My System Specs

Default

The 480, or-- as I liked to call it when I had it-- "the abomination," is quite an unfortunate creation of a card with its immense power draw and consequent noise. Since you're watercooling and have already bought a 1000w PSU, the criticisms against it are more or less mitigated in your case, but for any other standard build, it is VERY hard to recommend the card.

So, in my opinion, it really just comes down to budget. Is selling the 480 to put toward a 670 not too much of a loss vs. adding another 480? Then I would suggest it. If it is too much of a loss/hassle, then SLI those mofos, and everyone else's opinion be damned.

(I'm kinda curious what your power bill would be like though...)
