It may be Fermi, but it is still decent
17 June 2015
Summary: If you need a cheap card, you have a decent enough power supply, and you don't mind how power inefficient or hot Fermi gets, this may work for you.
Pros: I've had this card for almost 5 years now. It still holds up pretty strong and is comparable in performance to a GTX 750 today. The 1 GB of VRAM has not set me back too much as long as I keep the resolution down.
Cons: The stock fan is fairly loud. In hindsight I wish I got one with an aftermarket cooler. The card is also not that great with power efficiency, especially at idle. I kind of wonder if getting a Radeon HD 6850 would have been better the choice back in 2010.
Summary: > This really was a great card for the price that I had paid for it (roughly 80 bucks or so) and I will always recommend EVGA as a brand. They make parts that have a decent life span and work fantastically under pressure.
Pros: > An amazing card for the price that I paid for it. I HUGE upgrade from the 9800GT > For the time that it was healthy it stayed strong and performed very, very well under pressure. And it kept up with my older parts very nicely (4GB of DDR2 and a 2.4ghz cpu) > I always try and recommend the stren...
Cons: > The card seriously starts to show its age after about a year and a half. It's been giving constant VGA errors and drive-crashing. I have to look into an upgrade now (which is about standard is the card is sitting at about two years old now) to replace it, but that's fine
Pros: For what I paid for this, I am still impressed with its performance to this date. I am not maxed out like I would be with the newer cards, but for my level of gaming it is perfect. I can usually average 45+ on any game on max settings still.
Cons: Quickly outdated. I feel like an old person saying this, but video cards use to last a lot longer before a new line came out.
Summary: I won't personally buy any other brand name other than EVGA. Their prices and performance are excellent and their support is top notch and worth every penny spent above the cheapest cards you can buy in each category.
Pros: Great looking, not too loud even at 70% fan where I kept it. Performed well at most current gen games @ High settings, not Ultra @ 1920x1080. I ran 2 of these in SLI and they performed very well together. Scaling was excellent.
Cons: I've had to RMA both these cards at least once. One of them twice. They are OC'd from the factory and I think you pay a cost against the longevity of the card. However EVGA support is phenomenal and has replaced them every time without giving me grief.
Summary: System: Intel 975 XBX2 mboard Intel Q6700 (2) wd 500gb black label drives in raid 1 Antec Sonta case PC Power & Cooling 750w PS Asus Blu-ray Asus DVD/CD burner 8 gigs mushkin ddr2800
Pros: This graphic card is awsome. Playing Call of Duty & WOW at Max settings. Have played with overclocking just see to how it would handle it. Overclocked it to 800/1600 GPU/CPU clock with evga precision and did not have any problems. Now running at standard settings. Unlimited warranty on this model...
Cons: A this time I'm a little disapointed, the card has been dropped. Was wanting to get another one to go Sli. (Shame on you EVGA, I've only owned it for about 10 months). Looking at the 560 cards now.
PLEASE READ BEFORE PURCHASE!! IMPORTANT INFORMATION!!!!

Summary: I wanted to combine this card with my current to do SLI. For those that dont know what SLI is. Scalable Link Interface (SLI) Allows you to use two cards at once with a link cable, giving you double the performance or meant to increase the processing power available for graphics. Anyway...
Pros: Runs great,easy install, silent, It runs everything iv played so far at max settings. Only problem iv had is steam doesn't recognize the card and wants to bother you about it along with a few other games the same but they still run on max settings.
Cons: Most things don't recognize the card but they still play just fine.
Summary: If you plan to do SLI with this card, make sure the other is another GTX 460 SE. One cannot do SLI with a 460 SE and a 460. In my opinion, however, it is a much better idea to pay a bit more and get a standard 460.
Pros: The EVGA GTX 460 SE is a good video card for the price. The performance is more than one would expect. The card overclocks very well (I got to 850 core clock, 1700 for shader and memory) with the EVGA's free precision utility.
Cons: The shader cores on this card are lacking (it being an SE). One would be advised to skip a 460 SE and go for a 460.
