Just checked GPUZ and its showing that i have a regular GTX 570 not a SC but my numbers all match SC,

That's because they've stopped editing the bios.

So... how is it?

Is it faster than your previous SLI cards?

Its not faster in benchmarks but my games seem smoother..Im gonna bench it later and see where it stands against my GTx470's

2x 470's own anything as far as a single card. Just not those dual gpu cards.

Yep 2x GTX470's do pretty much kick every single cards asses.But omg the heat they put out is crazy.This GTX570 runs about 25c cooler and is really fast.Yeah my 470 were faster for sure.But am happy with its performance.Maybe ill step up to a 580 or grab a second one later on but i doubt it.Im trying to limit my spending on computers .Because im getting married in a few months

Thinking about getting another GTX 570 SC's ..lol and a Corsair H80,Should i?
Also debating on gong back to i7 920/Asus P6T Deluxe.Its a much more stable board and i dont really see much differnce in performance when i crank the i7 920 up to 4.4ghz and 12GB of ram what you all think

I have the HD 6970 and it's a fine card. Buy the one that gets you the best performance for your money.

Mothow, I have the Corsair H50 and love it, keeps my OC'ed CPU quite cool. The H80 is a good choice...:)

I got this from Anandtech:
http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/311?vs=330

GTX560ti (822MHz/1644MHz/1002MHz) > GTX470 (607MHz/1215MHz/837MHz) by a bit in most games, but your GTX470 is overclocked so you have to take that into account.


Also, Idle and Load temps and Load Noise levels are much better in the GTX560Ti.

...or should i just stick with my 470 for now? its @ gtx480 speeds.. i just dont like that its so loud!


I'd probably stick with the OC'd gtx470. At gtx480 equiv there's virtually no practical difference between your card and the gtx570, and not too much diff between it and gtx580. As for the lower price-point 560ti it looks virtually identical to the gtx470 and well below an gtx480 equivalent in performance.

Re: the sound, I'd look at acoustic dampening material, work on bringing in cooler outside air directly to the gtx470 fan to get the RPMs down, etc. Your fan may even be flawed...look for defects. Also, even a little bit of grime build-up on the blades can make a HUGE difference in the sound level. There may even be a liquid cooling kit for it, which should be a lot cheaper than a new GTX5xx card. I've also read somewhere on HWA (above?) that if your system can support it, 2xGTX470 in SLi blows away any single card solution! (which would be another cheaper solution, and your overall sound might decrease as two cards wouldn't have to work nearly as hard as one, even though you now have another fan)


edit:
corrected comment to deals with the 560ti. Even though I tried checking it twice before, my vision problems still showed me 580ti.

hehe well cooling, i solved it somewhat, all depends on my room temperature (being a small apartment, it heats up quickly, specifically from the gpu :P ) so i do need to keep my windows open... then i have a tiny little 18cm fan blowing on the side, keeps it at about 65c when im ARMA:ing away beign the chopper pilot that i am :P

otherwise, my case is kickass, 2600k with hyper 212+ @ 33c idle.. but, its just that its a fermi card, and reference, and hot from the very start! and sound proofing doesnt work on this case ;)
heres the case: http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/In-Win-Dragon-Slayer-Case-Review/993 (btw, best case, and smallest ive ever had.. solid build, and cheap! 50euros.. has all the latest commodities..)

I have some serious anxiety issues debating getting the 570.. and because it has the DC2 cooling unit: http://www.webhallen.com/hardvara/142299-asus_geforce_gtx_570_...tlefield_3

So the question is... will i notice any performance difference in bf3 do u think?
Im only thinkin this because bf3 is around 45 euros here in sweden, and if i buy the gpu ill basically pay 260 euros for a 570.. gaaah all these decisions!

You will see a nice performance boost because your case and card will be. cooler and wont have as much throttling.What I noticed was much higher minimal fps in games

umm forgive me for being confused.. but why would my computer be throttling? Everything else runs cool in it, except for the graphic card that reaches 86 degrees with a loud fan.. but no throttling?
