Just go to CompUSA.com or tigerdirect.com. They have the GTX 480 for $529 and an overclocked version for $549. Considering how rare these puppies are, it's not that bad of a deal. You're going to pay a little over retail for one of these!

Thanks for the heads-up. How's the customer service with Galaxy though? If it's for the same price, I still prefer EVGA. They're flawless when it comes to returns and exchanges.

Galaxy has been around since 1994. The company is based in Taiwan. There is a 24/7 service number for tech support. Galaxy products are sold at major retailers and e-tailers like Newegg, Best Buy, and Fry's. I don't know their warranty policy though. STill, if their products are carried by BB and Newegg, I'd trust them.

They were 519 earlier...Kyle over at [H] is backing them, saying he will take care of any CS issues.

I beg to differ.... I love eVGA but I've had exceptional luck with BFG, PNY and eVGA... all tier 1 companies in my mind. I've never had the priviledge to own an XFX card but I trust that they are as good as people say.

Oddly enough... I've also owned an Albatron card which has lasted longer than any (6800 GT) and is still heavily used today. Maybe I'm just lucky?

Anyone know if they still sell Gainward cards? I'd kill for one...

BFG is as good as EVGA, at least IMO. They do have a lifetime warranty and are always quick to resolve issues.

Didn't Gainward stop selling in the US a few years back? Pretty sure they're just Europe/Asia now.

I have yet to have a graphics card die on me. So really it is up to your preference. I buy XFX when I can for the 2x lifetime, it helps when it comes time to sell.

So that means it doesn't happen to anyone and it can't happen to you in the future? Love that reasoning!

In any event, I've had two fail on me in my history of gaming video card use, and I rarely even overclock.

No smart ass I am saying it really doesn't matter whose fscking sticker is on the outside. You aren't gonna get a better made reference card from one company to the next. All that really matters is CS and warranty.

I can get a Galaxy 470 for $314.99 and a Galaxy 480 for $469.99 through one of my suppliers at work..... I've been very tempted to get the 470... but I'm not familiar with Galaxy.

Suddenly, the GTX 480 no longer appears on the CompUSA or TigerDirect websites. The GTX 470 is still available though. Looks like you guys snapped up the GTX 480s already!
