Hi all. I will be building a new computer within the next weeks and want to know, what is the best nvidia geforce card I can get for around $220 (after mail in rebate)... Please note I will probably, not be overclocking this card and if I do, you guys better pick a card with low risk in terms of clockin it. (I have had bad luck in the past) My friend just got the gtx 560 ds ssc from frys, and it runs bf3 around 80 ish fps with medium to high settings. Can we beat this card with out spending more than 220 after rebate?
Thanks for your time,
JCloud

Get the 480, it's a faster 570.

Not really, an overclocked 480 will have more performance, that's IF you plan to overclock the card. But these are the 2 best cards for the budget you mentioned. Besides the ASUS looks to be a great buy at that price.

It's up to you, but the 480 is the stronger performer.

Can you list a few pros and cons from each model? Sorry for all the questions.

Can you explain why?
Quote:
The 480 will flatout destroy a 560, even overclocked.

The 480 is a downclocked 580 with a few shaders missing.

Im not finding any 480 sscs? and it says in your signature that your have them in sli. Were these video posted using sli 480s
edit: I went to the evga site and there are no 480s of any kind listed there? I know they exist, but does that mean they aren't sold anymore?

EVGA SSC.

It is also overclocked on a custom air cooler.

If you live near a microcenter, you can get it for $209 after rebate.

You think I can get 100 mhz faster without having to sweat? I hate overclocking so much..
Quote:
The only difference is the SSC comes with a 50mhz faster core clock... not worth finding.

You can get to 800mhz on stock cooling without touching voltages easily on any standard 480.

Make sure your PSU is up to the task, and you have sufficient airflow through your case.
