Summary: I bought an EVGA GTX 460 SC in early 2011 for a new computer I built for gaming. At the time it was around the $250 price point, which is where you will find most 60 series NVIDA cards. For the Price:Performance ratio, it was right on the money, and allowed me play all of the new games of that time on max settings. Fast forward to 2014. I am still running that same GTX 460 for games like, Tera Rising, Battlefield 4, and Titanfall.
Summary: Upgraded from the 9800 GT using a 6400+ processer and total computer performance slowed down. Replaced the CPU with a 945 and now it's much better. I seem to be having a slight issue with skinny horizontal lines flashing across the screen every once in a while though... weird.
Summary: Not bad... I do sometimes see artifacts during boot with Windows 7 and every now and then the screen goes black then returns to normals with a "driver" error message in windows 7. I do look forward to an upgrade soon...

Summary: Great card once I got it to work. Installed into a Win-Xp machine and caused all kinds of issues, but I don't blame the hardware. The drivers were the issue. Replacing a blown card meant that I couldn't properly uninstall the previous card before installing this one. Turned out that's really important. :| After a few hours of playing install - uninstall, we had it running and nicely ever since.
Summary: forget using the HDMI out duel screen as it will fail the Sony DMI (digital rights management) even playing your own recorded HD however I thing I got a defective card as every so often I crash hard due to nva_4 error even though I formatted the drive and has the new drivers by the way forget the rebate as they reneged on it
Summary: Afraid I have to agree with those who say this card is loud. Not INCREDIBLY loud, but quite noticeable. I noticed it the second I powered my machine on after installing the card, it sounds like a miniature vacuum cleaner in my case. It is easily the loudest component in my system, and that's when the card is idle and the fan is at the lowest setting (around 35% fan speed). Fortunately in the few games I have played it didn't really get any louder than it is when idle.
Summary: Great performance, but the External Exhaust version of this card is very loud. Coming from a EVGA 9800+ that is practically inaudible at idle and barely audible when gaming this card was not what i was looking for. Upon first boot i could already hear the fan even in a closed case it was too loud. Even customizing the fan profiles under EVGA Precision setting the fan to run at 33% load caused the card to overheat. There was no way i could avoid the fan noise.
