    But my point still stands. If you take away the outlier that was 480 (580 was much better despite being a fully enabled chip) and compare 5870 vs. 470 and 6970 vs. 570, the difference wasn't as big compared to now. V64 could be that outlier if it was actually faster than Nvidia's best--as 480 was--but it's only as good as Nvidia's 3rd/4th best.

    I remember buying my GTX 470's hella cheap after 5XX launched. Though that was back when mGPU setups were actually worth it, unlike today

    Probably before they got in short supply, I remember the last few cards from each of those series selling for disgustingly large amounts of money.

    I bought them used :), I tend to never buy new. Its hard for me to justify it.

    A good plan, it got ridiculous there at the end.
