A friend and I are both currently getting the final parts together for our first builds. We are both currently running a 620W power supply, i5-2500K processor and looking to get a video card. We were originally planning on getting the 560 TI but recently we found that the 570 may be a better card to get. The 570 is currently $100 more after rebate so we are trying to figure out if it is worth the extra bill. I'm open to suggestions on if the video ram is overkill, if the 570 isn't worth the extra money, longevity of the system ect. My monitor that I plan to use with this system is 1920x1080 but I may go bigger after awhile.

i think u would want this. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
or this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
they are both classified. which is evga's better quality cards that release after the initial release. both are really good for overclocking.

EVGA 012-P3-2066-KR GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 448 Cores FTW 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
$289.99 and a $30 rebate makes it $259.99

This is a card that is in between the two that you listed. It is a 560Ti with 448 processor cores and it gives almost the same performance as a 570 for a Ti price. The normal 560Ti has 384 processor cores and the 570 has 480 cores. Plus it has the same video memory as the 570.

Is the 448 core better than the classified edition c0marde listed above? Will dropping below 2G of memory cause me any problems? It doesn't seem like many cards go above 1.5G besides the two I had listed.

If you want Nvidia, you really should wait to get a 660 or 670 series card... they'll hit the same price points and probably get you like 20-40% more performance depending on how you make the comparison. They'll also have plenty of vram. Just a couple more weeks of waiting...


Ya we are planning to start building next week and don't really want to wait lol

And I'm assuming that you want Nvidia and not AMD?


Ya pretty sure we want to stick with Nvidia. You are welcome to argue for AMD though.

It doesn't matter. PCIe 3.0 is backwards compatible.

AMD has better performance throughout the $250-400 price range.

Also, you don't need PCi-e 3.0 - there are no advantages over PCI-e 2.0 unless you are doing some sort of 3 or 4 card setup:

So in your opinion i should switch to AMD? The $330 price of the 570 was about the most I was willing to spend right now on a video card and my friend was thinking of going to the 1.5G 570 version which was $300 I believe. . I want to play games and be able to play them for awhile. Being near the top of the graphics settings would be nice to which is why I was considering going to the 570 instead of sticking with the 560 we had originally picked out.

The comment about the PCIe 3.0 was just because I saw the card gary1 suggested wanted that when I glanced over its specs.

Buy the fastest one you can afford, it's as simple as that. I would wait a few weeks though because a price adjustment is surely in the works which means you can get your current choices cheaper, or go even bigger for the same money.

yo dawg.. GTX480 done.

and btw, my 7870 only runs (from what I've seen so far) at 2.0 even though it is rated 3.0 on a 3.0 ready mobo. So do with what you will

Keep telling yourself that.
Until you own one yourself, you cannot comment, just as i cannot comment on your 7870 ;) 


Well, like I've said before, it's a good card.

But my OC'ed 7870 that maxes out at 54C after 2 hours of gaming. I guess we just have different wants haha.

Yeah I just noticed that... at any rate: AMD for cool speed; NVidia for 'blazin' speed :kaola:

Only you did :) 

Btw, reason you get 2.0 speeds is because you don't have Ivy Bridge, as well as the fact 7870 can't take up the bandwidth. (I think)

I've never really seen sales on GPU's. Maybe a 10-15 coupon here and there but nothing big. Look for the ones that come with games though.

Definately go with a 7870, It's overclocking potential is just way too strong to deny. It tends to overclock better than the 7900's . Check this one out, and This Overclocking review.....You can get OVER GTX 580/7950 performance out of it.

PS

I'd go with a model that has a better cooler though.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... .... %5 discount, and a $20 rebate...can't go wrong.

I love twin frozr cards. :)
