Thread Starter 
Anyways i found a good deal on 2 x palit sonic 1gb gtx 460 (factory OC@800mhz)

for £200 ($320) so went along with that, after i sell my 470 ill gain atleast half the cost back

you guys think this was a wise move

to get a 2nd 470 i would need to get better psu which isnt cheap + the cost of another 470

2 x 460 (with OC) would net me roughly the performance of gtx 580 which i can run on my psu, plus i sell my current 470 so in the end id only be spending about £60

since i run 1680x1050 gtx460 SLI is more than enough for me, plus im getting a good price on them anyways

I would of grabbed the 570 and sold your 470. They OC very well. 900mhz is not uncommon.

Would have been a beast.

Coming from someone who owned a 470 and upgraded to a 480, just keep your 470 for now. If you can overclock it to 800/1600 you will be getting damn near 480 stock speeds. Save your money for a 580 when you will need one in November for BF3.
Check the how to link in my sig for proof and or overclocking advice.

The 480 has a few more pixel shaders and slightly higher memory bandwidth.
The 570 has a slightly higher core clock.

Performance wise, they are going to be about the same. Go with what you can get for cheaper IMO.

However, if I already had a 470, I wouldn't even consider bothering with such a small upgrade. It's a lot of money for a performance gain that is negligible when human perception is thrown in the mix.

Only when you disable Overvolt Protection and take Voltage above 1.1v. I run mine at 1.063v and 915 core and have never seen a black screen.

Any GPU in existence can be made toast with aggressive voltage and clock modifications

Back to the OP, the GTX 480 and GTX 570 are very, very similar. The GTX 480 that I owned was a hotter running card and performed within 1 FPS of the 570 in my applications, sometimes less and sometimes more.

For $75 dollars less, the GTX 480 would be my choice!
