Just got my Gigabyte GTX570, replacing my Ati 5850. Been a while since I had a nvidia card but so far it seems pretty quick and a noticeable improvement in some games like Stalker Call of Pripyat. My PSU (500watt Antec which came with my Sonata case) has a hard time though, ramping the fan up to very annoying high levels. Guess I'll need a better one too

Anyway, any games I should definitely get to see what my GTX570 is capable of?

Well if your psu is not up to the task I wouldn't stress your card until you get another psu.

+1

500w is cutting it awfully fine. Assuming you have a reasonably high end machine.

Wow, cards are a little pricier over there

Btw, what switch do you use between your various devices?

That would make an excellent PhysX card.

This card is a beast! Destroys my GTX 295. Was testing Crysis last night, 16QAA, all enthusiast settings and I was still averaging low 50's FPS.
