Hands down, no competition.

Free shipping, cheaper, and free game....oh and the best 460 you can buy for air cooling.

I just had one, and IT IS A BEAST!!

If it has the Cyclone or Twin Frozr cooling from MSI, get it. They are all beastly overclockers.

the 460 SOC is probably going to be better, as is the Talon...

there's also the Hawk. TwinFrozr II still, but with a $200 pricetag and slightly lower clocks out of the box. comes with both free games still. personally i'd grab the SOC. i'd have one if they hadn't been so expensive when i bought my Hawk

Wouldn't something with Artic Coolings Accelero HS be one of the better options for air cooling? Like one of these?

i been thinking about the Hawk Talon and Asus DirectCU.
The Asus is £10 cheaper then the hawk and it has VRM cooling but not seen many people hit 900 core with it.
