My System Specs


OC the CPU....sell the single 470 and get 2x 580's (SLi) ;)

Seriously...SLi 470's will provide far better performance than a single 580......BUT (in the future) SLi 580's will kick some serious _ss !! Given the lower temps, lower power consumption, higher performance...the 580's are worth the upgrade.....

NV has a real winner here......yes you can wait n see what ATI has to counter, but the realtiy is, the ATI Card, if it is a better card than the 580 (temps, Power, Xfire Scalability, performance, noise) than it will likely be priced higher and likely a dual GPU Card (good luck with the Drivers).

Firestrike Extreme: 21.452
MARK 11: 32.530

Introducing me n my OCD to Watercooling, is like taking an Alcoholic to an "all you can drink" Beach Bar in Mexico
