Summary: I purchase this graphics card to a friend. He was looking for a good Auction between $40 - 70. For the price it flyes. Excellent video card for the buck... my friend is very happy with it. The perfomance is between the gtx 550ti and gtx 560... or similiar to the gtx 650ti.
This may not be the best GTX 460 out there, but it is a definite contender.

Summary: Great GTX 460 option. Palit's custom PCB may irk some as it is not "aftermarket friendly", but it makes for a shorter card and the custom cooler allows for great temps. The overclocking abilities are also impressive for a V1 GTX 460. Was able to hit 900MHz w/ a mild voltage increase no problem. Extremely impressed with this card all-around.
Summary: I purchased mainly to increase my frame rates when running Flight Simulator software. When configuring for take off or landing, when there is a big load on graphics rates, I went from 4-5-6 fps to a nice 15-16-17. Most other times I'm well above 25-30 fps. Have not over clocked. Temperatures run about 115 F normal load to 140 F when really working. Fan speed has never been to 100%. I like this card & the performance I get from it.
Amazing customer service, product lifespan not great for me, but the warranty is solid!

Summary: I'm currently awaiting a response from Palit after I made a warranty claim on two 12-month old GTX 460 cards. They both crapped out in that time frame. No over-clocking. Not even a lot of demand on them. EDIT: Palit got back to me within 4 days. Took awesome care of me. Otherwise, the products work amazingly... while they work.
Summary: As part of a rebuild of my previous PC which eventually turned into a "new build" PC I bought one of these and apart from the HAF 932 case it has been the best thing I have bought.I previously used 2 x 6800GT's and 2 x 8800GT's in SLI mode.Although the 6800GT's were very pretty they produced a LOT of heat, so the heat pipes were almost too hot to touch, and all the heat was dumped inside the case.
Good graphics cards for current gen, but next gen it will not be suitable

Summary: This graphics card can play both Crysis 2 and Far Cry 3 on high settings (around 30-40FPS on Far Cry 3). I am sure I was able to play Crysis 2 on ultra settings actually, but I am not 100% sure so that is why I didn't initially state this. I've only recently upgraded to a GTX 770 after about 2 and a half years, and I can therefore conclude that the 460 had served me well and it did the jobs I needed very well.
Summary: I build my entire gaming rig and waited for this card to come out because Nvidia promised to offer it for a good price. Glad i waited as it offered the best performance/£ by a mile on cards around this spec. You get different versions of this card. This one has a very quiet fan even when running flat out. All other cards I've had have been far noisier. Note that although this card has 4 outputs, it will only support 2 monitors at a time.
Summary: This GPU is truly the most contrary component I have ever come across... Of course, during the period where the guarantee was still in check, it was great. The driver sometimes crashed, but all in all, decent hardware. Only recently have I opened up my PC case to find a whole BUNCH of the fan blades scattered around the chassis... I am quite annoyed... I didn't exactly challenge the GPU (all I really do is play modded GTA...
