Yeah I was in the same boat kind of, were planning on getting a house early next year and I had to really convince my partner to let me get these, but I had sold £400 worth of stuff on ebay and then my 460's for £200 the other day, giving me £600 of savings towards them. Then the store I got them from had reduced the price of the cards for that day and I had a 'limited time' £40 discount promotion to use with them which meant I actually only needed to spend £200 to get them both and I knew even in January the deal probably wasn't going to be any better than this, so I convinced my girlfriend to let me commit early and now I can't wait.

Don't be disheartened 470's are amazing cards which'll do probably anythign you want them to do and with waterblocks you'll be pushing your cards probably further than my stock cooler cards, probably could even match my setup

Thanks this is the first time I've ever had a top end card, the closest I ever got was getting a second hand 4870x2 just as the 5000 series AMD's came out and a single 5870 beat my duel GPU card lol and I know I'll be happy with them for quite awhile.

Thanks again for the help and support to getting these cards, I'll have pictures and images and thought I'd write a review about these cards seems as none exist on OCN, I'm sure I won't have much bad to say about them though
