how noisy is this card, thinking to buy for my upcoming gaming rig. Performance will be better than than 560ti and more like the 570 but I guess it runs way hotter. Still roughly 60 quid cheaper than a 570, only concern is noise and reliability as it does run hot?
#2
review here says it's relatively quiet. that could mean anything though. still looks a good card and temps are good for a 480.

voted hot.
#3
Great price. Need 750w+ psu.
#5
Good value card for that money

Here is Guru3D's power supply recommendation:

GeForce GTX 480

* On your average system the card requires you to have a 600 Watt power supply unit.

GeForce GTX 400 in SLI

* A second card requires you to add another 250 Watts. You need a 850+ Watt power supply unit if you use it in a high-end system (1 KiloWatt recommended if you plan on any overclocking).
#7
"* On your average system the card requires you to have a 600 Watt power supply unit. "

This one's overclocked as stock. Hexus recommend 750w+. Who do you want to believe? X) Either way, it's a lot of 'leccy.
#8
yup they're certainly power hungry. the guru 3d review shows total system load as 458w with an overclocked cpu included so a decent 600w psu should be plenty.
#9
i do know someone with a KFA² 560, that was so noisy he tried to RMA it, only to be told that's normal for them...
#10
Anyone seen anything decent for under £80 mark thats worth upgrading from a 9600GT.

I'm all lost looking at new nvidia cards :|

Try extending that price mark to £100 and you could get a gts 450 or perhaps gtx 470 756mb.

If you pay for a good one now you won't need to upgrade for a while.

Looks like an awesome card, but you'll need a small nuclear reactor to power it.

Try that it is DX10 but I went from a 9600GT to that and there is a huge difference

bear in mind the cooler is also 30cm long..so you may need to check your cases :)

too noisy, too hot, too power consuming, and not that fast,using old production technology

It's not noisy at all with this cooler, it's definitely not hot, the only faster single-gpu card than this is a GTX 580, it's using the same production process (40nm) as all the latest desktop graphics cards.

Do some reading before you comment.

KFA2 is loosely associated with what BFG was back in the days, they're owned by Galaxy and offer very decent RMA service in the UK.

It's sad that you have no idea what you're talking about, the card will work just fine on a decent brand PSU rated at 500-550W.

A decent brand PSU is definitely not CIT or Casecom from Ebuyer. The cost of a good PSU works out at £1/10W but it may be more.

You also should be looking at the max current on the 12V rails that the PSUs are rated for.

Hot and noisy? You bet, but there isn't anything that can touch it for the price. I could probably only think of 4 single gpu cards that are faster, and all of them are more expensive.

passmark aint great, it puts a 590 below a 470?!?!?! real world benchmarks are always the best.
#26
i went for a 570 over the 480 just because of the kilowatt hours i would be saving.

A mildlyoverclocked i7 with a stock GTX480 draw 480W from the socket in Furmark. Overclock the GTX480 and you might get it to draw some 50-80W more under full load in Furmark. The most demanding games will use some 60-80W less on average.

15W more in idle and up to 80W more at full load. Depends how much you game, I guess.

This card would be faster than a stock GTX 570, though.

my 570 is on water so all my clocks are way up. no chance of this keeping up.

you do realise you can put this on watercooling and overclock as well.

anything decent around £100 mark?

Heres a link to this GPU's review...

Wow just wow at the temps...Big slap on the watt side though XD
#36
Don't listen to 750w+ people LOL these people think higher/faster = BETTER
It's not only about wattage, a good quality PSU at 500w+ will run the card just fine even overclocked,
look for how much it pulls on a single rail amperage.
#37
Guys I bought this psu very cheap from ebay
****.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=130282418044&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT

I am not really good with computers but will this psu work with this graphic card?? and how many PCI E pins do I need for this graphic card but please let me know if this graphic card is good or not so I can buy another one

What about a Radeon HD5830 for £83.99 inc del. from SCAN. Its the best your going to get to be honest.

Best comment today. lol at 750W+

My DUAL GTX 470s and i7 [email protected] run on a Corsair HX750w PSU.
A Decent branded and quality 550-600W will run this card all day long and overclock it too!

If you can stretch to £115 - Radeon HD5850 from Over-clockers. Great non-reference cooler too.

as i said i'm on water so can turn the clock way up, and as a results go a lot faster than this 480.
