Re: First benchmarks of GTX 470
Price/performace isn's always as bad as it looks with these launch cards - so long as they're damn fast.
I got both the 8800gtx and gtx280 at launch, and both lasted a good two years. Both cards were big upgrades (particularly the 8800gtx, that was massive!) That gtx480 card really needs to be quite a bit quicker than it's 5870 counterpart to justify anything near $600/€600. It's approaching madman money, frankly.
