Best Nvidia Price/Performance card?
 
What do you think is the best Nvidia card out there for the money. I think it's the GTX 460 1GB which can be had for about $200 shipped. The 768 GB model goes for around $169 but is not as future-proof. Then there's the GTX 470 which has dropped to less than $250. Is it that much better than the GTX 460?

In Hong Kong, Inno3D GTX 480 has dropped to roughly $35X! Thats also gotta be in for run of "value for money"

PNY XLR8 GTX 460 1GB

$199.99 shipped - $30 MIR = $169.99

That's your value winner. ;)

IMO it depends on your monitor.

If you have a larger monitor with a 1920x1080 or greater resolution I personally wouldn't go with anything less than the 470.

My 5770 plays all games @ 1920 x 1200 with maxed in-game settings no problem. For some I cannot use AA, but that's not a huge sacrifice imo.

The 460 would be more than sufficient. :)
