I am leaning more and more to grabbing a 580 (unless the new AMD cards surprise me) as I haven't had a new one since my old 8800.

Questions. Can I run games with Physx using just the one card? It seems to be a fantastic f@lder so that is good news and sort of pushing me towards the Nvidia card.

Any known issues? Anything in the immediate timeline that I may want to wait for?



Currently I am looking at the EVGA super-clocked version.

Just ordered 2 EVGA 570s

I was really set against going SLI but reading 3D reviews I thought it would be best for maximum gaming experience. Especially with Crysis 2 not too far off.

Wife is still making me wait until Christmas to open the new 50" 3D plasma that will be my new monitor

Yup. Honestly, I don't see a huge difference...

Why did you "upgrade"? Step-up?
I just wanted the 570. i read that it ran much cooler than the 480, and that got my interest.
