I ditched the 470s for 1x of each of these:


EVGA GTX 680 FTW 4GB and Asus ENGT 430 DC

Couldn't believe how much cooler and quieter the 680s are over the 470s. It's like night and day.

Yes they run hot, i also tried this:



Buth the 470's cant be used in 4-way sli.

and for the 680 4gb i think i will need 2 of them to call it a performance upgrade (maybe not i dont know for sure).
i read that the extra vram doesnt help much in today's games even at 5760x1080 and that it has a to small bus.
Thats why i'm not sure on upgrading.

The heat and noise wil be a lot less buth they cost like 1200 or so and just for that i dont think its worth.

Can't speak for tri-SLI'd 470s, but everything my 470s were doing at 90% GPU utilization, the 680 is doing at 55% with about 150W less draw. As far as the extra VRAM goes, 4GB is overkill and I might never make use of it, but I hold onto stuff longer than most folks, and the 4GB might be useful two years from now.
