Really good price for the best card for under £100.
This is a mad deal for the price, however, I will hold on to my GTX260 a while longer and jump to GTX 660 TI Have some heat anyway.
I got 560ti for this price but good deal nevertheless
Will this Run Flight Sim x at top settings (given a good system overall)?

The 760 is a better card and a little cheaper than the 660ti
How will this compare to a Radeon HD5850? Is it quiet also?
Bought. Thank you.
Was looking at this and got excited, but then checked that my old HD6950 is much better and this would be a downgrade.

The coolers on these Asus models are really good, you wont hear it and it stays cool.

This card beats the 5850 in most things anandtech.com/ben…512
Does anyone know if this comes with the nVidia free to play bundle? I know the US version seems to, and this graphics card does on other retailers, but no word on this on the product description.
Have some heat, awesome deal as these still go for £120 elsewhere
HOT Ordered.
Thanks rev6 - very good spot.

A bit quicker, not really an worthwhile upgrade.
Hi - can anyone let me know how it compares to this and help me decide which one to go for? It was £75 the other day but has gone up a tenner since

Looks like those cards have been failing too much and recalled

I saw that - but it does look like an isolated case (the recall info was given by the vendor not the manufacturer and I can't find anything else that mentions it). My current card is a Leadtek (an ancient 7900GT) and it's been flawless. Comes with a 3 year warranty too.

I have a Nividia GTX 460 GPU that is playing up, but I'm trying to resolve it (and spending many hours trying!).
Will this be a good performance upgrade?

Have you by any chance been getting the same problem as I was with my GT450S. PC freezing sporadically/can't move mouse or do anything, sometimes doesn't come back to life and have to restart PC or sometimes comes up with the Nvidia driver stopped responding?
Edited by: "Lucky_Taz" 12th Jul 2013
@ Lucky-Taz, I hear the sound as if a device has been removed and then plugged back in again and PC has been freezing for 2-3 seconds while that happens. It happens especially when playing games or doing anything GPU intensive and it repeats all the time.
The Nvidia support guys have been helpful, but have not fixed the problem. Have tried reinstalling drivers, including older/newer versions in safe mode, etc. Have even removed and reseated the GPU.

What driver version are you currently running?
You can't run anything after 314.22 at the moment on the 400/500 series of graphics cards.
Hopefully this is the issue you have as it took me quite a while to work out why the lock ups were happening to my PC.
Unfortunately if you are already using this driver or lower, I am unable to help further.

It's around 220-230. Probably a better option for me since it will go down by the time i need GPU, but it is not cheaper than the 660ti (asus one on amazon is 180).

This is about equal to a GTX 470, so this would be a downgrade in performance and memory, The only improvements would be power usage, and heat.

Thanks Lucky_Taz. I am running the latest driver (320.49), and I usually use the latest as I get prompted to update by Nvidia (and they know I have a GTX 460!
I must say though:
i) the Nvidia Chat Support guys also knew I was running 320.49; and
ii) one of them did ask me run an older driver 310.90 which I did, but the problem still persisted. I have since reverted to 320.49 (just to avoid being asked to update by Windows update and also Nvidia).
They also asked me to monitor GPU temperature and also run Video Card Stability Test, but neither of these revealed any problems.
Do you think I use driver 314.22?
Thanks

It certainly won't be helping your situation and they have known about this bug for quite some time by the amount of posts on the Nvidia forum. It only effects the 400/500 series GPUs and they don't seem to know why. Geforce 400/500 series forum
Again I can't say that it will be your problem, but each time I update I end up going back to an earlier driver. I was running soemthing like a 310 version but then I came across the posts stating 314.22 was the last stable one before it broke.

Im hoping for a price drop on the 760 soon my friend picked up an EVGA reference design one in Germany for 199euro why does the UK always get such high prices on electronics T_T

I've got a GTX 460 and been having similar problems when playing some games. I have been working my way down the old drivers and currently runnning the 306.97. Still got some problems but not as often, i recon there is something been installed on the 320 version that uninstall misses and leaves on your system.

Something I read somewhere mentioned using a Driver Cleaner but I am not sure about doing that and opinions are mixed.
When I was installing an older driver I made sure to select the clean install option which may have been under "custom install"
On another occasion I uninstalled my graphics card, restarted and made sure to use the earlier version driver.

Sorry to the OP for somewhat hijacking their thread.
Do you think a Dell Vostro 430 Mini Tower could handle this at all? It's a few years old but still packs a bit of a punch and has been upgraded a few times. It still has its i7 CPU, but has upgraded RAM (now 16GB) and a GTX 460 SE (Green Edition) graphics card, 1GB of dedicated memory. It is connected to two 3D 22" Samsung monitors, and although it works with the GTX 460, it ain't perfect (uses one DVI and one HDMI) and I think if this GPU would fit inside, it would work better with the 3D side of it. Perhaps even more than two monitors?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Edit: Oh, I've just read some of the other comments. I see I'm not the only one with a GTX 460 problem. The biggest problem for me was the problems with the NVIDIA control panel and the lack of support. Very literally, there was nothing inside the control panel settings list, and I tried every suggestion to no avail. This meant not having any customisation at all. I've been able to play games, but the problem has become quite ridiculous. Yes, I tried using driver cleaners, etc. I've done a complete wipe with a recent upgrade, which included a storage upgrade, thus no trace of any old drivers at all.

This card appears to be a similar size to your 460 (which uses 2 slots), but may be a little longer - the Asus website has this at 8.39" (inches), so you'll need to measure if you have enough space lengthwise.

I think your 460 uses 1-2 6-pin PCI-E power connectors, while this uses only 1, so is most likely to draw less power. It also means you will most likely not have to upgrade your power supply (PSU). Although, if you are in the slightest doubt, head off to the Dell Forums/Desktop Video section & post your query there, giving your PSU details (make & wattage) & the GTX 650 Ti card you're thinking of installing.

This card can support up to 4 monitors simultaneously, & your PC spec is more than enough for it.

The Vostro 430 tower could do with a fan up front to blow over the graphics card, but if your 460 survived the apparent high temps then this card should be OK I reckon as it probably has much better cooling.

Thanks a lot for that—a great help, and I quite likely will end up buying it. (For peace of mind though I think I'll follow your Dell forum suggestion.) And indeed, I did end up forgetting to mention the PSU. It was upgraded with this one.

No problem

The Corsair 430w PSU will be able to run it fine along with the rest of your hardware (saw your thread at Dell). Corsair PSUs are very good to excellent & it has the all important dedicated PCI-E connector. If you get a more powerful graphics card in the future - one that requires 2x dedicated PCI-E connectors, then a PSU upgrade will be the best option.

The only thing left to determine now is whether it will physically fit in the Vostro case or not.

Unfortunately, the one thing that nobody can guarantee is whether the issues you had with the 460 will persist or not.

Indeed. I also got quite a positive reply on the Dell forums. It seemed likely that the card will fit inside my case, but in the event it wouldn't another version of the card (with one fan) was suggested. I suppose that might be my only option now that this one is expired.

Edit: Say, what do you think about the suggested EVGA version? Only a couple quid more than original price on this page and next day delivery from Ebuyer. Its main problem that I can see is that it only has three inputs, as opposed to the four on the original card, but that isn't a major problem for me. It's unlikely I'd need four connections. Anything else to note? If I'm going to consider this, I should make the order in not much more than five hours.
