Gainward has done quite well!!!

Pros: Price, performance, Non reference PCB

Cons: VRAM, stock cooling, VRM cooling, only SLI

I have two of those in my sig rig running on 1080p monitor. These little cards are fantastic, non reference PCB which allows for water-cooling blocks to be attached, which in turn allows for higher overclocks. They're also quite cheap and the stock cooler is quite poor, there isn't any VRM cooling and that certainly does not help temperature's, however as I mentioned before, if you're looking at a non reference GTX460 to watercool then this is a great contender. The max overclock I could get out of both in SLI was 970/1940/2150 with 1.137v: Pretty impressive considering that it performs much better than a GTX 580. You can check this thread out, ignore the driver review and check out...
