470 vs 570 (SLI) - Page 2

Yeah if I go with 570s I'd get the Twin Frozr III

The 470s sure ran hotter, draw more power. but they are better values.
You can get two of these and OC them to match 570s stock performance. which is not too hard to get & you will be happy by saving $250.
Also they will not be that noisy. The stock reference cooler sucks on GTX 470/480 which always makes the infamous loudness/hotness issues around them . But If you get a non-reference GTX 470/480 you will be very happy with the performance & value .

Some things to consider...

Staryoshi did a review of the two cards when the 570 was released.

According to his results, the 570 is only ~6% faster than the 470, clock-for-clock, across all his benches. Surprising considering that's actually less than the difference between the 560 Ti and the 560.

With that in mind, the 470 is easily the better price/performance option (as are all of the 400 series cards atm).

That said, the 470s are very close to being EOL. If you're planning on just buying one card now and adding another later, you'd almost certainly have to buy your 2nd 470 used. They're already OOS/discontinued at most e-tailers as it is.

The 570 is faster, cooler, more efficient, clocks higher on average, and has a longer shelf life. And if you're just buying one now, you'll probably be able to score your second card at a much lower price if you wait it out (Black Friday sales anyone ).

I think I'd lean towards the 570 personally.

Yeah I was planning on grabbing one card now and adding another around October/November. I think I'd rather go the safe route since I'd rather not have to buy a used card.
