GTX 460 is better, its a different design than the GTX 465 that has slightly less stream processors but more texture units on the back end, and higher clock speeds to make up for the lost SPs so in the end it performs better and uses less power.

^ second that, and I'm pretty sure the feeling around here is unanimous unless we include unlocking into the discussion.

Thats a hell of an OC for only like $20 more than stock so that looks like a pretty good deal.

It's hard to go wrong with any GTX 460s. On TG, any of their 460s are quality picks. I'd personally go for the cheapest 1GB. Shame that they got rid of Bing cashback on TG...

Buy two GTX 460s with your 25% off, give me one and I'll pay you the difference from $250 =)


But yes, even with a discount, I'd still go for the GTX460.

heres the stats.


Galaxy 60XGH6HS3GMW GeForce GTX 460 Super OC Video Card - 1024MB GDDR5


Memory Type: DDR5


Memory Interface: 192-bit


Stream Processors: 336


Core Clock: 810 MHz


Memory Clock: 4000 MHz


Shader Clock: 1620 MHz


What is the max over-clock on this card with out burning it up? what temps do these cards run at. This will be my first Nvidia card in along time are the 460s good. From the benchmarks that i see this 460 is faster then the 5850's out there is this true or does it depend on how hard you over clock it. please let me know

The best GTX 460s are the MSI Cyclone and ASUS DirectCU but neither are available on tigerdirect. For the cards on that site I would go for one of the EVGA cards. They are a better brand than Galaxy and then you can possibly take advantage of their step up program to trade the card in for a GTX 475 when they are released.
Also you should never pay extra for a factory OC. Overclocking a video card is very easy and you will be able to achieve much better results on your own so paying some else to do a worse job is just a waste of money.

Every attempt (OC) always got different result, even on the same type of card.
It SuperOverClock card, which mean it's already factory OC'ed, i doubt it can get more than it's current speed...
Well, that's just my opinion... :)

Yeah, that's probably the one I would pick. Not sure how good their OCing software is but it may be fine. If not I would recommend MSI Afterburner.

EVGA Precision is great. I have used it for literally years. They were the first company to offer something like that.

Hmm, but the EVGA GTX 460 1GB do not use the reference design on the cooler.Its similar to the one used by Zotac, and such get a little hotter than the reference cards.As jyjjy said the MSI Cyclone offers the best cooler right now.

The GTX 460 get to 850+ MHz core when overclocked.So the galaxy card will only overclock slightly.

if i were you i'd forget about a factory overclocked. i'd go for a stock 1gb version, and just overclock it yourself, since the extra texture units can actually make a difference, and gpus OCing is super easy,

1. Go with MSI....their cooling and lack of noise ROCKS!!
2. Make sure your 460 is 1 gig
3. Make sure its 256-bit

At first, try running it on stock. With Rivatuner/ Afterburner, you can always OC it on your own later. Though, I dunno if you'll need to OC the 460 in the first place. But for that, we'll need to know your system specs and the resolution you plan to game at.

For all the challenged people recommending he gets an MSI card. TIGER DOES NOT HAVE THEM. Read the post people, he gets a 25% discount there.

1. The EVGA card overclocks just as well as any of them.

http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum/hardware-canucks-r...

2. It is a bit louder than the MSI but it also exhausts heat from the case.

3. EVGA precision does not allow voltage tweaks except for a few cards that support it. The new Overclock Scanner for 4xx series cards does though. You can always use Afterburner with the EVGA cards.

http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum/hardware-canucks-r...

4. EVGA has a lifetime warranty that includes taking the heatsink off and overclocking.

5. EVGA has a 90 day step up program and will credit full retail price to a new card in that time.

There are two different versions of the GTX 460. One has 768mb of ram and a 192-bit bus for $200. The other is 1gb/256-bit and goes for $230. The general performance difference between the two is 7-8%.

gtx 460 is really in demand more than gtx 465......and if waiting can get you a gtx 460 than it is worthy to wait for some time rather than choosing the gtx 465 and then not getting the expected performance...

the answer i have been getting are not very solid it seems like most people that are answering on this section of the fourm dont seem to know to much about the 460 but yet they still post. simple question accroding to benchmarks the 465 is better at stock then the 460. i know that you can overclock the crap out of the 460's but i have been told that if you flash a 465 with 470 bios it will kick the crap out of a OC'd 460 this true or not?

    A good OC on these cards once you raise the voltage tends to be around 900mhz. The HD5850 is a better card by any reasonable standard and it is also one of the few cards that can actually OC even better than the GTX 460.
