1.5gb+1.5gb= 3gb. Don't see your logic here. Have to consider the resolution your using also.
The VRAM is shared so both cards can still only use 1.5GB, they don't get 3GB.
Maybe was a good move cancelling the card. You should be able to run most things fairly high still and hold on for gk110 or maybe try to find another 580, even second hand, to tide you over? I did this with my 460s before I got my 680.
You don't see my logic!!?
Then let me explain, why upgrade now for such a small performance boost when the next gpu's are around the corner.
Patience, that's my logic.
If you are always waiting to upgrade then you end up waiting forever.
Thing is if you feel you need upgrade then upgrade, its simple as that.
...what I meant is 2x 580s would give you a significant performance boost. Also not sure why you'd be too worried about vram unless your using past 1080p or multi-monitor.
But yes patience would be the cheaper alternative. :eek3:
says the man with the imaginary 790.
there's some nice games literally round the corner too, i.e. release date has been given.
Tbh if i had 2x580s there is no way i woulda upgraded unless it was 780 or 790 and even then i may hold off until 880/890.
you ever had a 580?, i've had two, they're not bad, however a 670 i'm much rather have tbh.
haha that's a good one, my friend are you ****ing blind? can't you see the (most likely) that means i'm GONNA BUY THE DAMN THING...
anyway, PM, you made a stupid decision..period.
But is it really worth the price/performance ratio going from a 580 to a 670....personally i do not think it is.
Perhaps only if you had a dual setup in mind in near future, you could get one now then one laters when needed, admittedly i use no AA in games but i'd still imagine a 670 could run the games i play currently just as well as the 680, v synced @60fps, but sure i've no idea really how taxing AA is tbh.
its not worth it to me. 20% faster than a 2 year old 580. meh. has a couple 680 in my shopping cart a few times. 30% is better but not enough for me.
if you had a gen3 mobo + cpu you'd squeeze a tad more outta it, 580 max is around 950mhz eh? 680 max is around 1.25ghz ..yup around 30% then but it's that vram barrier eh? that's what pushed me over the fence.
580 is pci e 2.0. and the performance increase is even more meh when comparing SB to IB
I just peeked at your mobo is all, tbh if i had a 2600k @4.8 (and i bet it's very stable too) i'd be sitting tight also ..perhaps.
Well, I get a good 110+ (avg) FPS in BF3 with everything maxed out. Don't know why a single 670 wouldn't get 60.
