Im trying to get together a nice gaming rig and i decided i want to buy the GTX 570 GPU. Can anybody help me out and explain the differences between.

1. EVGA 012-P3-1570-AR GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

2. EVGA SuperClocked 012-P3-1573-KR GeForce GTX 570 HD w/Display-Port (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

3. EVGA SuperClocked 012-P3-1572-AR GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

4. EVGA 025-P3-1579-AR GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) HD 2560MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Which one would be best paired up with ASROCK Z68 Professional LGA 1155?

The fist one is not overclocked. The second one has a display port for multiple monitors. The third one is overclocked a tiny bit and the fourth one has double the memory.

What resolution are you gaming at?

Also, have you considered this card?

Also, the AR suffix cards will have a lifetime warranty, the others will be limited.

I happen to like #3 the best. I like the direct exhaust cooler. It gets the heat out the back of the case directly instead of dumping some of it into the case where case cooling has to deal with it. That keeps both your gpu and cpu cooler.

I plan on 1920 x 1080 as of right now. How do you think the graphics will hold up on these cards?

There are three that are great:

MSI TF/PE
Gigabyte SOC
ASUS DCU/II

The Gigabyte one did have some issues when they were first released, not sure if the bugs have been worked out. The ASUS card has a great cooler but does not seem to be able to overclock as much as the other two.

If I were to choose between the three, I would choose the MSI one.

If you want a lifetime warranty, go with eVGA, but keep in mind that they use reference coolers which may run hotter and louder and will not be able to overclock as much.

Would it be more beneficial to go with the 580? or should i stick with the 570? What would you recommend for a 580?

If you have the funds, get the GTX580 and don't look back.
Otherwise you will always be second guessing yourself.

Look at the evga GTX580 superclocked.

If you can walk in to a microcenter, you can get a 2500K for $180. Check their walk in deals.

Otherwise, I like newegg for their service. Sometimes you can do a bit better online shopping, but not that much.

I avoid tigerdirect. In the past, I have heard of some sleazy deals and customer service issues. Don't know about now.
