Need a card that runs cool

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have a GTX 470 and looking for an AMD equilivent that Idles and runs cooler...

I have very poor AC circulation in my room so i need a card that runs cool, however i dont want to sacrifice performance. Are there any cards that allow this?

I think an Radeon HD 6870 is roughly the equivalent of a 470. I want to say it would have lower power consumption, therefore creating less heat with lower temps.

Don't hold me to that though...

Yeah I am pretty sure the 470 is known for being a small space heater lol

HD 6870 is no match for GTX 470 in DX11 games. the VLIW4 architecture is weak in modern games like crysis 3 , farcry 3, bf3 with MSAA. I would say go for a HD 7850 2GB. but it will cost you more. you can sell a GTX 470 for USD 100. HD 7850 cards sell for USD 160

HD 7850 can overclock to 1.15 ghz matching HD 7870 / GTX 580 at those clocks. thumb.gif

Thank you very much for this... I thought this was the case but didnt want to say anything.

I previously traded my GTX 460s for the HD6800 series so i didnt this a 470 would still be in the same area.
