Nice review once again.

My personal opinion: If I had to choose between 5850's CF or 470's SLI, the 100$ difference would be worth it and i'dd just grab 2 5850's. If someone is folding/ using physX or CUDA, well obviously the 470's sli would cut it.There are (nearly) no real situation in games where the 470's are giving playable framerates while the 5850's don't.. my 2 cents.

Certainly not to me, but to each their own.

Excellent review! And very nice to see the SLI 470's. Of course it's nice to see the numbers of the biggest and best, but reality is that there will be far more people going this route.
gtx 470 : $380 at NCIX
5850: $330.
(well, those are XFX and EVGA.. that's what i'dd buy -.-)
