GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 480 (Fermi) DirectX 11 GV-N480D5-15I-B 1536MB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Runs C++/CUDA
Fan @85% = 81c max load
Idle @68% = 54c
Stable clocks 830mhz/1660mhz
Runs whatever you want at 1080P/4XAA and above
HDMI 7.1 Channel Audio Output
Stable Drivers
PhysX (You don't have to worry about not being able to play a physx enabled game correctly)

Cons: It's Expensive and PC gaming is being overrun by console ports.

Other Thoughts: You can start to noticeably hear the fan over about 72%.

I had a GTX 260 SLI prior to this, Multi-Monitor/Multi-GPU has too many issues. If you already have a 5870, there is not a real reason to buy this -- unless you want to do something besides play games (ex. c++ cuda). Nvidia has really redefined the meaning of a compute GPU, this should get even better with a die shrink.

Total System Usage (Everything)
i7 920 - 4ghz
2x 7200 RPM Drives
1x SSD
1x GTX 480
2x 1920x1080 monitors
= 530 watts load, 340 idle

Nokia E71 110 MB internal dynamic memory Gray Unlocked GSM Bar Phone with Full QWERTY Keyboard 2.36

Pros: I am a bit of a Nokia/S60 fan, so I have used alot of their smart phones. I haved owned a N95/N78/N82. This is my first E-Series, and it will not be my last. This phone will last 2 days running Nokia Email / Mail for Exchange the entire time. This is pretty amazing for a smartphone. The metal case is really nice, keyboard is substantial and screen resolution works.

If you get, Download.
Handy Weather
Nokia Email
Mail for Exchange
JoikuSpot (Use the 3G connection to make the phone like a wifi AP for laptops etc)
Google Maps
Nokia Sport Tracker
Ovi Contacts
Core Player

.... Ovi sharing is really nice.

Cons: Low-Light Camera Quality. I also have a N78, which is also 3.2MP, but outperforms the picture quality - by far. Do not buy this phone specifically for the camera. Although it will decimate 2MP phones, like the iPhone or generic Motorola flips.

MSI GeForce GTX 260 DirectX 10 N260GTX-T2D896 OC 896MB 448-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: 2x GTX 260 in SLI + a good quad + more than 2GB Ram will run just about anything at 1080P, full settings. I really cannot be more satisfied with buying 2 of these at less than 400$.

Cons: None, seriously.

Other Thoughts: I would only get the 192 core if you already have another you want to SLI, otherwise stick with the GTX260 Core216, or better yet, go GTX 275/GTX 280.
