GTX580 or GTX560

Recommended Posts

I'll be ordering my new PC over the next few days and was wondering if it's worth getting the 580 over the 560, the 580 is quite a lot more in price but would I notice much difference between the two in FSX? Thanks guys.

I doubt you would see much of a difference in FSX, since it's the CPU that is important. I have a 1GB 560Ti in my i5 2500k powered PC, and FSX runs great.

580 is a big jump up over the 560. If you desire high levels of AA for image quality.....go with the 580

16xS AA is perfectly fine for FSX, and the 560Ti has no problem with that.

Hey Chris, what's the difference between the 560 and the 560Ti?

16xS with a 560Ti? Wow..... I wouldn't run 16xS with a 580! Perf hit is way too much IMHO. Each to their own of course.

I am not an expert on graphics cards, but this link shows you the (relatively minor) differences between the two cards...... http://www.anandtech...ottom-overclock

16xS is hardly an AA setting that requires insane amounts of power. The GTX580 should be able to handle it with ease.
