Go for it! I can guarantee you it will run perfectly fine maxed with 470's in SLI. Heck, I think 460's will work fine too! I hope my 460 will still do the trick.

Yikes! You might want to get one soon. The options for 470s tend to be disappearing from Newegg:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...%20%28Fermi%29

I would get one now while they are still making them. You may miss out if you wait until BF3 and have to upgrade to a new card all together... which may not be a bad idea.

Well if money is anywhere in the equation and if ur not gonna be playing a whole lot of new games, mainly waiting for a few titles, then just wait it out with ur current card, save up and get the flagship of the next gen.

'Grats Fox

470's are the dark horse of the Fermi lineup. They never get any love

But nicely OC'd pair in SLI, at 1920 resolution, they will chew up and spit out anything you throw at them, aside from Metro completely out. You're going to dig the setup I bet.

Thanks.
