560 Ti FPB 179.99 Ordering another on monday
I eat my words, that's a great price, the OP should go for it. On the 470: it takes way more power, and despite suppior clock for clock it has a lower stock clock and can't clock as high.

It can't clock as high, but it doesn't need to. It's heavily underclocked from the factory. You should be able to hit 800mhz on one. You're also heavily exaggerating the power difference. It's not that big a deal.

I'd say go for a non reference 470 if you can find one.
In progress.

The power difference isn't massive, but IMO it's still a factor, especially if the OP is noise sensative. The 560ti will also OC well.

That's why I recommended a non reference. Someone was selling a 470 in the marketplace here with a VF3000F cooler on it for $200. My card is running @850mhz with the TF2 cooler, and never goes higher than 65c in games. Non reference cooling on a 470 and you're golden.

Again, clock for clock, the 470 is much stronger. It has more SP, more memory, and higher memory bandwith. The power difference isn't a factor unless you're folding 24/7 or something like that.
In progress.

Good point about the coolers, the noise would probably be fine (with OC) in that case. However the OP only has a 430W PSU, and I'm not sure that would be enough for the type OC you're talking about, especially if the OP goes for a CPU OC too.

I wouldn't want to run either card on a 430, tbh.

80+ watts is huge for the same performance in BC2. The amount of heat coming from my old non reference 470 blew me away...and LOUD!!

I'm much happier with my very quiet and MUCH less power hungry 560 Ti.

Op: Fry's Electronics has the Crysis 560 Ti for $200 after rebate from time to time.

Edit: I pull 300 from the wall when playing BC2 on system in rig at stock settings. 430 is fine.

I'm pretty sure the GTX470 is not available anymore, but oh wells.

The AMD 6870 is an excellent graphics card for its price, it can play pretty much any game you throw at it.
But if you want Nvidia graphics, then the GTX560 Ti seems to be receiving nice reviews. The MSI Hawk edition looks nice

I got a GTX470 KFA2 from TigerDirect for $169, AR. Stable at 800c, and outperforms a stock 480.
