Which card is the more dominant? My mate wants to know which has the more potential. Ive heard the Golden sample from Gainward are really good card's, but i don't think it comes close to something like my DirectCU model clocked at 935 stable.

The Golden samples are better as far as I know. Gainward apparently cherry picks the best chips and uses them in the GS where as with asus as long as it meets the specs they will use that chip.

The ASUS one is better because the cooler on the GW card is pretty weak. As for overclocking, they should OC about the same. The "GS" 460s aren't too special, the GLH ones are decent though.
