EVGA GeForce GTX 480 (Fermi) DirectX 11 015-P3-1480-KR 1536MB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • 1536MB 384-Bit GDDR5
  • Core Clock 700 MHz
  • 2 x DVI 1 x mini HDMI
  • 480 CUDA Cores
  • PCI Express 2.0 x16

Pros:

Was originally going to go with either 680's in SLI or a 690..but the prices for them are insane...I saw these cards for under $200 a piece, which is awesome since they were like over $500 a piece new when they came out.. Replaced my Sapphire 5850's with two 480's...wow...what a difference!!...WEI went from a 7.6 to a 7.9, all games running on max graphics with 60+ frames...

Cons:

Yes they run hot, and yes they are power hungry...You can feel the super hot air blowing out of the cards. I am running these on a Crosshair V...plenty of space between pcie slots, and I also purchased the EVGA Backplates which help disspate heat. I am powering these with a Thermaltake TP XT 850, seems to be running fine.

Other Thoughts:

Buy these before they sell out...Sure, the 670 and 660ti will probably beat these out...but for the price of these, you cant beat it!!....Even though they are two generations behind, the 480's were flagship cards..
