Re: My GTX 480 died -- A reliability study.
the only problem I have had is with my power supply. I have two zotac gtx 480's and until recent had a evga gts 250 for physx. Well, my systems bios would not recognize boot drives, games and windows loaded/booted slowly. As soon as I took out the gts 250, everything was fine. It gets me that my power supply is listed to handle three gtx 480's on nvidia's sli zone, but I can't get two and a physx card to work on mine. Those gtx 480's are power hogs I must say. I use a silverstone strider 1500 watt power supply with 110 (120 max)amps.
