Default Re: GTX 480: Worst GeForce card ever?

The only one you can even argue is the top end 5970 vs 580 match up, which of course this was made before the price dropped on 5970, which right now at newegg are $469, making them win that one too.

Thanks for playing though brah!
I have to disagree:

$209.99 shipped AMIR for a GTX470. This card is faster than a 6870, has more proprietary features by far.

The cheapest 6870?

$262 shipped

So how is costing 25% more, having less features, being slower making a 6870 the "winnar by a country mile" NP? Just looks like ATi can't compete to me, and I didn't even mention the much cheaper GTX460 FTW edition that reviewers said was all around better than the 6870:

So how do I back up what I said?

So AT, one of the top review sites says the NVIDIA cards are both faster, and that the 460 is cooler and quieter. NinjaPrime says the ATi cards "own price/performance by a country mile!".

Who to believe?
