Yeah it happens all the time people try to convince themsevles not to change something or upgrade, but they just have to try so, they give in, Thats why I have both ATI Rig and Nvidia rig, But I always like nvidia better in my heart.

Someone offered me my purchase price, $380, for my HD5870 6 months after I bought it. How could anyone refuse that? So I sold it for what I paid for it and bought the GTX 480. It was the opportunity to upgrade for just the difference.

Everbody knows the GTX480 is faster in tesselation then a HD5870 or they should by now.I do agree it is hard to give up a Brand you like and I have always like nvidia better even tho the HD5870 is a damm good card.You can't go wrong which ever card you buy.But I think the GTX 470 at $289 is a great deal and they overclock great ,and when you overclock a GTX 470 you get a lot bigger gain then you do when overclocking a HD 5870.I can run my HD5870 at 1000/1250 and there is not much difference in the performance then running it at stock.
