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.
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.
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: After doing lots of game testing and testing OC performance, I have concluded that this card is better than my Radeon HD 5870 with a lot of games (especially PhysX heavy games). DiRT 2 and Metro 2033 look very nice and I've been hooked on Arkham Asylum again since I've seen what PhysX does on high settings.
Summary: Having owned a previous Nvidea card, and wanting something a little more potent to play Skyrim, I opted for this card. The Good: The card, coupled with the latest Nvidea drivers offers excellent support for most modern games at a very reasonable price. The Bad: Wow, is this one noisy card. I could not believe how much noise it made, it is like a Harrier trying to take off!
Summary: I ordered the Palit Sonic PLATINUM GTX 460 (NE5X460HF1102) but I received the Palit Sonic GTX 460 (NE5XSF1102) This shipment also arrived 4 weeks later than the expected delivery date, but there were snow storms. So in short, I'm returning this product, and getting a GTX 560 from new egg. (it was released after I ordered this one.
