Hmm true but only 2 years of warranty. Tough decision!

Everyone who is thinking of getting a Palit or Gainward should go to that link, apparently the end consumer Gainward/Palit GTX 460's dont have VRM Heatsinks, while the reviewer units did. This results in crazy high temps on parts of the board and the fan cranking up high and loud.

This made my mind up, I preordered an EVGA 1GB 460 with "external exhaust."
