GeForce GTX 460 SE (Fermi)

Hi, I was looking to put this in to a budget gaming build.
Is this a decent GPU to run game graphics at high settings (RIFT or whatever)?

EVGA 01G-P3-1366-TR GeForce GTX 460 SE (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Normally I run at 1920 x 1080 on a 23" Samsung LCD (SMB2230) 32-bit 60Hz refresh rate

Thanks for your time.

  1. Don't get SE, save a few more pennies and get the regular GTX460 or overclocked version.
  2. I admit I do not know the difference :(
    What is the difference between SE and non-se?

    Hrmmm, the SE is only $159 w/discount.
    This SE here is $129 w/discount

    Would this be the regular version at $149 w/ discount?

  3. SE is smart edition, which is not smart in my opinion as it has reduced clock and overclocking room + running an SE card on that big screen would be problematic, get better the MSI you listed

    ... i wouldn't getting Palit either, i've heard, and many ppl say, that you should avoid it..

    what are your full specs?
  4. Here was the build I was thinking about. Swap out the SE card for the MSI one mentioned earlier.
    I have the monitor and Windows 7 64-bit home premium

    If you can stretch your budget some, here are some improvements:

    PSU: Change that CX to an HX or TX, perhaps the Antec/XFX/Enermax etc. counterparts would be some affordable solutions
    GTX460-1GB 'Smart Edition': Well said shrkbay.

  6. Yes, the black and red MSI is a full 460 and the best value. Looks like a nice build, I would get a different harddrive though, caviar black or spinpoint f3, something with 32mb of cache. They aren't much more expensive.
  7. ok, i am not too familiar with PSUs. What is the difference?

    Here is a corsair TX I found:
    CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 650W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply (69.00 after rebates)

    Would this Enermax work better for some reason? (about same price after rebate)

    XFX P1-650X-CAH9 650W ATX12V v2.2 / ESP12V v2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply


    Also, this Western Digital seems to be 32MB cache
    Western Digital Caviar Black WD5002AALX 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive 59.00

    thanks for the help.
  8. New build with updated parts based on discussion:

  9. Samsung HD103SJ - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822152185&Tpk=hd103sj $65: Twice the capacity for $5 more.
  10. yes, buy a samsung hard drive if you only want it to last for a year or less.
