EVGA GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) DirectX 11 012-P3-1570-AR 1280MB 320-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Takes everything I can throw at it. It even pulls off >35 average FPS in Metro 2033 with everything maxed at 1920x1200.

Stable at 865/2100 at stock voltage.

Cons: There's really nothing that can actually stress this card on a single 1920x* screen, and nothing coming in the near future that can. Crysis 2 is dx9 console port and BF3 will probably have low requirements to make it accessible to the masses. I actually wish I had bought a 560 or 6950 instead of this, just because it's so overkill.

Other Thoughts: Perfect for gaming at 2560x*. Once you start looking at an SLS screen array, the 6950 and 6970 become more desirable for a couple of reasons: single-card Eyefinity support, better multi-card scaling (Tom's Hardware has an interesting article on trifire/tri SLI), and less of a framerate drop at higher resolutions due to the greater amount of VRAM (and as far as I can tell, support for a greater amount of shared system memory).

I do think that this is a very good card, and I'm not displeased with my purchase, but I can't really think of a scenario in which this card would be the ideal one to buy.

KINGWIN Lazer Gold Series LZG-850 850W ATX 12V v2.2 / EPS 12V v2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Modular
-80+ Gold Certified
-Very inexpensive, considering its performance is on par with Corsair's AX850
-Fully sleeved cables
-Enough PCIe power cables for three graphics cards
-840w available on the +12v rail
-Hardwired cables make sense; there's nothing wasted

Cons: None, really, although I'm not a fan of the gaudy black and gold cable sleeving and the blue LED. Looks takes the back seat to cost and performance, though.

Other Thoughts: This unit has three hardwired cables:
-4+4 pin CPU power connector
-20+4 ATX connector
-6 pin and 6+2 pin PCIe connectors

It also has a bag containing another eight cables, two of each:
-PCIe 6 pin
-PCIe 6+2 pin
-4x SATA
And one of each:
-2x Molex/2x SATA
-3x Molex/4 pin floppy power
