2 out of 5 eggsStay away from this re-design

Pros: Cheap, if rebate is honored, good reviews but... see below

Cons: This card is a cheap re-design of a well reviewed card that I read about online. Sparkle recently changed the heat-sink design from nivida stock to this cheap hunk of aluminum. Result is noisy and poor cooling. Can't overclock, not even a smidgen, without crashing in games. I would return this if I hadn't already sent in my rebate.

Sparkle should apologize to all of us owners for this heat sink swap deception and send us the real heat sink to make amends.

Other Thoughts: I previously reviewed this card and stated it can overclock to 850 core 2000 mem and gave it a good rating, despite the noise level. I was incorrect. While it can complete a benchmark at this setting, I get crashing errors in real games; took me awhile to figure out it was the card causing all the problems

3 out of 5 eggsIt's ok

Pros: 1 * plays all games new and old.
1 * Nice HD quality.
1* price is decent.
3 total

Cons: It laggs in black ops and other new games.
Laggs allot, and video playback not as silky as ATI.
Too big. had to empty one PCI slot from my computer.

Other Thoughts: I'm a ATI fan and had to get Nvidia for the ATI cards won't play some old games.
My 4650 ATI played black ops smoother then this card. I even tried overclocking and the results are still the same. I hope ATI can put more time in their drivers, Good job on drivers Nvidia.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Budget Card

Pros: What is there to say? Like all 460s, it runs cool (40-50c during games) and performs great for the price. Two in SLI will give you performance that's untouched by any single card in the price range.

Cons: Stupidly loud. After doing a bit of research, it seems it's due to the cooling system they've used, which differs from Nvidia's own design. I'm sure it cools better, but I would gladly take another couple degrees if it meant nixing the noise.

Other Thoughts: If you don't care much about noise, go ahead and get this. If you do, grab another 460.

3 out of 5 eggsgood so far

Pros: works like it should and more; overclocks to 850 w/ mem 2000.

Cons: mounting bracket was bent and I had to straighten with a pliers before installing. Fan is louder than I had anticipated. Not noisey but I did do a bios mod to get it below the minimum 40% FAN speed when idle. Good now

Other Thoughts: Hope the rebate comes back...

2 out of 5 eggsWorks Well With Ubuntu; Build Quality And Service Lacking, And Imaginary Lifetime Warranty

Pros: I purchase this video card because it doesn't have a whole lot of bells & whistles as far as I can tell (eg, it's not overclocked, etc) beyond the Nvidia chipset. I wanted this because I presumed such features may get in the way of its Linux and Ubuntu compatibility. Perhaps this assumption was wrong, but regardless, with the detected drivers, Ubuntu runs this like a champ.

Cons: I don't think there is a better "lifetime" warranty after you register the product despite the product's description here on Newegg.

I registered the item through Sparkle and found no reference to the "lifetime" warranty. I also emailed their support, but in what would be par for the course for Sparkle, they have not replied.

Suspect build quality - the latch that connects the video card to the back of the computer and plastic circuit board are not at a precise 90 degree angle, so installing it put considerable strain on the motherboard, so I removed it and contacted Sparkle support through their website.

Although I received an automated email saying they would get back to me in one business day, I have not heard from Sparkle since.

Other Thoughts: I would not buy this card again (or at this point, Sparkle brand).

For this product, I feel it's a gamble - if you card happened to luck out in the factory and not have any defects, you've got a decent card - with, as far as I can tell, a three year warranty even if you register it.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Value!

Pros: -High FPS in almost every game (Starcraft 2 = maxed no prob)
-Low Temp (Runs cooler & quieter than my old XFX 9600GSO)
-AutoCad performance noticeably boosted
-"Normally" Sized (Not super long like some cards)
-Lifetime Warranty w/ registration
-Great price/peformance ratio
-Physx, Cuda, 3D, HDMI, etc
-Came with Free $50 Game

Cons: none so far!

Other Thoughts: Was previously an XFX fan, but they parted ways with Nvidia - didn't want to go with ATI, now I am a Sparkle Fan. Always go with a lifetime warranty, it will still be fast enough in 8 years to power your mom's computer

5 out of 5 eggsNice video card

Pros: Very quiet card, low power draw, overclocks nicely. Small form factor compared to the rest of the 400 series.
Great bang for the buck.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If you are into distributed computing this card overclocked to 800 core/1600 shaders does 10,000+ ppd in folding@home. Join team 33 and fold for humanity!
