Depends on the application. The 500 series will be much more efficient on Dx11, but the 470 should pretty much tie up Dx9 and Dx10 performance.

Wouldn't invest in the GTX 470 because of the GF100 heating issues.

For price and performance go with the 560's

It's not what you do, it's how well you do it.
