Without any doubt, Nvidia's GTX 460 768MB graphics card is the is clearly the card to get. Priced at just $200, it is offering a performance directly comparable - or even greater - than what you should expect from an ATI Radeon 5830, while it consumes low power. Compared to other Nvidia's solutions, the GTX 460 768MB is slightly slower than the GTX 465/470 in specific games, although in some cases you will see no differences at all.
The card has been designed for overclockers and as such, it will allow you to experiment with its clocks and get some actual performance gain even without voltage tuning. Of course, overclocking is game dependant and here comes the only "weakness" of the low-end version of the GTX 460: its 768MB of memory. It is obvious that NVIDIA's 1GB version of the GTX 460, with more RAM, more L2 cache, and more ROPs would cost you just $30 more. And game such as Crysis and Stalker would benefit from that additional memory capacity of the GTX 460.
Of course, enthusiasts could further enjoy the power of a GTX 460 SLI configuration and further enhance their gaming experience under 16xAA+ anti-aliasing.
Inno3D's GTX 460 768MB series is also future-proof with support for 3D Gaming and an HDMI v1.40 output onboard.
Overall, the Inno3D GTX 460 768MB performed very well in all our gaming tests, it can challenge higher- rated graphics cards, it offers great overclocking abilities, cool running and most importantly, it is well priced. A highly suggested product for everyone.
