GTX570 is a great card also no doubt about that..

But also if you check those YouTube GTX480 vs 570 battles you would see how much consistent FPS GTX480 has (no FPS drops) even at stock clocks (GTX570 is clocked a bit higher than GTX480)..

CHEERS..
you want numbers and i give you numbers:
http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/309?vs=306

570 beats 480, it wins 20 gaming/transcoding performance comparisons out of 36

and it totally destroys 480 once we start talking about power consumption, noise or heat. (8 wins out of 8)

keep it in your mind, its only at stock speed. given the fact the 570 is a much better overclocker, and this is the overclock.net , the conclusion is obvious.

Like I have said GTX480 and GTX570 does perform on pair on stock clocks (check my earlier posts)..

And on those Youtube comparisions GTX570 does have higher AVG FPS (but also within a margin of error)..

But if you have watched the videos you would notice how ocasionally FPS dips on GTX570 and GTX480 performs consistantly..

And in my first post I have said that if OP has cash then get GTX570..

But some people here (GTX570 users mostly) tried to say that GTX570 blows GTX480 out of the water which is not true..

CHEERS..

480 is better at higher resolutions, but 1080p and below the 570 is a better bet, plus it's cheaper.

I like my gtx 480s. Just make sure you have a good power supply and cooling system. I have mine running at 1.125 - 815 core and 2100 memory and never have an issue and my heat only goes to 80. Noise isnt an issue because I turn the sound higher...Get which ever you can get the best price on.
I like the gtx 480 because it has more memory and cores, If the price is only $50 dollars difference get the 570 who cares. Both are great and when you SLi them they are amazing. No compatibly issues ever...

of corse 570 is better but if the 480 cost less its a better buy

if the difference is more then 30-40$ more for the 570 go for the 480 if it less then 40$go for the 570

The 570 needs about 5-10% higher clock to match the 480 in performance, depending on the benchmark; therefore a 900 core performs about as well as a 820-860 core 480, both are fairly common.

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?

So for £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 £75.
and cee, yeah, if £75 cheaper, 480 is a better choice, you can buy a good full block with the money.

Well thats some bias "I love my video card" posting right there. Except you want to trade yours for a "lesser" 4xx video card, don't you? Finding it wasn't worth the money like so many of us have?

The market makes the pricing, not the product itself. Most people stay away from 4xx high end cards because of the heat.

But I can tell you for less than you paid for your card, mine runs within a few percent of yours, runs cooler, and runs dead silent. If yours overclocks better why did you stop at 900? Mine goes higher, and I can go higher with the comfort of knowing my mosfets won't incinerate.


Take this guy for proof of the fact that just because the majority of people feel a certain way doesn't mean they're right.


Just look at this video:

Notice around the 1:20 mark? Are you seeing what I'm seeing?


Grab a $300 GTX 480 new, or grab some gtx 470's off the MP for around $150 to $200 and laugh at the people paying stupid amounts of money for throttling cards that blow up and provide almost no real world performance difference.
