Can you provide the ebay link for the GTX 460 for us to look over? There are two version of the 1GB (original 256 bit and version 2 192 bit) plus the 1GB and 768 MB. Nvidia kind of muddied the waters with that model number - just want to make sure we're giving you and informed opinion.

Is the 256 bit a lot worse than the 192 bit ?

Are you in the UK? Current exchange rates to USD would put that at about $125-130 (plus the shipping).

Shipped free. Argreed Gotham :D 


Good card, but it is used. The "white box" GTX 460 he bid on is new. I'd ask that seller for the exact model number on the back sticker (and not the serial number) so it can be Googled and checked out.

Ok thank you and one last question. Sometimes on video cards ive noticed that the card is suppose to be 4200mhz memory clock but says 2100 (4200mhz data rate) is that the same thing ?

Quote:
256-Bit will allow greater bandwidth through the GPU and memory in comparison to the 192-Bit.

No I know that what im saying is for example ive looked at benchmarks on the 460. On the nvidia control panel on the Memory clock it says the card is at 2100 mhz. Then in parenthesis next to it, it says (4200mhz data rate) does it mean the card is running at 4200mhz memory clock or 2100mhz. I know for RAM for example if you have 1600mhz ram it will show up as HALF the speed in CPUID as 800mhz is it the same way for GPUS ?
