MSI GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card N460GTX CYCLONE 1GD5/OC

Pros: Like several reviewers I upgraded from an 8800GT and of course the performance difference is huge. Sound levels are also down significantly compared to the 8800GT. Whereas the latter produced a high pitched continuous whine under load that could be heard throughout the floor, all I can hear from this card is the low whoosh of the fan if I'm close enough to the pc. Furthermore the whoosh is only audible due to the top blowhole on my P182 since the sound completely vanishes if I cover it up, so your experience may vary depending on your case. Highly satisfied with this purchase so far.

Cons: None yet.

Overall Review: I couldn't find any mention of this in the product description but it comes with two PEG adapters and not one as seems to be implied on the MSI site. As you may have noticed from official reviews, the card requires two power connectors.
