Be careful, product is a 460 V2
This review is from: GIGABYTE GV-N460OC-1GI GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
Pros: Heatsink is huge, cooling seems to keep card about 10 degrees cooler than my reference 460. Out of the box overclock is pretty neck and neck with the heavy OC I run on my reference card. Card is built rock solid and seem to run fine in Battlefield 4 with High settings and no MSAA or SSAO. Rating is for poor product specifications probably Nvidia's fault more than newegg's. Card was literally factory fresh when I took it out of box would never know it was a refurb so thats a plus.
Cons: Card is listed as a GTX 460 in the specifications. It should be clarified that at some point Nvidia redid the card into a v2 with a smaller memory bus and it is NOT sli compatible with the previous 460. There is no indication anywhere in the product page or packaging to indicate GPU is a v2. Had to let Nvidia control panel tell me that AFTER purchasing. I was hopeful since it seems this particular card brought the mem bus back up to 256 like the original but the fact remains that these cards are incompatible. Thought I'd found a great deal to squeeze some more time out of my setup but wound up with a pointless upgrade.
Other Thoughts: Hope the return/exchange process makes up for this let down
