Im finally buying my graphic card from US, a friend is bringing it to my country so i need to decide quick between MSI GTX 460 Cyclone or HAWK im sending the $ tomorrow, I saw the HAWK can reach 1 Ghz and it has some nice idle temps but the Cyclone card got more reviews so, which one should i get?

GTX460 MSI Hawk 1GB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Edit: Btw will i be able to overclock a Hawk to 1 Ghz with a 550W PSU?

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.

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.

If you can get the Hawk "Talon Attack" version, it is even better:
