    Question Should I get the Gigabyte GTX 460

    Some say that the [URL="http://www.ebuyer.com/product/232853"]Gigabyte GTX 460[/URL] is a great card. But a few people that I know think that I shouldn't buy it.

    Anyone here own the card? If so could you leave your thoughts on the card, is it worth £140 or should I get another card?

    I have the same model, it's excellent and I paid £40 more. Depends on what card you have now to whether it's worth upgrading, and I haven't looked at ATI's new cards.

    I ordered mine direct from eVGA, but Gigabyte's pretty good, so I think you'll be fine.

    I got 2 eVGA 460 SC for $60 each during Black Friday and I have to say they are great. My friend has the Gigabyte one and he said its good quality. Its the sort of performance you will get with the HD 5750 so for the price, this is an awesome card. If you are going get another card, you should get something more expensive such as the Hd 5870 or such.

    I have a 5770 as well and its good, but I feel that for the price, the 460 is better because of similar performance for cheaper.

    I own a Gigabyte GTX 460 and it's an awesome card. I paid £180 for mine and I'm very pleased with it. I've never known a modern graphics card that's so quiet and so powerful at the same time.
