My System Specs

Default MSI GTS 450 Cyclone $120 AR, GTX 460 Cyclone $160 AR @ NCIX

http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...r&promoid=1223

It's $140 - $20 MIR. I think it's a good price for a GPU that's only been on the market for a few days. Plus I don't mind MIR either. Also, along with this, the EVGA and Zotac GTS 450 are shipping with free Just Cause 2 @ NCIX.

http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...r&promoid=1223

$180 - $20 MIR. Then there's $140 worth of free games including Metro 2033, Dark Void/SF4/RE5, and Just Cause 2, and a trial of SC2.

Personally, the GTX 460 is a better deal by a mile thanks to the games. And that's coming from a p*****.

You should probably buy a couple. Cause you're going to be eating my hydro bill soon!

Yeah, the 460 is definitely a sweet deal. At that price, it beats the pants off any 450 as far as bang for the buck is concerned.

Haha doesn't matter to me. If I fold 24/7 and with all my systems, I can probably hold you off pretty well. 2 Core Duo/Core 2 Duo laptops, 2 Phenom II X4, one 9600GT, one Athlon 64 X2... yea probably 15k PPD? Add in one GTS 450 or GTX 460 and boom. But the hydro bill would skyrocket and my mom would get super pissed at me. She's already not happy with the hydro bill due to my 12/7 or thereabouts folding. HST doesn't help either.

If I was to purchase one, I'd go with the GTS 450 no questions asked. However with all those free games, I'd get GTX 460. I could probably make a quick $50 or so selling those games out, thus offsetting the more expensive price of a GTX 460 lol.

Yes I'm a casual gamer... Most game I played is SC2, despite p****ing all these games and owning CS 1.6 and Orange Box.

Good deal on the 460 but not good enough. If they do away with the $20 mir and just knock it off the top then I will bite.
