i found a guy that's selling a evga gtx 570 hd for about $125.He also said he has another that he would sell all together for $200 so i can run sli. the question is am i better off getting the gtx 570 or buying a gtx 560 ti? i dont wanna spend too much money. i was also thinking if maybe i should buy both and sell the other one and get money back so the card i keep would even be a better deal. here is my current specs

cooler master storm enforcer
asrock z77 extreme 4
i5 3570k oc @ 4.2
hyper 212 evo
samsung 830 ssd 128 gb
antec earthwatts green 750 watts

let me know what you guys think. this was my first computer build. im currently using the onbaord hd 4000 graphics to browse and stuff. im not a big gamer but once in awhile i would like to play some games.

2x570 for $200 is an unbelievable deal... if that's legit you absolutely should do it. You could either sell one for $125-150 yourself or just run SLI.

and how good is the gtx 570 compared to like a gtx 560 ti? i did look at some reviews and comparisons and the gtx 570 seemed a little better

It's about 20-25% faster overall than the 560ti:


I probably would upgrade the PSU, though, for running SLI. You probably could get away with it on that power supply, as an average load on 570 SLI will draw about 300-400W for the cards, but I personally would upgrade to a high quality 850W unit like the Corsair HX850 or AX850.

now im just debating if i should purchase both for $200 and either sell the one or use it for sli? or just buy 1 for $125, does sli improve gaming experience that much more? even though im not a big gamer?

It has it pros and cons but if your not a heavy gamer one should serve you well no need for two imo ;)

I don't know but you can buy them brand new for as low as $250 and your monitor is fine

1x 570 is good enough to run BF3 and most other games at high settings.

I don't have any issues with mine.

However, I'm looking to SLi and all the benchmarks place 2x 570's in SLI as better than a 590

Yes very enough to run both and overclock each nail in your PC, no worries at all.

Here is Guru3D's power supply recommendation:

GeForce GTX 570

On your average system the card requires you to have a 600 Watt power supply unit.

GeForce GTX 570 in 2-way SLI

A second card requires you to add another ~225 Watts. You need a 750+ Watt power supply unit if you use it in a high-end system (800+ to a KiloWatt is recommended if you plan on any overclocking). Source: http://www.guru3d.com/article/geforce-gtx-570-sli-revie...
