Only if it can unlock into GTX 470. Otherwise a bad deal.
In that price you should consider picking up a GTX 460. If possible grab GTX 460 1 GB 256-bit one.
GTX 465 locked < GTX 460 < GTX 465 that can unlock into GTX 470 = GTX 470
A locked GTX 465 should cost no more than $85 IMO, $95 if it is a good card like MSI Twin Frozr.Edited by trumpet-205 - 1/7/12 at 11:12am
