My same dilemma. I found a Superclocked 480 for $225 on Craigslist. So its either that or the B-stock evga 570 for $250

570 for sure lower heat, lower power draw, better performance. Especially if you're staying air cooled.

the 480 Might suck a little bit more power, but it really is like a better made card, and can handle a bit more abuse, and is a folding beasty, too.

I'd say grab the GTX 570. Less heat and power draw. And a non-ref one will leave with you better cooling and OC-ing.

Well, you can read here the upgrade I chose and it was based solely on the deals available. Be a savvy shopper

Rule is whichever one is cheaper buy it , I got my 480 for $50 cheaper and it equals the performance

480 lightning is a monster. I run that same card and it's worth every penny. On air it idles at 35c and loads at 72c, overclocks to 885c, and handles everything I've thrown at it. This card was 599.99 six months ago
