In terms of raw performance, I'd go for GTX 470 SLI, if I were concerned with power or heat issues, the HD 5970 instead. jfem June 26, 2010 3:32:20 AM I agree with the GTX 470 SLI. It is definitely faster than a GTX 480, and faster than the HD 5970 at similar price.

At 86c the 5970 isn't exactly an AC unit and in SLi the GTX470 seems to run cooler than that hot old ATi brick depending on which sites graphs are looked at. wa1 a c 189 U Graphics card June 26, 2010 2:48:13 PM I guess you're right, MM...
