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?
You seem to be more worried about making personal attacks and defending your purchasing decision than you are about the truth. 20 wins out of 36 isn't enough to make any kind of statistical inference on if one is better than another and if anything shows that the two products are evenly matched.

dont mention something, means the fact following is obvious. rather than asking you to ignore it.

Such less heat in what sense? In the sense the GPU core is cooler? That's an academic "improvement" if there ever was one, both are withing manufacturer's operating ranges (and ultimately Nvidia is the one who has the final say on what is too hot).

As for heat generation, The 570 is a 219W TDP product, the 480 is a 250W TDP product, there is 31W between the two cards. That's half a incandescent light bulb, or a fluorescent light bulb worth of power. That 30W isn't going to make a tremendous difference in the heat of your room.

In the UK as per http://www.ukpower.co.uk/tools/runni...s_electricity/, a 30W on 24/7 for a year would cost about 25 Pounds more, when Idle the cost would be even less than that.

Didn't know this thread would becoming a popular flameing 570 vs 480 thread lol.

Interesting to read everything though

What's funny is when I see people posting garbage, like load temps under 80 degrees for stock cooled GTX 480s.

Here's my stock cooled GTX480 OC'd @ 850/1025 MHz w/ 1075mV hitting 83C in Warhead bench..

This OC'd card never went beyond 84C in any game with my fan profile hitting 80% max..

I bet on stock clocks temps would have been under 80C..

CHEERS..

Stock cooling just isn't impressive either way, its bad on the 4xx series cards and it's slightly less bad on the 5xx series cards.

Maybe I'm bias though, ever since I started to use water the idea of air cooling being "good" just doesn't compute for me.

When buying a high end card the cooling solution is the last thing I'd be worried about. Overclocking, durability, and price are what I look at.

Ambient temps, fan profiles & settings & in a case or caseless make a difference here. Nothing garbage about it, my hottest 480 on stock cooling right now at this moment at 99% load while folding is 67° after more than 24 hours running. None of my fermi cards has ever seen the kind of temps my 295s got.

Honestly, I would probably opt for the 480. The power delivery system on the 480 is much more robust than that of the 570, ergo all of the GTX570 deaths we have been seeing around here with overclocking.

Not to mention the power limiting chip on the 570... I don't know about you, but I want the most performance out of my card that it can offer. I don't want it to throttle back when I'm pushing it to the limit.

I would also take the extra VRAM if you have a high-res monitor... and since the MSI 480 is $50 less than any 570, that's a nice plus too.

eVGA defines in step-up that the 570 is faster. In reality they are pretty much the same.
