And best of all, it's silky smooth! Unlike the 5970, which was microstuttering all over the place. Luckily Crysis was the only game I noticed that with the ATI card.
Love it!

My 470 is shaping up to be the best card I've owned yet. Very happy with it. Hoping there's a 512 core part (is that right?) to step up to in the next 3 months - I'll grab the 480 for sure.

Well i just tested Batman AA with both 197.75&257.15

With 197.75
Minimum:40 FPS
Maximum:107 FPS
Average:71 FPS

With 257.15
Minimum:31 FPS
Maximum:101 FPS
Average:66 FPS

now i'm off to test Arma 2

Update:
Arma 2 Run's like a slide show with 197.75,and with 257.75 it was stuttering&the benchmark crashed the game

this occurs in the Beta 70709 and the 1.05 Official Version on Steam

I've been using 197.45 for some time. ArmA 2 runs like a dream (same version and beta build), maxed out with normal AA, 6 km view distance. Haven't tried any of the newer sets, yet...
