Summary: Great card. Really needs to be properly water cooled to enjoy to its fullest potential. Great for FPS gaming. With the stock heat sink the gpu gets very hot even when the fan is placed on full speed.
Summary: I've got 2 of these both overclocked to GTX480 speeds using MSI afterburner. They're amazingly fast but also extremely loud and really hot. At full fan speed, it sounds like a jumbo jet in a hurricane and I've seen the temps of the bottom card that doesn't get the direct air flow that the top card...
Summary: I bought this a while back for 299.00 with free shipping and game. I see its down a tad to about 250+ and am thinking about getting another when it hits 200 or so for sli.

Summary: I ordered this from NewEgg, but I figured I'd throw my review here as well. Any way, it doesn't run much hotter than my 8800 GTS 640s did inside my CM Stacker 850, however I am running the 470 in a HAF X with a fan blowing directly to the card.
Summary: First things first, I got two of these to run in sli. I also have two xfx 5870's so I can do a direct comparison. In sli the 470's are faster than the 5870's in crossfire. I run two monitors in 1920x1080. In all bench marks the 470 sli system was faster.
