gtx460+cooling OR gtx470 ref.?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
A week ago i bought slightly used reference gtx460 1gb for quite cheap. I already oc'ed it to 820/4000mhz 0,975v on stock cooling, but i would like to buy aftermarket cooler and squeeze more power out of GPU. Although i came up with idea that maybe it will be better to sell gtx460, add money that i have for cooling and buy used reference gtx470? I am confused as gtx460 with good cooling may hit 900mhz core clock and perform faster than stock gtx470, but on the other hand gtx470 is also overclockable and has more powerful GPU.... What is your opinion on this?
