Nvidia GTX 470/480 strike a pose.

A beast of a processor and huge amount of RAM may make the typical office multi-tasker or video editing junky drool, but when it comes to games, it’s all FPS. Whilst gaming, a screaming processor can certainly help, the real meat of it all are the graphics cards. The better you have, the better you game will look, and the faster it will run. Who doesn’t want that?

The last six months or so have been in my eyes, in ATI’s favor. Their 5xxx series cards are an awesome lineup of top notch hardware that puts even Nvidia’s best to the test, beating them in many areas. But it’s Nvidia’s turn to hit back with their upcoming GTX 470/480 cards. How do they fare? Early benchmarks have the 480 performing slightly better than a 5870. Admirable and intriguing, though not enough to force me to open my wallet. So how do they look? I know looks take a backseat (and rightfully so) to specs and raw FPS performance, but it’s always nice to look at the new hot chick in class isn’t it?
