I've read elsewhere that these 2 models EVGA 015-P3-1480-KR GeForce GTX 480 and EVGA 012-P3-2078-KR GeForce GTX 560 Ti - 448 Classified Ultra 1280MB 320-bit can run with a GTX 580
Which one has more potential with overclocking to yield better performance with an aftermarket cooler @1920x1080res
I'm Looking @ games like Crysis, Crysis 2 and BF3 (ultra settings) in particular

Here are their specs below

480 vs 560ti vs 570 vs 580
Price:
$250 vs $280 vs $320 vs $420

Core Clock:
(OC 850Mhz)700MHz vs (OC 890mhz)810MHz vs 822MHz vs 772MHz

Shader Clock:
(OC 1713mhz)1401MHz vs (OC 1780)1620MHz vs 1645MHz vs 1710MHz

Stream Processors:
480 Cores vs 448 Cores vs 480 Cores vs 512 Cores

Memory

Effective Memory Clock:
(OC 4512mhz)3696MHz vs (OC 4500)3900MHz vs 3902MHz vs 4008MHz

Memory Size:
1536MB vs 1280MB vs 1280MB vs 1536MB


Memory Interface:
384-bit vs 320-bit vs320-bit vs 384-bit

On paper alone the 480 looks closer to the 580 but I know it doesn't always translate
Anyway I got the OC figures for the 480 here and the 560 here

Are you trying to SLI them with an 580? In which case, no you cannot run either with it, with NVIDIA the second GPU must be the exact same as the first GPU, the ram size can be different though the extra ram in the card with most ram will not be used. If your using it as a PhysX card, then you can mix and match, and if you can afford it, I would use the fastest one you can get your hands on, probably the 560.

No SLi for me. I'm just trying to figure out which single card has the most potential b/n the 480 and the 560ti 448

the 480 is the 4xx series high end card, while the 560 is the 5xx series mid range card, the 560 will likely slightly outperform the 480 in most aspects, but not by much since the 480 was high end. The 560, being a generation newer will have better technology and slightly better graphics, though framerate may be pretty much the same. Im a slight bit confused though about the question though-what do you mean by "run with a 580" if you want a single card, and already have a 580 then both of those cards would be a downgrade.

One thing to note here is the GTX480 runs a lot hotter.

Per anandtech's bench It looks like the 560 has better tessellation but other than that the 480 beats it slightly.

What I meant was they can both be tweaked to deliver performance equal to a stock 580,
I'm not trying to SLI at all, I just want a card that can Over clock to at least the level of a 580, since I don't intend on replacing it for a long while.

Killer I'm looking @ a Arctic Cooling Accelero Plus to reduce temps

In all honesty, you may be able to achieve similar performance overclocking either card to the 580-however, overclocking-even with proper cooling will shorten the lifespan of your video card, If it were me I would go ahead and get the 580 if it were me, or if I have a setup for it, perhaps 2 480s or 560s in SLI.

I'm starting to love the SLI idea very much, I wasn't a big fan of it b4, but all that has changed, Newegg had the 480 on sale for $220
