@hellfire because as of the moment, the 600 series of cards are more expensive. and my 295's aren't getting any younger. btw, my 295's don't have warranty and box while the 580 i'm going to trade on has box with warranty.
well my brother owns a gtx 580 so i can tell tell the pros and cons of it.it's damn fast,hardly any issues.but it produces a lot of heat,consumes a lot of power,not a good overclocker.it's better to buy a hd 7950.
@hellfire i'm not much of an overclocker. will an asus 580 be enough for a 1080p monitor? power consumption is not much of an issue for me. and I also think na 7950's are still expensive at the moment.
@quilciri, @looniam Hello! I know 295 quads can still kick ass today. But sometimes, microstuttering is an issue for me and some games just don't go well with quad SLI. I'm just wondering if asus 580 is more than enough for 1080p games. Since I won't be adding any dime (except for shipping) and I can also have peace of mind because it has warranty as well.
@recon-uk, @quil I'm hoping that the asus 580 will be smoother in some games.
hopefully when the prices of 580's will settle down, I can buy another asus 580 DCU ii at a cheaper price.
