    Personally I would go for the 570, its faster, and provides a better upgrade plan
    if you ever decide to SLI/ Crossfire.
  3. moto neck ....those are my choices right now...a 570 its more expansive right? its not about i dont wanna buy that...i have 2 deals....470 for 100$ and 6870 for 150$ now there its my limit somewhere....as money wise

  5. Best answer
    The GTX 470 is 5% faster than HD 6870 and comparable with a GTX 560 Ti
    I would definitely go for GTX 470 if it's in a good condition, it's used right ?

    lol dude..

    Do you notice it says 'rating' chart? How is that a benchmark???

    Only way to easily compare is for example Frames per Second. One cannot go on mysterious 'rating'.

    Take a look at those...
  10. Think and read more before you post, it's not a shame to learn.
    The link i provided is based on Games have been tested on Both cards, it compares it via the FPS term, the better GPU gives a higher FPS (Frames Per Seconds)
    The links you provided are based on people's opinions and thoughts, no real world benchmarks provided or proven.
