Summary: This has worked well for not only display function, but for accelerating video conversions. It works with "DVD Fab" and "MCE Buddy" quite seamlessly. External exhaust cooling keeps the heat out of the case better - a nice design feature that I specifically wanted.
Summary: Works in SLI with a BFG version of the same card. This card is worth it's price, however one alone wasn't able to get me the results I wanted with high quality games like BF3, Far Cry 3 etc. They perform very well in SLI.
Overclocks Like a Champ, But Better Value Can Be Had

Summary: I purchased this last summer, so this is a long-term review for any doubters out there. This is a great value graphics card, one of the best on the Nvidia side of things. First off, this is a GTX 460 SE, which I did not know at the time. The SE suffix basically means this is a slightly nerfed GTX 460. It has a few shader cores disabled I believe, as well as slightly slower clocks. I have seen it benchmarked about 7-8% slower than a standard GTX 460.
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... So as most can see, getting this card is getting harder, when i went to purchase, "Amazon" was sold out and so were the other companies like "New egg ect ect..".
Best card for the price out there hands down at the moment.

Summary: The Nvidia GTX 460 is a great entry level DirectX-11 video card that will play the majority of games on maxed out settings @ 1080p resolution. Using only 1 in my system, I can run Battlefield 3 with all settings on High and have a very smooth gameplay, no graphic lag yet. Using 2 of these cards in SLI will give you power processing that compares to the GTX570, while costing much less, and will allow max settings, max resolution, and full tesselation, on all games...
Summary: A solid bargain card that performs well and will actually reduce your overall thermal load of your rig. I have not had good luck overclocking though as it tends to get a little shakey if you push it.
