Absolutely great card.

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.
Summary: I have used both brands: nvidia and Ati (now AMD), even way back to 3Dfx. They are good brands with their respective features, but went for this card as it is a great value for the performance, nvidia drivers tend to be a bit more reliable and released more often to correct performance issues with new games.
Summary: The card arrived and worked great! 1 minor MINOR quibble, the model of the one I received did not look like the picture, but thats OK because the actual card itself looks way more sleek! Great seller!
Doesn't matter how good the card is if it's not supported...

Summary: The problem with Nvidia cards isn't the hardware -- it's the drivers. When the cards work, they work well. But Nvidia only supports its latest and highest-end cards. The drivers released for other cards, including the GTX 460, do not play will with Windows 7 and will lead to constant crashes, kernel mode failures, and a glitchy appearance. Don't bother rolling back to older drivers or trying to update to newer ones.
