Default Re: Your opinion on the GTX 470 & 480

I am some what disappointed, performance to price wise. Yeah the GTX470 wins most of time against a HD5850 by a little bit but the asking price premium of 100 or ($150) is simply not worth it. For that amount you can get a HD5870 which smokes it. Although not a Geforce FailX card it does seem pretty bad, the low efficentcy, price and heat is a put off.
