My friend, I have a bad news fro you if you refer to Alphacool NexXxoS Monsta 480 Radiator, since it is a 86mm thick, it wont fit in push pull, unless some heavy modding done to the structure of the case ,AKA back wall needs to be cut and re-welded)

"Front space: ~55 mm, maybe little more (front fans are outside and not count)
4x120 mm (480) or 3x140 (420) 60 mm thick in push-pull at the top (first 5.25 bay will be mostly closed by radiator, fits 47 mm rad in push-pull and leaves ~10 mm space or more)
4x120 mm (480) or 3x140 (420) 60 mm thick in push-pull (maybe) at the bottom (with only one PSU)
2x120 mm (240) or 2x140 (280) 60 mm thick in push or pull at the bottom behind the 480\420 (depends on PSU lengh)" from FAQ
can you recommend me a 480 rad im thinking of http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=31219 with push at bottom with corsair sp120mm high performance edition

Well as I said on the last page, I have not met CG in my research, it is a new kid on the block only released in 2011, whereas all other quys has been from 2009(so they went through one hell of waves of reviews and tests)
Personally, I had HW labs SR-1 originality planes for this case, but later changed to Alphacool UT 60 or XSPC RX 480 series, but that is based on quite build

As per performace, what is your budget? GTX 480 is a GOOD rad, just cost over performance doesn't translate same as XSPC
On this note Alphacool is greta producs and you can look at Alphacool NexXxoS UT60 Full Copper 480mm (which is 60mm), but it is also low FPI, that means need fans with statics presure, where as GTX is 20 FPI which makes it more performance but nosier with proper fans.

You need to decide what you would like to do performance or stealth.
If performance get GTX 480
if quite XSPC, Alphacool, Coolgate (at this level of low fan RPM you wont c much of difference)

while writing this post, bunch of people also suggested UT60,so i guess it is a choice)

I might just go for black ice gtx 480 for performance. Can I fit a alpha cool monstra with push at the top?

I was interested in Coolgate cuz it got a award the beat the xspc
I want a rad that will give me the best performance in cooling

"[240\280\480\420 "Monsta" 80 mm thick rads]: probably possible to fit with push or pull at the top, same config at the bottom + monsta 240\280 behind with push or pull. At the front will fit with push-pull but might be problem due to "maybe not removable" HDD cages bracket (at the first bottom front hdd cage) and with bottom rads due to 6 ports and stop plugs (fittings) at the bottom side (it might prevent mounting). Don't try it before somebody will test or measure." from FAQ

I would go for the XSPC RX480, Great performance and flowrate, The G-changer doesn't score as high in reviews except for it's flow rate which is only a little higher than the RX rads.

You'll be able to fit the Alphacool NexXxoS Monsta radiators in a push or pull configuration if the motherboard doesn't have large heatsinks over the VRMs or large heatsinks on your RAM. We were able to fit 60mm thick radiators in a push configuration on a motherboard that had large heatsinks and we were using Corsair Dominator Platinum. There were no issues with that setup. If you want to do a push & pull setup, you'll need a thinner radiator such as EK, Koolance, etc.
