GTX470 ---> ????

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I've got a watercooled GTX470 that OC's really well...but I'm getting out of PC gaming and am looking for something that will run cooler. If you look at my system, it's h8red. I'm looking at selling my 470 and EK block for another card. What do you think I can get for it, and what should I move to? I don't need better performance, just something else.

I would recommend just going to a 7770 if you aren't gaming anymore. You're still going to get enough performance to do anything besides hardcore gaming, but with much less heat and power usage. Just my thoughts.

i would suggest a 7850. it is much more power efficient, and it runs cooler, not to mention it would be a good upgrade.

I was definitely hoping for a 7000 series card, as nVidia hasn't released a sub-$300 600-series card. I'd be totally cool with a 500 or 6000 series set of cards, too. I was also hoping to get one compatible with a waterblock. So, I'd like a GPU not much more than whatever my EVGA GTX470 (good OC'er) and an EK Full Copper/Plexi GTX 470 will bring in, and I'd be willing to buy a waterblock on top of that.

Get the HIS Iceq HD 7850 for USD 225 after mail in rebate.

My only problem with the 7850 is there are no waterblocks for it....right? I'm hoping to keep everything under water. Otherwise, I'm probably going to be selling my whole rig and starting from scratch with a 2500k.

Next month NVIDIA is releasing the 660 for 199-249, or so the rumor goes tongue.gif

The problem with the rumours is it was expected GTX 660 or GTX 660 Ti would launch on June 25. that date has come and gone. there is no indication of whether it will launch in July. some clearly say it will not launch.

http://www.kitguru.net/components/graphic-cards/faith/huge-gtx570-overstock-delays-gtx660-until-august/

http://www.obr-hardware.com/2012/06/geforce-gtx-60-wil-not-be-launched-in.html

And why would you want to watercool a HD 7850. it does not cross 60c when overclocked. the review shows the card running below 60c under full load when overclocked.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n3bjl4jagPc

HD 7850 (1 Ghz) gives you GTX 570 performance . At 1.2 Ghz you get close to GTX 580 perf. What more can you ask for from a card for less than USD 250.

http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Powercolor/HD_7850_PCS_Plus/31.html

BF3 1920 X 1200 4XAA

HD 7850 (1 Ghz) - 45.4
HD 7870 (1 Ghz) - 49.5
HD 7850(1240 Mhz) - 50.2
GTX 580 - 51.7

HD 7850 is the best option. in fact the price on the HIS iceq HD 7850 went up by 20 bucks. keep watching and when the price gets to USD 225 after rebates , grab one. thumb.gif

That's probably what I'll do. If I can just sell my GTX470 and EK Full Cu Block......I'll snag one of those 7850's.
