My System Specs

Default

From what I have seen so far regarding SLI testing of 470's, you do NOT want to go that route.

If you really want a dual GPU system, stick with ATI for now.


Otherwise a single GTX 470 would an excellent upgrade. Though dropping $300-$350 on a Quad Core, to be brutally honest, for gaming and general use, isn't likely to net you an enormous performance improvement.

Check out our chart's for a comparison between the two: PCMark Vantage x64 CPU Benchmarks - HardwareCanucks Charts
