Gv n580so 15i bios not updating
I agree, but I'm not sure that's the only difference between the cards.
If you're looking for the best performance/price ratio, I suggest having a look around some forums and picking up 2 480s. I'd say the Direct CU 2 card is the way to go – just make your mind up about SLI (if you would like to in the future etc) as this card will potentially be a show stopper...
Someone overclocked their Asus card to 1519MHz core clock on liquid nitrogen (though it isn't really relevant I just thought it was interesting : P).
It's personal preference, but I for one would prefer the cooler temperatures and lower noise levels, even if I am (potentially, arguably not) sacrificing a few MHz.
you'll be able to clock to that with whatever you get. Doing that fans max at 60% at very reasonable noise levels (I can't hear it over my PWM CPU fan – thinking of updating that). I've had it up to 960Mhz stress tested with no crashes at all, but no need to run it that high for gaming – I'm only running a single 1920x1080. Here's an interesting thread... If you're looking for the best performance/price ratio, I suggest having a look around some forums and picking up 2 480s.
But i am also wondering if the MSI Ge Force GTX 580 Twin Frozr II Overclocked would be ok but am also wondering if its worth finding a MSI Ge Force GTX 580 Twin Frozr III Lightning edition. Then use Afterburner to control the fan better (Lightning fan is louder than CU II as it ramps up faster / earlier, but using afterburner you can tune it down making it very good). So it's a good time to upgrade and have it cost almost nothing.
In regards to the Gigabyte Super overclocked version of the gtx580 why wouldnt one just buy the Gigabyte Ge Force GTX 580 Ultra Durable for less and just OC it up myself? That's the reason I'm upgrading :-) Well if you can get a Lightning at good price, grab that.
Is there any difference at all for the extra or is it just the clock increase? Are there any better option or good deals for these 4 cards? I assume you're not after some of those 'monster' cards but something that's little sane.
now if the 'GPU Gauntlet' is a genuine GPU selection process then one would agree that the etxra would be worth it to ensure a top class/golden sample GPU.
However, if this is all just huff and puff then the is wasted... I agree, but I'm not sure that's the only difference between the cards.Do the UD cards have the same 12 2 power phase design?
