GTX 460? Looking for some advice. - Page 2

Thanks again everyone, looks like the MSI GTX460 Hawk would be a good buy - it's just a matter of finding a UK retailer that isn't charging £20 extra for it because they actually have it in stock now

Ive Been using the MSI 460 gtx Hawk edition for a while now. Without touching the voltages you can easy doing 850 core clock and 1800 on the memory. I ran Furmark stress test with core clock at 900 and memory 1800 and the temperature maxed out at 56c and ides and 32c.
Also Just order an seconded one to do sli configuration which comes in today

The reviews I have seen tend to suggest the Hawk can achieve a higher overclock out of the box - though I did take a look (and at other discussions on this) so thanks for the suggestion.

I must say, I think the Hawk looks far better than the DirectCU too - yes, it's sad but that's one of the reasons I prefer the Hawk

Going to drop Scan sales an email and see if they're getting the Hawk in stock any time soon, if not I found somewhere else reasonably priced to get it (though unfortunately without free delivery).
