Default Gtx 480 for 200 at ncix

I saw that ncix has gtx480 for 200, in terms of perofamce, is it worth it or should I wait for something better for 200?

The 480 has been an amazing bang for buck for the last little while and at $200 its great performance. Personally I am not a fan of gtx 480 as they suck back way too much power and put out too much heat for my liking. I would rather have a bit less performance and not deal with the power and heat. If you don't care about those points, then its a great deal.

I traded a pair of 460's for a used evga 480, it is loud as heck, but it packs a heck of a punch and they overclock well, especially under water :) can match a stock GTX580 with overclock.
