Default Re: Step-Up from a 465 to a 470?

When I had my two HD5870's in CF with Vantage and them set at 1000/5000 the highest I got was 31,233 and with two MSI GTX470 in SLI set at default 602/3348 I got 31,331 and when I overclock them to 775/3600 at default voltage I get 37,132,thats almost a 6,000 point gain.And all my games run faster or close enough it does not manner.It is well worth it to step up .you want be disapointed.I wish I had just waited it out before I bought my two HD5870's.There nothing wrong with them ,they ran all my games great,I just like nvidia control pannel better.I guess I will sell them on ebay.The GTX465 is a good card but the GTX 470 is just so much better with it's 320bit buss compared to 256bit buss and 1280mb of memory compared to 1024mb and T.P.C 44 to 56 R.B.E.C 32 to 40 and a higher texture and pixel fill rate,If your enjoy it half as much as I have ,then you will be very happy.
