Hello,

I have been searching for some time for the graphics option that best suits my needs and have decided to go 2x gtx 460.
The list of options is short.

GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 460 1GB or GAINWARD GeForce GTX 460 GS 1GB

Thank you in advance.

Hello, I own Gigabyte GTX 460 1gb and it works very well.
The 2x coolers are silent and my GPU never reaches over 60°C

What about the Gainward version of it? Any user knows how it performs compared to the Gigabyte?

That Asus DirectCU is a good choice. Also might consider the MSI HAWK or MSI Cyclone. :)

I would always go for the Gainward Golden Sample with the great custom cooling. They always put a little extra customization into their cards and the Golden Sample means that they select higher quality components to ensure solid overclocking.

"Gainward designs in only the highest quality components to ensure excellent stability at extreme conditions. High quality low-ESR rugged solid-state OS-CON capacitors are used to improve overclockability and robustness even at critical environments."

"Gainward Grand-Prix Heat-Pipes Hybrid Cooler, was designed in 6 mm copper-water heat-pipes on a copper base conducting heats away from GPU at highest efficiency, then dissipating onto aluminum heatsinks, which are forced ventilated with Great 8 cm double-ball-bearings Fan (GR8) Achieve highest cooling performance at much lower temperatures under power saving mode and full load with much quieter operation noises than reference GTX 460.

"Gainwards GS version differs from the standard cooler by having a higher specification fan in a centrally mounted position. Unlike a lot of non-reference designs the Golden Sample keeps the shroud that exhausts the hot air out the rear of your case, benefiting your whole system."
