Thank you in advance for your input More about : input ct1615 a b Î Nvidia April 13, 2010 2:18:25 PM depends on your time frame, if you plan to build ASAP then go with the 260's, if you can wait I would get the 470 since supply is going to be an issue once these cards are released. Personally, I would just go with ATI. Look at Nvidia's next cycle of cards. m 0 l ICURNVS April 13, 2010 2:50:03 PM Supply could be a issue, but will be managable. but will a single 470 be better than the 260's in sli? on the charts listed here 2 260's are better than 1 285 on most of the charts, but since the 470 data is limited im having to make a choice based a little more on faith and opinion than data. you would be hard pressed for me to buy a ATI card ever... m 0 l Related resources Looking To Upgrade a Budget PC, Need Input - Forum Hi All Looking For Input On My First Ever PC Build - Forum Looking for some input on my temps - Forum Looking for some input to a budget build - Forum Looking for input on new AMD APU based build - Forum Can't find your answer ?

From what I have seen the 470 jumps around offering 285-295 performance. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gtx-480,258... m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
