The GTX480 is roughly 10% faster than a 5870, and a 5970 is roughly 30% faster than a GTX480

But the GTX480 uses more power than a 5970, and so runs very hot (90C+) and so the fan has to spin up creating alot of noise.

Most GTX 480 reviews compare the GTX480 to the Radeon 5870 and 5970. Don't be lazy, look it up.

OK this is for Big RES(GTX 480,HD5870 or HD5970)

my personal fav would be the HD5870!

this card can overpower all games even at 1980X1050
and this runs 20% cooler than GTX480

5970 is unneeded for the power it excerts

the power consumption is very less in 5870

5890
