you decide... i would personally go with GTX 480 with my eyes closed. infact... i have SLI GTX 560 Ti and i WISH the GTX 480 price was as low as it is now.... or else i wouldnt have them ><</div>

That's right. It does run hotter, Even if you oc 560ti, stock GTX 480 still beats it.

210 U.S. dollars = 159.914712 Euros

I'm so jealous.. In our country it cost over 300€ mad.gif and that's for single GTX 480 mad.gif

If it was me I would wait a couple months on the purchase until prices and stock come into line. I mean why spend two hundred bucks now on last gen when you can have new current gen for one just one hundred more dollars ($3XX GTX670?)

There's some sweet deals as mentioned in the classisfied ~$315 for a 580 is pretty good imo, I wouldn't ever upgrade unless you're jumping two "tiers" so to say. 460 ---> 480 is good but the 560ti is a one tier upgrade. A used 580 is one of the best deals out now in terms of price performance.

It depends what kind of gaming you're going to do and at what resolutions. If you're playing at full HD but nothing hardcore, i think 460 would be enough....

a GTX 460 768mb to GTX 560 ti a side-grade?
I had a GTX 460 1GB and upgraded to a GTX 470 and it was a noticeable improvement for me.

right, when i had my GTX 460 1GB i went to a GTX 470 and noticed a big nice difference. then i went from a GTX 470 and went for a GTX 560 Ti factory OC and noticed even a better difference.... now... that the GTX 480 price is that low.. i wish i would be able to sell both of my GTX 560 Ti and get SLI GTX 480 instead smile.gif

Thanks to all the replies and advice. Budget was a big factor and I'm not disappointed at all with my new GTX 480! Core temps on my CPU aren't going above 33 C while gaming, and GPU is a steady 65-75 C.

Really do appreciate all the input even if my questions seemed a bit of a nuisance. Now to install the SSD this weekend.
