I am looking into buying a Catleap Q270 SE 27" monitor... but I am afraid that my single GTX570 won't be able to handle the 2560x1440 resolution! But I don't wanna spend $310 on another GTX570 (none in b stock either) while used ones are $170! Plus, that brings my total cost to over $700 if I buy a used one. Compared to $500 for monitor/GPU (little over $500 anyway). But I have NEVER bought used PC parts (from a friend once, but I trust him!). What do you guys think of getting a used GTX570 off ebay? Or off a forum? Looking to run SLi (obviously... haha)
4096 might be system memory or shared memory. the 1280 is the correct one. if you are buying the 2nd 570, be warned that the vram will be the limiting factor if you play 1920x1080 in vram heavy games which include like i said, BF3 and Skyrim and other games in teh future that will be similar to it. You will have the compute power of a strong gpu by having 2 570s, but lack the storage for some games.
Agreed. Sell it, and cut your losses. (Once again SLI isn't worth it with one monitor) If you sell it for $150, buy the 670 for $400, then you really only spent $250. Buying the used card would be $170, but you gotta deal with the extra heat and power.
What card would you suggest to do such a thing? GTX 680?
if you want my opinion on nvidia side, 670. for amd side, 7950 or better(assuming you have overclocking skills). the 680 is a horrible value to performance card is is basically can be attained by the 670/7970/7970ghz which all 3 cards are cheaper than it.
