Still a Very Strong Video Card available at a good price
29 April 2013
Summary: I needed to upgrade my video card to run some of the more recent games that came out. In doing my research I noted that the GTX 480 consistently outperformed many newer cards on FPS ratings. The main drawback to this card is that its a single processor and runs very hot, but its unique cooling structure (looks like race car header pipes actually, lol) keeps the card venting going just fine. For longer gaming sessions, I keep the CPU case open just as a precaution.
The PNY Nvidia Geforce GTX 480 is an AWESOME CARD.

Summary: This card is simply great. I know you look online and are seeing the new 590's being listed, but this card the 480, in my experience with it will perform just as well as the newer Nvidia cards as the technology for the 580-590 Nvidia cards is not even being utilized much if it all at this time.
Great card, high performance, Still viable easily against even newer ones.

Summary: This card is still one of the most powerful single gpu solutions on the market. Yes it does run hot, but with the high flow bracket and backplate mine seldom goes over 80c even after hours of use. Also the price you can find one for here can't be beat especially considering how much the newer equivalent cards cost.
Summary: received the Video card about 3 days after he sent it out, item arrived safely and everything that was included with the card was intact. I have this card running on my main pci slot in my 3 way sli system and i must say its running great. I can definitely recommend this buyer and would do business with him again.
Summary: I just put this card in a new build based on the i7 930 processor and all I can say is WOW! This is a really great card that's running any game I own on MAX settings with no problems and 70-80+ frame rates. I highly recommend this card. It's pricey but it's worth it in the long run. I had no problems with install, had no problems (yet) with overheating, don't even have to worry about downloading Riva Tuner to OC b/c this card simply doesn't need it.
Pros: Easy To Install, Highly Compatible, High Quality, Powerful
Summary: At stock speeds this card is great. When you overclock this card its Fantastic. But before you do, use MSI afterburner (Google it) to control voltage, fan speeds and overclock of this card. Stock speeds without fan control will drive your temperatures up to 92C, if you overclock, I would strongly recommend afterburner to keep your card temperatures below 72C.
