+1 for that, weirdly enough, that was the best suggestions someone has tossed my way, based on benchmarks the 480 nips the heels of the 570.

so when OC'd is the 480 faster?

is the 480 old enough to be out-dated soon? or should i just say F* it, the stat's cant really lie.

EDIT: So the 480 is pretty much the same performance as the 570? buuuut.... costs less?

GTX 480 was the first "Fermi" board, so it uses lots of power and gets super hot and LOUD. GTX 570 is a newer "Fermi" board, so lower heat, power, noise, and is equal in performance to the GTX 480. Since the 480 is "older", it is cheaper to be had. But they are very similar, architecture-wise. The 480 also has more VRAM, so it can handle more textures in games.

Just look at my sig...GTX 480's all the way!!

That thing is loud and hot.. dont buy it unless you're gonna mount something like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835186048



Imo this custom 570gtx would be better, after rebate for 269$ and its rather quiet too
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814162075

I saw it oc to ~ 875mhz maybe up to 900mhz if you get a good ASIC gpu (quality chip)...


or this evga 570gtx @ 790mhz for 279$ after rebate

Another vote for the GTX480, it's pretty much the best price/performance card out... which is weird considering how it started.
