I think the card is overall good deal. I'm looking into buying MSI 560 ti 448 but NVIDIA said there was a 'limited' supply and they plan on selling out in 6-8 weeks. At 300$, that's a great deal for the card because it only performs 5-10% less than MSI Gtx 570 which is 370$. but what happens if they run out of cards and i need to rma - and the card ends up being broken or something? As in they can't fix it. I'd end up i guess getting my money back or dare i say they try to give me a 560ti or something.
Should i just go ahead and get the 570? i have the money but 300$ is a much better buy.
i'm sure it is, but something could always go wrong. The EVGA 570 is 330. But still... i'm a little worried about 70c, which isn't terrible, and i have two fans facing my GPU anyways... still a little hot.
The manufacturers always have a reserve supply for repairs and RMA's , but the thing you want to consider is that if they do infact run out of cards and you really like the card and want to get another for SLI then you could be out of luck. I would go with the 570 if you can aford it.
Just bought the EVGA gtx 570, it may run hotter, but i'll run MSI afterburner with it to keep temps down. Plus it has Lifetime warranty, so if i have problems in a few years, i'm gauranteed a new card. thnx for your opinions though.
