Re: What setup would you choose from the following?
Well, now days Xfire/SLI scaling has really brought it to a level where you must consider it.
I think at the end of the day it's $$$ vs performance
I was going to consider 570 or 6950/6970 until I seen 460SLI benchmarks....which beat single 580GTX (in most games)
Got a 2nd 460 for $100 bucks
$100 beats spending $400-500
Even if I didn't have a 460, I would certainly be considering XFire 6850s/6870s or 460/560s.
For 300-400 you get a LOT of performance over 580....
