i want at least the same perfomance but with with dx11 (skyrim is killing me maxed out with AO 13fps dips)
so would like your input 1 or 2 470s i want better min frame rates in skyrim!

IF you can keep the heat of the 470s tamed then i think its worth the upgrade. I'd overclock your cpu to at least 4.0. Skyrim runs better off higher clocks on the CPU, at least that's what I saw when I was reading around these forums.


Im reading around these forums and it seems people are getting a hit and miss with AO using nvidia cards.... http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?s=b2ccc713fd778860989bca583e4f904f&t=2262672

You should be able to but the 470 fans may be loud to you. It's though once you have a headset and music on then who cares smile.gif. Clock your cpu higher if you can... the more the merrier!
