Thanks!

when choosing the brand normally people will look into warranty and customer support. heard that EVGA is one of nvidia beast board partner right now. on the cooler part many reviews said that even with stock cooler the cards running cool and quite. on tom's review both version of 460 end up cooler than 5770 both in idle and load (but still depending on how good your case air flow)

I'm planning on buying one too soon.. this is what I found

This review here showed that the overclocked evga model performed very well. Palit also came out on top. I couldn't find evga myself so I'm going for Palit which is reasonably priced:

Although some people worry about the cooling on Palit and Gainward models. Many people in this thread were dismissing this though:

But, Tom's tested nVidia models.
Does EVGA has similar cooling perfomance? Or is even better?
