The GTX480 is the fastest card on your list. However, it's also the most power hungry and hottest of the three.

The two GTX560's you've linked are identical except for their coolers. One may have an overclock but I didn't go as far to check them.

Personally, if I were to buy a card today with a budget of $150-$200, I would save up a little extra and get a GTX570. They're at a very reasonable price nowadays and they still perform quite well.

However, if that's not an option, I would opt to get the GTX480 you've linked as it will perform just fine for today's games. But just keep in mind that it's two generations old.

oh ya what you mean by most power hungry on the Gtx480 you mean it takes a big power supply to handle it lol? & it seems pretty nice Gpu :))

& my Price Range Im looking at something between 200 or less or maybe More I also gotta get me a New Power supply if I purchase New Graphic card

But Trying to find out which of all graphic card that is good besides the Gtx 570 & up lol I know those cards will handle Big Games but aint got the $$$ right now for it...

I maybe Run Sli in future

The 480 blows the 560Ti :lol:. True its big, hot, and hungry but if you have good circulation (Meaning at least an exhaust fan) and a 600 watt PSU, it will run great. Undervolts too if I remember correctly. It will also BF3 at max with all of the goodies installed easily.

The 480 trades blows the 570 and is 80$ cheaper. Why wouldn't you get the 480? Power and heat are usually a nonissue unless you have a terrible PSU and/or a very small case with no fans.

I never recommend a SLI system if you have the money upfront. It is much better to spend the money to get a great single card than two good cards. Saves you a migrane several times over :).

If you were thinking of SLI'ing later in the future and have the mobo for it then I would get the 560Ti or the 570 even though it costs a lot more. SLI'ing the 480 is not recommended unless you are watercooling them or have some serious airflow.

(Edit) Sorry about the separate posts... Just thought about putting them into one.

Yes it will, will be similar to the GTX 660 performance when it comes out. If you want to max out future games, you will need to look a little higher on the totem pole, ie the GTX 670. I would go with a least a 600-650 watter, and I stick with Corsair PSU's.

As others have stated on this thread, the GTX480 is two generations old. Even if it performs very well, I don't feel comfortable getting something that's as old as it is...thus a GTX570 gets my vote.

For the price of those 560 Ti 448's, I'd rather get the GTX570.

The 7850 is a nice option as well as it overclocks nicely...and can even perform similar to a GTX580

The moderators must have gotten to my post because I was dictating to my friend while I was working on a clients computer. He decided to take some liberties. :/ Sorry about that...

Anyways I am still with the 480, who cares if its two generations old: it still performs like a 580 when overclocked which is 300$ more. It will also trade blows with the GTX 660 when it comes out. Its the smart budget choice. I'm confused on why you would throw away 80-100$ because you don't want something older in your system...

Can you list your system specs? Both cards are roughly 10 inches long. See if your case is wide enough to fit it.

If you wanted to play at the top settings you need a card with a lot of raw power. The GTX 480 was the top of the line card 2 generations back just like the GTX 580 and GTX 680.

But, if you are thinking about a GTX 570 it is a good card as well slightly above the GTX 480. Just depends on the price.

The final questions at what is your budget?

You don't. Its peoples different opinions. I say go for the 480 because it destroys the 560Ti and is very close to the 570 at stock. OC the thing and you have GTX 580 performance. It does this while being 80-100$ cheaper than the 570, cheaper than the 560Ti, and cheaper than what the 660 will be. It's a no brainer in my opinion. :)

All Corsair PSUs are great. I'll link some good ones for you when I get home in about an hour. Can you let me know what your budget is for the PSU with the 480 or if you want the 570 (which I don't recommend) your budget for that.
