GTX 465 or GTX 470?

Post by smilingbounder » Mon Jun 28, 2010 8:03 pm

Would it be unwise to opt for the GTX 465, when for not much more I could get a 470? What is the % of performance increase with the 470?

I've looked at the SLI reviews for the 465 and it seems to perform really really well, and will probably get even better with optimized drivers.


What do you guys think? I could sell my 9800 GTX+ and cut some of the price off, and eventually buy another 465 for SLI.

Or go with the 470?

I say go with the 470. More memory and a few more cores. the 400 series period scales like crazy in SLI so either one is a darn good choice.

How new is your rig. What cpu do you have. I don't think it's a good idea unless you have a cpu that is fast as well.

You might also want to consider if your power supply can handle these cards.

Over all, I am more of a budget person, so I would go with the 465 and save up for a second card.

IMO the GTX 465 isn't worth buying; its a little too pricey for my liking so I'd go with a GTX 470.
There is no theory of evolution. Just a list of animals Chuck Norris allows to live.

If you haven't pulled the trigger yet, newegg has the 470 (msi N82E16814127501) for $299.99.
