Gv n580so 15i bios not updating
Buying from overseas is a problem if your card breaks and needs to be returned for warranty. If that's the case, I would go for the Asus Direct Cu II.
I think you do probably get a better GPU and extra features with the SOC card, I'm just not sure of this – the information is hard to find (let us know if you can find more detail).Although I spoke too soon, they added another onto the price because it was 4lbs over the estimate so 0 including shipping but still ~ less than anywhere in Oz that I could find... but the reason I haven't given individual score for the Lightning is because it also clocks to the same levels, I could not get it beyond 955-960 @ core (so obviously it scores the same).I even changed the Lightning's BIOS and raised the SW OC limit to 1.21, still wouldn't budge higher.Having said all that I got my SOC for 5 (special deal from my local PC shop), so I never really had to decide between the two.My vote is for the MSI GTX 580 Lightning Xtreme Edition.
Temps are no issue on these cards as you'd know, the coolers are very good ..
