Now we all know that the verdict is out on the GTX 460 exceptional value, great overclocker the list goes on. Now I was dead set in the planning stages of project Black Fusion that it would be an ASUS 5870 ROG Matrix in my Crosshair IV Extreme.
As the days turned into weeks and weeks turned into months I was/am still waiting for Asus to release the board. The Matrix is now available available and while I refuse to buy one without the other so for now I wait.
I am an Avid folder for team NCIX on account of my Aunt who is battling breast cancer and my grandmother whose Parkinsons is getting worse by the day.
I felt my 1090T just wasn't enough folding power so when this limited edition all Copper beauty came into stock I ordered it straight away.
Now most of you are probably wondering why on earth would I buy a 465 to fold with and eventually use for Physx when I might be better off with 460 SLI or even a 470.
For $374 CDN shipped this card included Metro 2033 Just Cause 2 and another voucher from MSI to choose 1 of 3 different titles to download total value $140 in games included. It also came pre unlocked and flashed to a GTX 470 with 1280MB hidden under a massive all copper cooler with twin 80mm fans running much cooler than a stock 470. This limited edition graphics card is not only an exceptional value but is absolutely gorgeous and one hell of a folding powerhouse I am looking forward to getting some overclocking done once I'm all settled into my new pad. At which time I will include Photos and Benchmarks.
In closing it's almost a shame to hide it inside a case much like the ARES they both scream Look at me look at me like a teenage girl at a Justin Beiber Concert.
