    The EVGA one seems to be "overclocked" compared to the other 4 you listed. Shouldn't be that much of a difference between them though.

    Also found it 3 quid cheaper at Scan: [url]http://www.scan.co.uk/products/1280mb-evga-gtx-470-sc-40nm-3402mhz-gddr5-gpu-625mhz-shader-1250mhz-448-cores-dl-dvi-mhdmi[/url]

    I can vouch for Scan, they're really fast with deliveries and keep you updated on what's happening with you order through emails and texts, even giving you an hour-window (instead of the usual between 9-5) for delivery on the day.


    ( wow, I wish I got paid for this shit lol )

    not a great upgrade to be honest, if the talk on the internet is right then you should be able to overclock the 460 to near stock 470 power as the 460 runs cool.

    Agreed. The GTX470 is a badass card but the performance boost it'll give you over a GTX460 isn't worth 200 quid. A more proper upgrade would be a 5870 at least or a GTX480 better still.

    Your [URL="http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?model=880g%20extreme3"]ASRock 880G[/URL] Motherboard supports Crossfire, in heinsight maybe an ATI card would had been a better choice, as now you could had bought & installed a 2nd one. Is your current GPU not enough muscle ?


    Nice new CPU cooler you got there....psssst i thnk gamerchick has a raging upgrade addiction

    I have a cure for that.

    M3RV uses Utility bills.

    Its a sickness. We've all got it. If we didnt have it, we'd be console gamers.

    Hell Im on my 3rd processor and 3rd GPU in a year and a half. There is no cure.

    Your welcome. Seriously though, your rig is looking awsome, I can understand why you want a new GPU, to keep up with the rest of it
