Hi all,

I recently purchased 2 GTX 460 cards, and, with the assistance of Zero82z, I have each producing over 13k ppd in F@H.
That is as high a recommendation as you can get!!

Take care..........

The card itself is really good. The main concern I have of it is that I never used gigabytes support before so if the card decide to die on your hand I have no idea what will happen. But maybe they have a awesome support? any one tired it before??? I would go for it. or for the MSI version.

Sent them a motherboard a few weeks ago. It was hassle free, and 2 weeks later it's shipped and almost back. Yet have to figure what they sent me -.- but it was very smooth.

Anyway, for an nVidia gpu i'dd always recommend evga..

I am currently running one of the Gigabyte cards you're looking at. I combed silentpcreview for all the parts that are currently in my PC, scythe fans, heatsink, and antec p183 and all. I have a fan controller that can bring the system fans down to 5V, and the noise produced by my 460 is still quiet- even at load, the 460 isn't much louder than a 120mm fan at 400 RPM. If I had the choice, I perhaps may have waited until the Radeon 6870 came out.
