5 out of 5 eggsUpdate

Pros: This is an update, I upgraded my pc to a amd fx-6100 processor and an gtx 560 ti and the 560 ti was barely an improvement at all and it ran stupid hot! This gtx 460 is a great card, going from intel pentium g860 to amd fx 6100 was huge improvement went from 18-25 fps in gta 4 to 28-60 fps with this card oc 775mhz core... selling the 560 ti and keeping this till I can get a 660 or better...

Cons: none i can think of

5 out of 5 eggsExcelent Gaming Card!!

Pros: This thing is great, uses more power than newer tech but that is to be expected. This thing Runs GTA 4 at 1680x1050 at mid settings with a low of 18fps but average 25+, not that great but that game was not very well optimized, Runs Borderlands 2 on HIGH with physx at 30-80 fps, COD 4 High at 130+ fps, Grid 2 on Medium High at 35+ fps and all this with just a cheepo intel celeron 1155 dual core processor at 2.4ghz,,,,

Cons: None, it is great

Other Thoughts: Great buying used off of E..........Bay for anywhere from $40 to $75

5 out of 5 eggs2Yrs with 2xSLI Setup - Strong

Pros: These cards (have 2 in SLI) run cool (32C idle -> 60C under load) and can deal with anything I throw at them. Also nice & QUIET. I'm more of a BlackOps2, CivilizationV, FarCry gamer, and haven't pushed them with more GPU intense games like Crysis, etc. IMHO no newer GTX has been a big enough leap ahead to upgrade until maybe the latest GTX 700 Series cards coming out now.

Cons: Fan speed is tolerable, but noticeably louder at higher temps (I use MSI Afterburner software to regulate fan speed for optimal cooling). So, consider that if you're willing to tolerate higher temps, the fans will run slower & quieter..

Other Thoughts: I moved to two of these GTX460's in SLI from a single HD 4870 that was very loud (like a leaf blower) and h-o-t (80-90C with same games mentioned above).
Your CASE makes a difference - I run a CoolerMaster Cosmos 1000 (massive) that has 6 - 120mm fans strategically located for good cross ventilation (2-bottom, 2-top, 1-front, 1-rear), and I run a water cooled CPU. It's not silent, but just purrs along. With the old HD4870, I had to use headphones to keep from going deaf/crazy LOL.

5 out of 5 eggsAsus, you've done good.

Pros: It was cheap when I bought it.

It still runs modern games at medium-high settings.

It looks gorgeous.

Cons: Still hasn't turned into a robot friend.

Other Thoughts: I was no means rich, and i'm definitely not rich today, but this little card is a heavy hauler when it comes to the field of budget GPU's.

If someone has one for sale, especially the 1gb model, get it, get it as fast as you can. You'd be doing yourself a budget PC dis-service by not buying that card.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat graphics card!

Pros: >Runs very cool. 55c under load, 30-35c while idling. And that's with a minor overclocked, too (825/1650/2000).
>Good performance in games. I can max out majority of games no problem 40FPS+. Older games 60+ no problem.
>Great price.

Cons: >Some of the included software is buggy. The ASUS Gamer OSD was apparently causing severe lag for World of Warcraft & Skyrim. (Stuttering @ ~10FPS). Blizz forums directed me to uninstall Gamer OSD and the lag disappeared.
>Can't max out more intensive games like Metro 2033, and Battlefield 3. But that's not much of a con though. This is a last gen card, after all.

Other Thoughts: System Specs: Q9300 @ 3.375Ghz, ASUS P5N-D, XMS2 4gb DDR2 800mhz, OCZ ZS 750w

1 out of 5 eggsWorked ok until the update

Pros: worked very well before the driver update

Cons: after the driver update failed midway through the card would never work again. I uninstalled the drivers, and even did a clean install of windows to no avail. I managed to lose my warranty info for this thing.
Card died after the first month.

5 out of 5 eggsIncredible card

Pros: Easy install, drivers were a snap. Big card but I knew that when I bought it and it is in a full tower so no worries. Card runs quiet and cool. I have watched a live stream baseball game on one monitor and a movie on another at the same time. No lag, no ghosting...perfect!
The games that I play are easily handled on high settings.

Cons: Ummmmm...would love another to run in SLi mode but they are not currently available.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat GPU! Great Price

Pros: I got this card to upgrade my rig, I have loved it ever since, great graphics for all the games I play, plus it looks bad%#!. This card pushed me to learn more about PCs and custom building. It's a great product from a great place to buy and learn everything you need!

Cons: A bit large for my case, but that wasnt the GPUs fault as it was for a prebuilt PC. Looks like I know what my next Newegg purchase will be!!!

Pros: I have two in SLI config. They run cool, only sometimes getting to 58 and 59 C running battle field 3 with ultra/high settings. I do have a 120mm intake side panel fan on them though, which helps a lot more than i thought it would nearly 15C difference with it.

Cons: I wish it was free
