Are you satisfied with the performance of your card? if you are sleepy like me and can't think of anything to say, just vote, thanks, that's all that matters.

New generation of Nvidia's cards bring what over a 480?

Slightly faster performance, bit quieter cooler load temps.


All of which I achieved by buying a £40 aftermarket cooler.

I now have 580 performance quieter operation and much cooler temps.

Upgrade?
Pah nevar.

Coming from an 570 owner, former 470/SLI 470 owner, "Upgrading from" and "480" shouldn't be in the same sentence for quite a while.

I will probably be upgrading to a gtx680 if performance is far superior to gtx480. If not, I will probably stay with the gtx480 or go SLI.

My 480 under water spanks any game out there besides crysis and metro. I think 480 owners who upgraded were kind of foolish unless they are benchers. Kepler 680 is where I'm going and with a nice waterblock to overclock the piss out of. I plan on staying up release night to get one as well.
