    The 465 is a little longer than the 460, doubt it would matter in that case though. I recently ordered a 465, but only because it was 40 bucks cheaper than the cheapest 460. All the reviews I read had the 460 as the better card, unless you get lucky and get a 465 that unlocks to a 470.

    465 is not a bad card, but the 460 is a really good card. I wouldn't get the 465 unless like me you find a really good deal on one, especially if you plan on SLIing them (unless you want 3 way sli, 460s won't do that)

    These are the 2 I have seen recomended most, good deal on the MSI one with MIR right now.

    The EVGA superclock is good too I think and comes with Metro 2033 right now if that's worth anything to you.
  2. MSI GTX 460 1 GB Cyclone is arguably the (or one of) best 460 available right now.

    What resolution is your monitor?

    The GTX 465 is fairly comparable, and to help move them nVidia is giving away copies of Mafia 2 if you buy a 465/470/480 right now. LOL So there's an advantage there.

    Over all though, I just generally like the GTX 460 better. It's more refined, less power, cooler, etc.

    Here's a direct comparison between the 465 and 460:

    They kind of trade off, where one beats the other.
  3. Don't bother even thinking about the 465 (google it for reasons).. Get the 460 1GB.. They scale nicely when put in a 2-way SLI config matching (sometimes surpassing) the performance of a single GTX 480..

    I'll use a 1080p full hd tv for now as my monitor is kind old 1680 x 1050 max resolution
  5. Emperus - Actually, the GTX 460 SLI setup can fairly consistently beat the GTX 480.

    Between the GTX 460 and GTX 465 I personally 'prefer' the 460. It's really what the 465 probably should have been in the first place.
  6. Yeah i know.. The GTX 465 is the vista in the Nvidia camp whereas GTX 460 is 7 (vista done right)..

    I believe you should get the GTX 460 1GB (MSi Cyclone or Asus DirectCU or Palit Sonic Platinum*best of the lot according to THW*)
    It performs better and in SLi setups SFAIK.
  8. If the MSI card in the first link had been that price on sunday I would have ordered it instead of the $183 Palit GTX 465.

    Conclusion :

    Quote:
    Yet, a lifetime warranty isn’t very valuable once technology improvements make an old card worthless. While cards more than three years old are often in line to be replaced, the few that remain in use add significant support cost to manufacturers who offer longer coverage periods. Asus, ECS, Gigabyte, and MSI try to balance their cost against the needs of most buyers by providing a warranty that’s exactly three years long. Among these manufacturers, Asus has the greatest peak cooling capability and clock speed, Gigabyte has the lowest price, and MSI falls in the middle with a huge cooler and moderate price.


    Forget about the 465, it runs warmer and trails the 460 in most tests.
