It is a great price,

What makes the 480 better over the 470?

What is your processor and Power supply? I don't know if you said it in this threat at all, but it can bottleneck easily.

That CPU is fine, and the PSU will be too. It is already working based on another topic.

I would recommend the OP get this card here. It's a ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1050 Ti mini.
It recommends 300w, it's 4GB Dedicated GDDR5 and the new generation gaming card will last you for some years. No card is going up to $250 that is good for your processor. If you ever plan on upgrading your processor for a low cost, I'd go with the AMD FX 8350 Black Edition.

Here is the link to the card:
