I voted no because…You can do high, but i doubt Ultra will run too smoothly with the 480, though certainly worth a shot.

High will be more suitable. Although the fps is not very consistent in this game. Whatever I choose "high" or "nvidia optimize (low-med) I am getting 45-60 (vsync) but the game runs without lag (My CPU/GPU run at 80%). I've heard that it takes the most advantage if you have an SSD, so try that.
