Which card to decide on??

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
MSI N460GTX CYCLONE 1GD5/OC GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card - 185 (15 MIR)

EVGA 01G-P3-1373-AR GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) Superclocked EE 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card - 190 (30 MIR)

MSI N460GTX Hawk Talon Attack GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card - 180 (30 MIR)

ASUS ENGTX460 DirectCU/2DI/1GD5 GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card - 199 (30 MIR)

These are the choices I was looking at. I don't think I want to go higher than that on the prices. I am still running the 9800GTX. I just want to upgrade to something better. I hope these cards are compatible with my mobo and I hope my PSU can handle it. Here are some parts from my computer:


Current Video Card: EVGA 512-P3-N871-AR GeForce 9800 GTX+ 512MB 256-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Current Mobo: GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3R LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard

Current CPU: Intel Core2 Quad Q9400 2.66GHz LGA 775 95W Quad-Core Processor BX80580Q9400

Current Ram: OCZ Reaper HPC 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066(PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model OCZ2RPR10664GK

Current PSU: CORSAIR Enthusiast Series CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS


Thanks in advance!

Hawk talon for cooler gaming, and maybe better overclocks. EVGA for warranty. I use a EVGA GTX460 EE and I can get to 1GHz stable, but I'm like the only one.

Well i believe you can run a 460 but maybe with a small bottleneck but i wouldnt worry uhh so i think you should get MSI N460GTX Hawk Talon Attack GeForce GTX 460 or a MSI N560GTX-TI Twin Frozr II 560s are much much better dont worry about psu its fine just upgrade the cpu to a quad core when you get the chance.

Personally I would get the MSI Hawk. The cooler is amazing on it.

A quality 400 watt PSU can handle that card so you're fine. =]

I would get the EVGA Superclocked 460 and use the 9800 for Physx.
Evga because RMAs are so easy.
High Quality.
Good Overclockers.
Good Tools to Overclock+Overvoltage.

I say get the regular MSi Hawk. I'm 100% certain you can OC it 30MHz. Besides it's $160 after rebate. This one.

Don't expect the rebates though. Usually in the world of PC hardware the rebates are like an extra bonus if you ever get them back.

I don't OC anything because I don't know anything about it. I do have that 9800GTX which is EVGA and I never had any problems with it. But if the MSI one is the best bang for that price than I can go for that I think. I don't know, haha.

If you truly don't plan on overclocking then take your pick from the bunch, it really doesn't matter.

If you don't want to OC then I would suggest the MSi Talon Attack.
