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. I like the speed and the softwear it comes with, though you will need to update it so you can use the voltage adjustment for overclocking. The only real con I have is that this thing gets hot! The stock blower gets loud over 70% speed and it still would hit close to 95 under full load.
Once the price drops to around 200 bucks this is a 5 star card
it's all gone to the dogs, Amazon

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. Not sure how much of a difference that makes between the cases. My temps are 10-20 degrees cooler than a lot of sites like Toms and BitTech have been getting as well.
