Pros

GF104 GPU is not simply a cut down GF100, actually significantly redesigned

2 agree

easy to overclock and see noticeable performance improvement without touching the voltage

2 agree

Fermi - fully DirectX 11 compliant, the best GPGPU / tessellation performance

2 agree

runs as cool and quiet as the best competition from ATI

2 agree

great performance for the dollar

2 agree

now beating ATI for price to performance (as of August 2010)

2 agree

supports the wide array of Nvidia technologies: CUDA, PhysX, SLI and 3D Vision

2 agree

affordable price point for mainstream gamers

2 agree

capable of playing all the latest games on high resolutions (1680 or 1920) at high detail settings

2 agree

performance headroom with better drivers coming out on a consistent basis

1 agrees

Can reach near a stock GTX 470 speeds with much less heat, noise & power consumption.

1 agrees

Best card from the GTX 400 series. Doesn't overheat like its bigger siblings GTX 470 & GTX 480.

Cons

1 GB memory is not exactly enough for today games.

1 agrees

no equivalent to ATI's Eyefinity (>2 monitors on a single GFX card)

1 agrees

doesn't completely eclipse $200 cards from the DX10 era - meaning an upgrade may not be justified for those with previous generation cards, DX11 is not yet such an important consideration

The nVidia GeForce GTX 460 is a graphics card module released into the Fermi family in summer 2010 a few months after the launch of the flagship GTX 480 and GTC 470. It’s particulary a less expensive, less complicated and more applicable unit, especially when compared to the “Tank” GTX 480. Featured are 336 cores, 7 tessellators, and 56 texture mapping units (all lower than the 480), but a 90W savings in power consumption. Note that there are two versions available: one with a 256-bit memory bus with 1024MB of GDDR5 RAM, and one with a 192-bit memory bus with 768MB of memory. Both are short (8.25”) and host a dual-slot cooling fan and heat-sink with dwo Dual-Link DVI outputs and a single mini-HDMI output. Both are also extremely quiet and designed specially for overclockers (675-800MHz).
