Roughly when this types of cards get introduce. How much do they usually cost? I am assuming around $400 bucks. I have a Rd 4870 right now. I just don't know if i should just wait until jan/feb when the new gtx get release. Be playing at 1920x1080. Trying to max stuff up.

Thanks everyone

usually when a new line of GPU's gets launched, theres mid ranged released, with high end around the corner.... so im thinking jan/frb might be more like april/may.
the 570 will mop the floor with that 4870, and last you a while.

when the 570 was release. was it consider a high end card? or the lowest of the "their high end versions" or their mid line up

like 570/580/590 etc etc..

it was released after the 580 as an enthusiast level alternative to the 580. with an overclock it performs with a stock 580 for like 160 bux less

Agreed. The difference in performance between a 570 and a 580 is very small, but the difference in price is quite a lot.

Except the 570 is not a good OCer and OC vs. OC the 580 has a bigger margin over the 570 than stock vs. stock. The 570 is still a great card though, but don't expect to max every single game out at 1920x1080 with 35+ frames always (ie. Crysis 2).

I got a GTX 560 oc edition from tiger direct for 159.99 for this exact reason, I think today is the last day you can buy it.

I am content playing on average 50 fps on very high detail for the time being. After the 600/7000 series come out, maybe I will use the 560 as a physx card (yes, I know it probably is overkill).

Perhaps I will SLI the card, by that time I could probably find this card really cheap. It really just depends upon how much better the 600/7000 series is compared to current tech.

I currently play on 1920X1080 as well.

Some 570s can OC good, but for some reason Nvidia made it so 1.1v or higher on the core makes the 570 fry.

well snappy fingers,384bit,gothemfinest among others recommended me the card. that i should be able to run crisis,1,2 with the extreme mod. at 60fps or around there.Max out at the 1920x1080. However with not AA. and to be perfectly honest. I do not car for AA or 3d and stuff.


So basically you guys think that i should just buy the 570 now? cuz the new series might take up to 5-6 months..

My priorities are different of course, I bought the card because it was "cheap", and will hold me over until the 600/7000 series come out.

If you get a 570, you probably will end of simply SLI-ing it down the road, Which is not bad thing. It will probably just be the best option performance/cost ratio wise.

A 570 is great for that resolution, and you probably wont have to upgrade for quite some time.

Do you want to play now or later. Honnestly you could buy a 570 now save 100 bucks and buy a 400 dollar 6xx when it comes out. The 570 will stll be no slouch and sell it then buy you 670 or whatever for 150 or 160 after selling your 570 and saving the 100 dollars.

Well the problem is that NOTHING is future proof. When we get the 670, the freaking 770 will be around the corner too, and then you will want to wait for that. There is no point in waiting for cards in the future unless they are a few weeks away. So far, AMD are the only ones that have announced estimated delivery on their next GPU lineups, so Nvidia is probably going to come after that. You are looking at feb/march area.

IMO get yourself the damn GTX 570 and enjoy it. IF, eventually you decide that the 570 doesn't give you the performance you want, then get another one to SLI the damn things. Otherwise, just get what you can get now and stop trying to "future proof" cause there is no such thing. And yes, your current gpu NEEDS an upgrade.

570 now, if the 670 gives you half a stalk sell the 570 and buy it. If you come to a point where 1 card isn't good enough you can sell it. Unless trying for really high res gaming.

Nice, anything over 30 fps is consider good or decent.??

wooh, sir. please calm down. No need to get upset. I just was wondering. If the 4870 gave me good performance for me for all this years. I am asking here because I dont know.:(  My pc died so basically I am getting this for that reason. I am not a person that upgrades every 6 months and stuff. Not into multi screen and i don't care about AA,3d, and all that stuff. Just setting to max and nice frames since i will be using fraps.

I c thanks

Which should I buy.. From the old thread people said the Asus sucks for SLi so go with this two brands. Are the EVGA cards the same. Its like the same price but i don't get why there is a different model number?

At the 1080 resolution you are looking at 1 of these cards will work great.

Well, it is a little different then going from 4xx to 5xx then 5xx to 6xx. If the leaks are true, the 6xx will use the new PCIe 3.0 rather then the 2.0 that 4xx and 5xx used. Also, it is the new 28nm architecture rather then our last generation where it was the same architecture from 5000 series to 6000 series.

Won't know how big of a jump it is till the official release, but it is honestly up to you.

GTX 560's or higher give great performance for 1080 resolution, If you get a gtx 570, you should be very very content with its performance playing at that resolution.

Black Friday is coming up real soon, so if you could wait you probably will find some decent deal.

Keep your eye on slickdeals.com and techbargins.

any one of those three cards are great.

The two EVGA cards look identical in specs, all I can see different is...

The 012-P3-1573-KR only seems to come with 3 year warranty

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Were as the 012-P3-1573-AR comes with a life time warranty

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


If it were me buying I'd go for the cheaper EVGA with the lifetime warranty.

I would buy the GTX 570 if I were you but wait until either Black Friday / Cyber Monday or after Christmas when prices may be cheaper.

Get the GTX 570.
Just FYI i own a GTX 480 which trounces the GTX 580 at my OC settings.
A 570 may be able to reach similar or higher clocks ;) 


Your CPU clock speed changes everytime I look at your sig.
