Which GTX 460 1GB?

Hi,

I am considering one of these to cards;

PNY GeForce GTX 460 1GB
http://www.dabs.com/products/pny-geforce-gtx-460-1gb-pci-express-hdmi-789H.html?refs=4294948135

or

MSI GeForce GTX 460 Cyclone Overclocked Edition 1GB

I could not find any benchmarks anywhere between 460's so, considering the price and performance which would be the best option for a build around a Sandybridge i5-2400?


Thanks for your help :)

    Hi Omnisome,

    Good points. Thanks :)

    In terms of performance is there much between these two?

    Also, it would complement the following:
    i5-2400,
    H67 motherboard,
    4GB RAM

    The system is not to be overclocked.

    Based on the above which of the two would be the best option?

    thanks
  3. MSI version has a better heatsink which can come in handy when your O.C.ing.
    Also MSI is a very reliable company

    But for $200 (U.S.) you might as well get your moneys worth and go for a 6870.They are starting to become very cheap now since the GTX560 came out.
  4. To answer your question the PNY version is just a reference model.The MSI version comes factory O.C. and it has a much better heatsink(probably run silent).
