    Nice deal on those Gigabytes, specially given the cooler and exceptional warranty!

    As someone who's just put a Thermalright Shaman and G2 VRM on his Asus 480, I must say the Gigabyte deal dis-pleases me.

    That's 580 performance for £230! The new 480 chips are much less leaky and hot than their early examples, I can't get mine to use more than 230 watt with 1150mv and 850mhz GPU clocks rammed up its jacksie..... Max temp 67c.

    nice deal with the gigabytes... not gonna ask what you had to do to secure that one :D that SOC would have easily been a £460 card not that many months ago.

    Massively nice. Very tempted to go 480SLI now for my gaming build (instead of saving up for a 5xx series) but I think I'll be pushing it with my current PSU.

    Yeah the SOC's have cherry picked higher binned chips that run at those speeds on low voltage too, whereas the other model doesn't.

    Well worth the extra, and well worth it over a 570 all day long.....

    Its a no-brainer for me my friend. 480 SOC will have a higher quality chip, more memory and a better cooler for less money....
