With FREE 3-5 working days delivery a 1GB GTX 460- the card we are all talking about!!- for £158.71!
These are the cards which are making Nvidia the way to go!.

Personally i am looking at tagging this up to my 8800GT for PhysX®-WOW!

Anyway i know the 768MB are cheap but for between 20 and 40 quid more you can have that little bit extra future proofing you secretly crave.

n addition to its GF104 chipset, the Palit GeForce GTX 460 Sonic boasts 40 nm process technology to save power, and 700 MHz clock speed for boosted performances. The GeForce GTX 460 graphics card includes 1 GB of GDDR5 RAM to significantly enhance frame rates in the latest video games, giving your eyes a real treat! It's optimised for Windows 7, and the GTX 460 is equipped with DirectX11 support, CUDA for hardware acceleration, and PhysX for lifelike, interactive images. That's not all though! There's even a mini-HDMi socket for watching films on your computer with the quality of an HD TV.

Aren't they a bit old them cards :) For that 29 quid you could probably get an old physx compatible card as well or simply stick with the 460 safe in the knowledge you have got a great great card :)

Yes but these graphics cards blow consoles out of the water plus for things like FPS,sims,driving games etc PCs are still the best way to enjoy them. And then watch free pron when bored of gaming all from the same machine :)

The 5850 was out a while ago, but it's a superior card to the GTX 460 :)
(I am not a fanboy, believe it or not I now have both cards!)
I bought the GTX 460 786MB for my mediacentre / big screen gaming PC. Very fine card though!

djfluff- nice graph. Wait for the 460 to be out as long as the 5850 and i am sure Nvidia drivers will impove the performance but yes the 5850 looks nice. Why not spend a bit more than the cost of a 5850 and get a GTX470 and then unlock it to perform like a GTX 480 :)

Where do we end- all i was saying was that if you would like a 1gb GTX460 then this price looks a little bit special.

Hi, i am thinking of upgrading my GPU which is a 8800GTS 512Mb OC to a 460 1G however with piracy are people finding that they are making less PC games or dulling the graphics down a bit decause of consoles?

I agree graphic cards are geting way too exspensive but still people are willing to pay such a silly price so why would manufacturers drop the price when people are still willing to pay.

Top end graphics cards have allways been expensive :)
I remember paying over £200 for my Orchid Rightous 3D (4MB!) graphics card in the mid 90's.

So many different reasons and i think you may be on to something. Coupled with a 460 If you were to use your 8800GT as a phsyx card and then play soemthing like Batman on very high i am sure you will be blown away by how good it would looks esp. when compared with a console.

But everything is expensive isn't it? take a family meal out and see how much that would cost ya! All i am saying that if you are happy to spend the money on something like a fantastic GPU then this is a pretty good deal- cheapest i have seen personally.

Not in the way ATI fanboys are "special" you understand :)


The only "fanboy" around here seems to be you...other than the 460 which is a great card for the price Fermi has been pretty poor in many respects. AMD (ati don't exist anymore) are definately the graphics company in the ascendency with the 6XXX series right around the corner...

I agree with you, i almost purchased a ati 5870 the other day, than realised that the ps3 320GB with motion pack cost less.

However PC graphics is always cutting edge, which takes lot of investments in RnD and stuff,

further more the counsole manfactorers make money from software too, so at time they take a hit on ther hardware. if you also consider the ps3 graphics (best of the 3) is the nvidia 7900GTX which is now not a very good card in terns of pc graphics, also the games on pc look much better and cutting edge so to speak, than the same version of the console version, now some may say i am wrong, its its what i belive.

I have a 4850, and have done so for over half a year. Previously had an Nvidia (8800), then a few ATI cards before that, Nvidia before, all the way back to Voodoo.

I will upgrade my card soon (I tried a 5750, but that wasn't backwards compatible with 1.1 PCIe motherboards), but rest assured I will be getting an nVidia card. ATI cards may be great in terms of performance/price, but they're just pathetic when it comes to drivers, and despite the review websites, I'm convinced that they don't render many games as well as nvidia cards do (maybe there's some sort of conspiracy going on? I.e. nvidia are bribing, or are in cahoots with, the bigger developers). The recent 10.8 Catalyst release for example came with a ton of problems, in fact I couldn't even install them on my PC until I tried many different methods (including having to boot into safemode to use DriverSweeper - which is a common recommendation/utility on my AMD forums). Research this and I find there's tons of people with all kinds of difficulties with various catalyst packages, even on AMD forums you have moderators and expert users saying they won't bother using version X.X because it's known to have problems.

I realise everyone has their percentage of problems, even Intel in the CPU market, and all forums will be filled with people with problems, but from my experience it seems that ATI seem to have a much higher percentage of problems. Had zero trouble from the nvidia cards I had, yet with the various problems on the ATI cards I found no shortage of people with the same problems.

Hopefully they'll improve this in the future, but for now I still think they're some way behind nvidia in the functionality stakes, even if their cards are better for performance/price.

That is your opinions, unless you care to back it up with facts.
Personally myself over the last 15 years, I have 26 graphics cards I can remember in several PC's.
15 ATI, 9 Nvidia and 2 other, I have not had a single ATI fail or give me problems. But I have had to RMA 3 Nvidia cards.

And to people who try to bring drivers and the length of time the cards been out into the discussion, after about the first month, both manufaturers drivers (Catalyst/Forceware)will have improvements at roughly the same rate.

I have a 5870 at the moment and I am selling it to buy 2 of these. Cheers for the heads up OP, slightly cheaper than elsewhere I looked.

I know someone who just sold there 5870 for two of these in sli and is loving it! But he did say it does get quite toasty in his case but the fps etc are much higher than with only a 5870.
