I would suggest a good quality 850 Watt for the 570's in SLI and OC

I agree with Monsta, a good 850w should do the trick nicely. You would only need a 1000w for tri-sli

Hmm, I just looked at some Power Supplies and now I'm not sure if the 850 will do it. It seems most 850 Watt PSU's offer 70Amps on the 12v rail and a standard GTX570 says minimum of 38Amps x 2 = 76. I remember I had a 750 Watt PSU and it screwed itself when I put in 2 GTX 260's because it didn't have enough Amps on the 12v rail.

Can anyone shed some light on this, if a new 850W is enough for 2 570's?

In any case Hallow, make sure you get a PSU with a single 12v rail. All research indicates that's a better way to go. Having multiple 12v rails can sometimes cause issues.

This seems like a good option, sorry it's an Australian site :)

I suggested the 850 watt as its enough for it , you can go more which is a always a good thing but for some its overkill.
I use pccasegear myself here too , excellent site.

Here is the same one on new egg , its pricey tho , it all depends on your budget really

mhhm i see, so your saying a 850 watt will do the trick? but a 900 or 1000 isn't a bad idea, but i ain't gonna be spending $200 on a psu, as i just built my computer with a 560 and realized its not what i wanted, so i am getting a 570 soon and gonna get a psu that can support dual 570's and maybe summer time grab my other 570

Umm why not just get another 560?

because 2 560's are equal to a 570.

Do you have a 560 or a 560ti? If it is the ti version 2 of those will out perform a 580 at 1080p res.

I really hate the whole ti naming scheme.

yup me too, nope i don't have the ti i wimped out, and now look i want to get dual 570's lol.
plus i am scared of microstuttering, and that is why i am splitting it up i will get one 570 and see how it performs while i save up for my second 570 and then if its micro stuttering at least i have a 570 and can un sli whenever.

Can you hold out for another couple of months. The gtx600 series is supposed to be released sometime soon (I have been hearing april) and the leaked specs ive seen look promising.

Hallowead, I'm sorry but you are wrong. I have 2 x GTX560ti's which are superclocked and one of them performs the same as a 570 (in some cases a bit better), as reviewed by toms a while back.

The new 600 series is rumoured to vastly outperform the 500 series and I've read the GTX670 is launching not far away, that should be the best pick and you can SLI it later on. The 670 should have performance better than the 580.

If you mean the 600 series leaked specs here:

http://thetecherra.com/2012/02/06/nvidias-gtx-600-serie...
Take that with a grain of salt though as none of it has been confirmed to my knowledge.

If you mean the commit about a superclocked GTX560ti preforming close to a 570 then I don't have a link but a gtx560ti that is overclocked enough (I have run mine at 950Mhz stable) can get very close to a 570 at stock clocks.

i completely understand that but, from what i have researched a 570 can run bf3 on ultra with decent frams, i have a 1920x1080 monitor and i don't want to lower res to play. so dual 560's won't cut it if its only getting just a 570... i will just buy a 570 have the power of both 560's and then soon after get another 570 which will have quadroople the power of 1 560

Thats a highly overclocked SINGLE 560ti that can perform close to a single stock clocked 570. A pair of 560ti's in SLI will beat a 580 at 1080p easily.

Just looked it up and a pair of regular 560's in SLI can also beat a single 580

Now think about the cost of Upgrading to 2 570s....

The 570 with the most reviews from newegg:
http://216.52.208.185/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

$350 x2 = $700!!!

Why spend that much with upgraded parts right around the corner. If you are anything like me you know that you will be looking to upgrade again after those come out. Why waste the money now upgrading and then upgrading again in a few months or regretting not waiting?

well see i have this plan, within next week i am going to purchase just a single 570. when i sell my now gtx 560 on ebay i will go and buy a new motherboard. After this i will be ready to get my second 570. I will save up and get it whenever i can afford one, not soon, sometime within like 3-4 months.
I will not be looking to upgrade to the 600 series, because my dual 570's will out perform any of those new single cards. So by me waiting and getting a SINGLE card will still be less than the 570's

Sounds like a good plan then. Just be careful of buyers remorse when the new cards come out. I had a similar plan with the gtx400 series. got a pair of 460s and went to town. Thought that I was good, I'll skip the 500 series. Well I have a Pair of really nice 560ti's now and I will be selling them when the new ones come out and go strait for the jugular for a gtx680 or what ever replaces the 580.
