Newegg has added some interesting refurbished videocards recently, I figured I would point out two:

EVGA GTX 275 1792MB DDR3 - $65 FS

A GTX275 for $65 isnt much to get excited about but this one is the double memory edition which makes it a little unique, although it's still DX10 only and power hungry compared to modern cards.

EVGA GT545 1GB DDR3 - $45 FS

Decent performer for a card that doesn't require an external power connection. Maybe interesting as a PhysX card.

You can look thru them all here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100006662%204016&IsNodeId=1&page=1&bop=And&Pagesize=100

Dang, wish I hadn't looked in this thread now lol.
I also have my eye on the 460 for $80. its funny how they still mark the 460SE at a higher price than the 768 even though it performs way worse

The SE is just a little underclocked,
288 cores Vs 336, and 8 less TMUs.

The 768mb version is only 192--bit,
and with 8 less ROPs.

So, the 768mb has less bandwidth, memory and ROPs than the standard.
The SE has less TMUs and cores.

In my eyes,
the SE is better,
especially when you bring it up to normal clocks.

I never thought of it that way. I guess I always thought of the SE as more of a marketing gimmick. Did you know they created a 4th version of the 460 called the 1gb v2?

I'm just looking for a backup card with a good bang for my dollar.

GTX 460 is still a great card, I play BF3, low settings between 45-70fps at 1680 x 1050 res. It would do very well in most games and decently in new games. I did OC mine a fair bit, 830ish core but that is a typical OC.

Dunno how that 6xxx card will compare, I would expect it to be less of a performer. Likely it would be fine for a backup, depending on what you need it to do as backup.

For what? The 670 has no problems at all handling even the most demanding PhysX out there, such as Mafia II.

Well, the benchmark was done with a GTX 690 as the base GPU so I'd imagine a GTX 670 doing worse. Benchmark was also done at 1080p so when scaling to 1440p the bonus FPS will matter even more. Considering Borderlands 2 particularly benefits w/ AA I'd say that's another solid reason.

However, I'd be curious to see how much truth there is in all of this with the newer drivers/patches.

Not unless you're constantly dipping below 60fps is the thing. Even then, you're talking about extra power and heat for PhysX, which isn't very well supported anymore. A dedicated PhysX card on a 670 is just mostly a waste of money and power for the gains.

I have a 220 doing just fine with Netflix and Hulu on a 1080p tv. Eventually going to buy a Blu Ray reader and wondering if the 220 will still be enough. It's paired with a quad core Athlon 645 which I'm sure is plenty of cpu.

Yep, you'll have no problem at all. It really doesn't take much to play 1080p these days, especially on cards capable of rendering in games.
