    I actually had an argument about this a few days ago with someone here that claimed that there was no way you could get a GTX460 to perform like a GTX560.

    I've been saying since the day the GTX560 came out that the GTX460 could just be overclocked to match it. Yes, the GTX560 can be overclocked further, that isn't the point, and the GTX560 definitely isn't worth the price over a GTX460. The extra shaders only amount to at most 10% performance gain, the magical performance gain that we are all seeing is from the stock clock increase, not anything magical.

    gts250 has higher clocks 738 vs 650 for the 8800gts(g92)512 about 14% faster;) since the horror of the 4850 nvidia maxed out the clocks unfortunately ati high end cards already maxed out:shadedshu

    I don't see what the clock has to do with anything I posted I was posting the physical differences in the cards an overclock isn't a physical difference. Not to mention a good 8800gts could get the same clocks as a good gts250 my old zotac card did for sure.

    Actually thinking about getting a 2gb 560 but after having this 470 GE I need something fancy looking. Thinking ek nickel backplate, custom copper vrm/ram sinks. Nickel paint job on the shroud. Gotta have that snazz.
