GTX 460
GTX 460 SE

How do i know what GTX 460 I have?

I would just go with the GTX 460 driver. Maybe GPU-Z would shed some light on this. I have a 450 superclocker EVGA card, I just go with the standard 450 updates, dont know if it's different really for a 460.

You have the GTX460. GTX460 and GTX460 SE are two different cards.

To confirm, just run GPU-z. GTX460 has 336 shaders while the SE has 288.

Or, simply go into the Nvidia Control Panel and click System Information at the bottom left and check for the number of CUDA Cores. See pic below (which is for a GTX 570).

If you have superclocked version. You can find out if it is SE or not by checking core clock.
SE: 720
EE or regular: 763

It doesn't matter which card you pick in the dropdown, you're going to get the exact same driver. Hell, you could pick a 8800GT and you'd get the exact same driver ...

It seems that way. They just want you to feel as though your getting the most "optimized" driver for your card, but it looks as like its the same download sizes.....

In addition to giving you the feeling of having a 'personalized' customer support, perhaps the bigger reason is for their inhouse statistical study. I think they want to find out how many people download which models so that they have a better idea of the distribution of card models in the real world.

The only time when this matters is when they release a brand new card and they have a special driver for that card alone.
