Is it worth the little bit extra for the 570 ?

  1. You will get about 5% more frames-per-second from the 570 but more noise since the 570 you listed has one fan whereas the 560 Ti 448 that you listed has 2 fans. If it was me, I would get the 570 since I don't care about noise :)
  2. Unless you really must buy right now, I would hold off and see how the 660 Ti performs before buying a last-generation nvidia GPU. It may also affect pricing.
  3. Wait for 660 TI suppose to be released Aug.16th. if i recall right.
  4. Neither .... the 570 had issues with it's VRM (8 phase non reference models were fine) and thr 560-448 is a "broken" 570 (1 SM broken or disabled)

    I'd wait for the 660 Ti

    GeForce GTX 650 GK107 384 1GB GDDR5 128-bit $120 -
    GeForce GTX 650 Ti GK107 384 1GB GDDR5 192-bit $150 September
    GeForce GTX 660 GK104 1152 1.5 GB GDDR5 192-bit $230 August
    GeForce GTX 660 Ti GK104 1344 2GB GDDR5 192-bit $300 August
  5. im on a budget of around £200 - £230 so the 560ti seems perfect at the minute as the 660ti is expected to be more than that and i dont want a card that will break or overheat obviously. So as the evga 560ti 448 has almost 570 performance with slight overclock and good cooling from reviews that i've read. For £199 i think i will go for that one. Meaning my system will cost around £800 overall.

    yes.
    while everyone is saying this and that and hitting you with get this and get that....
    (I'm waiting for the GTX 660 Ti myself...)
    but if these are your two options and you can't wait then don't wait.
    do what you need to do.
    it's your show....

    with that being said, the price difference isn't that much and I would get the GTX 570.
    if these are your only two choices and you are buying now.

    cheers.

    +1 i agree ;)
  8. wait tho...the 660 ti may bring down the cost of both the 560ti/570. I think that is point ppl are making.
  9. HD 7850 > GTX 570. Less power, less noise. Just as good.

    matter of opinion..
  11. I second that motion. consider the HD7850.

    Not even as good roughly 8% to 10% slower less power yes less noise no GTX 570 is the faster card, hands-down. The 7850 uses less power that's true, bottom line... IDK why so many people have said they are identical performance wise The 7870 is more or less identical to the GTX 570 in terms of performance but not the 7850. Not stock vs stock or max OC vs max OC. http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/AMD/HD_7850_HD_7870/26.html You see different benchmarks will say different things test benches differ from system to another system.I won't blame you for being confused since even Toms Hardware staff included is guilty of spreading false information about the 7850 compared to a 570 but the facts of the matter are they don't compare to one another and neither are all that. ;)
