Default What's most important to you with regards to GTX 460?

Given that the $199 - ~ $240 price point is such an important one to gamers as it is so popular, it seems that the upcoming release of the GTX 460 is going to be fairly important to NVIDIA fans and general hardware enthusiasts alike.

This card could turn out to be a hit, or a miss.

There are several factors to consider if one is interested in this card.
  • Performance vs. other cards near its price point (HD 4890, HD 5830, GTX 260, GTX 275, GTX 465)
  • PhysX performance
  • Folding performance
  • Power consumption
  • Noise
  • Heat
  • SLI scalability
  • 3D Vision/Surround Gaming
  • Antialiasing performance
  • Driver quality
  • Overclockability
  • CPU scaling (or lack of)
  • Build quality

There are bound to be plenty of you in this hardware community who could be interested in the GTX 460. In the event that you are, what's most important to you? What will these cards need to excel at for you to actually push the "Add to my Cart" button?

I'm just interested in seeing what the expectations are of this upcoming release.
