Honestly, i don't quite think a whole increase from 40-50 used (GTX 460 to 470) is worthy enough for a 5 percent increase.

I got this GPU and knew what Power it had. But with that crappy cooler and the powerdraw you can literaly cook on it. When you try to overclock it and set the fan to 100% you got an excellent heater. The card can`t even stay below 95 degrees. Also it sucks so much power that my 550W Powersupply wasn`t enough. You can game on it and it is great for playing nostalgic games, but there are better cards for that task. Seriously buy a newer or other card, keep the GTX 470 as a legend on the shelf and not in your PC.
