Re: Upgrade time. GTX285 to...?
Yes the GTX 470 don't have to overclock a whole bunch to beat the HD5870 and plus you have Phys-x .I can run my at default voltage at 775/3700 and the afterburner software is great. Even when I had my HD5870 running at 1000/5000 it was not that much faster.the GTX470 scales much better when overclocking it.
