Don't forget that not only are the new nV cards using a lot more juice and hotter, they're also a lot noisier. That's a huge issue for me.

The heat is the biggest issue, to me... even though I run liquid cooled.

For Air Cooled... during summer with high ambient temps, the GTX 480 will probably start malfunctioning. A buddy of mine had this issue (twice RMA'd) with an EVGA GTX 280... and that runs cooler than the GTX 480.

For Liquid Cooled... it would mean I'd have to not overclock my CPU as much since the system cools both the GPU and CPU... or I'd have to get a separate liquid cooling system for the CPU... which I'm not going to do.
