I am upgrading to a GeForce GTX 470 (Fermi) SuperClocked 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5, I was wondering how much of an improvement it will be over my 9600 GSO 364mb. Will it be like running two 9600 GSO's in SLI? or better? I already bought the thing so I am just wondering if it's going to be better than my Dual 9600 GSO's or not... and if it's a step towards better, I may just go ahead and buy a second 470. Any words you guys want to share?

Best solution

dude i have the 470gtx on my rig, bought it since launch and never had a problem with it. Can run every game i play just perfectly fine. Hmmm of course you will se a HUGEEEEEEEEEEEEE benefit from your previous 9600 GSO sli configuration , but im worried if your cpu will hold you back what are the rest of your specs?

oh and also make sure you got enough juice on your PSU to power the 470, its been known to be a power hungry card. Anyway great buy and hope you enjoy it :=

I'll say it, you shouldn't have bought the GTX470. A GTX460 with a 20%+ OC would match it while using less power. A stock GTX560 would beat it. Only way I would have bought that card is if I got it CHEAP.

Of course it will be faster then two 8800GSs, I mean 9600GSOs. I think even a GTS250 is faster then that combo.

It should eat the dual 9600s.
However, 474545b makes a few good points. Returning the card to get the superior GTX560 may, or may not, be a useful option, it'll depend on where you live and where you bought it.
As for the SLI option, we'll need detailed system specs including monitor resolution, powersupply and operating system (and if the OS is 32 or 64 bit) before we can give a accurate asessment.

not only 2,it will even eat 3 way slied 9600gsos or even 3 9600gt.that gtx 470 can max out any game in directx11 with playable framerates.even 3 9600gt cant do that.

I actually just built the computer, I was advised on getting two EVGA 01G-P3-1380-KR GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) SSC+ 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI but, at the last minutes, I thought I upgraded to the 470. I actually over extended my budget by $600 but, it's nothing I won't be able to rebound from in 2 months. On the upside, I can always sell the 470 to someone in my family (my younger brother) if I find a better combo

ya def ur performance will go up by a long shot, and id recommand against buying a geforce gtx 470 as they heat alot and consumme more power, id buy instead a gtx 560 or 570 because there suppose to consume less power 1 and 2 they dont overheat as much, so ive heard,
