Sorry to drag this on a lot (I just don't want to make the wrong decision) but what would be the 2GB 560 Ti card?

Thanks, I'm thinking I could save a lot of money if there is a good performance 2GB card instead of spending an extra ~$200 on 570 in SLI and ~$50 for a better PSU.

Thanks!

Are there any reviews on this, I can't seem to find any. The only reason I didn't like this option was because it didn't have the Twin Frozr III cooler.

Thanks and 560 Ti's in SLI will MAX BF3 out won't it?

I have yet to see any reviews of any 560ti 2gb cards for BF3, seen some other reviews of them for other games and there appears to not have much difference to the 1gb.
To run BF3 at Ultra settings its best to have that 2GB vram even tho the 1GB card doesn't show any difference in performance to it in other less demanding games.
With 2 560ti 2gb in SLI you will achieve Ultra settings

BTW I'm going to run BF3 tonight on my rig, I have 560ti SLI with 1GB cards , let you know what its like , only prob is my cpu isnt as up to speed as the current i7s, but I'm sure it will do the trick.

So you live in Australia?

Hey when will the new 560 Ti's (565, LE-570?) be on PcCaseGear?

I really want to purchase before the 8th of December.

Thanks, again.

Yup I'm in Sydney. I use pccasegear myself , they have a lot of good products and their prices are reasonable.
They will be out at the end of this month, definately worth the wait as they will be faster and very close to the performance of a 570, something you really should consider.

You could do it, and probably get even better performance than my older system.
It plays at Ultra level on single player quite well , but when you are online playing Multi player you do get some stutter here and there depending on the map.

My recomendation tho is to go with more vram ,even tho it plays quite well it feels like it needs more punch to make it perfect.

Now I am considering getting a GTX 580 because of the extra 500MB of VRAM. Also I don't need as much power with a 580 by itself and it will produce less heat and cause better airflow.

This is what I had in mind: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=17070

Plus I read that it can do ultra settings at my resolution at 55fps in average I think? Which is not even noticeable because anything over 30fps is noticeable right?

Thanks and tell me what you think.

Yeah, I agree. Thanks for your help + with the 580 I am getting, I'm sure I can push that 55fps up to 60+?

Thanks, and I think 1.5gb of Vram should last me around 2 years right?

Thanks!
