GTX 460 SE, GTX 460 768MB, or GTX 465?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I'm on a limited budget here, so I'm probably buying used.

But between the three cards and price, which do you think will perform the best? I've studied several benchmarks of these cards, and they are all more or less the same. The only difference is, the GTX 465 by Galaxy is only $129 brand new, which makes me a little bit suspicious. Yes, it does have lower clocks than the 460 SE or 460, but it can be overclocked.

I've her pretty much nothing but good reviews and EVGA cards, and average thoughts on Galaxy cards (talking about the past too.)

GTX 460 SE (Used, like new $130): [ame=http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004DKWLB4/sr=8-1/qid=1311442712/ref=olp_product_details?ie=UTF8&me=&qid=1311442712&sr=8-1&seller=]Amazon.com link[/ame]

bah wish i had 25 reps so i could sell my 460....do you need to buy it right away?

There are price drops on 460 all the time (check ocn deals and slickdeals). I'd wait on that. You should be able to find a good one in week or 2

No, I don't need it right now. But I'd like to get at least some card within a moth or so. My friend is loaning me his old 5770, so I don't want to wait around too long to pick up my own card.

Thanks for the sites to check, I'll have to keep my eye on them.

For the same price as a GTX 460 you can get a GTX 560 or for $50 more than the GTX 560 you can get a GTX 560 Ti.

That Galaxy 465 at 129.99 is an AMAZING deal, and with all cards at max OC's, it will handily outperform the other two cards you've mentioned.

465's have the downside of being relatively energy-inefficient, but they are still very solid cards when it comes to performance. Check out the newegg reviews (it has 5 eggs, does it not?), people seem very happy w/the card. Apparently it runs cool and quiet, and it's not some cut-rate crap version of the 465 ... it has all solid caps and copper heatpipes and even VRM heatsinks according to one reviewer.

The real 'bonus' of the 465 is that it is a TREMENDOUS overclocker, both in terms of headroom (the % increase in clocks that are possible) and the scaling (the % increase in FPS vs. the % increase in clocks). It's OC headroom is unmatched by any card aside from the 470 (the card is really just a cut-down 470 and uses the same clocks, so that's why) on the market.

With both cards at their max OC's, the 465 and (full-blown) GTX460 1GB are very closely matched (within a few % of each other) and trade blows depending on the test. The 465 is the more powerful card when tessellation is involved because it's based on the 4xGPC GF100 chip, vs. the 2xGPC GF104 chip on the 460 (a lot of the tessellation power comes from the GPC count).

That perf comes at a price though because at equivalent perf levels the 465 will def. generate more heat and run warmer than the 460 1GB will. But so what? It's designed to run warm, and has a full-blown GTX470 cooler on it so it's well-handled. It even exhausts the majority of heat from the case, unlike with the 460's (except for a couple evga 'EE' models which everyone says are ungodly loud).

Here's the venerable Staryoshi's review of these two cards. He does Stock, Clock for Clock, and Max OC tests, and here's a chart of the results. As you can see, there is really no game where the perf difference between the two cards is large enough to ever notice while gaming. Ergo, unless you can find a GTX 460 1GB somewhere brand-new for something close to $129.99 (next to impossible as far as I've seen), the 465 at that price is the best choice in this price-range, bar-none.

I have some 460SE and I paid 110.00 usd each for them new. They aren't very great on their own but in SLI they are pretty acceptable.

If you're gaming on a resolution of 1680x1050 or less, get the GTX 460 768MB version. If you're on a larger resolution get the 1GB version.

$120 isn't bad for the 460 but you can get it cheaper used in the sale section.

For what its worth, I'm very happy with my EVGA gtx 460 1gb which after the rebate comes in, will have cost me about $90. Pretty good deal I'd say.

If I were you I would be looking at the EVGA B-Stock stuff:

http://www.evga.com/products/prodlist.asp?switch=20

The GTX465 is the best performer out of the ones you listed, it also has a significantly higher power usage than the gtx460's.
