So, one thing I'd be curious to know after you actually get some time to use the card is how it "feels" compared to the 5870. In other words things that cannot be revealed by FPS alone, like how fluid they feel, if either has any graphics anomalies, if one looks better (IQ), etc. I know not very scientific, so I guess all I'm asking is if something along those line catches your eye, post it. Thanks again.
one thing good about the 480 is i does get hot but it vents alot of it out of the rear. Its pretty much the same from the 5870 to 480 when it comes to component temps. I think its more the card blocking air from getting out then the card putting more hot air in. But more tests will be done. It might have made my CPU go up 1 degree Celsius. Again I do need to confirm

Great, a 480 is worth more than a 470, OC those 480s as they have a much better cooler than the 470
lol no...I just dont drink, smoke and eat out it makes a world of difference /quote]
that's how i got my v8 put in my car. which in hindsight, has not been worth it. I had a perfectly good slant six to put in which i had gotten for the low low cost of my own sweat, but for some reason, i decided to get a v8, a p.o.s, but a v8. but engine swaps always cost more than you plan...
