Summary: I have had this video card for about 1 year and 1 month now. I had it half the time in one gaming computer and half the time in another gaming computer. Truth be told, this is a fine video card. One of my major measures is how quiet and how cool it runs, and it does both very well. More importantly for gamers however is how well it runs the games.
Summary: Bought this to replace an aging HD4890 and didn't have alot of money to work with right after the holiday season. I was expecting a little improvement and to at least be able to use some DX11 features I had never seen before. I was blown away by this little card. My 4890 was no slouch, even with most titles on high (skyrim for example), but this card added almost half again to the frame rate of everything I have thrown at it so far from Skyrim to BF3 to Saints Row the...
Summary: I got this card to add to one of my rigs for SLI and also to watercool it, the product at the time I bought it was marked REFERENCE, which means it is exactly!!! to original specs. It was not as they started to use cheaper PCB's and also changed the placement of the CAPS which made it not Reference.
Summary: they do not offer much for instructions. (not much needed) Get driver update from internet. I use two of em, SLI and love it, great for online games, great for Autocad and movie editing. HDMI hookup is new to me and I really like it.
Summary: I was using a bad onboard graphics card before. I bought this, and now I can play Battlefield Bad Company 2 with Ultra quality as well as StarCraft 2. I did have a few problems after boot screen would go black, solution, press the sleep key on keyboard) I figured that was A PSU sense I am using a Ultra LSP 650. Going to buy a 650 Corsair one soon. Must buy! Great Support. Highly recommend!
Summary: Just recently got rid of my 8800 GT for this card, and let me say this card is amazing. Definitely great for this price, especially if you get it before the rebates up and only have to pay 120. I would suggest this card to anyone who wants to play practically any game that's out right now on high/very high settings but doesn't want to pay an arm and a leg.
for 200 bucks the best performance you can ever get.

Summary: so i upgraded from gts 250 to gtx 460 and wow huge difference. i first noticed people saying its a loud graphics card. well to me i think its extremely quiet maybe since i have a cooling gamer case but still its not loud enough where it annoys me. performance is one of the best thing ever for the price. i first of started playing bad company 2 and the fps runs around 65 to 70 fps with max graphics, hbao on and 2x anti aliasing.
Summary: I purchased this graphics card for 205$ with tax and i upgraded to it from a zotac ddr5 nvidia geforce 240 and let me say the difference is noticable and this card stays quiter and cooler than my old one and in terms of the overall graphics performance this card compares to the higher end models that are more expensive, but don't expect it to be better than a nvidia gtx580 for example.
