Enjoy cool and quiet gaming experience, and incredible performance boost with MSI’s N460GTX Cyclone series! Adopting military class components, MSI exclusive Cyclone thermal design with a 9cm PWM fan, dual heatpipes and nickel-plated copper base which effectively decrease temperature, the N460GTX Cyclone series generates 15.7% lower noise than reference cooler at full speed to create a quiet environment.

Tailor made to hit the gamers’ sweet spot, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 delivers revolutionary levels of price/performance. With up to 4x the DirectX 11 tessellation performance of the competition, GeForce GTX 460 packs highly detailed visuals into your games - without sacrificing high frame rates. And with NVIDIA 3D Vision, PhysX, and CUDA technologies, GeForce GTX 460 powers all the incredibly realistic effects that your games can throw its way.

  • newegg Exclusive Cyclone Thermal Design MSI’s N460GTX Cyclone series is equipped with exclusive Cyclone thermal design, which uses a nickel-plated copper base and two heatpipes for heat transfer and a 9cm PWM fan to dissipate the heat quickly. Aside from effectively reducing the GPU temperature, compared to the reference cooler, the Cyclone thermal design can reduce 15.7% noise and prevent dust accumulation. The N460GTX Cyclone series maintains a balance between cooling and noise to deliver a quiet and cool platform.
  • newegg Military Class Components Except from Hi-c CAP, which is the same grade as parts used on the space shuttle and satellite with a lifespan 8 times longer than solid capacitors, MSI selects a noiseless and low-vibration Solid State Choke (SSC) on the N460GTX Cyclone series for better overclocking ability. More important, Solid Caps are used to extend the entire lifespan of products.
  • newegg MSI Afterburner Overclocking Utility MSI-exclusive Afterburner overclocking software allows you to adjust the fan speed and tune the voltage of the GPU for up to 30% enhanced overclocking capability to completely unleash its power.
  • newegg Full Microsoft DirectX 11 Support The new DirectX 11 GPU with full Shader Model 5.0, DirectCompute 11 and tessellation support delivers unparalleled levels of graphics realism and film-quality effects.

5 out of 5 eggsThe Cyclone

Pros: This video card was a good purchase for me. I bought it in 2011 and used it a lot. It still works very well. Never had driver issues. I could get about 30 fps on high settings in Arma 3.

Cons: None.

1 out of 5 eggsTerribly flaky video card

Pros: It produces an image, sometimes.

Cons: This is the second incarnation of the original video card I bought. I had to send one back to the manufacturer, and now the second one is having problems. The same problems as before. The line running through the middle of the screen. The device driver failing multiple instances and reloading itself only to fail again. I will never, and I mean NEVER buy MSI anything. I used to say that for ATI until I switched to Nvidia, now 13 years later I am willing to give them a shot again.

Other Thoughts: Regret from buying this video card is my only other thought.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsgoing 3 years strong

Pros: Have had this guy running for over 3 years solid and by some miracle it has never once blue screened on me. And up until last week never crashed either. Finally managed to crash a game when I ran into a WvW battle in Guild Wars 2 with over 100 people in it and the game just closed out. Granted those circumstances are very rare and I've been able to play any FPS with high settings just fine.

Cons: Runs hot! And that's with a more efficient cooler than a standard GTX460 layout. This could however be considered a pro if it is winter time and you are trying to save on your heating bill :D

Other Thoughts: People always mention that it's loud, but honestly my case fans and HDD's are louder. 2 of these in SLI gets about similar performance to a single 660Ti.

5 out of 5 eggsVALUE

Pros: It's really good as far as fit and performance. Doesn't require much from the power supply.

Cons: The fan is exposed. You have to be careful in cramped desktops not to leave any chords near the fan in the chance it might snag one.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: 2x DVI, 1x mini HDMI
Runs 2 monitors and a HDTV
If you don't like games it's fine, but for the rest of us...

Cons: Irritating line runs through screen on games. It's like a see-thru raised line run horizontally, it will move up and down like an old VHS tape when you were trying to get the tracking JUUUUST right. It's not impossible to ignore it, but something that just gets on my nerves.

Can't handle certain graphics in games, items will be off center or see-thru.

i7 quad core, 8gb memory, 64 gb ssd no reason for this graphics card to be the weak link, but it is for me.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: over 2 yrs old and still works great, wish i had gotten two

Cons: fan was loud from day one.

Other Thoughts: broke the fan cleaning it a year ago, modified a h70 to cool it plus vram heatsinks. haven't found anything it won't play
whole pc became 75% quieter after replacing heatsink/fan (in haf935 so there isn't much to keep you from hearing it though)

2 out of 5 eggsPoor quality and QC

Pros: -Rebate arrived within scheduled time.
-Card functioned at stock and with a mild core OC without problems for most of its life.
-Smaller form factor. Nice as it doesn't have a big casing that sits on your Southbridge heatsink.
-Temps were average or low for this chipset with the reference cooler.

Cons: I'm on my 3rd card now, and just over a year later. I RMA'd the first card, at my expense, after something fried on the board (mostly stock temps, mild OC). No visible cap bulges or other signs of distress. I contacted one of the reps I'd seen post a review here and they set me up with an RMA ticket. This was around 10 months into my 1 year warranty.
Another month later, the RMA card (which arrived with visible damage to the heatsink fins, might I add) crapped out the same way. Thankfully, they sent me a shipping label and took care of shipping both ways for the second RMA. It was all for naught as now, about 13 months later, the 3rd card has died as well. Sidenote: watch out for refurbs!

I'd been running the card on my Asus P8P67 Pro mobo. Before, between, and now after use of this MSI VGA, this same set-up has functioned with absolutely no similar issues using an EVGA GTX260, for longer periods of time.

Other Thoughts: Corsair HX 750w PSU
Asus P8P67 Pro Motherboard
2600K @ 3.8 CPU
Corsair H70 CPU Cooler
3x4GB Gskill @ 1600 Memory
128GB Crucial c300 Primary Drive
1TB WD Black Secondary Drive
