MSI GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) DirectX 11 N460GTX CYCLONE 1GD5/OC 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Great upgrade from an 8800gtx (660/1560/900 oc). Runs very cool 27-58C in gaming (fallout new vegas, crysis, dragon age, bioshock)

Cons: None, not a con but just read the details, these are sli only (no 3-way).

Other Thoughts: I love the card. Its a great value. Nvidia drivers usually very stable. SLI scales much better than the old 8800gtx days. Runs cool; cant really tell if its quiet because its next to a 2600rpm San Ace 120x38mm pushing ~100cfm through my cpu heatsink, lol.

5 out of 5 eggs Gigabyte my savior 10/21/2010

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-EP43-UD3L LGA 775 Intel P43 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Great motherboard for 775socket, DDR2, and single gpu; use all my old components. North bridge ran nice a cool with prime95 and Q6600 @ 3.0ghz.
With this board, Windows XP 32-bit recognizes 3.5gb/4.0gb ram (better than old 3.0gb, i guess)

Cons: No north bridge fan for piece of mind with overclocking.
Ram slots are close to cpu slot, if you want to use all four dimms make sure your aftermarket cooler doesn't get in the way. I'm using a Thermalright u-120e copper + San Ace 120x38mm fan and Dimm1 and Dimm2 are not accessable

Other Thoughts: This board replaced my first overclocking victim, MSI P6N SLi Platium. I stated before I wish there was a north bridge fan but, i have not had a problem (just warm to the touch without a fan @ 3.0Ghz).
Added an Antec fan to the north bridge for 3.6Ghz.
No problems, and loving it.

Q6600 revG0 @ 3.6Ghz 1.32V
Corsair 2x2GB CM2X2048-8500C5D @ 1000mhz 2.1V
MSI gtx460 1GD5 @ stock
Corsair 1000HX (overkill)

CORSAIR HX Series CMPSU-1000HX 1000W ATX12V 2.2 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply

Pros: Works great voltages look good in HW Monitor; no problems

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: this replaced my 3-yr old Rosewill ~900W; the Rosewill died the minute I tried to overclock my Q6600, P6N SLI PLATIUM, 8800 GTX
