sli my 470 or go 6950? - Page 4

The performance b/w 470 SLI vs a single 6950 is big.
Exactly,

IMO The 470 would be the best option at a price/performance basis and should keep you happy till the next generation of cards come out at the end of 2011...

Go for SLi

Your single GTX 470 at 850Mhz is faster than a HD6950 (most likely as fast as a HD6970) so unless you have nothing better to do it won't be an upgrade at all.

Hmm...

But my 6950 CFX scores 4513 more GPU points in 3DMark Vantage than GTX 470 SLI @ 850MHz with both systems using Core i7 2600K at 5.3Ghz.

Well, I guess no one else pointed it out, but you should remember that the sli hack isn't guaranteed to work. It seems newegg has a restocking fee, so it might cost you if it doesn't work ..

Gigabyte EP45-UD3P has AFAIK a 100% success rate with it.
