Decisions decisions

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi guys
After receiving a DOA PNY gtx 560ti got a full refund and now I'm thinking about what to buy instead.
There is only one catch it has to be a reference design pcb because I want to get them wet

I could get a Zotac GTX 470 Amp for the same price(I heard they are great overclockers)

Or a GTX 460ssc+ or maybe 2

What do you guys think I should do?

PS: I only play with one monitor at 1080p

Thanks

oops forgot to say my budget is 200-230 euros so 300-330 dollars

470's are great OC'ers, and on water you can really crank the volts and clocks. You can match stock 580 perf w/a 470 on water, put it that way. Esp. at 1080p.

If you can't afford a 570, then there's no better card than a 470 on water is what I'm trying to get at here

I had a 470 at 850Mhz on air. I can only imagine what it could have done on water.
