I recently upgraded from a GTX 260-216sp and I was considering what to upgrade to as well. The 460, although much better than the 260 just didn't seem like enough of an upgrade. Since I was itching, I went for the 470. It's a great card, no doubt about it, but as people say it's either hot or noisy (depending on the fan profile you set up), there's no middle ground. Now the full 104 sounds like a better solution with approx. 470 performance but less heat, power and more OC headroom, but it's still in the future and I didn't want to wait that long.
