Get the Hawk, it is the better card with a better Twin Frozr cooler. It runs at about the same noise level as the Cyclone, but considerably lower temperatures. You will not be able to get it up to 1Ghz. I have read several reviews where they tried everything, but could only get it up to about 950mhz.http://www.guru3d.com/article/msi-geforce-gtx-460-hawk-review/
If you can get the Hawk "Talon Attack" version, it is even better:http://www.guru3d.com/news/msi-launches-n460gtx-hawk-talon-attack/
Talon attack is another version of GTX 460 HAWK? I can't see it in newegg
where do i buy this?
The Cyclone has more reviews becuase its much cheaper, and its been out a heck of a lot longer.
If you don't care about the price I would get the Hawk hands down.
The performance difference isn't very huge, its there just not huge, so if you're looking to save a few bucks just get the Cyclone.
EDIT - I guess the Hawk is on sale and is on par with the Cyclone for price on Newegg ATM, get the Hawk for that price it is a no brainer.
Yea i was about to say, they both cost the same hah yea im getting the hawk version then
