Surely if they're dropping to this price so quickly the 480s are effectively annhialated at anything over around £230. Expect a few tempting deals in the next couple of weeks.

Yeah the GTX 480's have dropped down to just under £300 but a GTX 570 even if was over £300 would still be better value than the 480 becausce of better performance and lower temps/power use etc. At this £249.99 The GTX 570 is an absolute bargain, im tempted to buy one but will wait until new AMD cards drop next week. Haven't had an Nvidia card since the 8800GTX but the 570 looks very very good in reviews... must resist lol

I have no problem running every game max res, max detail @ silly framerates on my 5870 - what do I need an even more powerful GPU for!

Until we have a new generation of consoles I see little point in getting even further ahead of the current generation of games & associated hardware.

When the next gen. does come along it's going to be a mind-boggling jump for consoles. Far greater than any of the previous generations that's for sure.
Though I wonder if the next gen. will even bother to attempt equivalence with what will be the current PC hardware.
I suspect they may not - instead opting for quieter/small/less power/cheaper to manufacture.

Thats cool for you, for those that are in the market for a new graphics card, this card represents great value, GTX 480 performance at a midrange price. Not long till AMD's new cards now I wanna see some benchmarks dammit

I think that came out wrong - I didn't mean to sound like I was bragging. Rather highlighting that there are almost no games that even remotely challenge current PC hardware.
My previous machine's GTX260 is more than capable of running most current titles maxed out.
Even the 8800GTX in the machine before that is adequate for a majority of current gen. games!

I don't think i've ever been able to play current PC games using my last 3 iterations of PCs.
Surely a strong indicator that PC hardware (or atleast, the requirement for PC hardware) has plateaued.

I question whether there is currently a need for the high-end members of the ATI 6xxx & NVidia 5xx series'.
When a £150 GPU can run 100% of current games @ max, why buy a £300 GPU?
Benchmark scores? folding? willy waiving?
Better to save the money for when a new gen. of consoles arrive; there will then hopefully be more of a motivation to splash out on the top-end PC GPUs, 'cos some games might actually use them!

I totaly agree I think if you have a capable graphics card already and your not wanthing to max out Crysis or Metro2033 etc then there isn't a need to upgrade, There are always people who like to have the latest tech tho myself included lol. I have ordered one of these for £249.99 think its very good value considering its beating the GTX 480 in most benchmarks. Says a week or 2 before more stock and that they don't charge until item is shipped, so next week when AMD drop new cards if HD 6950 is better I will cancel this order and get one of those instead lol. I can't imagine the HD 6950 coming in at this price and beating the GTX 570 though?
Edited by: "Hanktank" 10th Dec 2010

cheers ordered to replace my GTX280

No stock since release day on these.

Best wait for 6950 release next week and chances are it'll out perform this for a similar price.

Most people in the the know think we are going to see a pretty nice price war at the top end of the market in graphics cards.

Very much doubt you'll be seeing these this side of Christmas, even if they get them in stock within the next week or so the seasonal slowdown in deliveries + bad weather will stop it getting to you. Nice New Year pressie though.

It's a good price, now if it could just drop to about £200 when the 69XXs drop then I might even go back to Nvidia!

Still hot compared to other prices around atm, so OP have some heat.

For what it's worth I agree with TehJumpingJawa's comments, consoles are SO far behind PCs these days yet most PC games are now crappy console ports. Still can't hurt to be a bit ahead of the pack now for not much more money IF you're buying a new card. I have a 4870 512MB which I've had for 2 years and to be honest it is starting to show it's age as I game at 1900x1200 and it really does struggle with certain titles (GTA IV, Metro 2033, etc) so I'm going to get a new card once the 69XXs arrive.

How different are these 5 series compared with the 480?
I'm currently looking for a good deal on a 480. Do you think I should wait?

I was happy running my 8800GTS until I got my Dell U2711, now everything looks awful in anything but 2560x1440, and my card certainly can't play most new games in that resolution with any AA/AF or advanced graphics features

Completely agree.

Completely agree.



my gtx 260 (192 core) will run most games at pretty good levels, but not maxed & crashes sometimes due to heat issues.

maybe if you use the 3D functionality this card is necessary.. so tempted to buy this but will likely wait

PNY card for £259.99 - i've called and they are getting stock on Monday!

I've just been hunting for the elusive voucher code box for a different order.
It's hidden away on the card details entry section on the right hand side

After some research seems 570-580 hardly any difference from 480, what a con.

it's more power efficient and produces less heat too from what I've read, but yes looking at stats, performance wise look very similar to 480

not at all, its a refresh of the 480 which uses less power and produces less heat (with a little performance increase to boot)

perfect for those in need of a new card now. I thought the 480 was a waste of time, where as the 460 (and this by the looks of it) look like worthwhile cards imo.

Still might be persuaded to go 480, though, but it would have to be a killer price now.
