What do you guys think? Try to sell my two 470s and upgrade to 480s?

Maybe some 6950s, but they're about $250-$270 for the unlockable versions and I'd rather have a 480 for that price

I don't think you can really go wrong with 480s at that price, especially if your loop could accommodate the heat. However if I already had a gaming set-up that was more than competent, as your 470s are, I would wait to see wait 28nm brings before dropping alot of money into graphics. Although you would already be getting a 470 block if you stuck with what you have. I think for me personally it would come down to if I could make the whole transition from two 470s underwater (so factoring in the other block you were about to purchase) to two 480s underwater for less than $300.

You know what would make this decision really easy would be if 470 blocks would fit on a 480, do they? then you would only have to resell your 470s and not 470s and blocks, then buy new blocks.

This is all fine and well, but, I really persist that he waits until the new architecture arrives later this year. Afterall, have a gander:

How about a just cause 2 benchmark, we'll just have to agree on settings. Anybody have a suggestion? All high? Or just as it downloads?

I can only do 1080p, as this is my monitor. SO.... any 6950's up for a go at Just Cause 2 benchmark? Please just let me know the settings so I can duplicate it.


Or if there's another game benchmark somebody want's to throw out there that's free to download, I can be flexible and work with it.

Nah the 470 blocks won't fit on 480s, I guess really in the end I'll be spending $120 for a waterblock which will allow me over 900 core clocks even in the summer.

In which case I would be getting pretty close to 480 performance overclocked on air. The trade off is I'd get more performance with the 480s, but after I got around to water cooling them Kepler would be out anyways.

R U SRS?!?!? For the third time nobody has any CF 6950s here this thread was only designed to rile up the Nvidia section!

R u on crack? 570's and 6950's are obviosly high end. If the companies are using the high end numbering scheme on a product then in now way is it a mid end, period. Most people struggle to afford these cards and end up purchasing something like the gtx 460 or the 6850.

Anyways my vote would be the 6950 unlocked crossfire as it does better than the 570 sli anyways.. kind of a pointless thread really. I dont see how this is an apples to apples comparison if the 6950 is unlocked.

That should give us an idea of where 470s stand vs 570s since the ATI people aren't showing up.

Besides it's pretty clear you need something to do.

Yea 28nm FTW. I hope by the time Kepler comes out there might be a game that makes me wish I had more GPU power cause right now my 570 is kinda ROFLSTOMPING everything I have right now.
