GTX 570

I am currently upgrading my GPU and I am certain I want a GTX 570, I have looked around and I think it would be best for what I play, but I'm stuck on which one I should get, because I have found a PnY GTX 570 for £183 from Ebuyer but the cooling on it is not really that good, but I have found a Gainward GTX 570 Phantom which has much better cooling and is very slightly factory overclocked (Im not planning on overclocking because I have broken a GPU doing that before) anyway the Phantom costs £222 which is like £40 more but would it be worth it, I have a CiT Vantage x11 case which is a decent size and my CPU idles @ 33oc and my old GTX 560 Ti 448 idled at 40oc so would the better cooling be worth the £40

  1. 560ti 448 to 570 will make unnoticeable upgrade.at least aim for a hd 7850,it performs similar(or better) than 570-
    http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-hd-7870-review-benchmark,3148-6.html
    but most striking features are-
    it's a newer card with 28nm technology.
    runs cooler and overclocks like a dream.
    very less power consumption.
    will beat a 570 with good margin when overclocked.
    over all a better deal.
    MSi twinfrozer III has one of the best cooling and a lot of overclocking potential-

    I don't agree. GTX 570 is around 12% faster than HD 7850. Plus he gets Nvidia drivers and physx. Higher power consumption is worth it.

    @OP: Your old GTX 560 Ti 448 should still be covered by warranty since it cannot be more than 6 months old. Did you try letting them replace it?
  3. hardly 3 out of 10 games use Physx and i don't think that 570 is powerful enough to max out a game like batman with physx.
    and i said that 7850 will beat 570 when overclocked.
  4. There's no point to compare overclocked HD 7850 vs stock GTX 570. GTX 570 overclocks very well as well.
  5. If your buying new (IE, no current card) then grab a HD7850, it should be roughly the same price and performs alittle better.
    If your able to get a replacement GTX560Ti 448 via RMA (I assume that's the card you killed with overclocking) then consider SLI if your PC supports it.

    why not?? i am damn sure 7850 is a better overclocker.

    It depends where you live - if you live in a hot country it is worth the £40. I live in a hot country so I got the Asus GTX 570 DCII.
  8. Yeah I had a refund on that from Dabs, and I have just gone for the EVGA GTX 570 Classified version because I found it pretty cheap, im not worried about power consumption so the 7850 was not really what I was looking at, plus if I did look at the 7870 but it was about £50 over my budget, I got the classified for £220 and the cooling on it was good. thanks for the comments though :)
  9. ^+1 and for $250,gtx 480 is a good deal if any body wants one-
