Ahh, 55 isn't far off mine, I posted it in another thread. it was around 51 average

Your min fps in Unigine seems low, might be a driver thing My lowest is 27.3 and your OC is higher than mine.

It seems to be a hiccup with the benchmark. Some people get it, others don't. I was reading somewhere that letting Heaven demo run for a bit before starting the benchmark will get rid of those low minimum frames.

I'm not positive that is his problem, but it's possible.

Good enough, I've never seen it in my experience (thankfully)

There is a hiccup in the very first few seconds so I went maybe 3seconds in and here is the benchmark much better lows.

Thanks for the results, guys. It seems like the 470 triple SLI is an even better option than 2 480s as long as scaling is working properly. I wonder if it'd be significantly hotter than 2 x 480s though. Now, I'm really going to have consider my options because my local Fry's has a bunch of 470s.

Btw, I just came across this interesting blog about triple SLI with the 480 GTX.

http://www.maingearforums.com/entry....GeForce-Part-2

The results are awesome. It even owns 2 x 5970s in many tests. I wish they would run some tests @1920x1200 because I'm never gonna use a 30" monitor on my desk. At the resolution they're running at, it seems like the 5970s' relatively small frame buffers would be a bigger issue than processing power. Another thing I"ve noticed is that Nvidia's scaling seems to work much better in tessellation is involved. I wonder if it's an architectural thing or software issue.

Tri SLI 470s are slightly faster but not even close to a margin that would make me change my setup.

Good luck with whatever you choose
