Graphics card battle

Hello community.
I am eyeing a new build from newegg.
I have all my parts chosen except my motherboard.
I am a nvidia fanboy so nvidia sugesstions only plz
I am looking at the evga nvidia gtx 560 ti 2gb http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130683
And the Evga nvidia gtx 570 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130620
could i get feedback from multiple people telling me which is better for gaming,all catagories?
Thank you in advance

  1. the 570 is a better card overall. the 560ti is actually a crippled 570, or a 570 that didn't make the cut as a 570.
  2. if you have good case air flow and something like a 600w PSU or above, I would recommend this card for best performance (and price>

    yes recon that's the 480 :P

    No, that's is not the case.....the 570 is actually the card that has had problems for nVidia


    1. They have had yield issues with the 570 to the extent that a 570 that had one failed SM (15 on 570; 14 on 560-448) and was re-released as a 560-448.

    2. The PCB and VRM on the reference cards was a bit weak resulting in a lotta fried cards before most manufacturers came back with non reference versions with tweaked PCB's and beefier VRM's

  4. HeHe - funny - we're all linking Recon-uk's favorite;-) Nothing crippled in this card - only thing is it is not very efficient.

    i do have good case flow and cooling.
    So the gtx 480 trumps all? Gtx 560 ti and 570?
    Also, I would like to eventually sli, any mobo suggestions, cheap plz?

    my bad, thought he was looking at a 560ti-448 core...

    speaking of which, why isn't he lookint at a 448core 560ti???

    anyway, 480 still gets my recommendation for Nvidia

    EVGA is one of those manufacturers that had problems with the VRM on their 570's.....Asus and others went iup to 8 phase VRM's but EVGA stuck with the reference 6 phase on all but their classified model.

    As for the 560 Ti, EVGA is a bit brash asking $250 for a stok clock 822 Mhz card. These are both at 900 Mhz and have been reported stable to 1070 Mhz ... $250 for 2GB; $210 for 1 GB model

    if you plan to eventually sli, I recommend against the 480 as it's a monster of a card, drains tons of power, and spits out a lot of it as heat. running single card is fine, sli can get really hot... I would wait a guy named recon-uk to show up and ask him about sli480 as that's the set-up he has and he seem to have it running really well.

    what are you running on the rest of your system? since you said new build I'm assuming Ivy bridge CPU? anyway, I need to know what you're putting in it in order to recommend a mobo

    I am here, ask away :D

    hi recon-uk
    i was doing a comparison between an evga 560 ti 2gb and a evga super-clocked 570
    Then vmem told me about the 480.
    My question is if it is better, graphics wise than the other 2 graphics cards,
    If it is what cheap mobo would be good for putting them in sli, dont mind power or heat,
    my specs are already in the thread below

    1). you'll want a higher wattage PSU for future SLI. 500W is the standard for a single video card system, and I'm not sure enough for the 480 alone (not even talking about sli). corsair's a great name in PSU, so I would just go for a higher wattage corsair

    2). the corsair vengeance memory are great (own them myself), but the big heat spreaders are a pain and not that useful. get the low profile ones if you want corsair vengeance, other wise get G.skill memory.

    3). this board should do for your needs, open box for super cheap:

    otherwise get this guy

    You will need 800watts+ for SLi.

    That motherboard can do SLi, but not my recommendation for SLi cooling...

    Ram is fine.

    That PSU is perfect for a single GPU only.

    alright thx but forget sli for now, i can get any mobo but i need a min of 600 wats or maybe less?

    Seems good, are you left with anything over from the budget?

    it depends what is it and is it mandatory
    because as you see in my profile im only 13 so my parents are paying for half off the computer

    whyd you ask if i had extra money?

    it seems like a good case but my two concerns is that it has only two fans plus does it have enough space for 1 maybe two 480s?
    do you have any personal experience with this case?
    what about this case, seems nice

  19. somebody should sticky this page, it has a lot of good information on motherboards, psu's, and graphic cards+comparisions

    haha, thanks for best answer, though I feel bad since many people contributed... shame you cant award multiples. recon's probably asleep since he's in the UK and it's like 5 or 6am over there

    anyway, best of luck with your build. you're lucky to get into PC building so young, it's a very educational and rewarding process :)
