It is a much better clocker in the absolute sense of the 570 can reach higher clocks than the 480 but you are forgetting that the 480 has the advantage of extra ROPs and extra RAM, it's like saying the GTX560 is a better overclocker than the GTX570 because it can reach 1000 on the core.
i agree, overclock 480 to 850mhz, is quite a good deal now, cause you can save some money on heating
sorry, aussies, the tip is not for you
oh, if your sarcasm senser fails, go reach the comparison link here
,570 beats 480 (20 wins out of 36) even when both are on stock since 570's stock speed is higher. and it overclocks better. dont even mention it comes with much less heat, much less noise, and much lower power draw.
now, i think we've got a winner, and a sucker.
and that explains why members are selling the suckers on fs section for less than 2/3 of their market price, doesn't it?

I bought an asus GTX 480 for Â£200. Thats Â£75 in my pocket as well a product from a premium brand.
So for Â£75 less, I get a card that performs very similar and maybe better in very high spec games. Downside is heat and noise but I can close my eyes on that for Â£75.
and cee, yeah, if Â£75 cheaper, 480 is a better choice, you can buy a good full block with the money.Edited by bluepiglet - 2/7/11 at 2:36pm
