Hi there, I'm planning on getting a new graphics card for my system, and I came in mind of considering the MSI GeForce GTX 570 Twinfrozr II 732MHZ 1280MB 3.8GHZ GDDR5 2xDVI Minihdmi PCI-E Video Card
But I've read some of the feedbacks from other people on the web and they say that this card fails in couple of months. Should I be getting this card or going with something else, any recommendation?

Here's my specs (this is a custom built PC from NCIX, built on Nov. 2011):

Intel Core i5 2500
Gigabyte Z68XP-UD3 rev. 1.0
Mushkin Enhanced blackline frostbyte dual channel memory 2X4GB
Coolermaster Haf 922 Mid Tower ATX
One 200mm fan in front as intakes, one 200mm fan on sides panel as intakes, one 200mm fan on top as outtakes, and one 120mm fan on back as outtakes.
Seasonic M12II 620W EPS12 20/24PIN ATX
Western Digital WD 1TB Caviar Green SATA3
Asus VH236H 23 inch LCD Monitor 1920x1080

I know that the PSU may be a bit weak, but will it be substantial enough to cause any hardware failure?


Thanks for reading.

depending on your budget I would get a gtx 670 over a 570 anyday but if that is out of the question then the next best thing for around the cost of the 570 would be a 7870 or 7850 they are your best bang for your buck in that price range


your psu should be plenty for any single gpu out there.

so a 670 is out of the question? and if you dont want to run AMD cards (I understand) then your next bet would have to be a 580 or 570 in terms of performance. so then what you picked out should work fine just might not be the best bang for your buck

just where did you read that negative feedback? if it is credible and new egg reviews do not fall into that category, then find a model with a better track record.
also the PSU will handle any single card set up.

youre PSU looks more than fine for a 1 GPU configuration

ive always believed that reasons that make things fail are bad PSU which you dont and bad AIrflow which i also doubt you have

i would also consider the GTX670 unless its out of the question

the main reason i like SEASONIC is because its japanese 105C capacitors and that rpple noise thing that SEASONIC makes it better
