@OP: like everyone else has said, I would've SLI'ed the 470's, but two 460's are a stellar price/performance combo.
HD6950 is not much faster 20% is the maximum and an overclocked GTX 470 to 750 core can gain this 20% speed.
50%? I guess this is the GTX 580 who is 50% faster the GTX 470. Not the HD6950 which is no match for the GTX 580 by any means.... HD6950 can't compete even against the GTX 480 let alone the 580
HD6950 is hardly faster than HD5870 which is hardly faster than GTX 470.
OP overclocked his GTX 470 to 780 MHz (in system info) core which is as fast as a stock GTX 480 and much faster than HD6950 Edited by HeadlessKnight - 6/18/11 at 6:59am
