Hello. I found a fellow on CL that's selling a used EVGA GTX 460 768mb for $160 used (month old). Originally I planned on getting the Gigabyte GTX 460 1 GB card for $229.99 off of newegg.
Is there a big difference between those two cards to justify the price differential? The used one is about $100 cheaper after taxes...Also, the guy said I could test it out and apparently it's registered with lifetime warranty. Anyways, any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
you can't go wrong with either card. just make sure the CL seller is legit.
Yah, he seemed cool about me actually bringing my rig in to install it before purchasing. Seems legit enough. I just hope it doesn't die a few weeks later, lol. Anyways, he said it has a lifetime warranty so hopefully it's all good. Thx again for the help fellas.
The EVGA looks like the best deal, i've been reading all over internet that the 1gb is better due to its higher bus interface (128bit versus 256bit).
Also, if you are not comfortable overclocking your card, EVGA just released a little "patch" for the GTX 460 called FBP (Free Performance Boost) wich is basiccally an overclock.
