Just found out while while surfing...the GTX460 will be available for 10K in India (app. 199USD).

How true is this? Also, is it worth the buy when compared with the GTX285?

Cheers'...

200/ 249 is not bad, imho, for fermi!!

My specs are:

MSIGTS250 (1 gig)
Core2Quad@2.33
4Gg DDR3 RAM
G41 Mobo
Windows Vista Ultimate 32 bit (soon to be Win7 ultimate 64 bit)

I'm looking at a resolution of 1600x1200. I've been using the GTS250 for over a year now and am keen on upping the performance of the rig, if possible, without changing the processor. :) 

The games I like are:
COD6MW (1&2)
Half Life 2 Series
L4D2
Crysis
AvP
Bioshock 2

Stuff like that. So how much will DirectX 11 matter? It would be silly not to get DX11 at that price, imho...

the $200 price point is for the 768m card not the 1g.



This article shows the 5830 generally out performing the 768m card for the same price point. If you're going with the 460 I'd say pay the extra 30ish bucks and get the 1gb...*cough* or go with ati*cough* *cough*... sry allergies...

Yeah, I'm getting convinced on the 1 gig card at 256 bit. That's for about 249 USD. It would still be a good deal though, even when compared to the ATI cards.

Any suggestions on my post regarding resolution, etc? Would the 1 gig (256 bit) be a good idea for my specs/ resolution, etc?

At the res that you are playing at there is not a great difference between the two but if you were thinking of doing a 2D Surround set in the future then the one or even perhaps the two gig version would be required.

Did you mean "3D" instead of "2D"?

No I meant 2D as in Nvidia's given name to three screen gaming.

Oh ok, my bad there! :) 

Thanks for the benchmarks. The 470 is the clear winner, but it's also double the price. I guess the 1 gig 460(256 bit) is the best deal for the price. Plus, it'll be able to handle things for the next year or so.

Thanks everyone, for your views. :)
