Are you using stock GTX570 cooling? If so, I feel ya

At least it's a nice step up.

Really nice results. Basically the GTX 470 was able to reach GTX 480 performance at launch without paying the extra $150.

More often than not you can overclock a side-kick card (eg 5850, 6850, 6950, gtx470, gtx570, etc) to its super-hero pal's stock performance levels.

Of course, the higher-end cards have their applications (especially high-resolution multi-monitor setups), but there's generally more value to be had with the #2 card. It really just depends on how much you're willing to spend and your intended application of the card(s)

I'm currently on an ATI 5870 and decided to switch over to nvidia because of a display problem (AMDKMDAP). I've tried to get it fixed for months on over 20 sites and they couldn't figure the problem so I'll switch cards. Unfortunately, as a student I can't afford to easily switch one card out for another so I have to decide on a card.
I read the thread and it's great! But I'm wondering if it's worth the price difference? 570 ($355) vs 470 ($250) I have multiple people telling me different reasons that 470 will last another good 2 years playing on highest setting for any game or that it'll last only another year and 570 will be the card I would've wanted.

well done the gtx 570 is a great card, not cheap but still way to good for the money, you can achieve a gtx 580 performance overcloking it at least at 900/1800/2000 and have a lot of fun

The GTX470 will indeed be strong enough for the vast majority of games at mainstream resolutions (1920x1200 and below) for a great while. Mine handles almost everything I throw at it at near-max settings and great frame rates. If I were in the market for a performance card and targeting the aforementioned mainstream resolution range, I'd look at a GTX560 which falls into the $250 range. There is great value to be had with that card

The GTX570 is a fantastic performer, but unless you're hooked on Metro 2033 or similarly demanding games and playing at resolutions exceeding 1080p, your money would (generally) be better spent on a card like the GTX560 in my opinion.

Thanks for the response. Unfortunately, 560 is not available for me so it has come to 570 and 470. In our current set of games, is Metro 2033 the most demanding game? I don't think crysis 2 would demand as much but I would like to play that on the highest as well.
Quick question
570 > 470 > ATI 5870?
