I don't why people try to post one benchmark that proves one card is better than another. They trade swings, but on average the 480 GTX is 10-15% faster but something along the lines of 25-35% more expensive. It is also hotter.
I don't even see the need for such a card right now unless you have > 24" monitor. I'm just glad I bought the card I did for so little as I did. No one wins this round, GPU prices haven't improved. They've improved the performance, but also increased the price.
I've played on a single 28" or 26.5" for five years and have needed the extra performance.
I wish performance and costs would allow everybody to move to 2560 x 1600.
But we'll get there eventually.
