No, there's nothing even close. It has an excellent aftermarket cooler and is an excellent card for price.


The 460 performs almost identically to the 465, you should actually look things up before espousing wrong information.


So you're suggesting the 5770 which costs almost the same but gets destroyed by the 465, brilliant!

If you don't have anything factually accurate to contribute you don't have to say anything.

The Galaxy 465 is a much better choice than anything at it's price point.

Actually I believe he is correct, as I remember seeing a number of times that the 460 not only was better on power but slightly came out ahead in certain games over the 465. I am sure someone will chime in and come with the proof that you are seeking since I have seen this surface many times now.

Look at that chart you just quoted.

If you're going to recommend cards above his budget (fail in rebates don't count) I can give much better suggestions than the 6870 such as the 560 Ti and regular 560 which is just as fast as the 6870 at stock and overclocks much better for the same price.

6870 will max everything at 1080p single monitor. It can also be run with a quality 430w and above.

edit: OP, DO NOT get used cards without warranty or open box like others have said. graphics cards are very fragile in terms of circuitry so unless you're gonna upgrade in the near future, I suggest not getting a used/open box/refurb vid card.
