I read this thread a few days back. It lead me to buy a PNY GTX 465 from Newegg. They are selling a bunch of these cards as recertified. I just got my today and it has all 10 memory chips and I easliy flashed it to a 470 using the standard PNY 470 BIOS. I know, a little off topic, but since this thread is about getting 470 performance at a 465 price, I thought it was work sharing. BTW, I paid $180 for the card with free shipping.
