    Help me pick a GPU setup!

    Edited the original post to reflect what people were saying and my choice to save money for a Kelper upgrade instead. Leaning more towards the GTX 570 2580 mb version since its only 20$~ more NCIX right now, but the GTX 580s dropped a bit too and its very tempting :sad:

    Help me pick a GPU setup!

    Is there any reason to go with the GTX 570 over the GTX 560 448 Classified? 35~$ cheaper and same performance/better performance in some cases. I guess the downside would be harder to find one later on if I want to tri-sli depending on how long the run for them is.

    Help me pick a GPU setup!

    I got my hands on the 2700k through the Intel RE Holiday deal (paid 100$~ for it), thats the only reason I went for that over the 2600k. Definetly a good idea of getting an SSD though if I go with a cheaper GPU setup, completely forgot about that. :clap: I originally really liked the idea of...

    Performance differences?

    Hardware Canucks sometimes does reviews comparing the cards different companies offer, such as this one for the GTX 560 448 core. http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum/hardware-canucks-reviews/48843-nvidia-geforce-gtx-560-ti-448-roundup-evga-gigabyte-msi.html As far as if there is one for the...

    SB Gaming Rig

    I hate to say it but I've changed my mind once again. Sticking with SB for sure this time though since I got my hands on a 2700k through the Intel RE program. Also partly because I'd rather wait for a platform that is more of an upgrade than SB-E vs SB before blowing all my cash on it! Anyways...

    SB Gaming Rig

    After looking at that first analysis, to me X79 isn't worth it right now. The main reason I'm going SB-E is because I really feel I will be able to keep the system longer while updating it since it has processors with more cores (once games that can take advantage of it come out) and more to...

    SB Gaming Rig

    Well I've ended up changing my mind, I'll be switching over to an X79 system and probably posting a new list within a week or two. The price premium doesn't seem that bad since it has that much more room for upgrade (CPU/RAM) and the SLI is that much better. Also realized I completely forgot to...

    HD 6950, 6870 or GTX 560 TI?

    The 6950 seemed really attractive but its really on the higher end of my budget and I couldn't decide if it was worth the performance upgrade. Are there any other places I should look for good video card deals appart from NCIX and Newegg.ca? WoW is a part of the reason, but I've been running...
