Yeah you can get a GTX 460 FPB 1024MB model for $110 on EVGA B-stock..mine arrived looking brand new and has been performing just fine..I'd be afraid to overclock it though tongue.gif

this is a seriously better deal than the one you originally posted. smile.gif

Nice find thanks.

I have a 750w psu so I'm gonna go with this.. thought I was going to end up spending 175 so I'm really happy now.

Anyone who says the SE is a bad card is clueless. It was never a bad card, it just wasn't good in terms of price/performance but for this price it's a good deal. A GTX 460 768 is not worth $30 more than a SE.

The 768 is slightly faster than the SE for a single card. The SE much better for SLi.

The only thing that should make you think twice is the Galaxy GTX 465 as mentioned before.

That'd be a valid point if the only difference between the GeForce GTX 460 768MB and GeForce GTX 460 1GB was VRAM, but it's not. It also has less ROPs (24 vs 32) and a smaller memory interface bus (192-bit vs 256-bit). The SE variant does not have these limitations. As you said, it's limitation is instead less shaders.

The GeForce GTX 460 768MB is a cut back version just like the GeForce GTX 460 SE is, just in different ways. Therefore, they are better at different tasks, but neither is really head and shoulders above the other. People here are acting like they are worlds apart when they are not.

All in all, $99 for one isn't a bad deal. The 768MB would be going for ~$150 and ~$130 after rebate, and those were considered good deals just a few months back, so there's no way a SE for $100 before rebate isn't at least a decent deal right now.
