Actually, as long as you keep temps within safe ranges, it won't effect the lifespan of the card at all. If your dumb and try to OC your card and it loads at 105c then of course its gonna kill the card..
Exactly. If you keep it within reasonable ranges it will be obsolete long before it finally dies. Graphics cards especially are able to handle a lot more than stock settings well.

Also, there i fixed my grammer a little. I'm sorry but I'm just too lazy. Also, depending on the graphics card overclocking it can decrease it's lifespan for cards like the 470 and 480 were built to handle higher temps. Perhaps it won't decrease the life because either way you computer over time can lose its capabilities. This is at least what i have heard please correct me where I am wrong.


Finally, how come their is no solid proof like pictures of the 560 because nvidia released information about the 580 about a week before its release. Will i be gambling if I wait for the 560 or will it be an assured release with a good performance difference from the 6870 and will it come out for sure?
Yes nVidia confirmed the 560 a long time ago. It is definitely coming we just don't know an exact date. It is probably going to be more aimed at competing with the 6850 rather than the 6870. Though that is more of my own speculation.

The 470 and 480 were built to handle higher temps yes, but they also put off alot more heat at stock than the AMD HD5xxx series. It won't lower your lifespan if you keeps the temp under the recommended upper bound, and if you keep the voltage within limit. You see cards dying when people push the voltages.

As for the 560, check the news section, it's been confirmed and some specs have been leaked. It's suppose to be 10% faster than the 460, but the price point is still undecided.

I still recommend the 6870.

All speculation.

And the price point of the 560 is probably going to put it above that of the 6870.

As for the bolded, from everything I've read in this thread you already are. People have provided you evidence as to why you should get the 6870 and all you go on is about how the PCB of the Hawk is different and better.

Oh I always do that, it's just a way to question you making me sure that it's really the better buy and in fact according to guru3d and kitguru they are VERY close calls.
I try not to be a biest fan boy :>

Guess not, if I'm the only one to notice it.. guess I'm not as much of a "nerd" as some here; or I might be a little more mature, and those types of "things" don't exactly get my juices flowing, like it does for you (and apparently others too).

easy weasy. 6870 will perform better hands down. with that said 6870's are only decent in single card performance but at crossfire they're monsters
