Connectivity wise we see the same choices as the GTX 470, two dual-link DVI connectors supporting all high-resolution monitors and all the way to the left you can see a mini HDMI connector. Mini HDMI was chosen to be able to position the connector at the lower half, so that the top half can exhaust hot air. You will need a special HDMI cable due to this. One could wonder why DispalyPort was not opted, then again .. if youy like to hook up a High-Definition TV, HDMI certainly is more convenient.
Here we have the backside, no protective plate like some of the predecessor cards had. Overall, a clean looking PCB with a back nicely colored black. Here as well a gap in the PCB is located at the ventilator area, this will suck in a little more air -- handy for cooling.
The GeForce GTX 480 has a maximum power consumption of 250 Watts, as such you'll need to power the card with both a 6-pin and 8-pin PCIe PEG lead from your power supply. We recommend a 550W~600W power supply to start with, with on card of course.
