    Stay with the FX560 or Upgrade to a FX570

    Hi all.

    An IT friend of mine has come into ownership of some Quadro FX 570's and he is offer me one for free. I've been check out the specs online. There's not much in it between the 560 and 570. Granted the 560 has 128mb and the 570 has 256mb but the 560 uses GDDR3 memory while the 570 uses GDDR2. Is it worth upgrading to the FX570? I'm going to seen any differences?

    Thanks

    You could setup a twin video card system for full screen playback on a third monitor...

    Sadly I only have the one PCI 16x xpress slot. So I'm unsure which card would be best to use.
