That is a very good question.

Really it comes down to how powerful your PSU is and how much heat your ventialtion can handle.

The 560ti is a pretty power hungry card, but the 480 is likely the most power hungry single GPU card ever released.

I personally trust anadtech & techpowerup as the most honest & non biased review sites :-
As you can see GTX 480 is a more powerful card but it draws about 100 watts more (317 vs. 421) during load and at least 23 degrees hotter (71c vs. 94c)

Passmark is generally not that reliable to test GPU power smile.gif . It is ok to take a general idea and sometimes it might be wrong.

On that site, PassMark, the GTX 560 Ti beat the GTX 480 in "Videocard Value (G3D Mark / $Price )". Of course the GTX 480 is better..

GTX 480 is definitely better than the 560ti. Heck, the 480 might actually be the best value/performance high end card right now. You can get it used pretty damn cheap. The same thing will happen to the current GTX 500s series. Only drawback is the notorious temps and power efficiency.

It may require a pretty high OC just to beat the 480 at "STOCK" settings. I guess people who tried reference 480s and 470s getting that high in temps will know that because the Autofan with those cards was not aggressive enough to keep up with the heat under load. A custom fan profile almost help to get rid of the heat issue. Also those tests are a little bit old now & it is before the cards ever released to public. And since then Nvidia updated the Autofan profile again to a more aggressive one before the cards reached the market.

480 walks on a 560 ti

the 480 is a previous gen card, and was the equivalent to the current gen gtx 580 a year ago in terms of price and performance.

where as the 560 ti is the price/performance equivalent of the previous gen gtx 460.

the 480s a great card, you need to buy them used second hand now since theyre no longer made, but if you can find one for a good price, take that over the 560 ti anyday

It does fine at stock, or with a modest OC, on the stock cooler in a case with decent ventilation.
