Hi all, my weakspot when it comes to computers is graphics cards...

I have my new build,

Asus Rampage IV Extreme
Intel Core i7-3960X 3.30GHz (Sandybridge-E) Socket LGA2011
G.Skill RipJawsZ 32GB (8x4GB) DDR3 PC3-14900C9 1866MHz
Coolermaster HAF X case
EK-KIT H3O - Supreme LT 360 water cooling kit
2 x G.Skill Turbulence II Memory Cooler


I want Nvidia and ideally Asus cards
my budget for graphics is around £500
Whats the best way to spend that?

on 1 580x
on 2 570x
or on 4 560x

580 still does a good job on all games - get a nice CUII, overclock it to 950/1100 and call it a day 🙂
now benching on: LN2 | 3770K | Maximus V Extreme | 2x GTX 580 Matrix Platinum | SSD | Cooler Master 1500W
Proud to be ASUS PowerUser!
