GTX 570 1.2GB vs 570 2.5GB

Hi people which card would be better for my system. I have been told to get the standard 1.2GB 570 because the 2.5GB would only help in open world games and multi-monitor setups. So which would be better for my system? I play on a single 1920x1080 resolution. My pc specs are:

i5 2500k (Not overclocked right now but will soon) with cooler master hyper 212+
Gigabte z68x-ud3h-b3 (Currently waiting for a replacement sine the first board was defective, I am writing this on my laptop right now)
2x4Gb ddr3 g-skill 1600mhz
rosewill 750w power supply
1 500GB 7200rpm hdd (Will add an ssd if I really want to)
Windows 7 Home premium 64-bit

That`s about all I can think of off of the top of my head. If you need anything else just say. I mostly play Crysis 2, battlefield 3, witcher 2,skyrim, and a couple of smaller indie titles.

  1. They would both work fine for 1920x1080 the 2.5GB is of course better but you don't need it for a single monitor setup.But why not wait for 660 TI?It going to preform better than a 570 by far and it's only going to cost around $300.00.
  2. For that price, GTX 570 is a bad buy today. Wait 2 weeks for GTX 660 Ti to come out. It will be much better and cheaper too (@ $300).
  3. Thanks guys guess I`ll just wait until the 660 ti comes out.
  4. Your very welcome!And,smart choice. ;)
  5. what's the price and price differences between the 1.2 and 2.5GB models.?
