I currently have 2 Nvidia 470 in SLI format.

I am looking to upgrade to one card (due to heat issues with the SLI).

Do you have any cost effective ($400 or less) ideas?


Thank you.

Have you looked at a better cooling option for your set up?

Cant you remove one of the 470s and check the temperatures?

I wouldnt have thought just 2 470s in sli would be giving you that much of an issue with heat.

This is the case / PC that I have.

Just imagine 2 video cards, they run at max fan and around 89c while playing the BF3 beta.

Should I go NVidia or go ATI, I have heard two sides from multiple friends / gaming buddies.
