Pros: Very fast, good cooling, quiet. I bought this to replace an aging 8800 GTS 512mb.
Cons: I am having severe sound problems after installing the card. If I start a game and alt/tab or if I'm listening to music in the backgroun, or even using Teamspeak, there is a scratching/stuttering sound during loud noises. This effects the overall system and even causes massive drops in FPS. I've reinstalled the video drivers, uninstalled the HD drivers for the card, and reinstalled my audio drivers twice. I'm using an older Audigy 2 sound card.
Other Thoughts: I've read online that people are sometimes having issues with sound cards and the 460 GTX. I'm going to attempt to disable CUDA as well as the HD audio on the card to see if this solves the problem. I might even try and remove the sound card and use the onboard to see if it solves the problem. I would really hate to RMA this card, especially since I've had two other eVGA cards (7950 GT SC and the 8800 GTS 512mb) and they've worked flawlessly. I purposely didn't buy the radeon 6870 due to driver issues I've seen first hand with friends, but I never expected to encounter sound issues with this card.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Better card than my Audigy 2?
Other Thoughts: Tried all 3 sets of drivers (included, and both on the website) with XP Pro 64-bit and all produced BOSD. While the card was in my mobo also decided to stop recognizing my 8800 GTS. Creative really needs to develop better drivers, 64-bit computing is the future and they can't even figure out how to program in 64-bit yet!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Usually very reliable.
Cons: This was my third purchase from GeIL and unfortunately my first DOA set. Needless to stay I won't be buying from them anymore.READ FULL REVIEW
