500 series brought nothing different to the 400 series except cost cutting for Nvidia.

Nah there weren't more CUDA cores or anything.

No. The GTX 550 has FEWER cores than the GTX 460. by quite a margin too. Mind you a GTX 560 has FEWER cores than a GTX 470 and is slower AND costs more. The only thing that the 500 series have going for them is the higher overclocking capability. Which, if you look closely enough, the GTX 470 is known for pushing another 250mhz out of the core. So the overclockability hasn't changed, just the stock speeds have gone up.

The GTX 470 is the best choice here.

Oh and if you attempt to retort that the 560/580 is what you were talking about having "more cores", the OP has $200 to spend, not $270 and definitely not $500. Not only that but a GTX 470 is roughly 2/3 a GTX 580 for 1/3 the price. Win.

Yeah but it has a 5, which is bigger than 4.


Ok I'm trolling it seems. (sorry you didn't catch my original sarcasm - or his eh - double whammy)

Why then did you post a miniature essay on facts that would be blatantly obvious and accessable to anyone with a brain and a 90 yr old grandma's grasp of google?
