Should I buy an Asus GTX470 Because it has that voltage thing?

Regarding the 470 in general ,I'm looking at the numbers and it seems to give the most frames per dollar, Its even under budget, Is it worth spending a bit more for something else?

Go GTX580 tri-SLi cooled by phase-change, or go home.

:bleh:


Seriously though if OC'ing is what you're after then that's not a bad card. upping the voltages can help keep a high OC stable. :)

Asus or EVGA are good brands you can go wrong. Buy whatever one is cheapest or on sale.

My GF said I can have a GTX580 but I wouldnt get anything else :(

I dont really like spending a lot of money on graphics cards, Or anything for that matter.

+ it would push my 750w PSU to its limit...

In my experience... if a woman is going to let you get the best thing out there do it. They only have that lapse in judgment once in a great while :D

And no I'd get the MSI 470 with the better cooler if I was going to get a 470 again.

It usually means she wants something insanely expensive for herself so I cant say **** about it ...
