You've got some golden cards, and your water-cooling setup no doubt increases their ceiling. I used my maximum GTX470's clock speeds for the clock-for-clock comparison. Core clocks over 800Mhz are solid for the GTX465/470 on air.

The TwinFrozr II heatsink is fantastic, with temperatures and noise levels vastly beyond what the reference design is capable of, but it still has its limitations

This writeup is just what I'm looking for, and the exact name brand no less!

I'm upgrading from an EVGA 9800GT HDMI B-stock, which is just a temp. card until I get a much better one.

I was very impartial to both the 570 and the 470s, as well as the 460s. What I'm most concerned about is Dx11 support, power consump., temp., and game performance. As I see a lot more controversy about the overall performance difference b/w the 470 and 570 it is making me even more undecided as to what I want to upgrade to.

I was set on the 570 since it is the newest, doesn't use too much power, and temp. are a much lower avg. than the 4xx series. But at the price of a whopping $350+. I'm considering the 460s or 470s simply because they give the same performance at just $100 less than the 570s. So it really has got me stuck on a fork in the road as both seem to be the road not taken as Robert Frost would say, or vice versa. So I would like to get some advice as to what would be the best bang for buck. I don't necessarily aim for OCing but more for the most gameplay benchmarking performace. But also with less concernable temps and power consump.

Of course this sounds like the 570 would be a match for me, but would it be worth the $100 extra to obtain this beast? As common sense would put it, both would be an obvious upgrade, but I'm one of those that try to get the best for the money and money well spent and not wasted. And as of now, I aim to overcome the beast that likes to call itself BC2 with Dx11 support with the best of performance.

It really just comes down to your desired performance level, the resolution you play at, and what you're willing to spend

really satisfied with my purchase so far, only game I have played that makes this card choke up a bit is metro 2033 @ 1680 x 1080 -- everything on very high and AAA. about 30-40fps average

Thinking about buying another GTX 570 for SLi next month sometime, but for the meantime do you think using my 8800GTX as a dedicated physx would make much of a difference in performance?

You'll see gains in Metro 2033 and Mafia II for sure (Small average FPS gains, but smoother gameplay). However, for applications outside of those two the GTX570 handles itself just fine at your resolution.

Speaking of resolution, I'd suggest that you move to a larger monitor with a higher resolution to take advantage of two GTX570s. It's not like you'll be playing Metro 2033 into perpetuity, the GTX570 will manhandle nearly every game at that resolution for quite some time

Don't hesitate to send me a PM anytime... I'm more than happy to share my thoughts I have to justify purchasing/reviewing all these cards by helping others with the knowledge I've gleaned from the experience

Thanks, I appreciate the high praise from a fellow Coloradan I will probably have a review site up in the next few months. For now, I'm getting a wordpress blog up and running

I'll always share my work here on OCN though!
