Just received a email with a tracking number for a GTX 470. EVGA has started shipping so be on the lookout, signature required. Yeah

Post some pics and stuff when you get it in :D

Congratulations :thumbsup:

Are you going with stock or after market cooling?

That is awesome news. I really hope there is enough to go around. I'm sure they are going to sell very well in the first few weeks. :)

Newegg sent me notification but when I checked the EVGA 470 was already out.

Post your impressions when you get it. I can't wait to see what the heart of the beast may hold. Even the little brother is quite spicy. :)

I will definately let you know my impressions of the GTX 470 once I have it installed.

First a rundown of my system, it`s a pre-built Dell XPS 730 gaming system that is roughly 2 years old. It has a 790i Ultra motherboard, E8400 processor, 8 GB Mushkin DDR3, 2 x 74 GB WD Raptors in RAID 0, 500 GB WD Black, 1 TB WD Black, 1000 watt power supply.

Video cards that I have had in the system in various combinations, 3 x 9800 GT`s, GTX 285, GTS 250, Radeon X850 XT PE, Radeon HD 3870, Radeon HD 3870x2, Radeon HD 4890 Vapor-X.

For the most part I `m not an overclocker, although I have dabbled with it some, I normally run everything at stock speeds. Stability is more important to me than high benchmark numbers because I also use this computer for multimedia, record TV shows, edit photo`s, and maintain a music library of over 300 GB.

I recently upgraded my monitor to a Dell U2410 ultra sharp for some 1920 x 1200 goodness in anticipation of getting the GTX 470.

Awesome. I am looking forward to people posting reviews on here. :thumbsup:

If any of you users get a 470 sli setup post in my GTX 470 sli thread about your experience, thanks!

If any of you users get a 470 sli setup post in my GTX 470 sli thread about your experience, thanks!

:lol: Why not just post it here? :eek2:

04-08-10, 01:28 PM
Hmmm I wanted to keep sli out of this thread but I guess we can just go ahead and place 470 sli experience here also. I am not hard to please! :D

04-08-10, 01:36 PM
Well, this thread will serve good as an initial impressions repository, but I'm sure it'll make sense to put single card and SLI benchmark and game performance numbers in their own threads so people don't have to muddle through "I'm still waiting for Newegg to ship!!!111" posts to find the info they're looking for.

04-08-10, 05:28 PM
Newegg is receiving tiny quantities every now and then and they are selling like hotcakes , hard to get one :p As soon as few are up they go out of stock the next minute lol.

04-08-10, 05:57 PM
Yep Newegg are getting them in and going straight out, so use the auto notification tool and have the website on favorite and keep checking. Saw some Evga 480's and 470's for sale and after 10 minutes gone. :headexplode:

04-08-10, 06:14 PM
Neweggs auto notification sucks....use this and have the tab with the cards you want open, I had my page loading every 5 sec from 5am this morning.


04-08-10, 06:38 PM
lee63, just saw your sig info did you use overnight shipping on your GTX 480 cards?

04-08-10, 11:52 PM
Results have started to pop up on EVGA's forums from a few people who have received their cards.


04-11-10, 03:05 AM
Yes but haveing to run your fan at nearly 100% to keep it under 90c ,just sounds loud to me.I guess if the noise don't bother you then they are good cards .That would just get on my nerves,that one reason I got rid of my three GTX 280 and I just had to keep the fans at 75% to keep the cards around 70% but I did have 4 120mm 110cmf blowing on them,but I could still hear the GTX 280 fans over all the case fans I had in my HAF 932.

I wonder how many GTX 480's and 470's newegg get with each shipment.

I wonder how many GTX 480's and 470's newegg get with each shipment.

Not enough by the looks of it.

I think UPS is taking my 470 on a scenic tour of Cali, still shows to be in LA by the tracking page, but says on shedule for delivery on the 12th. I hope it`s in OKC and UPS just hasn`t updated the tracking info. I`m really looking foreward to playing with it although it may get delayed somewhat since I also just bought a QX9770 on ebay.
