Summary: There is no way anyone should by a GTX 470 for more than $150. If you think you need to buy another on for sli for $300 just go buy a $300 video card (AMD 280x 3GB or Nvidia 760 GTX 4GB) which will a better investment.

Summary: You can get a GTX 470 at a very low price these days since Nvidia has released the GTX 600 series. For the price you are getting a very powerful graphics cards that even though it is not the latest, performs very well on most current games on high settings. Pros: Plays most current games like Far Cry 3 in high settings. Very affordable price. Cons: Runs hot and is power hungry.
Summary: Absolute monster performer, a little loud and bit hotter, but they have a higher max temp than most cards, and make sure you got the PSU to power it. I can actually play crysis 1 now at 1050p.
Summary: Comparable to the GTX 560, but has more upgrade options (Tri-SLI). Compared to the GTX 570, small performance loss but a great deal cheaper. EVGA offers many overclocking tools which are easy to use. Con: Dual Slot Profile without water-block. Other: My Mobo/RAM are not fast enough to keep up with this in SLI. Get a i7 with DDR3 RAM.
