No. The SE is the worst 460 card, and for $129, you could pick up a used full 460 1gb on here. You'd be better off with a 768mb at that price if you wanted to stay new.
In progress.

i agree with Droogie.

its better to get a 768 for that price.

SE aren't really 460

it's kinda like how a 560 isn't a 560 Ti

You'd be better off with a regular GTX 460. The GTX 460 SE will only be worth it if you do the rebate.

As said you could pick up a used GTX 460 1gb or 768mb here for the same price, and there are lots of them being passed around.

I have the GTX 460 SE, but picked it up for 100, which is why I have one. The SE is basicly a downgraded GTX 460 1gb, if your wondering.

it'll be better if you tell us your budget and where you can buy your stuff (newegg, amazon, tigerdirect) and we can help you better.

Good idea. I'm trying to keep my budget at around $150 for a graphics card.

I wasn't sure if I could get a 460 for that which is why I was going to jump at the 460 SE for $129 until I found out what an SE really is.

It looks like the new GTX 460s are about 175 on newegg. I do have time for the price to drop. About a month.

Why is everyone downing on the GeForce GTX 460 SE but saying the GeForce GTX 460 768MB is better? I though they were both cut down, just in different ways. Yes, I'd rather have the 768MB variant, but neither is really much much better from what i thought. I thought they were roughly on par and traded places depending on the game?

Anyway, it's an okay-ish deal. GeForce GTX 460 768MB versions were ~$130 after rebate months back, so it's a rather good deal at $99, but not quite amazing.
