Hello all,

I'm currently building a new rig,
and would like your advice on the graphics card i should purchase.

the specs so far:
-Asus Sabretooth P67 Motherboard
-Intel i7 2600 (non k)
-Corsair H100 watercooling (not really needed i know, but i like the clean look of it)
-Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz (16gb)
-Corsair 1050HW powersupply
-Corsair GT 120gb SSD (incoming)

i will be using this rig mainly for gaming (BF3,GW2,...) i'll be looking at the latest games to play once i finish this rig.
and movie watching ofcourse

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: since it's a new rig i don't have a current gpu :p  but the powersupply is the Corsair 1050HX

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: www.komplett.be www.alternate.be www.tones.be www.bytesatwork.be
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: Belgium

PARTS PREFERENCES: somehow i'm leaning towards Nvidia cards but i'm open to ATI ofcourse

OVERCLOCKING: Maybe
SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Maybe

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1200


i'm currently very intressted in the Nvidia GTX 570's but theres a wide range of types on that card alone, and the brand too
somehow i wanna stick to Asus because i have a Asus motherboard, but i heard great stuff about EVGA too so i'm open to that brand aswell, or any other for that matter... i'm looking for performance, durability, all that nice stuff.

My budget on this card would be around 300-450ish euro's (392.82 U.S. dollars - 589.23 U.S. dollars ) or (250 - 375 British pounds)


Also i'm still a bit sceptical about the whole SLI setup... some say it rocks, others say its risky and will fry your card(s)

so my question about SLI would 2 x GTX 560 perform better then 1 GTX 570?
would 2x GTX 570 perform better then 1 GTX 580?

i also saw different memory sizes on different graphics cards such as 1gb 1280mb 1530mb, etc

i read a review stating some gtx 570 with 1280mb performs better then a gtx with 2560mb

so this is why i'm very confused about purchasing a graphics card



hope you guys can help me sort this out


Thnx!

Kev

If you are talking about the 560Ti's then the answer would be yes, and the same goes for SLi'd 570's out performing a single 580.

Personally EVGA DS HS Is the best in my opinion, Evga does make good card and they are the most reliable for nVidia card. If you are not getting TFIII I suggest you get the Evga.

Well the only reason i see you need 2560mb of ram is if your going to be running multiple high resolution monitors. the 1280mb is plenty enough for 1080. and if your gonna SLI. your video ram would be 2560mb. SO unless you have a need for the extra video ram. the cheaper 1280 is a better choice. EVGA is a good brand. If you prefer the look of dual exhaust then EVGA's card would be the best. If you want a dual fan video card. I have Direct CUII GTX 560 ti's in a SLI and my temps are so good i don't feel the need to monitor anymore. I may get a kepler card when the mid ranged are released. Kepler will be out in 2 months earliest tho. So SLI 560 ti's are gonna hold me over hopefully

Hello.
In my opinion take MSI N570GTX Twin Frozr III PE/OC (Core Clock 770MHz) if you want a solid product with great o/c potential.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
http://www.alternate.be/html/product/Grafische_kaarten_...
339euro from Alternate.


Edit: I just saw the price of SOC GTX570 :S from the sites you linked. Its way overpriced. 400euro oO? Nevermind, forget this.
If you want more performance from factory o/c GIGABYTE Super Overclock Series GV-N570SO-13I (Core Clock 845MHz which performs almost like a GTX580)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Both have the same price from newegg at $369.

Sorry for using abbreviation, TFIII means MSI Twin Frozer III. If you can get them I recommend it over those 4 cards.
