Is Geforce GTX 470 very better of Geforce GTX 460? I'm undecided.

Just be sure to get the 1GB non SE one. Pics of the 560 are out so that may
be out soon.

In your opinion if I like to get good performance, do I have to
configure it or for default it works fine? For exemple, with Geforce
GTX 470 do I have enable "Antialias"? Some info please.


Here's another vote for the 460. I've been infinitely happy with my
Sparkle GTX 460 1GB. The 470 is actually an older chip; not nearly as
efficient and many times slower vs the factory overclocked 460's in
certain resolutions. Plus the 460 has much better power usage. My
entire system's idle use dropped 25-30W going from a 9800GTX+ to GTX 460!

What do you call "good performance" ?
high frame rate or detail picture ? They are a bit of opposite.


You are right. I will use that videocard for video editing. Do you
think that it in default works fine?
thanks
