Summary: Running two of these in SLI right now. Bought the first one off of Newegg brand new, and the second one 2 years later in very good condition. Absolutely adore this card. It's somewhat of an underdog, but for the price (at the time, and even now if you can get your hands on it) is incredible for it's performance. SLI mode is an absolute dream come true. Won't need to upgrade to any top of the line graphics cards any time soon.
Summary: These video cards work fine for the basic build that I did last year. I was on a budget when I built this machine and I was surprised at the performance these two cards gave me once the machine was built. I was going to order some better rated cards for the machine but these was go enough so they are still up and running.
Summary: Pros. Stays very cool. Can OC a LOT without issues. Stable (no games crash, etc) Cons. The fan gets really loud when it gets above 50% speed Not efficient as newer models It's a good, reliable card and great for price.
Summary: Bought this card used for $126 or so. Great card ever since i've had it. Can play alot of games on high-max settings. The card runs super cool due to the heatsink/fan design, asus nailed it on this. The card looks awesome as well. If you can find this card for the right price, you can't go wrong.
Summary: I recently purchased this card for SLI with a Gigabyte card I already have. So far the card has been great. It gets a little noisy under a load, but nothing more than any other single fan card on the market. Also the temps stay nice and low which is great. In case you were wondering SLI 460s are great for Battlefield 3! In comparison to my Gigabyte Super Overclock Series it is definitely louder under load.
Summary: This video card is beastly to say the least. Easy hardware and software installation. This is probably the BEST video card for it's price range. "Best bang for the buck". This model is a 768MB which is all you really need for any monitor 22inches and below. For any monitor with a bigger resolution, 1GB would be better... Although that doesn't really apply anymore cause I believe you can only get the 1GB now.
