Umm, Mafia II, Mirror's Edge, er...

There are more, but I can't really think of them right now.

No offense, but why did you get a 465 a week ago? Was it a bargain? Because there are better cards out there for the money, and cheaper.

I got it for $150 on Tigerdirect. Mind you I went from a HD 4670 to a GTX 465. HUGE difference.

Yeah, at that price, it's a pretty good deal I guess.

And I realize it is just a hotter 460 but it preforms awesomely and stays very cool with the cooler.

Yeah, I mean it's not an awful card, just at the price it usually seems to retail at, there are other cards you can get which are better in most ways.

For that price ~240 why not get another 465? or 460 for even less?

The folder's will correct me but a 460 does better than a 450 I assume?

Hell for $240 you can get this 470

It does better but not enough to justify the price increase IMO. IIRC a 460 gets at best 2k ppd more than the 450 and theres usually a $50 price diff between the two.

Can't an Oc'd 450 easily reach a stock 460's PPD?
