Anyone have experience with Inno3D, the GTX 480 is a seriously good card, even beats a 6970 in lots of benchmarks

I do. But it was GeForce 4 MX 440 64MB, it did all right :-)

good deal

Good card, but runs REALLY hot and uses tonnes of power.

Good price for a good but flawed card. Only get this if you know what you are letting yourself in for.

I am sorry guys but I do have one. It is not inno3D but ASUS and I can tell you this is the best purchase I have ever made.
So I am asking you, do you have any experience with GTX 480 series or it is just some stuff you have heard or read on internet?

I currently have an ASUS GTX480 installed in my gaming rig. I got it when OCUK where selling this card at a similar price to this a while back. In some instances it ran extremely hot (80c+) and affected the internal temperature of the rest of my pc and its components.

I was aware that the card had these temperature issues when I got it, so I anticipated needing a custom cooler for it at some point if it was too out of hand. Shortly after I got it I went ahead and got a Zalman cooler for it, removed the entire outer casing of the card, removed the fan and removed the heatsinks and thermal paste that originally came with the card. I then replaced them with the Zalman cooler and its components. Since then my temperatures have dropped by over 50% and I am extremely happy with the card now, however I would advise caution to others getting it and always tell them to make sure that they are aware of the known and common issues that the GTX 400 series of cards are renowned for.

Long story short, yes, I do have experience with the GTX 480.

I really appreciate your comment. I guess I am the lucky one cos I have Antec 900 with side fan so I just adjust its speed (RPM) to maximum and here we go. No more than 72 degrees when gaming in warm room during summer.
Thanks again for respond.
My point was that I think that GTX 560Ti and GTX 570 are still too expensive.
I recently posted GTX 580 for about (£334) but i think that this is still too much.

I agree completely that performance = price wise the ASUS GTX 480 is very competitively priced now. Even accounting and including the price of my custom cooler I think I got a very good deal, and I am very happy with it. Its just that many people may not have a case with efficient cooling, as you do, or the capability to fit a custom cooling unit. In those instances I would advise people to consider very carefully if a GTX 480 is for them.

If anyone does get this card and are considering fitting it with custom cooling I would strongly recommend a Zalman as an option. Even when overclocked the temperature does not exceed 50c (in my experience), and the Zalman is also considerably more quiet than the stock fan fitted in the 480. The 480's stock fan being exceptionally loud when it reaches high speeds.

Great price!

Great price!


Finally some more positiveness.

I recently purchased this card coming along with other pieces for my new rig such as the Antec 902 case, Intel Core i7 950, 12gb DDR3 RAM and some Asus Intel x58 motherboard.

The price of this card is very reasonable as quite recently the exact same card is being listed under OC's website for £269.99 which is a great difference! Will be looking forward to opening the box! :-)
