No kidding, I don't have any of these issues with my SLI 480s.

He's got an 1100 watt PSU too, same one I have. So I really doubt its the PSU. When it crashes its an nvidia disp error. He insists on dual GPUs I stick with the single fastest card.

I don't really know what to tell you. Your experiences are not reflective of most of the user feedback I've read (or my own). I've played all the games you mentioned in a previous post and I've never had any problems to speak of (the only exception I can think of is the slow loading in BC2 that has since been fixed, BC2 screams on my rig).

It could due to unstable overclock of CPU and or GPU.

I don't plan on buying a GTX 480 ,my two HD5870 running in cross-fire plays everthing just fine.Maybe nvidia's next generation I will try but right now I am happy,I just wanted to know if you had a game running side by side and both cards set the same could you tell a difference.

This. No problems with any of those games either.

I've also yet to have a single blue screen or nvidia driver error since I first installed Windows 7 well over a year ago, much less since I installed my 480's.

I just got the HD5870 in tonight. Installed the 10.6 with the new 10.6 (6-23) application profile. Jumped right into BF BC2. I enabled DX11 and its butter smooth. I had to force DX10 and render ahead to 0 on the GTX 480 just to get smooth performance. That worked good on the HD5870 also. I didnt even reformat with the HD5870 and its much smoother than the GTX 480. Is it faster? I don't know yet, I'm just looking at perception of game play first since using the GTX 480 thats been the most disappointing thing about it. The GTX 480 might benchmark faster but as of now BF BC2 runs much, much better on the HD5870. I wish the GTX 480 was this smooth since it gets great numbers in game.

I've got some numbers to compare and will do that soon. right now I'm just going through the games the GTX 480 wasn't running smoothly to compare.

Assassin's Creed II is smoother and benchmarked just as fast. Crysis is just as fast.

It certainly is odd the issues you are having with your 480. Maybe the card itself is defective. Bad Company for me is very smooth at maxed settings.

Why do you keep doing this?

I Googled "Assassin's Creed 2 480 5870" to see what others (besides me) were seeing as far gameplay experiences and the third freaking link has you saying just the opposite of what you said in this post.

- GTA IV - what can I say, its still not 100 FPS and there is no AA. It runs "well"
- BF BC2 - runs amazing. according to fraps avg FPS are up a lot.
- Just Cause 2 Dark Tower is 120 FPS avg now, vs 89 on the HD5870.
- COD MW2 MP was very fast, a lot faster than HD5870 but I have no hard numbers yet
- Assassin's Creed 2 - runs freaking awesome, much smoother than 5870

Remember, my HD5870 was at 1Ghz core, 1.3Ghz, the GTX 480 is stock.
It's pretty hilarious that no one else seems to have the issues you are having with the 480, and no one else has a problem keeping their story straight except you.

BF BC2 - runs amazing.

COD MW2 MP was very fast, a lot faster than HD5870

Assassin's Creed 2 - runs freaking awesome, much smoother than 5870

Assassin's Creed II is smoother and benchmarked just as fast.

The MW2 and BFBC2 stuff has been beaten to death so we'll just talk about AC2 this time. How the hell is AC2 running smoother on the 5870, when in a previous post you claimed that it was much smoother on the 480?

If you are going to keep this 5870 is smoother crusade going you might wanna brush up on your past post history so you don't keep contradicting yourself. Your credibility is in the toilet at this point when it comes to either card.

Your claims are starting to get irritating at this point (and suspect), these 'problems' are definitely on your end and nothing to do with the 480 (unless it is defective).

Enjoy your 5870, sell the 480 and be done with it.
