Re: Step-Up from a 465 to a 470?
I agree, use the evga step up if your savvy. you'll save about 20-40 dollars on the cost of a second 470 with sending in your 465. Now the only cost factor you might be concerned about is the shipping costs for getting the 465 to evga as I would assume the 470 you get back evga would pay the shipping. Meaning, the 20-30 saved may just break even if you are hasty and not wanting to wait thus shipping the expensive way to evga.
edit: scratch that. if it costs 30 alone for the step up, that's pretty much the difference between a 465 and 470. my local store in canada sells a vanilla 465 for 309 and a vanilla 470 for 349. So,there is basically your 30 dollars breaking even there. If you really want more speed, sell off the 465 for close to what you bought and buy yourself two 470's. or go with the second 465.
