    Re: What gtx 480 should i get?

    To me it doesn't matter - they're almost always reference designs by nVidia anyway so i'd pick the cheapest. I'd have a POV card (8800) which was fine.

    Flip side is 2 x 460's - which is more powerful and a bit cheaper too.. I'd have to say that's probably the way i'd go if i needed the extra power right now but see what others have to say.
