Summary: Bought mine in 2010 and still going strong approx 2-4 hours of gaming a day for over 5 years so far. I initially overclocked it about 15% but have since gone back to stock because some driver updates improved performance in ways that I no longer require additional performance.
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.
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.
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...
Summary: I'm upgrading from a GTX 260, which was a very good card. I never buy top of the line, so I knew a GTX 480 was out of the question. I always crunch the numbers on price / performance / power requirements / heat generation, and this card hits the sweet spot.
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.
