My System Specs

Default Price Check GTX 580 & GTX 570

Not sure if this should be in price check (I really do want to know what is best price and best performance) or if this should be in the VIDEO Forum (mods feel free to move)

I'm curious I know the 7970 and the 680 just came out recently and both are great (I think I like the 680 better) anyway I can't afford that at the moment but I have some options on used equipment.

Is a ZOTAC GTX 580 worth $350? (or is this not much of a deal)?
Is a EVGA GTX 580 worth $350? (^)

Also I have an option to get 2 GTX 570's for $400 how would that compare (deal wise) and would it out perform the other cards above>?

Thanks!

2x570's would destroy a single 580, for only $50 more I would get those if your PSU has the juice.

Alright now if I could talk the 580's down to $300 would that be a better deal then?

Or would I be best to go 570's either way (even at $400)

Thanks!

Id say..... even the 570's at this point are even going to drop in price.... id say an offer of $300 would be fair for a 580 since kepler's out now.

Grab those 570's, they usually go for $250ish a piece,and they crush a single 580. I already saw a 580 on here for $300 plus shipping, so $300 is a good offer on the 580 if you want that over SLI 570's.
