GTX 470 with i7-975 benchmarks at Ultra Quality settings

It is worth noting that the GTX 470 is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. With current 1280 MB RAM, the GTX 470 can have serious memory-related bottlenecks in more modern games. It is important to know that GTX 470 's max load temperature is very high and might require custom cooling solutions. This combination between GTX 470 and Intel Core i7-975 @ 3.33GHz has less than 15% bottleneck in many games and can cause minor FPS loss. This combination between GTX 470 and Intel Core i7-975 @ 3.33GHz has less than 8% bottleneck in many games and is perfect match to avoid FPS loss.
