- Just slightly lower in FPS on most games (4-8FPS) then the $500+ GTX 580
- Runs 99% of games I own close to or above 60FPS with High Quality settings @ 1920x1200
- Card runs just fine temp wise for me, even when pushed. 39-40C Idle 75C-77C when pushed
- Unlike the other review, I did not have issues when pushing this card on different games, Crysis, StarCraft II etc.
- I run my games at 1920x1200 and it is above 35FPS even on Crysis Enthusiast mode settings (2xAA - DX10 Enthusiast quality setting enabled) - Best Quality
- I also have not run into major of lag etc at all with Star Craft II. In fact I just finished playing campaign mode
My system is not so different from the previous poster's second PC

I put my configuration up as a point of reference for FPS performance.
In my case, I had 0 lockups, no overheating problems, and excellent performance. I would suggest that you have a decent sized case with excellent cooling and power supply.
In Comparison to the suggested 6870 Card:
- GTX draws about 65W more power under full game load
- runs about 14C Higher Under load
- GTX 570 is about 10-20% faster on most games in FPS
One thing I have yet to try to see if its even worth using my OLD GTX 285 SSC card as a Physix card.
* Handles every game out there including Crysis 2 with max settings at 40-60FPS!
* Low power requirement considering other cards...
* Easy to add a 2nd card in future for SLI
* Great Drivers! I choose Nvidia simply because AMD's software driver support is horrible compared to Nvidia.
I actually had to RMA the first card--it was making the same whining noise described in another review. It did not make the noise in the desktop--only when playing an actual game. It never got louder going from Rome: Total War to Crysis. It was always the same level of noise. Honestly, it wasn't even that loud, but if you pay $300+ for a card, you should expect it to be silent if other reviewers are saying it is. As soon as I returned it (RETURN IT THROUGH AMAZON--EVGA HAS A HORRIBLE RMA PROCESS--more on this below), the new one came and is completely silent. Therefore, when you first get the card, keep an eye (or ear) on it before your return period is up because the quality control on this specific model may not be the best.
Dang...you won't have any problems running games with this baby. DX11 compatible, 3D compatible, and ready to kick some @$$. This sweet little piece of metal and plastic can be pushed to the limits and still have room for sloppy seconds. I played Crysis on Ultra and AA filtering bumped up to the highest setting and was still averaging 45 FPS. Get yourself an SLI setup and you'll be 60+ FPS in no time.
Note on RMA Process:
When you receive this card, you'll notice a sticker inside the box telling you NOT to RMA through the retailer you bought it from, but rather through EVGA. Why pass up Amazon's great customer service for this?Read more ›
(The GTX-570 is the sweet spot just below the more expensive GTX-580).
Shipped way faster than anticipated (placed order very late on a Thursday received on Saturday).
Best if you download drivers via Nvidia's web site for the latest drivers and select "Clean Install" (from the installation wizard) to clean out any old drivers from your last video card.
Only bump in the road was (first attempt loading driver software from supplied CD)...I lost my internet connection. I did a "System Restore" to just before installing software and got my internet connection back. Called Nvidia right away for help and they were fast to answer my call and talk me along the installation process again suggesting the "Clean Install" option.
Everything is working great!
Thank you Amazon for shipping so FAST!
Thank you Nvidia for great product support!
