Is the Nvidia GTX 460 still a solid card or should I go ahead and buy a better one? If I should, what would be the best one to get for the price? Only interested in Nvidia since I've had nothing but trouble with AMD in the past
i had a gtx 460 but i changed and notice a big diference , im using the gtx 560 and no problems at all but if you want to wait for the 600 series is just a matter of time until they arrive to the market
Yea, still a decent card if you're on a budget, otherwise save your money and get a 600 series video card.
Good suggestion, I feel temptive to SLI my 470, if there's a second hand on sale at the lowest ever $. :D
yea that kinda reminds me, which would be better? A 560 or two 460s in sli?
Two 460s in SLI but it wouldn't be worth buying two at this point.
I already have one....
In that case, another 460 would be the better and cheaper option.
how i see it is the 460 is like what the 8800 gt was a fe years ago cheep but a all round good card if your thinking to upgrade then a 560 ti would be great but if you can hold out the new 600 or 700 series cards will be out soon i think but you could pick up a cheep used 460 on ebay if you want to use sli, just bear in mind not all programs/games likes sli make sure you get one that is the same size layout tho and same amount of memory as the one you currently have
That would mean I would have to find a PALiT 768MB
but I thought memory didn't matter as long as it's the same brand and chipset?
the memory and the brand dont care the only thing that counts is the GPU processor you can get sli with a 768mb and 1 GB memomory like i said i had 2 a gigabyte 768 MB and an xfx 1gb in sli same processor diferent brands and amount of memory
benchmarks suggest that the gtx 460 isn't a bad card at all. if I had gotten a motherboard with SLI support to begin with when I started my first custom PC piece by piece, then I probably would've got two of those 460's instead of the gtx 480, before that I had a Radeon HD5850 at the time I didn't think I'd need the extra performance seeing as I only run games on a single monitor. I even ended up replacing a PSU out of caution when I saw negative reviews about the OCZ PSU I previously used, but I learned my lesson. I still did pretty good on my first attempt considering I didn't manage to permanently damage my computer. lol
I'd highly recommend you wait for the 600 series cards first. just in case they bring out a card in your price range that's undeniably better. :)
I'd hold out for a better single card solution. SLI doesn't work with every single game (not that it's *needed* for every game, either, but you get the idea) but a single card solution will. Your 460 should get you by for another month or two til the 600's come out. It's not a "weak" card by any stretch.
I wouldn't buy another 460 if I were you. It's still a good card, but I recommend a higher end single card solution as opposed to SLI. I would wait until you can afford a high end 600 series card.
Personally, I'm not going to upgrade from my 460 any time soon. Although I don't play that many newer games.
Or in my case I've had two 460's running at 800 in SLI for a while, any single cards out there that would blow these out of the water?
