Windows 7: GXT560 and GTX570 comparison

Thats the card I have. The Superclocked reference design, and been very happy with it.
Good choice for those , like me, who want a little extra performance over reference design 570s, yet do not OC thier GPUs.



With eVGAs cards, they have different versions,and Skews other than just Superclocked or reference.
It will essentially come down to what heatsink the card uses, and what warranty it has.


Personally, I would avoid the 570 HD, and get just the regular 570.
Like this one:
Newegg.com - EVGA 012-P3-1570-AR GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

The reason is, these intake air from the case, and exhaust all hot air out the back.
The HD will exhaust partially outside the case, and partially inside the case.

The HD is OK if have you a case with really good airflow, and the card itself is the same. Only the HS is different.
But I would prefer the reference design cooling. I just think its better TBH.

Also, with eVGA cards, notice the last 2 letters of the skew number.
A card that ends with -AR carries a Lifetime warranty if you register in 30days.
The -KR is 3 years.
Your call if Lifetime is worth a bit extra.

So you could, save around $20 or so getting a 3year warranty card and OC yourself.
Or, pay $20 more and get a Lifetime warranty on a card with the factory OC.

The 570 needs 2 PCI 6-Pin power connectors.

Wasnt sure about the adaptor but .. I looked at the accesories that came with my card, and it did come with a adaptor.
(2 Molex --> 1PCI 6pin)

But, do not overlook your Power Supply.


One of these cards with the rest of the system, should require approx a 550W or larger PSU.
But most importantly, 38amps on the 12v rail.

Take the side panel off and get the info from the label on the PSU. And a 850W with only one 6 pin PCI-E connector doesn't sound like much of a 850W PSU.
