Default Re: GTX 480: Worst GeForce card ever?

The GTX 480 was no where near the abysmal quality that the FX 5800 was plagued with. The GTX 480 actually played games pretty well, even though the chip was crippled.

I honestly think the only failure that was worse than the FX 5800 card was the cooler on the card... jet turbine anyone?
Nah the biggest failure cards in history was everything that went up against the original Voodoo chipset based cards. As a matter of fact most where called 3D Decelerators (excuse the spelling) I had an original Orchid Voodoo 1 card and Quake 3D was the most impressive thing I had ever seen on a PC at the time. Man those cards rocked.
