this is more evident/noticeable with multi-monitor setups, so it might not do that much on a single monitor, but from personal experience, when i ran a single 1080p monitor, my GTX480 SLI was enough for anygame with all the AA i wanted........this is why i suggested GTX480SLI

So I decided to go with the GTX 480's, mostly because I already bought one. I've already sold two of my 470's for $300 plus a 500GB Barracuda Drive. Now to sell the last one, and get my second card; possibly a third if I do Surround gaming.
