I don't get this backplate thing.
It's to change the plate on the card?

Hello Hawkin,

It's a separate ordered metal backplate add-on that is screwed onto the back motherboard side of the EVGA GTX 480 or 470 graphic card to help lower the running temperature of the card a few more degrees C.

There was also a replacement "high flow bracket" that was given to registered owners of these graphic cards earlier that also helped reduced the temperature a few more degrees C. This was the metal bracket where the monitor connections are at.

No, there's no backplate on the card originally. It's to redirect the heat more efficiently coming from the card. Drops the ambient temps of the card a couple degrees. Better design.

Ive been waiting for the perfect moment to upgrade my GPU's, problem is i really love my gtx280's i want the 480's so bad.
I guess either I wait till the price comes down or my cards die?
