Windows 7: Just got my GTX 480

Does it run alright on your 9650?

I have a 9550 and had a feeling they might hold them back a bit, but how does yours run?

Nahh... the Q9650's don't hold them back at all.. my Vantage GPU score was just the same as dude running the i7 but his CPU score was a little more..

Get one.

I just ordered my DangerDen GTX 480 Full Cover Waterblock, Copper Base with Nickel plated Top for the beautiful look.

Fermi at 51C load temps FTW under water

Hey what's the length of the card? Want to make sure one would fit in my case. The GTX 260 is 11.5 and that fits alright. I think I have another inch or two to play with till it will be in the hard drive bays.

some manufacturers have a custom pcb for the 480, at about the length of the GTS 250

I read over the reviews and the numbers just don't add up for me, not at the 1680X1050 resolution anyway, the bigger the screen the better the improvment though. AT 1680 I doubt the game play will be any better than my single GTX 280 which easily plays Crysis at 2XAA enthusiast settings and I mean perfectly.

Gaming might look a bit prettier with the extra AA but not 500 dollars worth. I could easily beat one out with another 200 dollar GTX280. The GTX295 was another huge waste of money for anyone who purchased one. Real world results are what matters, not Vantage scores which is a synthetic benchmark and is way over rated.

The cost just doesn't make up for the slight frame rate increase and better AA for me so I'll be skipping this generation of GPU's. The GPU temps have more to do with case flow than the card itself, IMO case flow is everything when it comes to keeping these cards cool. Most people don't realize that.

I'm sure the card will serve you well and I wouldn't mind having one to play with but in the real world of gaming there won't be much of a difference at the resolution I'm running although you should see a pretty good improvment with your bigger screen and more AA.

yea my 24" uses the power.. and I ran Crysis at enthusiasts and 16xAA and that was smooth and beautiful.. thats a feat.

and yea the 280 is a good card, but the DX11 on this card is that next level that will do the job. Wait til Crysis 2 comes out, you'll "NEED" a new card. haha i think. (but maybe not since it's really optimized) afterall it will be on consoles.
