Because all the other Stats are higher then that of the 470. The only difference is the DX11 from what I'm reading. Even the Memory interface is better. Whats your feeling on the 260 seeing how the bottom fell out on prices?
Sorry for coming across like an ass before.

When i said half the speed I meant in games the 275 is usually well behind the 470 in fps. The 470 is actually faster than the 285 by a decent amount.

As far as the 260, I would have to agree with Maverick, buying an older generation card at this point is pretty much a waste. Either the 470 now or the 460 in June will be your best bets.
