To Step up or not to Step up?
 
So I have the EVGA 470. Should I step up to the 480 for another 147 bucks? Is it worth it or should I just OC what I got. Thanks guys!

Re: To Step up or not to Step up?
 
here are your pro's and con's of step up:

pros:
more video ram
wider memory interface (320 bit vs. 384 bit)
faster gpu/memory speeds without overclocking

cons:
cost (unless the money isn't a issue)

BTW, if you they you have stock and you do step up, try to go for the superclocked edition and not the vanilla 480. That way, you would definitely making it worth your time vs. overclocking. and hey, if you want, you can still O/C the 480 you get. And since it will be awhile before a refresh, this will be your only opportunity to do the 90 day step up to a better model.
