GeForce GTX480 1.5GB GDDR5 384bit VS MSI GTX 560 Ti

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 
Which one would be better in terms of performance? The price is the same now. I don't want to buy something that will become cheap very soon.

Thanks!

The 480 is going to have more brute force compared to a lower clocked 560ti but it will run at a higher temperature because of fermi being a space heater. The 560 has the potential to be faster if you can over clock it really high like some people can do.

What about EVGA GeForce GTX 480 1536MB? Some people say that it depends on the manufacturer... i don't necessarily want to have a vacum in my case biggrin.gif. 560TI can be overclocked but i'm afraid that not high (i have bad luck in terms of o/c)

GTX 480 or 560TI? Or maybe 5870 or somethin? other one?

Help me decide smile.gif

Thanks!

Derp. Forgot to read title. MSI makes a pretty solid 560ti. I would prefer that over fermi just because of the lower temp. And because the stock cooler on the 480 is going to be louder then an aftermarket 560 ti cooler.

and for current gpus use:

the gtx 480 runs laps around the 560ti in terms of performance, but the 560ti is cooler, quieter, and uses less power. hope this helped you out

Yeah and a OCed 480 will stomp even the highest OCed 560ti. If you were to slap on a after market cooler like the Zalman VF3000F and overclock the Core to 850-900 the GTX480 would clearly become the better choice.

If you can find a GTX480 like the TwinFrozer II then you will have no problems with heat.

The 480 will smack the gtx 560ti in any benchmark. It is more powerful without any exceptions. The gtx 480 is the same in performance as a gtx 570. 570>560ti. Sure you can oc the 560ti close to 480 speeds, but don't forget you can OC the 480 out of reach of a 560ti.

True, but the stock rear-exhaust cooler from EVGA for the 480 gets LOUD. I had a 470 that ran quite hot (easily 80-90C) in a well ventilated case (sig rig). After upgrading to the 560ti-448 core, performance improved, heat reduced, as well as noise by a substantial margin. The same games that caused the 470 to reach 90C only reaches 70C with the 560ti 448. MSI's Twin Frozr cooler is amazing thumb.gif

Personally I would go with a 560ti just because of the heat and noise reduction, but if you do get a 480 maybe consider getting a waterblock and liquid cooled GPU circuit going

Unless you are comparing an overclocked 560ti-448 to a stock 480 there is no way your performanced increased.

On topic: Yea it will probably run hot (i.e. 90C) but its not like that is going to hurt the card. I do agree with you about the noise of the fan, it can be loud at higher speeds. I would suggest some antec 620 cooling to go along with the 480 if the OP is looking into aftermarket cooling.

What about 480 in idle? Also so loud? I guess there's no point in buying 480 just to buy additional ~50$ cooling for it. You mean 448 core version of 560TI - is there different one? MSI GTX460 1GB 256bit has those 448 ones yeah? Both need 4-pin&6-pin power supply? And stock GPU of 480's is 700MHz and 560TI's ~850 i think
