You can get the weeny out of the war, but you cannot get the war out of the weeny

Rest in peace my good old gtx 480, you deserved it

 

Thinks he has a weeny worthy of war.

Looks like a nice card for $200, and it will have lots of headroom for overclocking,  if it's the 106 gpu it does not have any factory OC out of the box,..

so looks like it will handle 12% on core and 15% on memory @ 1110MHz core and 1730MHz memory. All the reviews I just checked shows it does vary well, and comes with a free copy of Metro. Looks like a decent card at a decent price.

I've never had problems with Zotac. Used it in 2 PCs I've built. You shouldn't have any problems with it.

Thanks guys,I like the sound of your replys, I figure it will be a good improvement over my 460 , still a great card but the 768 memory is starting to give me problems at 1900 res . Now just have to wait out U.P.S. and hope it gets here in one piece. :whistling:

The zotac has the crown of the "best oc out of the box" of the 600 series , their AMP! cooler is a beast and you won't see high temps , the only downside is that it's generally pricier than other cards and gets a wee bit loud .

Zotac makes very good video cards, and their aftermarket cooling solutions usually rock.  Good choice.

Had 2 of their 480 amp cards and they overclocked like a champ.   Gave them to my brother a few years back and hes running them without any problems.


All four rigs under water

 Primary Rig - i5-4670k - Asus Maximus VII Hero - Mushkin Enhanced Redline 16GB @ 2133 CAS9 - Evga GTX 980 - Silverstone 1200w

i5 2600K @ 4.2Ghz -Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z -Mushkin Redline ddr3 8Gb -MSI Twin Frozr II GTX 580 in SLI -Silverstone 1200W
Secondary Rig -i5 2500K @ 4.2Ghz -Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z -Mushkin Blackline ddr3 8Gb -EVGA Superclock GTX 560TI in SLI -Silverstone 850w

Third Rig - MSI GT60 2OD Laptop - i7 4700MQ @ 3.2Ghz - 16Gb ram - Nvidia GTX780m - 128,120,240msata ssd - 1TB HD

Fourth Rig -i7 950 @4.2GHz -Asus Rampage 3 extreme -Mushkin Ridgeback ddr3 12Gb -4 GTX 8800 Ultra -Silverstone 1500W
Fith Rig -i5 2500K @ 4.2Ghz -ASRock Z77E Mini ITX -Mushkin Redline ddr3 8Gb -EVGA 670 FTW -Silverstone 800w

I had the Zotac AMP! GTX 580 1.5GB, and it was the highest overclocking GTX 580 I had, and only at 1.125mV's, so it had some more room for overclocking (is also watercooled). Unfortunately, that was the only Zotac I ever owned.

Thanks for the info guys, it's on it's way now so hopefully it won't be a dud, looking forward to the new metro as I really liked the 2033.
