The 768MB version looks like it will be a great folding card. Solid numbers are hard to come by at the moment, but should hit ~10K PPD.

Because their marketing department is stupid and likes confusing customers.

Ouch that sucks.

Skimmed the review. Will read it tomorrow when I'm at school . However from the looks of it, I gotta decide between a GTX 460 or a ATI 5770 or 5850. Yes I know the 5770 is a terrible comparison, but the only reason I'd buy the 5770 is so I don't have to upgrade my monitor to make the most out of my next GPU.

I'm surprised that the GTX 465 is getting outperformed by a GTX 460. The GTX 465 has more shaders, costs more, but it performs a couple percent worse. Wth?

Well, I suppose there was a chance of getting PNYs (well, in the North American market anyway) that unlocked to GTX470s or nVidia just wanted to clear failed GF100 stock.

$380 for a GTX470. Had I waited, could've picked up two for SLI. Meh. Good card.

Looks like $230.00 for the 768MB card and $260.00 for the 1GB card. Not bad, and unlike the 5830 it's not a 11" long card.

the egg has the 768mb at 199 and the 1 giger for 220. not bad. not bad at all.
if you look up two of these in sli, they outdo quite a few cards and keep the power consumption below mental lol. nv still has a good way to go.tough

The GTX 460 has higher clock speeds (by A LOT), more texture units, a core design that is more condusive to high level geometry rendering...and the list goes on.

Where in the world did you get those prices? Newegg.ca prices run from $209 for the 768MB version to $240 for an overclocked Gigabyte 1GB card.

Newegg.ca - Computer Hardware,Video Cards & Video Devices,Desktop Graphics / Video Cards,GeForce GTX 400 series,$200 - $300
