If you decide to go 470 that evga bstock link i provided in an earlier post has them for $160

edit here it is
http://www.evga.com/products/prodlist.asp?switch=20
yeah the GTX 570 is about $250 . about $50 over my budget. since I can't SLI , i wouldn't mind picking up the 570.

with the GTX 470 for $160, i would seriously consider picking up 2 for SLI .

can you explain to me what " B-Stock " is ? and for a GTX 570, anything top the EVGA card?

i don't know if i can be patient on waiting for a top-end 560 Ti to pop up in the open-box section.

Bstock cards come with no accessories and only a 90 day warranty no different than buying a recertified or open box card from the egg realy

If you cant go sli then I would pick up the most powerful card that you are comfortable shelling out money for

oh . only 90-day warranty? thats what knocks about $50-$80 off from retail price.

yeah, i'm looking into the HD6870 crossfireX setup on the ATI thread, and i'm trying to figure out with my motherboard is compatible with the SLI driver hack. if I get the greenlight for the SLI driver hack on my motherboard, I will probably would consider the GTX 470 . no warranty for the B-Stock cards though especially at $160 a card.

Tell me what game and, if I have it, I'll tell you how it works.
I have no problems running most games at max settings. I can run crysis 2 at extreme and dx11 at over 50 fps. I'm sure with a good overclock there will be no problems running today's games at max settings and good frame rates with a 460.
However, if u can afford a better card then u should go for it.

Honestly I would rather buy one of these than a recert card off of the egg same warranty but its up to you.

Also one card to consider if your really looking at sli 470s but you cant get the driver hack to work is the 460 2 win its faster than the gtx 580 and would cost as much as sli 470s

That's a reference 560 Ti as well.

Then consider the top-end 560 Ti's offer near 570 performance, It beats the 470 by an even larger margin.
Actually the 470 offers 570 performance and more depending on how much you OC.

Why not settle for a single 470 ? Get some overclock going and you should be fine.

570 can be overclocked as well

the 570 is roughly 20% faster than a 470 consumes less power and is quieter

you have 1 GTX 460 OC'ed correct?
you seem to not have any trouble or frames dropping from your GPU running games on MAX . how is the cooling on your gigabyte card?

yeah, i wouldn't mind SLI 470's . really good price for it thru the B-Stock link of EVGA that you gave me. yeah i've seen the GTX 460 2 Win , the dual GTX 460 GPU . it's about $400 . ):

hmm , if i go with a single power GTX 570 , and get another one down the road if SLI is possible . it would be a good choice.

i saw that EVGA has a B-Stock GTX 570, is that any good? compared to the other GTX 570 cards?
