With the GTX460 being the sensible choice of the Fermi range, we had to take a look at the performance of a pair, courtesy of EVGA.

EVGA? *swoons* don't tell me they finally let OC3D give their products some love?

*reads* cheers fellas !

Ahh, brilliant as always

I actually rather like the look of those cards too (eats some humble pie) as the stickers on them are quite tasteful and not overdone and gaudy.

Will stick with my 5770s (and hopefully soon AMD's 9800GTX for Physx) but if these had come sooner (7 months sooner) I would have had no qualms about grabbing a pair (ooer).

Thanks again for the reviews lads, Stepster will be very pleased. He can gloat even more on MSN now

I have a pair of 470's on the way I would like to upload my 3D Mark 06 and VAntage scores when I get my new hardware.

Steve. They may well get double your vantage scores but tbh mate you'd see very little difference in games. I had a 280 and it was smooth as silk in gaming. I never played a game that I couldn't max and even worry it. Just a shame it was so bloody hot

Very interested in seeing the results for a pair of 470s though !

I agree my GTX280 is fair warm. Even with the improved cooling I done to my case which no longer holds heat and the 140MM fan blowing on my GTX280 it is 80C with 100% fan.

The 470's will be even hotter though and a lot louder lol.I will need to get sound dampening foam for my case to absorb some of that fan noise until I can afford better coolers for the GPU's. The reason for my upgrade is newer games are starting to push my GTX280 now and the motherboard , CPU and ram upgrade is for the video conversions etc.

Then you have both completely missed the point of this review tbh.

480 = nuclear hot & fudging loud

470 = nuclear hot & fudging loud

460 = cool calm and collected.....

cool video

I've been looking at the GTX 460 but am holding out for now as there aren't really any games I've got into that require that sort of power (I mostly play cs:s on my 8800gts)

I know a guy who just got a 5850 who has been telling me it owns the GTX460

I have been looking around for waterblocks for the 460 and looking at the stock coolers the RAM doesn't seem to be actively cooled so would guess you could get away with a non fullcover block and some heatsinks on the RAM?

5850 does win at stock clocks for both cards but look at the price difference.......

Overclock the 460 and is will walk all over the 5850.

Unless you have 5870 money the 460 is the card to have tbh.
