Which 460GTX (Buying tonight or early in the A.M)

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
OK since I think its a waste to pay $100 more for a 560gtx Ti, I am now 100% set on the two different 460's GTX's. It's either the 460GTX Hawk 1GB or the 460GTX Cyclone 1GB. I hear a lot of good reviews from both, however, as to which one cools better and has the potential to overclock more I am not sure. I've read ton of reviews and it's difficult to get a grasp on which one is better. They pretty much cost the same price. Which ever card I purchase, I plan to go SLI soon. If anyone could help me out, I would greatly appreciate it!!!

Get they Hawk, the cooling is AWESOME and they overclock like beasts.

My Hawks are at 925 core idling @ 28 * C, Full load is under 60 C

I like my EVGA GTX 460 SSC+, but the Hawk would have better cooling.

This is the card I have http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...20460%20SSC%2b

I remember reading a few threads where each gets praises. To be honest both the cyclone and Hawk that were linked are great cards. Out of the two, I like the Hawk better.

Talon attack has slightly better components, not worth the premium to me though. Go with the hawk, you wont be dissapointed.

Reason I asked is because this card is cheaper, and will most likely flash to a 470. If the non sc version wasnt out I'd suggest that.
