Great Card, Great Price

by Jeff on 3/6/2011

Huge performance increase over my GTX 280 and also a lot less noisy. The included drivers have a bug that causes the Nvidia Control Panel to become inaccessible. Installing beta 267.24 drivers fixed it though. I usually order from Newegg but because they didn't have any GTX 570's in stock (and still don't), I decided to go with Buy.com. Processing took a little longer than I expected but was otherwise smooth sailing. EVGA's Lifetime Warranty can't be beat.

Awesome Card EVGA Service and Lifetime Warranty

by L.M. on 7/9/2011

Card seems very well constructed. This is the reference version of this card with the vapor chamber cooler which keeps the GPU at an acceptable temperature while keeping the fan silent. I didn't trust the smaller GTX 570 model on the GTX 560TI PCB and cooler because: 1) it is apparently for cost cutting measures. 2) This reference version uses external exaust design and a vapor chamber cooler. They made this card with a vapor chamber cooler and not regular heatsink for a reason. When I am playing a stressful game at 60% fan speed I can just barely hear it over my quiet NZXT 120mm fans. I chose Nvidia over AMD because of some issues with my 6950 I had. Nvidia offers more in terms of image quality and color settings. If you are looking for AMD equivalent to this card look for the Radeon HD 6970, but I am familiar with Nvidia drivers and never had the DX11 Crysis 2 errors that AMD users reported. This is a great card and I reccomend everyone considering this card to purchase the reference version over the shorter version for more effective cooling.
