I like the look of the GTX 460 and GTS 450; one for each rig.

Might well be able to find something better used too.

This for sure. An easy 22-25K PPD. Check the for sale section on here. I picked up one last week for $100.

HOly replies batman! you guys are a great place! most places take forever to get back to me.....

Im seeing that its not as cut and dried as i was hoping... lol

i hadnt thought about going with a used card... ill poke around the BST for soem time... (can noobs see it?) if going used whats $250 going to get me? (i already got a PM )

my thoughts on the new EVGA cards... in 80days or so... i can upgrade, and they knock the price of the cards off... so go from the 460+450 to a pair of 560's....

Thanks all for the input! the PPD numbers are VERY helpfull!

EVGA's b-stock has some pretty good deals going on right now, you can get gtx460's for $110, and mine do 11k-12k ppd per card. It's a great price, though they only come with a 90d warranty. Still, should be plenty of time for you to figure out if the card has any issues, and then you can fold away. They've also got the 560ti for $180, if you'd prefer to get just a single card now and buy a second 560ti in ~80d. Still, for value the 460 is way up there.

^This. You could get 2 GTX 460s and have money left over. The OCN marketplace usually has several for sale.

If you want high PPD, get the GTX 465's. They fold a decent bit better than the GTX 460's and can still game well.

They're around $110 each on EVGA B-stock. Put those in SLI and you're GTG. =]
