ps no i didnt oc anything i was thinking of under clocking it to see if gpu temps drops
Well 95-100C should be good for that card, of course just set the fan manually to say 75% and the temps should be much better than that. It might be too loud for you though.
The GTX 480 is not a quiet or a cool card. But it has great performance

GTX560 = GF110 technology, and runs cooler and more efficient than the GF100 tech of the GTX480
Btw, anyone who buys a GTX480 now for $300 got ripped off because GTX570s perform exactly the same, also costs around $300, and runs cooler/consumes less electricity.
I disagree. The GTX 480 most likely overclocks better and it also has more RAM
