GTX470 -> GTX670, worth upgrading?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
A friend of mine is selling his GTX670, and I'm considering buying it from him. How much would be a good price for it and why? We haven't agreed on the price yet, so I'd like to hear some opinions about it, how much should I pay for it? I was looking at some benchmarks and the card seems to perform a lot better than my current GTX470.

Also, I am a student, so I obviously don't have a lot of money so that's why I'm not entirely sure if it's worth it. rolleyes.gif


Also, a bit off topic, but not important enough for creating a new thread about this, he's selling his nexus rx8500 PSU, anyone happen to have any experience about this, is it quiet? And how much would be a good price for it to pay?

I have a GTX 470, had a GTX 670 & currently have HD 7950.

GTX 670/ 7950 are about 60%+ faster than GTX 470, and sometimes more than double ( I got more than double the fps in modded Skyrim).
Not to mention the 670 is a much quieter card than GTX 470 and runs significantly cooler too.

DiRT 3 (Very old, before I sold my 670) :-
GTX 670 @ stock
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

GTX 470 @ 800/3600 (QDR)

As you can see the stock GTX 670 is about 62.5% faster than the overclocked GTX 470.

The GTX 670 is a good deal faster then an 470 and a worthy upgrade. Price wise its a bit hard to say as it depends on the model but where I live I'v seen new ones go for as low as 270€. I'd say offer him 200€ at first and don't pay more then 250€.

I've just checked the local shops and they are selling brand new ones for 250€, so isn't 200€ for a used card a bit much..?

Go for it...

What model is it BTW? Price depends on that, it makes the difference whether it is EVGA FTW, ASUS DCII, Gigabyte WFIII, MSI PE etc or some reference design card with ref. cooler.

Just to give you an idea, a friend of mine has a ref. design Palit GTX670, and @bone stock settings (boosts to 1084MHz) temps get into high 70s while gaming (fan isnt at full speed though), not much OCing headroom left there, where as those cards I mentioned above usually get into 1250-1350MHz territory.

Okay, he's asking 180€ for the GTX670, and it's a Gigabyte Windforce with 2 fans, which looks like this. is 180 euro acceptable for that card (been in use for roughly 1 year)?
