That 'hawk talon attack etc, etc' has a retarded name but looks like a very good video card. The price is perfect, as well.

I'd buy this 560 instead. Same chip but better revision than a 460 and better ocing potential.

Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GV-N56GOC-1GI GeForce GTX 560 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card 189.99(169.99)

or this one oced to 1069 MHz on Hardware Canucks Review.

Newegg.com - ASUS ENGTX560 DCII OC/2DI/1GD5 GeForce GTX 560 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card 199.99 no rebate

best point here is that all these cards are readily available for you to buy second hand and save a packet..

It's already been mentioned, save up a tad longer go 560 Ti, after your major overhaul drop a 2nd one in.

Tahnks for all the comments guys, I went with a 560Ti from Gigabyte - and it's pretty damn cool so far

Now I'm just waiting for Ivy Bridge.
