Looking to replace my GTX470

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Title more or less says it all. I'm happy with my 470 but it's gets hot and since I no longer have the ability to use the two I have in SLI, I think it's time for an upgrade. I'm looking for a single card around $200. No real set budget but I'd like to keep it 200-250ish. I have no preference to brand. I'm just looking for something I can overclock pretty well and something not as hot. Any suggestions?

The 7950 fits in your price range, but if you spend a little more you can get a 7970. You can actually pick up a 7950 on amazon for like 170-190 after rebate. Pretty good deal! Both of them overclock really well, but are still subject to the silicon lottery so YMMV.
