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 Today, the GTX 480, though rendered slightly outdated by newer models, is still one of the top performers.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!!!

This card was my first of such caliber. I used this to upgrade from an AMD HD Radeon 6770 (which performed very well for a $120 card), and it is a huge improvement. I've been switching on and off between AMD and Nvidia for a few years now, and I've got to be honest, I was leaning towards AMD for my preferred graphics card provider, that is, until I got this beast.
I was having trouble playing most modern games on my previous AMD above any resolution of 1024x768, and since I planned on buying a new HDTV twice the size of my current one, I figured it would be the time to upgrade my graphics card accordingly. It didn't take long for my attention to be captured by this GTX480, as many reviews praised its power and compatibility. I was warned that the card was big, and I mean BIG. I thought my AMD HD6770 was big, but this monster was about two inches longer, and I had to move around my hard drive and disk drive just to get barely enough room to fit it. The big card also has a big appetite, requiring 600W of power (that includes power for the system too), which I had EXACTLY 600W, which apparantly didn't cut it as I burnt out my PSU on my first benchmark. (I ordered a 900W PSU to come in the mail).

But, once I was able to run this card I was impressed. I could play on a 32 inch HDTV to it's max resolution, on Crysis 2, with DX11 mode on, high resolution texture pack, and max settings at a constant 40-60 FPS easily. (This is with 8GB of RAM, and a quad core AMD 3.00Ghz CPU) Any of my other games didn't stand a chance against this thing, with the excepetion of Metro 2033 which performed just as well as Crysis 2 when put on max settings and DX11. Overall, I was very impressed with this card, despite it's large appetite and big size. I only gave it 4 stars because of my beginning experience with my PSU, but I suppose that's more my fault than anything with the card or Nvidia.
