Did you hear? NVIDIA introduced a new GPU this week! It's making the rounds, and now companies are jumping at the chance to be first on the block with new products based around the GeForce GTX 570. ZOTAC is one of the first to jump, with a new GTX 570 that uses a 732MHz engine clock, 480 unified shaders, a 1464MHz shader clock and 1280MB of GDDR5 memory.

There's also a 320-bit memory interface, PCIe 2.0 interface, DirectX 11 support, an HDMI 1.4a port and a full copy of Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands to really show off the new muscle. There's no price or release set yet, but considering that many PC makers are already offering these new cards on full rigs, retail units should be on sale shortly.

Zotac is not the best brand I can think of, They recently made a GTX460 with 2GB of RAM on it that had to be pulled from the market. NewEgg quit selling it. Not such a good recommendation,.......[:S]

But EVGA has a lifetime warranty and their card is overclocked already. It's right here,....

Also: Many of the other brand 570's are in stock and on sale at NewEgg Already.
