The SE version of the GTX 460 is the tapered down version. Here's a comparison between the normal GTX 460 1GB and the HD 6850. The SE would be a few FPS lower than the normal GTX 460.

Edit: Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but the SE performs similarly to the 768MB version of the 460 doesn't it?

yes,768mb is better than 1gb SE,but I want direct answer,
how much gtx460se is slower than hd6850?

Not sure about the SE version, but the standard version OC's very well, so I would assume the SE would have some decent overclocking headroom.

Why are you comparing to a 6850 if you have a 5770? it will be faster than the 5770, not sure where the other card came into this?

gtx460 SE has clock speed of 650mhz,
its a 256bit card,has 288 SPU's,has 48 tpu(dont know what is tpu),32 ROP's
gtx460 768mb has clock speed of 675mhz,its a 192bit card,has 336 SPU's,has 56 TPU's,24 ROP's,
overall gtx460 768mb is faster

see the post carefully,I asked to compare a hd6850 ta a gtx460 SE,
I said that if gtx460 SE has good OC potential then I'll have a look for gtx460 SE,
I cant afford hd6850 because its out of my budget

SEs overclock higher than non-SE cards, and require less voltage to do so. They also produce less heat.

If you get lucky enough to find an SE that will clock to 970MHz+, it will beat the non-SEs, as the latter tops out at around 850-900MHz on average.

but why does SE version OC better?
Whats the special in it?

Pretty sure "TPU" is texturing units.

SE's may overclock slightly better just because they produce less heat. Less heat = more headroom.

I would just buy the standard 1gb 460 myself, though. Why give up the 48 CUDA cores and 8 (I think?) texture units?

What? if you cant afford 6850 why are you asking about it? thats what my original post is asking. And I offered my opinion of the gtx460.

Probably will clock fairly well but not quite with the standard version. And if you dont want to go super high clocks why are you sop concerned about overclocking? EVGA standard edition 460's are stock clocked to 720Mhz. So dont tell me to read the post carefully, just answer the questions and be observant.

Either get the 1GB GTX 460 (non-SE) or the 6850. =)

both gtx460 1gb & hd6850 are out of my budget,I cant spend a single more money as I have to buy a new psu also,
I have money for hd5770 but now I'm trying for gtx460 768mb,

but I dont think I can afford gtx460 + new psu,so may be have to go with hd5770 + new psu

In INDIA u wont get an EVGA card,
in my city the stores keep zotac,msi card,
they dont have the msi gtx460 SE,they have msi gtx460 cyclone

They're pretty much the same. The 460 will win some, the 6850 will win some. The 460 may edge out more often than the 6850, but the 460 also uses more power/puts out more heat than the 6850.

Of course both have the usual benefits. Eyefinity for the AMD, PhysX for the Nvidia.

Edit: This compares them both stock, overclocked, and in multi gpu configs. http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/g...e_off_review/1

so I'm getting zotac gtx460 SE,
customer support of zotac is very good in India

Your missing the point. The point is if companies clock their cards to what you want an OC to achieve, then there is obviously a lot more headroom to overclock the cards. I never said buy EVGA or anything, im just telling you that they can be clocked high... im done
