I just think it is funny comparing a brand new card to something that is well over a year old.

Personally I don't care about any of the new cards. Probably not going to upgrade till 2013/14. Only metro 2033 at max makes my cards feel underpowered. Till games start getting more demanding or if I go triple displays I wont even think of upgrading. Some of you guys say the 480 was a failure... Well the only flaw was the heat they produce and I water cooled them so thats not really an issue. They have lasted me 2 years and still are going strong.
Well put my good man, I only have 1 480 and that's still running strong with a nice overclock of course. Heat was never a problem for me because of the heatsink I bought for it. I think people who sold their 480's for the 580 is a fail. The performance increase was not worth the money people put out.
