    What's better for my set up and potential upgrades to my set up?

    Spec is in Sig, I am a big flight sim x fan and so seeing the visuals in all their glory is a big factor for me, however I currently play on 1400x900, but have ambitions to dual screen with same monitor. I also play Crysis and Skyrim and am waiting the new MS Flight as well as GTA. Basically will either of these cards bottleneck on my set up, if so why and overall for price and performance which is the better card to use.

    I would get the 570. If you are going to have dual screens it surely won't be for gaming? If it is for desktop use only then I would also get a really cheap second card to stop the non gaming monitor from causing the GPU to spin up all the time.

    If you will be gaming on dual screens then I would advise a 570 with lots of VRAM as this will help with the high resolution. Maybe an EVGA GTX 570 SC, I think they cost around the £250 mark.

    I love my standard EVGA 570 and I game at 2560 x 1440, just wish it had a bit more VRAM!

    I would suggest selling it and upgrade to the next series when it comes out.

    I would keep it as no one knows how good or expensive the new stuff will be let alone when it will be released.
