Default Re: Your opinion on the GTX 470 & 480

IMO After reading all the reviews, if you're looking to save cash manually overclocking two 5850s is still a great option. Every time those cards approach 5870 clocks performance is remarkably similar.

I personally know a few fellows running 5850s @ 950-1k on the core with MSI's Afterburner.
Intel Core i7 920 @ 3.96GHz (1.36v)|Mushkin 998681 XP3-12800 (3x2GB)
ASUS TUF Sabertooth (X58)|ASUS GTX 580 DirectCU II (980|4604)|ASUS PA246Q
WD VelociRaptor 150GB HD (x2)|Pioneer DVR-2920Q|LG GH22LS30|Klipsch PM20 2.0
SilverStone OP1000-E|SilverStone TJ10-B|Thermalright U-120 Extreme|Win 7 HP x64
