It could come very close to the point you wont notice the difference only if you benchmark them. Still i want to see and will be trying to 2 x 560s one of the higher clocked editions, push mine very hard and compare the results.

good point here, the main reason I want to add a second card is to fill my case a build look far better with 2 GPUs. But I need to Water them, it's too dam good to not ear the noise of those fan. My son will be more than happy to get my 480 ( for free )

a highly clocked 560 at msrp vs a stock 480 at old msrp will make one cry :)

So far I think a single 480 still delivers in about any game at 1920x1200, but if you play at 2560 then I would say go for 6970's(or modded 6950's).
