After using GeForce 8800gtx for 5 years, I upgraded to the GeForce GTX 480 two years ago. Today, the GTX 480, though rendered slightly outdated by newer models, is still one of the top performers. This card is made mainly for gamers. If you are not into high-performance gaming, there are cheaper video cards such as the sub-$80 GeForce 9800GT.

The GeForce GTX 480 is 10.5 inches in length and takes up two card slots, so make sure you have a full size computer case, not one of those slim case, mini case, etc. It requires a minimum of a 600 Watt power supply. Though not necesary, it needs as fast a CPU as you can get in order to go full speed. Also, a card with this much power can get really hot, so make sure your PC cooling is well taken care of. All these requirements drive home the notion that this card is mainly for PC enthusiasts.

My PC has an Intel Core i5 Quad-Core 2.66GHz CPU, and together with the GTX 480, I am able to get good frame rates (at least 30fps) in the most resource-demanding DirectX 11 games such as Crysis 2 and Metro 2033 at fullest details and the highest resolution my monitor can produce (1680x1050, 1600x1200). Note that 30 fps minimum is satisfactory to some but may not be so to others. If you have monitors that can go to even higher resolutions, or if you want to be more "future-proof", or you want a faster card for 3D gaming, or you simply want higher frame rates, then consider getting a more recent and powerful card model like the GTX 580 or 680.

** EDIT 1/17/13: GTX 480 supports 3D Vision also. You also need a monitor that supports 3D Vision as well as a pair of 3D Vision glasses. Neither are cheap, and so 3D gaming is still a niche.

This card is AMAZING!

It runs everything you put on it. My StarCraft 2 on 1080p runs 150FPS+ with everything set to ULTRA.
I was worried reading other reviews about the noise but it is not a problem at all.
When the FAN is 100% it is noisy! But all games run with FAN at 40% or less, which is almost silent.

Just know that this card is HUGE! I have a Storm Scout case and it fit like with ZERO extra space. It is also important to know that this card demands a good PSU.

For under $250 this card can simply not be beat. Other cards in this price rage are "nice" but simply do not compete with the 480gtx.

Pros:
Fast
DX11 (stunning!)
Download EVGA Precision X(Easy to overclock it to 800mhz and add in custom fan settings)
Cheap! For $250 this card is a tremendous value. Games like BF3 eat GPU RAM alive. 1gb will not be enough and 1.25 is cutting it close. Go for at least 1.5gb if you are playing games like this.
Can run crysis 2 maxed out with the DX11 add on!

Cons:
Loud: at 100% fan speed this think sounds like a vacuum cleaner. Create custom fan profile an the fan should never go above 70-80% which as about as loud as an average case fan.

Of course a 680gtx will out perform this card but it is also $500. If you are a semi-hardcore gamer and can not splurge on the 680gtx this is a must!

Warning: If you overclock please be careful and watch temperatures!!!

I actually had this card from Amazon over a year ago, but I never got around to reviewing it. After spending so much time with it, I figured it was about time.

I will say, this card does have amazing performance even today, but it's not entirely optimized. It will use A LOT of power, and generate a lot of heat.

With a AMD Phenom II Quad Core 960T at 3.0ghz, I can run Skyrim with mods at 60 FPS, Crysis at near 60FPS at 720p, and pretty much any other game at or near 60FPS at high graphic settings. It won't run all games maxed out at 60FPS with a lower end quad core, but it will run at decent FPS with maxed settings.

As far as overclocking, you WILL need better cooling. Also, I didn't get that much performance out of overclocking, but I've heard many other say they have. Maybe I didn't do it right, or it was just my system.

This all being said, it still can go against todays games, but there are better options. For example, a GTX 670 may cost about $100 more, but you get much more power, less heat, and much less power consumption.

My GTX 480 also burnt out after a year. It just...stopped after starting up a game of Far Cry 3. I had plenty of power (880w Power Supply), but I was only using stock cooling with no overclocking. I've heard a lot of people having their GTX 480's burn out too, so be warned, especially if you're buying it used rather than refurbished.

I recommend saving your cash for a 670, or something newer that has less power consumption and heat generation. Not only is it more powerful, but it also less likely of failing due to heat reasons.
