    please advice me

    GTX480 or GTX570 for folding?
    not gaming. i have a Enermax Rev 1050watt PSU

    today i must buy used GTX480 ~320$ from forum
    or little wait for GTX570 (7. Dec)

    if i get GTX480 next time SLI it (i think ~300$ for killerdeal)

    what is GTX570 stock price? if GTX570 priced 400$ or over i can't spend that money



    i sold my 2 x GTX460, now don't want GTX460 465 etc..

    thanks

    You should probably wait for the GTX570 and check review before you decide on the GTX480. But i think the GTX570 will be the best for folding. :)

    I'm predicting the 480 will be the stronger card, but there's no sure way of knowing until we see some real results.

    Clock for clock on the core it will be about 4% faster, and it comes with a higher stock clock than the 480. So it comes down to how much will the memory size and bandwidth drag it down. My bet is not enough to put it behind the 480. Quite possibly widening that gap when max overclocks are considered.
