Pros: Borrowed from a friend to benchmark.

Has an aftermarket Zalman 2 fan cooler. AND ITS LOUD.
only has a 3 pin fan connector hooked up to my mobo.

Compared this to my GTX 570 Superclocked.

Cons: I saw the core voltage at 1.100mv when i brought up msi afterburner. that is way too high. maybe thats why the 480s were known for running too hot.. Bring the voltage down to 1025 and its stable. set that as profile 1 in afterburner.
profile 2=same as 448 classified ultra. v1063, 810-1620-1950. good settings for a mild overclock.
profile3=v1075-850-1700-2000. did get artifacts in unigine.
thats about as high as it will go.

Other Thoughts: 384 bit with 1.5gb of memory and 480 cores. Its like a 580 card with a 570 chip. the best overclock i can get is about 850 on the core. it gets artifacts real easy.

i dont like this card, and i feel sorry for those who paid over $500 for it a few years ago. my 570 superclocked is way better and i bought it used for $160.

3 out of 5 eggsIt might now be an old predecessor...BUT?

Pros: Even though it has been more than over a year and here I am reviewing it.
It was an exciting moment when I bought it before my updated version of my rig. Until I realized it was probably just my motherboard and my CPU that's under-powering this GPU, but it's not. it's the the graphic card itself. It runs well in most my applications and games but for games and movies, I have few cons about...

Cons: Even though I thought I had a buck on the bill, but the problems I'm having with shadows flickering and jagged lines are the damages of my costs. Yes, it had happened since I bought and never bothered RMA because I knew if I had my PC upgraded I wouldn't have that problem.
Unfortunately it's not the case. Well, it is spend. So, I was the unlucky one to get a toasted one.
Don't get me wrong I love the services and the easy access with EVGA, just wasn't in my favors.

A.K.A still awaiting for the problem to be fixed if not I'll find a way to get another series maybe the 6.

Other Thoughts: It'll be nice to check for any faulty cards...

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card

Pros: I've had this card for two years of intense gaming and it runs almost everything on max settings. It is a good card and very reliable.

Cons: Runs a little hot.

Other Thoughts: After two years, I've decided to build a new PC and go with a 690.

5 out of 5 eggsSTILL, One of the Kings of the Hill!!

Pros: Have owned two of these for over a year now, and recently purchased a third for Tri-SLI, and all I can say is WOW!!! Even though the 580's run a bit cooler, and margenly faster, these cards are now a super bargin! They laugh at all games that I run on them, Even the almighty Metro 2033 maxed out at 1920X1200!! All other games are just a walk in the park for these cards. The DX11, Tessellation, and PhysX effects are really amazing in games! Really add's that extra effects to draw you deep into the game! What is really cool is when your playing a game with heavy use of PhysX, the FPS never drop because of it! Great Job Nvidia on this GPU!! NewEgg & EVGA are also great companies, I spend my money with both of them quite often, and Only with them!

Cons: When running 3 of these cards, they get a little warm, but I set profiles with Precision and they NEVER get above 75c!! I know these cards are mean to run hot, and can handle 105c, but I like to keem em cool and make them last. Heat is to be expected on high end performance video cards. When you want shear power, there is a price to pay...

Other Thoughts: I have really enjoyed these cards! The only real complaint I have is not of the card card itself. When I bought my first two cards, they were $540/EACH! Now they are $200 cheaper/each. Sadly, this is the same thing that happens every 6 months or so with Nvidia. Cant ever have the best of the best more then a few months before the next gen of cards that come out. All in all, these are amazing cards, and are still very much high end hardware. Yes, the 580's are out, but Im not about ready to sell my cards for very little money, and purchase the 580's for a very tiny increase in fps and some lower heat. The money I would have to spend to replace my Tri-SLI setup would NOT be worth it, even If I had the money! I will wait another 6-8 months before I upgrade again. Have to wait until software developers catch up with some killer DX11 games. Crysis 2 was such a letdown. Even one of these 480's tears through Crysis 2 and it should! Sadly, Crysis 2 was only a DX9 game. FAIL Crytek

5 out of 5 eggsYear old... Runs all... EASY OC

Pros: OCed to 807/1615/2152 on stock voltage
Fan at 70%: 39C at idle; maximum 80-75C under 100% load
Runs everything at Max settings: Crysis (30-40fps), Metro 2033 (30-40 fps), Witcher 2 (even w/ ubersampling: 30-40fps)

Cons: Fan at 100% is fairly loud; I never mind, but others may
POWER CONSUMPTION - really only a concern for people w/ grossly disproportionate powersupplies or who want to run these SLI

Other Thoughts: Some say this card gets hot, couple reasons could cause that: defective card, small cases, horrible circulation (I clean my case once a month)
As of right now, it's cheaper than the gtx 570 and has MORE memory - you want that - and it can be OCed to the same speeds on stock voltage w/ minimal increase in temps
I'm about to pick up my second (a year later) for SLI

4 out of 5 eggsNvidia EVGA 480 GTX OC

Pros: It can even handle all of the big Resolution of RIFT and I can control all the speed, core clock, and temperature for fans It's just as good as 570s and Better than 560s as an EVGA Rep told me, and from what i've seen so far this is a good card.

Cons: Only if u turm up the speed on the Core clock or try to OC it then u will have to turn up the fun which makes a bit of noise sometimes, but I don't need to OC it yet at least, and I don't think i'll ever have to.

Other Thoughts: It's a good card, and is worth ur money mine was very pricey, but hey, so are the 500 series cards in which only the 560s or 590s can really rise that much more above it.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome..just..awesome

Pros: Look at the title. This thing can handle anything I throw at it. It's a really good feeling when games automatically go to highest settings for you.

Cons: Huge, but what do you expect? All video cards worth having are.

Other Thoughts: I was thinking of going with the 580, but then saw that the specs were pretty much the same for the 480, the 580 is supposed to run quieter though. So far it hasn't gotten loud enough for it to distract me.
