Summary: It plays games flawlessly. My only issues is the drivers keep failing. This is most likely due to the used, dusty condition in which I got the card and in no way should affect your decision to get this card. I have had no problems playing many games like Far Cry 4, BO2 @125 FPS, Sleeping Dogs with HD effects on, The Sabatuer, Payday 2 or any other games I have.
Summary: A friend turned me on to this card because of how much they go for used and the fact they are pretty tuff cards. So far it has been able to handle everything I have tried with no problems and I have been doing my best to push it just to see up to what exactly its capable of. NOTE: I have been told by a reliable source it is best to use one of the older drivers because the newer driver makes it run slower as if the company released it to make people want to buy a newer...
Summary: I love this card. I originally built my computer to run this card, but ran out of funds halfway (broke college kid at the time). It's not the best on the market, but it can run most games on high settings. It chunks out an even 70 fps on Minecraft with over 200 mods and Sonic Ether's Unbelievable Shaders installed. This was while playing minecraft 1.5. Alas, I have noticed a lot of glitches while playing that I can only attribute to my processor overheating.
Summary: I bought this card just over 2 years ago, and was relatively happy with it. It handled just about any game I threw at it, and never seemed to tear or glitch. However, It met a violent end yesterday. I turned on my computer and the card caught on fire. Not that the card burned out and stopped working; there was literally fire coming out of this device. It took out my mobo and several of my cables with it.
A good card but dated. If you can get it cheap, you should be happy.

Summary: This card was great two years ago. It runs most of games well at high to max settings on a 1920x1080 display. However since at this moment there are many new cards available at around $150 which is faster than this card, the price is a very important point if you get this card now. This version of gtx 460 card has more cuda cores than other versions. Therefore this card performs better than most of other gtx 460s.
Summary: The 460 is a great card, even if it's discontinued. As far as obsolete cards go, this one is trusty and packs a good enough punch to satisfy all but the most obsessive (and wealthy) PC gamers. However, there's a funny thing about the GTX 460, in that there are two different gpu builds that share the same name. One is the GTX 460, and the other is the GTX 460v2.
