It's okay.

thomas b., Newegg

  • Summary: The card is pretty long so make sure you measure everything out before you buy. I had no problem fitting it & measured beforehand but it would really suck to buy this thing then not even be able to fit it in your case. Also make sure you have at least a 750W power supply, this thing is a power hog.
  • Pros: So far it looks pretty good. Huge increase in FPS on The Witcher 2 and Fallout New Vegas coming from my old GTS 450. I was somewhat skeptical about ZOTAC just because I've never bought anything from them but their packaging was really well done and the card appears to be well made. I usually buy ...
  • Cons: Needless to say it's HOT. Idles at around 73c for me, but I also have horrible airflow in my case. This thing is rated to run up to 105c, and after long hours of gaming I haven't seen it go above 92c. However, during Furmark I hit the 100c mark and decided enough was enough and shut it off. I fig...

Get a Life

  • Summary: Seriously the guy on here talking about getting THREE GTX 480s to replace his QUAD SLI 295s? Ludicrous, the amount of money being spent for such a stupid hobby. I'm a gamer too, and yeah I can only afford a "budget" custom rig, but even if I had extra money $2400+ on JUST the video cards for your...
  • Pros: I'm sure this card is great, but I didn't buy it.
  • Cons: Ridiculously expensive but some people get a hard one for that extra thousand points in 3dsysmark.

Very nice

  • Summary: With good air flow you can safely overclock these cards pretty nicely. I got mine to 800mhz core without a problem.
  • Pros: Fast! I have 2 in SLI and they bring games to their knees. I'm able to play with 16xQAA at 1920x1200 in many games and these cards don't break a sweat. Even Crysis is nothing to sweat anymore.
  • Cons: Runs hot though if you have air conditioning and good air flow it won't be a problem. Also you'll need at least a 700 watt power to run 1 card or over 1,000 watt PSU for SLI. Fan on this card is loud but I use headphones so they don't bother me.

One Hot Beast!

Jonathan S., Newegg
18 April 2010
  • Summary: I'm running dual monitor setup and the card throttles up because of this, causing it to be louder than a single monitor setup at idle. Keep that in mind.
  • Pros: Extreme Performance. Runs everything all the way up with no problems.
  • Cons: Hot and Loud.. especially if you run dual monitors. This is why I gave it 4 stars. If you can deal with heat and noise though, it's totally worth it!

  • Summary: Despite negative comments about being noisy and power thirsty I have not experienced this but that said I have not played any latest games on it yet. Build quality is excellent.

Card was a little too big for my case

K. Perdue, Amazon
9 June 2010
  • Summary: I new this card was big, but when I took it out of the box I was taken aback by its size. I had to remove the motherboard speaker and change the SATA cables (to low profile ones) to fit the card, and I am unable to fully close the side panel as the connectors and cooling pipes are just too big, so I...

Top mit wenigen Mängeln

N. Kästner, Amazon
11 August 2011
  • Summary: Es ist eine Leistungstarke Grafikkarte die Aktuelle Spiel gut und flüssig spielbar macht z.B. Battlefield 3 Grafik auf hoch und 1920 x 1080 und es läuft gut obwohl ich (nur) einen intel i3 Prozessor habe. Ich habe viel über die hohen Temperaturen gelesen und ich kann nur sagen es stimmt leider.

Gute Grafikkarte

Arkonis, Amazon
13 January 2011
  • Summary: Ich finde die GTX 480 ist eine gute Grafikkarte mit der man problemlos aktuelle Spiele in hoher Auflösung und Detailstufe spielen kann. Einziger Kritikpunkt ist stellenweise die Lautstärke, was aber nicht weiter stört.

Heiße Karte, hohe Leistung, nicht so laut wie oft behauptet

Zabrah, Amazon

  • Summary: Durch die ganzen Tests, die ich in diversen Portalen las, wusste ich bereits über die "Grillforce Thermi" bescheid. Da ich jedoch für künftige Spiele gerüstet sein will, hab ich mir nun die GTX 480 zugelegt. Vorher hatte ich die GTS 250.
