Got it brand new at mircocenter for $239.00. I don't care about power.. I have a 1000W PSU, lol. EVGA GTX 480.
Hey I really can't say much ** looks at 460 sli **

Really for a new 480 that's not too horrid.

For the Price I think its the best bang for the buck. I am waiting for the next cards from Nvidia/AMD. Everytime I go to buy a card, they start a war. Next Series should be interesting. So I cheaped out and got an older card. This is actually the first Nvidia card I have owned since 2004. I have always had ATI Cards.
