I did something like this, I had a 5770 setup in CF but wanted to go back NV, Reading, 460 was the best choice, But wait for 1GB or go ahead with 768mb model, I chose 768mb just because A) I didnt feel like waiting and B) the 1GB model was only scoring 3-5 more FPS in games.

Both cards look to OC very well. So I dont see why everyone says wait wait wait for 1GB.

I took the plunge and got the 768mb model and will get another for SLi next week. And still beat 480s and 5870s and 5970s. So im happy

Plus OP your at 1680x1050, the 768mb do just fine for that rez. The 1GB only be more useful in games more demanding like GTAIV.

If anything i'm the idiot for not waiting and I run at 2048x1152. But like I said, there going in SLi anyways, so whats 5 FPS anyways that can just be achieved back from OCing. As EVGA has said these cards clock very well, 800 core should be cake for every 460. Cant wait to see what they top out at!

Yea it sounds like 768 MB is the way to go (because of my low resolution) except 90% of people voted for 1GB.

The bigger bus/more memory really help. The benches speak for themselves.

The 1GB models are quickly leaving my budgeteer price range, are running in the $240-260s...that's like an extra 80-120 bucks for an sli set up. Originally I was gonna do the 1Gb model...now it's looking like I'm going with the 768s, not going to sli right away, but this winter maybe, that 120 is going to a decent mobo now =)

If you're going to make the investment, spring for the 1GB model. It will ensure solid performance for a great while. The Palit OC 1GB model was available on Newegg for $230 this morning, not sure if it still is.

The 1GB EVGA models are MIA. The ONLY place I've been able to find them is the EVGA website itself. I ordered the SC EE there and it'll be here tomorrow. For whatever reason 1GB models are super-slow to hit the distribution channel apparently, even though many AIB partners are making them.

1GB is the way too go. if you upgrade you monitor down the road you wont regret it.

Just wait till a coupon or wait for open box. No one ever has to buy brand new. Waiting allow for future release of more stable drivers for higher overclocks and etc.

I personally would wait.

Let the other people do some benchmarks and etc. As far as i know not all 460 allow voltage control......

Would the evga gtx 460 768mb superclocked version be better then a normal 1gb version. In most of the benchmarks the SC 768mb is better the stock 1gb by a fps or 2 and is cheaper. Even at 1920x1200 the 768mb is even better with everything turn on. I think 1920x1200 and below the 768mb is a sweet deal. What do you think?

I voted for the 1gb version I think more memory is always a good thing. I myself will be getting a 460 possibly in sli not sure yet though cause of the dual gpu fermi using higher clocked 460s or a full 384 gf 104 part.
