I almost regretted selling my 2 460s, but I made a nice profit on them and decided to grab 1 470 for now with plans of goin sli with a couple of those bad boys in the future.

With 1 Zotac GTX 470 I'm running in 1080 with DoF on with next to zero lag. So despite the benchmarks showing poor performance for Nvidia cards, my system is showing otherwise.

You think they have tweaked things for O Beta? Or is it just your new card you think?

What I can confirm so far is that they must have changed something, to the better. In 2nd closed beta my HD 5770 Vapor-X went up to slightly over 90°C (yea my current case / air flow sucks, going to upgrade next month). Now in open beta it's not even reaching the 70°C mark, with the exact same settings. Which relieves me a lot, because I'm going to replace every part of my computer except the GPU.

Maybe it will be even more optimized after official launch? Looks like there's hope.

Have you overclocked you GPU any and what kind of CPU do you have?

Nope not overclocked.

I have an i7-930 and 6gb of Adata 1600.

*btw I'm not saying it performs better than my 460s, 460sli > 470 by a lot in benchmarks.
