Here is what I am looking at right now:

MSI N460GTX Hawk GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... - 2/3 year warranty is making me lean towards the other 2, have also had great experience's with EVGA in the past.

EVGA 01G-P3-1465-AR GeForce GTX 465 (Fermi) 1GB - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

EVGA 01G-P3-1373-AR GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) Superclocked EE 1GB - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: This week for sure

BUDGET RANGE: Would like to stay under $200

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: (Gaming - Starcraft 2, WOW and any new games haven't tried any yet since my system now is pretty weak but want to be able to play everything)

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: New Build so I don't have either yet. Current computer is running 8800gt

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: So far have CPU - i7 -2600k, Motherboard - ASRock P67 Extreme6 LGA 1155 Intel P67, CASE - HAF 922 (also going to buy this week) PSU ( also going to buy this week would love suggestions trying to stay under $75)

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: USA

PARTS PREFERENCES: No preference have always used Nvidia so am more drawn to that side

OVERCLOCKING: Maybe

SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Maybe

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1080 - Viewsonic 24in 1080p model # VX2433wm

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: would like lifetime warranty

Would love any input, Thanks

IMHO you should skip GTX465. if i were you i will get MSI Hawk since the card is a bit cheaper and have higher overclock out of the box. but if you're more comfortable with EVGA because of the warranty and customer service then go for it since most GTX460 can be overclocked to 850mhz without any voltage bump anyway

the GTX 460 by EVGA looks very nice, but to save money I'd get the vers by MSI (I trust EVGA more, however)

MSI VERSION, HANDS DOWN! Best GTX 460, good OC, good fan, and cheap. What else could you ask for?!
