  1. The GTX 480 is obsolete and the other two cards you mention are quite overpriced. Is there a reason you are limiting yourself to Nvidia cards?
  2. no not rly just the only ones I know that are good, I heard that Radeon 7970 is good but its quiet hight price, if its good for the money I might buy it tho.
  3. operating system-32 or 64bit. monitor and resolution. the rest of your hardware. games you play and whatever else you use your card for.
  4. Well if you would like a card that is actually a good deal for the money this is what I would recommend;

    Its performance is right in line with the old GTX 480 but it is a newer card with a significantly improved power/heat profile. It also overclocks quite well. Above that card the price/performance really goes down a large amount. For example the GTX 580 and the HD7950 have a similar performance and price. They are both 15-20% faster than the card linked above at 1080p but they cost about 60% more.
