Also FSX is CPU bound so my i7-2600k will do about 80%. So a 560 Ti or 480 GTX will do fine.

Whats more future proof?

And what about that Zotac?

Should I save 12 bucks and go with the ASUS?

I wish there were simple solutions like the h50 and h100 etc for gFX cards. That would be *****in
already exists.

although not as good as real watercooling obviously.

I would get the Asus, 3 year transferable warranty is a big win. Plus its the cheapest.

What about this?

Its 12 dollars more. Overclocked and has a better cooler. Will probably be quieter and cooler then the reference asus model. I could just pop it in and be done for 3 years.

i thought about the 570 over the 480 but if you look at the specs on newegg and compare the two, the price doesn't justify the little more here but a little less there.

Check it up

Yes, but theoretically the 'superclocked' (or equivalent) cards are binned higher. Therefore, you should be OC a SC version more than a reference version.

amirite?? or no?

As a very happy 560 Ti owner, I've gotta say at that price the 480 is unquestionably the better buy.

Even if you're not planning on OCing, the 480 has 50% more VRAM, and if you're concerned about future proofing, that could make a big difference down the road.

The Zotac AMP looks particularly good considering how hot ref 480s tend to run.

The Asus will exhuast to the outside and keep temps in case cooler yet will generally run hotter. The Zotac will run cooler but make the case hotter.

I dont nor do I plan on over clocking my i7-2600k

do not get the ref. 480 they are known to be very hot and loud.
get the zotac amp edition
also, overclock that 2600K for 4.5 GHz and FSX will be very smooth for you with all of the autogen stuffs maxed.
another thing, turn off Hyperthreading on that 2600K if you haven't already. it decrease performance in fsx significantly.
