Nvidia has kept me gaming since i got my first pc with only 1 card giving me issues which was a 8800GTX that might be fixable. On the other side ATI have had 2 cards die on me.

On a side note the ATI fan boys should like this video YouTube - jinx265465654's Channel
and what were those two ati cards?

I guess I should mention that the 480 was the only card that could run Metro 2033 at full graphics acceleration.

A 4650 and a 3850 both gave me nothing but head aches. Ill give that I got the 3850 used so it could have had somthing to do with it. But I got it from a very good friend whos comp was running fine with it before I took it from him. but the 4550 was brand new at the time, It died on me 2 months later. I swaped it out for a pair of 7600gt's that I got for 25 each from a computer fair and they ran like a dream.

Here's some more information on the suggested PSU if you're going to be getting a 480.

PC Perspective - Looking at the higher end of the PSU wattage scale

900W would probably be the minimum for an SLI of two.

750W MINIMUM?

Absolutely ludicrous.

Inno3D have created a custom GTX470:

Custom designed GeForce GTX 470 card by Inno3D | SITEX 2009 | VR-Zone | Gadgets | PC Enthusiasts

Main differences are the PCB, which with no details, might be a bit thicker than the stock one, some power regulation circuitry changes and the cooler has had a revamp. As you can see it's got the heatpipes like the 480 has, and the actual heatsink is lightweight aluminium with fins, instead of just a solid slab of metal, so this card so be a bit cooler than a stock 470.

If Nvidia are letting partners modify and design their own actual cards, then hopefully a few other companies will try do the same.
