So, I've recently purchased the GTX 460 SE 1 gb (Superclocked). I know enough about it so that I bought it, but I want to know a bit more.

Is there any real performance difference between the 460 SE 1 gb and the 460 768 mb/1 gb?

Is it possible for me to SLI a 460 SE and a regular 460?

Thanks!

No you need the same model. The se has 288 cuda cores the 768mb and 1gb have 336 as well as higher clock speeds. With lower specs it does get lower fps. Many have dubbed it the Sucky Edition.

Alright, thanks. Does anyone know how good the performance is with 2 460 SE's in SLI? I guess when the time comes to upgrade, I'll just give it to my brother. :p

There are some differences between the models that do impact performance in a real way. Nothing huge, but I'd say the 460 1gb leads the other 2 models by somewhere around 10% real world performance.

The 460 SE has fewer cuda cores and 460 768mb has less memory bandwidth (and less memory, obviously). It's a pick your poison situation with the 460 768mb being better for lower resolution screens and the 460 se a better choice when the full 1gb of memory will be used.

Thanks for the help. I guess it was an ok choice for me, then. 1 gb of memory could possibly come in handy when I upgrade my 1440x900 screen to 1080p.

It's a good card and I almost bought one myself, I took the full 460 1gb since my monitor res is 2048X1152 and though I needed the extra performance.

Whether it was a good buy or not depends on how much you bought it for vs what else you could have bought with the same amount of money.

Well, at the time I bought it, it was $110 after mail in rebate, so I guess I can justify my purchase. Thanks for the great response! :)
