I'm curious how much faster the 570 @950 would be than the 470 at 900. Since they're so close clock for clock I imagine the difference would be imperceptible in actual gaming.

Other than benchmark bragging rights the 470 seems like a much better buy on water.

$140? More like $80 to $100

There has been some"down-low" insta promotions for the EVGA 570 going on for quite some time(newegg). Snagging it when it's around $285 to 300 is very well worth it.

30% increased all-around speeds is worth it to me. And 570 shines at 1920 resolutions[especially with the better SPs and TMUs] Don't expect much OC from the 470 unless you're willing to drop some bucks to go under water.

Remember, 570 isn't the one that's the overpriced junk. That award goes to the 580. 570's value for speed is just about right, and it's going to be primary card when i build a new machine very soon.

Clock for clock the 570 is about 5% faster than a 470, on water the clock speed difference is going to be between 50-100MHz depending on how good a clocking 470 you get or how bold you feel with the 570s voltages.

Both cards are pretty decent, in the end you have to decide if the performance difference warrants the price difference. I didn't feel it did, I got two 470s for the price of a single 570, but that's just me
Agreed. The fact that the GTX470 has a proven track record, monster overclocking potential, maxes out most games, and can be bought for ~$150 has win-win written all over it.

The choice to me is obvious especially since you are watercooling.

This thread has so much GTX470 love.

With that put aside, a 470 doesn't suck, not by a long shot. They will play everything out there today at ultra settings, though you will probably need to lower AA/AF a bit, but that's about it. Be warned though, they do run hot so if you want to SLI them you better put them under water or have excellent air cooling in your case. Two 470's in SLI is faster than a single 580, so for ~$400, you can't beat it if you have the cooling and PSU to handle it.
570 is NOT faster then a 480. 480 has more memory and bandwidth. The only reason the 570 benches higher is because its clocked higher

FWIW, I love my giga 470 (non-reference). It hits 800@.9v, and 950@1.07v

Just got a z68 board, and with my next paycheck I will be getting a 2500k and a 2nd 470

SO EXCITED!

Don't expect much OC from 470 ? I call 800-850MHz OC on AIR from 600 stock a pretty massive OC. PLus the difference between them is far from being 30%.

This thread has so much GTX470 love.
Ypu wont get any love from me. My 470 is a useless waste of silicon.
