What country do you live in? Are the prices you're quoting in US dollars or Euros (or is it varying depending on if you say Euros or $, meaning USD)? I'm not a good judge of other countries prices, so I can't really help if a particular price is a deal. What I can do is analyze the GPUs performance and compare the price/performance via the prices you're listing. According to Google €100 Euros is $131.63 USD. Unless it was substantially cheaper than a modern GPU of the same speed I wouldn't recommend the GTX480. It is notorious for high temperatures and power consumption. With the Kepler architecture Nvidia focused heavily on increasing power efficiency. The GTX480 is basically the same performance as the below mentioned GTX570, and both fall between the GTX650 Ti Boost and GTX660 in performance.

Compared to the $200 USD GTX650 Ti Boost you mentioned earlier, a GTX570 for $140 USD is an excellent deal since both are in the same performance category. At less then $10 more than the above GTX480 it's definitely worth the jump. The GTX570 has slightly better power and heat characteristics compared to the GTX480 according to AnandTech. Still, looking at a GTX650 Ti Boost TP review, the GTX570 still pulls probably double the power compared to the GTX 650 Ti Boost when gaming.

Keep in mind that's a GTX650 Ti non-Boost. At a USD price with all the other prices considered that's a horrible deal. Again unless it's super cheap I don't recommend getting the GTX650 Ti non-Boost. The Boost version and HD7850 are substantially faster.

The GTX650 Ti (non-Boost) and HD7790 are essentially in the same performance league.
