Default Re: Your opinion on the GTX 470 & 480

Not disappointed at all. The GTX 480 performs well in almost every benchmark I've seen. Don't really care about power consumption nor heat as I would be water cooling it. The only problem that now remains is price. Overclockers.co.uk has them in stock for 448(that's 500). Now considering you could buy two 5850s for the same amount of money I find that very hard to swallow.
Guru3D's review was one of the best as they had the most diverse set of games and were hawk-eyed enough to notice that the Dirt2 timedemo only ran in Dx9 mode on the GTX 480.
Think I'll stick with my 5850 and wait for the 32nm part!
