I keep hearing that the 460 OC's like a beast...

...But I can only get 840/1680/1950. Is that good? Any higher than that and I start seeing red, green, and Blue sparkles during benchmarks.

I'm at 850/1700/1895. Too lazy to add in system specs. Mine can go to 880ish core but I don't want load temps above 60.

Have you adjusted the voltage to 1.087V or whatever yet? There is also the option of flashing you cards BIOS to raise the 1.087V voltage cap to 1.2V, which will let you clock it higher at the expense of heat. Not sure if it is recommended to run 1.2V with stock cooling though. I'm at 900MHz core with 1.087V, and temps never exceed 55 C. Usually only loads at about 44-45 C though.

Mine's on stock voltage.

Haven't touch voltages yet. Can EVGA Precision do that? My temps are fine, they only hit about 44C under load.

O.o Define "load". I use Afterburner but Precision should work fine too.

What's the point of overclocking gtx 460? I have a SuperClocked version. Wouldn't it not be good if i attempt to clock it? I just don't wanna encounter problems. What improvements would i see anyways? FPS?

Superclocked only raises clock by 100 mhz at most. And yeah, you'll get 3-4 more fps.
