Would you look at best buy and recommend one please? I can sometimes get employee pricing there I'm going to make some calls tomorrow.
I can get the galaxy the nvidia or the PNY in the store but I wouldn't mind ordering I guess depends on if they could still do the employee price.

someone mind checking my gfx card thread plz?

It's nothing to worry about. There's no reviews that show the GTX 460 768MB being over-volted, but as you may know, the reference uses the exact same PCB as the GTX 460 1GB (meaning it has the same power phase design and OC potential) and the same cooler. The reference GTX 460 1GBs consume more power and are able to handle over-volting just fine, so this shouldn't be any different. Stock you'll be able to get 850MHz on the Core. With a bit of over-volting, you should get 900MHz. It's up to you if the added power consumption makes it worth it.

PNY uses the stock reference design. As far as that goes, it's the same as EVGA. What's not the same is customer support, which because it's from PNY means there's not much of it, should you need it. As for Galaxy, they're probably using a custom cooler and shroud that looks hideous. I don't know about their customer service, though, since no one I know has one of their cards. You said they also have NVIDIA reference, right? That means the customer support and the card itself is gonna be the same as EVGA, but since it's NVIDIA reference I don't think you'll get as many accessories in the box.

Long story short: if you can get the employee discount get the NVIDIA reference. If you can't, get the EVGA. Those are your two best choices.

Alright thanks Axel!
Anyone know of anywhere else I should double check for prices?

Sorry for the bump but can a GTX 460 SE (I decided not to get the ASUS one because it wasn't wanting to let me submit or something and the EVGA was much cheaper this way on compusa I can save on shipping and have something folding while waiting ) can the 460 SE be SLI'ed to a GTS 450 SC I have the bridge running I think the display ports are all that fried afterburner and nvidia control panel see both but I don't see set up sli or w/e in the nv control panel (I installed the EVGA SLI Enhancement as well ). I set CPU to stock until I knew if the PSU could handle both and the OC, but if no SLI there is no point I'll take the defective one out. I'm doing this so I can keep some PPD going while I order and wait on this

I would really reconsider the SE, and get a regular 460 at newegg. Never had a problem with newegg shipping something.

Also no you can not SLI with anything besides the exact same card, only crossfire can be hooked up to other cards.

Also you have absolutely no reason to worry about your power supply, you are probably not even using half of it.

*sigh* You got the SE. I told you it was not worth it. Oh well. No, GTS 450 and 460 cannot be SLI'd as they do not use the same core configuration.

Yep 15+ posts of me and Axel telling him to get the 768MB if he couldn't afford the real 460 1Gb and " would you look here and recommend, then look here" etc and he still ignores our advice. *double sigh*

Fixed keyboard jammed up. Couldn't edit.
I was asking about the SLi so I might get a PPD increase while waiting and return when the 768 gets here. Oh well I guess I got the two SLi and Crossfire confused thanks for the info guys.

Um, you don't use SLI for folding. You simply select which of the GPUs, be it the 450 or the 460, you want to use. You can also fold with both simultaneously. You do not need SLI or an SLI bridge for it.
