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

It would be performance and overclocking ,since it will more then likely be slower then a GTX 465 and have less memory ,it would not really peak my interest,It would have to be at least on par with the HD5830.But I think I would tell people to save some or wait for a sale until they could get a GTX 470 or a HD5850.I bought my MSI GTX 470 for $279 on sale ,I see now they went up to $349.I have heard rummor that it is only going to have 768mb of memory whiich would be a turn off.
But I always try to buy the fastest cards ,so it would not even interest me.But if it comes clocked at 675/3600 that will make it more faster then a HD5830,what I don't understand is why the GTX 470 has such low clock on it,when all I have seen will do 700/3600 pretty easy.most will do faster ,I guess it is because it would put it in competion with the GTX 480.
even tho both my GTX 470's will do 775/3600 with no voltage ajustments and the fan set at 70%.
