very good price IMO, especially considering its EVGA who have legendary customer support and a 10 year warranty ( i think).

if i was buying, i would pay £10 extra for this better brand and factory OC'd version instead of the PNY vanilla version which is £125 @ ebuyer

free delivery through avforums and hexus etc.

Nice :)!
if i hadnt jumped on the super deal from scan when i got my 4870 for £49, i would probably buy this tbh :)!

Well the PNY is good and it is a reference design not these hot running odd ones with the fan at the end of the card ie these older Evga card designs. Also PNY give lifetime guarantees if you register the card online PLUS it is so easy to overclock. These superclocked cards can go up 763MHz but my PNY vanilla ( a reference design) is upto 837 MHz which took 5 seconds to set up.
Save all the money you can with these GTX 460s as they overclock fantastically.

I love it and when looking at my Xbox compared to my PC ( with this card ) it is the difference between heaven and hell.

GTX 560s only a few weeks away, personally unless you really need to upgrade urgently I'd hold off and see how the new cards perform and what affect this has on the pricing of the current crop.

But haven't these cards already gone down about £50 in anticipation of the new cards?

Tbh you're probably right, I doubt if the 1Gb 560s will launch much under £180. But you'd be gutted if you paid £136 for a card and it dropped £20 a week later, so no harm in waiting unless you really are desperate imo.

Your dead right and that's why i haven't bought one as the reckon the difference will be massive as there's one part of the 460 that's locked down and with the 560 it will be unlocked giving a massive boost in performance its like the 480 and the 580. There will be some great deals over the next 2 weeks on the 460 and would expect to see them for around £100 with the 560 coming in at around £180 at launch so it is worth holding back as grabbing a couple of cheap 460's for SLI will be great and if i didn't already have a 4890 i would of bought one ages ago but according to all the benchmarking site the 460 is not a upgrade for the 4890 more of a sideways move with increases only a couple of FPS but SLI is a massive increase especially at the right price.

good advice, im waiting for the sandy bridge prices to fall a bit too before i build my new gaming rig.

@lucas 4870 for £49? gutted i missed that, i'd of had 2

It's a good price but I cant see then need for nvidia to drop the price when the GTX 560 is released as it's not aimed at the same segment. The 560 will go head to head with the HD 6950 1GB edition.

Now for me nvidia should make a 460x2 1.5GB for £200 and I'd be a happy man!

Was so going to get this.
Was reccomended by most to get this but after hearing about the 560's might get one of those instead.
Does anyone know what PSU would be needed for this new 560 ive only got a 480W supply.

try this, should give you an idea educations.newegg.com/too…tml

The new card isnt listed as its not out but that site says im only 80W away from maxing my PSU for what i currently am running. Been on other sites which are slighty less.

Do you think its advisable to get a decent make PSU? the difference can be £80 between brand names for a same supply wattage, but are they comparable to car tyres in a way they are very important and shouldnt be gotten on the cheap?

Would i be ok getting a 1000w cheapo rather than a 700w branded? surely the cheapo cant lose 300w in performance?

If your PSU blows it could take everything else with it, that's why I always get one from the recognised brand leaders Corsair, Enermax, Seasonic etc. (_;)

Purchased this card last week from scan for £138 delivered on today only. Great piece of kit!

Can you fry eggs on this one?

Wouldn't this be a better … Wouldn't this be a better buy?[url=http://overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX-103-MS]http://overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX-103-MS[/url]



the 5850 is probably ever so slightly faster.
but then u do have Overclockers to deal with should u get a problem :(!
i have also read on the Aria forums that, that particular 5850 has issues with the fan control making it quite noisy. one of the people on the Aria forums RMA'd theirs due to the fan issue!

if u can live with manually adjusting the fan regularly and overclocker's crappy service, then the 5850 may be the better buy.
although this card does have a 10 year warranty and EVGA have excellent Customer service.

if it was me, i would buy this due to the warranty, brand and retailer.

the choice is urs tho mate :)!

Cheapo in terms of PSU's could be the most expensive purchase you've ever made! Think of it like a seatbelt rather than tyres, if something goes wrong, which would you rather have? If you read into it, 1000watt cheapo's hit 1000watts once, ever and then probably give up, while good 700watts are happy running around 700-800watts. Kinetics 3 suggested retailers are excellent while I considered OCZ when I was last searching as it gets fairly good reception from most from a much more reasonable price tag.

Ok thanks for that, wont buy a cheapo one again, i just didnt know the impact they had, but i did on tyres so used that as an example, although thats not always the case! standard issue tyres on my car are over £100 each but terrible in anything other than dry tarmac.

I read up on modular ones but doubt id pay more for neater cables. just noticed my supply is max 480watt, how do i find out how much it can run continously?

Im going to wait for the GTX560 and see if prices drop. Really not sure if i should get a new graphics card, im thinking of getting a new pc when 8 cores are standard, think thats Ivy Bridge end of this year?

Lastly will PSU's connectors ever need upgrading? Like processors need another Motherboard sometimes, i think most are 24 ATX power connector?
