So I just bought a GTX480 Lightning - Page 2

post #11 of 18
very nice dude,i just got my reference msi 480 and im loving it this thing is freaking beast and it performs EXTREMELY close to the gigabyte superclocked version,good choice u chose it instead of the stupid 570,they only get 1 fps extra and get beaten to a freakin pulp when the 480 is overclocked.

Good choice. Now get an aftermarket cooler like Zalman VF3000N and OC that binned beast to hell and back!

Isn't the twin frozr III cooler on the Lightning version very good?

Any problems with your 850? My tower pulls 850-875 from the wall with SLI 480's an a 125w processor. Cuttin it kinda close IMO.

Should be no problem. I ran my pc through my UPS alone and ran BFBC2. Got 360w from the wall. Then I ran furmark and I topped out at 400w from the wall... so I have plenty of power to spare for the 2nd card.

Awesome card! As long as you have all the correct pci-e connectors(you could even use a molex to 6 pin for the third one if you don't have 3 connectors) your psu should handle it just fine.
