Quote from Guru3D - http://www.guru3d.com/article/geforce-gtx-460-review/30

I'll be very honest with you guys here, I certainly expected much less from the GTX 460 series. Initially I, and everybody, expected it to compete with the Radeon HD 5770 and obviously well below the GTX 465, but that's not the case. The raw specifications and things like shader count really had me thinking, would this card be able to compete with the R5830 for example..? Well yeah, it certainly does. And next to that, it's silent and consumes less power then these products all at roughly the same or lower price level. In fact the GeForce GTX 460 is so good that they without doubt are going to replace the GTX 465 altogether. There is just no point purchasing the GTX 465 any longer.

So the GeForce GTX 460 is done right, we can finally put behind us the endless discussion on noise-levels, TDP and heat. Overall we feel that the GTX 460 series is a very brawny product in the mid-range market. It is also a much welcomed product series as let's face it, the mid-range DX11 segment was filled solely with ATI's Radeon 5750/5570/5830 products. Now we can add NVIDIA to that segment as well. Logic can only assume that ATI is going to either release respin products of their cards, or simply drop prices a little. Regardless of what you prefer, it's good to see NVIDIA now have what seems to be a really nice DX11 class mid-ranger available in this oh so imporrtant segment.

At roughly 200 USD/EUR you can expect to get what you pay for, a silent product that will play your games up-to 1600x1200, and in most cases 1920x1200 quite well. What surprised us was the tremendous overclocking potential, pretty much any and every card we tested today has shown a lot of reserve and room for overclocking, and they scale really well while doing so. Any card, even the cheapest you can find, can be pushed to 800 MHz on the core, period.

As a result, we see a lot of board partners offering many brand based SKU's with several faster clocked / levels. So when we look at the reference baseline we are satisfied with what we have seen. It really is nice performance at that price level, and it will certainly hit a sweet-spot. Obviously we recommend the 1GB version over the 768MB version, not so much for the extra memory but for the 8 ROP partitions the 1GB version has extra. A lot of performance can be found there making it the more mature product. But do not underestimate the 768MB models though as they offer very decent bang for buck. Especially the faster clocked 768MB, it surprised me big-time.

No idea on who the manufacturer of the card is, so I'd prefer to order one of these in instead...

Free delivery options available, if you are members of relevant forums.

Amazing - it;s actually quicker than the much more expensive GTX 465, and almost as quick as a 5850. But given the Overclocking potential of this card, it will likely be as quick as the 5850, for ~£40-£50 cheaper.

GTX460 is faster than GTX465? Is it a joke?

Nope, no joke - looking at the benchmarks there isn't a game where the 465 is faster. In addition, in certain games like Battlefield: Bad Company 2 the GTX460 outperforms the 5850 too.

NVIDIA Driver Downloads now offers new version 258.96 WHQL candidate drivers for NVIDIA accelerators, adding GTX 460 support, and performance improvements for several games.

Voted cold because of the retailer. This is a really bad company. Good luck getting things sorted if anything goes wrong, good luck even getting them to write back to you. And forget it if you think you're ever getting off their mailing list.

This or a 5830... decisions decisions....

I've used Eclipse in the past to buy a monitor which came with a broken power supply unit - they shipped a new power unit out with next day before 10am delivery to me without any problems at all. I'm not saying that there have not been problems for others, but my experience was very good.

Strange to see this go negative, for such a good value card - would you mind sharing where it can be bought cheaper please?

I think it's a no brainer personaly ... This card consistently outperforms the 5830, and in some games outperforms the 5850 too. in addition, I had a lot of problems with the ATI drivers with my x1950 that i'll stick to nVidia now - their drivers just appear much more stable. Just search teh forums for teh problems people are having with the Catalyst drivers still.

But it's your choice - both cards are pretty good for the cash.

I put the 768mb version as an option in the OP

I think you have your facts wrong M8. The 465 is a little faster, allthough this does beat it in some tests. The 5850 beats this in BFBC2. If you are talking about overclocking, the 5850 has considerable OC potential as well...

Don't get me wrong, this is a nice card, and glad to see that they have sorted out the Fermi temps, but dont expect this card to be as fast as a 5850 :)

If you are looking for a 460, I would pay the extra £6 and pre order this one :
Gigabyte GTX460

Comes with a better cooler & pre-OC'd GPU ;)

Sorry I'm new to this.

What makes this one faster mate?

Gigabyte core clock : 715MHz
this one Core Clock : 675 MHz

Basically the gigabyte card is factory overclocked :)
