You say buy a 470, but look at the negative press that they got compared to all the gushing of the 460. I'd buy a 470 ten times out of ten over the 460, but to the average person roaming forums and reading reviews, the 460 is "the real deal", etc. I mean, you have reviewers calling them "enthusiast" cards, etc. , which they aren't, and between that and the price they look like the best thing since sliced bread.
there are still benchmark numbers out there, and are not hard to find. you can see exactly how this card stacks up....
