I'd keep the 570... same performance, lower power consumption, lower noise level and lower heat levels. Also easier to sell down the road...

Reason I asked is that yes power consumption is lower but heat and noise is same.

TX for the comment.

GTX 570 because it is probably easier to overclock than the GTX480.

But if you have them already: WTF , just keep them both :)
