Buy two of them and connect them in SLI and you will get loads of performance for little money

Where?

Did you even look on hot uk deals before you posted?

hotukdeals.com/dea…628 is just one of the ones that is cheaper.

Banned

and wow its 70p cheaper then what it is elsewhere?

ebuyer.com/pro…611

That warrents 'CHEAPEST EVER' ?

Also if you are going to SLI them you should probably factor in the more expensive power supply you are going to have to buy to power them in the final price, making them not far off the price of the cards that perform just as well on their own without the need for extra power and noise.

Yes but people complain about Palit cooling. - Noisy and........
Yes it is 70p cheaper than ebuyer.
Yes for SLI you need good PSU. I had my Enermax 850w for 3 years so i am ready for almost ''any'' SLI
I guess most people have at least 600W PSUs and this is enough to run GTX 460 in SLI

Pixmania where selling the overclocked version 2 weeks ago for this price with clock speeds of around 763 mhz making this stone cold the overclocked one had a fairly big overclock with only a couple of cards being faster.

Points missed out you need an SLI board. It's only better value on games where SLI scales well.

For only a little more (£15) you can get a GTX 570 which has more real world performance and if you have a SLI mobo you could add another one at a later date.

From personal experience I would advise most people to avoid going down the SLI route.

You've got initial outlay expenses:
- Beefier PSU
- SLI capable motherboard

Then you've got increased running costs due to the increased power consumption.

On top of that you have the increased noise from 2 sets of gpu fans, and the additional case cooling that might be necessary.

Finally (and IMO most importantly), SLI itself is not a perfect solution. (nor for that matter is crossfire)

For a game to show any significant benefit the drivers have to be given a configuration suitable for the game. These are predominantly released as part of Nvidia's driver releases, so if NVidia doesn't specifically put in support for Games X,Y or Z, then your SLI performance improvement in these games will be nil. You may even see a performance degradation!
Then you've got things like microstuttering & increased latency resulting from the various techniques used for load distribution between cards.
3rdly, as SLI is a niche market most games are not as thoroughly tested on SLI hardware. The natural consequence of this is a greater number of game bugs, crashes & instability directly linked to the use of SLI.

SLI is for enthusiasts, it should notbe seen as an economical way of getting more performance per £.

Wow, now I know where to ask for help on technical stuff which is outside of my area, thanks guys!

I like the words "Cheapest EVER" and three "!!!" in a heading, guaranteed to go minus whatever it is, because you can bet your life someone will prove you wrong (or try) ;-)
(Nearly as good as a "WOW" )

Granted the title was a little OTT but this is still a good price! Are we that fickle that we'll vote it cold because someone oversold it in the title?

I voted hot just to alleviate some of the cold brrrrr.

Oops now who's being fickle?!

Very true, SLI is dependant on 'profiles' being created for the game/application to instruct the driver what form of scaling to use. This is associated to the .exe which the game/application uses IIRC. So unfortunatley the older games will not have an 'offical' SLI profile, and newer games are subject to waiting for a newer or beta driver release or the EVGA SLI Enhancement to be updated.
I myself use 2 gtx460's in SLI and they are very good, however this has come at an expense of a bigger psu, more heat inside the case and loosing pci slots due to the size of the cards heatsink.

This is fairly cheap for a gtx460 but I have seen the MSI and gigabyte OC versions for like £122 on overclockers previously.

All that said, £124 delivered for a gtx 460 1gb isn't a bad price, but it's nothing special either.

+1

Just buy it as you can overclock really easily and play any game to such a high level of details. In fact in BFBC2 i had to turn of "bloom" which is an affect were the sun is shown from surfaces or straight into your "eyes" while playing as i couldn't see where i was going half the time!!

For this money get the games looking like you have always wanted eps. when coming from consoles!

I hope English isn't your first language chapchap.

If not then it is quite impressive, don't you think?

Probably drunk at the time but don't remember.

There are people who clearly need to have English as a first language in order to be able to mangle it quite as badly as they do.
