I was first looking at upgrading from my GTX 285 to the 470 for my birthday present
. I have read over all the reviews and seen the benches and see that clearly the 480 ownz in alot of things but the 470 seems good too but I can't decide if I would see a good enough boost going from my current 285 to the 470 or if it should go for the 480. I mean I could buy either one but I'd rather maybe save some money and get the 470 but just not sure if it performs better enough to bother.
Basically what I want is in Just Cause 2 to be able to turn on SSAO, Bokeh filter, and water geometry back on and maybe some AA/AF turned up and have it run smoothly. Right now I have it @ max details 1920x1200 except SSAO, Bokeh filter, and water geo off and 0AA and 4XAF and it runs very well now but would really like that stuff turned on. As it stands now if I enable that stuff it runs 20fps or a bit less. Most any game aside from that and Metro 2033 I can currently run @ max details with no probs. I imagine if I bought the 480 I could surely turn all that on and it run smooth but I think the 470 might be able to also but I'd be disappointed if I got it and couldn't.
