460 1GB or 6850.

the 460 SE is an inconsistent performer when compared to the other 2 cards and not worth getting if you can afford better.

Quote:
Performance numbers for this new SE card were interesting to say the least. At lower resolutions without AA enabled, it really doesn’t compare all that favorably to the similarly priced GTX 460 768MB. Once higher resolutions and image quality settings are used, the GTX 460 SE’s larger memory bandwidth can come into play and it begins to pull out ahead of the 768MB version – at times by significant amounts. It never does come close to matching the GTX 460 1GB but then again, it was never meant to.
Quote:
NVIDIA tried to thread a very fine performance needle here and nailed the target for the most part in terms of relative comparability to other products in their lineup. However, we still have to question the real use of this card. At $160 we just can’t see many people who sport 1080P or larger monitors choosing the SE over the $30 to $40 more expensive and much higher performing GTX 460 1GB. Even the HD 6850 (which can be found for under $190) proves to be more than NVIDIA’s newest card can handle. What we are seeing here is market saturation which isn’t necessarily a bad thing since it can lead to aggressive pricing structures. On the other hand, too many products at the same price point can also result in confusion on the consumer’s part.

you're not at 1080p but the point still stands.

Because of the Zotac noise issues, and my resolution, and the fact it is a powercolor, would a Evga 460 7xx mb version be best?

It is much cheaper at $120.

I am also buying a gtx 460 from canadacomputers I am thinking of getting the evga gtx 460 1gb even though it's a little more expensive since SE is slower and zotac has noise issues
