Card Fantastic Because..
Pros: Since i am perhaps the first to make this review, i will make it clear as possible what to know. What i did not know was that after installing the card, using EVGA Precision, it reads my card with underclocked values however the temperature inexchange was extremely low when idle (34 degrees wow). When playing a game, it reverts this underclocked settings to your normal clock rates. This way when idling, you save energy and temperature. This card overclocks like mad, i am talking i acually hit 900 mhtz core clock. Unlike the other GTX cards, the 460 acually overclocks better. Another thing people should know is that the minimum fan speed is set to 40% while maximum is 70%. Even if you set yours to 100% its really set to 70% because of nvidia's forceware. However the fan speeds are still amazingly quiet and performs very very well for the price. if i had to say how good the card is, its between the HD 5830 and 5850. And this card is cheaper lol.
Cons: The original card i had was the 9600 GT (yes i know its old) and i thought it was time to upgrade and i am glad i made the right choice. So in comparison to my 9600 GT... -The GTX 460 temperature is lower idle and max load -The GTX 460 has higher clock rates -The GTX 460 is fantastic to overclock -The GTX 460 is acually quieter Comparison to the other GTX 470 and 480, it consumes less power and releases less heat.
Overall Review: If there was anything else i had to say, its the size of the card. Its small compared to the HD radeon cards i seen and its almost exactly the same size as my old graphics card. So a midsize case is more than enough room. Just make sure you have two 6-pin power connector with minimum 450 watts of power (24 amps on +12v rail).
Pros: I bought this for a friend to play starcraft 2 on medium quality (since he always plays low with bad fps). It managed to play 40-60 fps on medium! It dont require any additional power supply so thats great!
Overall Review: His processing specs are 2.4 ghtz duel core and 4 gigs of ram. card performances great for the cost!
Pros: This is my first gaming mice and i gotta say this feels great in the hands. I am also glad it's not one of those razer mouses the generate heat on the hands so i don't sweat in long game. It feels excellent!
Cons: The sensitivity will need to get some use to cuz i never had this kind of mouse before. I learning fast however (My settings 1000hz at 1800 dpi).
Overall Review: I not sure any differences between 120hertz and 1000 hertz i dont fell anything. But it surposely respond back and forth to the computer but it doesn't feel anything different.
Pros: Pros: Great cooling (Seriously) Because of the fan dedicated for VGA cooling, graphics card is 42 degrees celius instead of 247 Cool looking case
Cons: Fans are noisy. Really noisy.
Overall Review: I wish this told what the PSU it comes with does. Cuz i first didnt know how many connectors there are
