  1. We can't give you anything without a set budget. With no cap, we can just recommend better and better video cards until you've got multiple $1000 690s. I can tell you that the 480's a bad idea, as it's hot, loud and power-hungry, and that you should probably go for something from the latest generations (7000 and 600) instead, but without a budget I can't be more specific than that.
  2. Sorry, I really just want best bang for my buck. The 480 at $209 seemed to be a steal. I really am not strapped for cash so I don't want to put down a budget.

    I wanted to try to stay with Nvidia and I was really looking around $200-$300. The games I play won't tax any of these GPUs but I want to future proof it a bit.
  3. Newegg has GTX570's for under $300

    From what I read the GTX 480 if comparable to the GTX 570. The 480 is back down to $239...very jumpy prices.

    Would I get much more going with a 570 vs a 480 for $50-$60 more?

    The 570 will be quieter, cooler and use less power, but performance wise they are pretty similar

  7. ...but the 7850's got performance comparable to the 570's, uses less power and costs much less. That's what I'm saying about the new generation.
