Zotac GTX 580 Amp! Edition

Graphics Cards

Conclusion

Zotac have produced a bit of a monster here. It sure is expensive but it does perform. In terms of FPSvsCost, it doesn’t have anywhere near as much bang for buck as the midrange; but you knew that anyway. It also draws a lot of power so won’t be too kind on your electricity bill; but again, you’d expect that.

Bottom line? This card has a few of the bad points you expect, but it still maintains good temps and it remains quiet; and itt rules when it comes to performance. If you’ve got deep pockets, this is probably the card for you.

Pros

Great performance
Overclocked out the box, and goes further
Good bundle
Reasonably quiet

Cons

Quite big power draw compared to AMD cards
Reference cooler
Expensive
