No experience with the 480, but I have an EVGA 570gtx sc and it rocks solid. Playing BF3 on ultra with no hiccups on 1920x1080 with no probs. Not sure what kind of frames I'm getting, never tested it as I'm not too concerned as long as the game runs smooth.

Yea, I've noticed on FPS, it's back and forth between different games... I'm more worried about the fact that the 480 can get really hot. I've got good airflow in my case, but I'm not sure if the 480 can push out more air to keep cool by raising fan speeds.

I can find a 480 for about 80-100 bucks cheaper than the 570 which is the reason for this thread.

Let me rephrase that one sentence in my last post...

I'm not sure if the 480's temp can be at a decent temp with higher fan speeds. All of my previous cards idle at like 30-33 and while playing games it'll be around 50-55 degrees at most.


I just wonder if the 480 is capable of hitting low temps like that with higher fan speeds.
