Thanks Kaz :)

I was wondering if a single 480 watercooled was enough to run my shiny new Dell u3011 and it seems it is when I OC it. I came off Crossfire 5870s and the 480 actually keeps up quite nice and seems to look much nicer

Hope you figure out something to do with the card

Sell the 480, though somehow I am unsure how the 480 and 570 have the same thermals?

Sold 570 as 480 does the same as evga 570 does. I did not want to lose way too much money on 480.

But didn't you say it was an RMA replacement for a GTX295? So even if you sold for $200, you wouldn't have lost a dime off market value.

lol - I paid $600 for my first 9800GX2. The amount you paid is irrelevant.

Exactally, I shiver (I know I have the recipt too...) at what I paid for the EVGA 8800 ULTRA when it was first released (that funky one with the wierd fan placement on it).

But if you get an upgrade from an RMA its worth it. DX10 card vs DX11? No contest there.
