I don't do gaming at all but do some video and photo editing and do mean a small amout 4 films a year and prob 6 sets of 200-300 pics but I do like a resonable nice comp. I have a friend who dose lots and I mean lots of film editing he basicly dose it all day every day and he has a Nividia GTX 570HD this card was all so recomended by the local computer build/repair buisness guy. Whats my best 570 card ?

Ok there are a lot of companies doing the 570 I have looked on Scan and the best two selling cards seam to be ...........

go with the evga card

Go for the MSI, won't heat up very often.
And i don't think you need a 1800mhz memory, because i think ur motherboard only supports a maximum of 1600mhz, and the 1600mhz memory would be cheaper.

ps. i only did a quick search on ur motherboard stats, just have a look again on its memory speeds.

MSI Twin Frozer III!!!!

EDIT: yes that is such a waste on getting 1800/1866 RAMs, get 1600, it's enough.

We are onley looking at about £25 diffrance on 16 gig of ram between 1600 and 1866

Let me get this right becouse the 1866 is oc that means it has to be set manualy in the BIOS but the 1600 wont so 1600 is my easiest option

yes ur board can only handle up to 1600 mhz, but u can overclock a 1600mhz memory to become 1866mhz/2133mhz/2200mhz. i don't think u can run a natively 1800mhz on that motherboard, and if u know how to overclock just get the 1600 and overclock it to 1866mhz.

Ok get you now as any ram above 1600 on a Asus board has to be OC as in set up in the BIOS (to much grief for me lol) I do notice tho the Gigabyte boards dont have OC after the higher ram specs dose faster RAM make that much diffrance to what Im doing ???

1600 is enough I think, based on the sites that I search on the web.

If I'm not wrong, intel 1155 platform doesn't really cope with 1866 well so there is no big difference over a 1600. Correct me if I'm wrong anyway...

Gigabyte 570 OC Windorce 3x and MSI 570 TwinFrozr II both use the reference PCB design with 6 phase VRM (4 for GPU and 2 for memory). They simply put a custom cooler on top. MSI cards have similar incidents reported


The EVGA also has only the reference 4 + 2 phase VRM design.....you definitely want an 8 phase design.

Gainward 570 Phantom, Gainward 570 GS, Palit 570 Sonic Platinum and the Asus GTX570 DirectCU II all have 8 phase VRMs (6 GPU and 2 memory).
