before getting the full heat picture of the GTX 480, it will be a tougher answer.

I had a GTX280 @ stock + I7920 (OC to 4.0 with 1.38 v-core) on a PA120.3 - 3 fans pull and got no overheat problem. Now heat load picture for 480 vs 280, nobody really knows but we are pretty sure it will be hotter. Also, If you ever want to go SLI, than possibly a second rad would be needed.
