I did several times. No one said anything bad about the 786MB model. And, the reviews on Newegg say it can max anything people can throw at it at 1080p res. So there's really nothing to worry about.

HUGGEE diff between that res and 1080p. Even a 470 chokes at running bc2 maxxxxed at 1080 p. Not by much but there is some stutter, trust me I had 6 diff 470s, and a few 460's..
A single 460 just cant do it. But it WILL run it with pretty damn high settings.. Just not maxxed.

Would you like to go look at the reviews on newegg?
Oh, and, in the description it's a 786MB at 1080p

And Metro 2033 is extremely demanding on your GPU. So if a single GTX 460 can run that at high, im sure it can run BFBC2 at max.

You did not get ripped just not deals to brag about.

At the time of my buy the Asus GTX 460 786MB was on sale for like something ridiculous like 130$. Therefore I picked that up and got a better monitor for the money I saved.
