GTX 470 SLI to Single Video Card ?? advice needed

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
SO i got these in june for like 244 and i must say i was really happy with them playing BFBC2, then the game got boring, competition stalled and found myself having so little time to play games.
I am playng now an MMO made 5 years ago (Uncharted Waters Online) and I feel i MUST sell my 470s before their value drops dramatically.

Video Cards are kinda Expensive hear and im sure i can get some 300-350ish for each of them, having 600$ to spend in new cards , im coming here to ask for opinions.
i would get 1 video card and a g27 wheel if you ask me right now.

im not going to be spending 400+ dollars on (GTX 580) a video card , i guess my options are either gtx 570 or 6970.

What are you former GTX 470 SLI owners switching to?

570 or 6970 are fine as a single card. They are good value / money.

Other options are the 6950, which performs pretty well on its own, or wait and see how the 560 is when it comes out.

Or ofcourse you can buy a second hand 480.

I'd consider the following: The HD6950's are actually unlocking to HD6970's, but it's unknown as how stable each one is. Check the "hardware news" section for more information.

Edit: Here's the Thread!

I'd honestly say keep it.. and wait till the 6xx comes out.
Those cards are beasts man.
Maybe use the money for other things other than gpu's...

Sorry OP, you will not be getting $300-$350 dollars for your cards. At least not from anyone that knows anything about computers.

I have 470s and wanted to go to a single card setup as well. There just isn't anyting out right now that would be much faster than what we have or anything that would just blow you away.

Where exactly is "here".

You will be lucky to get 200 for a GTX 470. They can be had for 220 new.

a GTX470SLI is much stronger then a single GTX570\\580.

you should be fine with them until next series of cards arrive.

if you want now a GTX570 will be a good exchange.
