Default Re: Anyone done the upgrade from a 8800 GTX to 460 GTX?

Wow. That is all I have to say about my new GTX 465 Twin Frozr card. It came preflashed with the Twin Froz 470 BIOS and appears as a full fledged GTX 470 under windows. Beside the obvious speed improvements (My jaw hit the floor being able to play Crysis with everything at 4xAA @1920x1200) I really like how much cooler it runs then my 8800GTX. My old card used to idle at about @75 C, whereas my new card idles at @35. After playing Crisis for the evening, checking the Afterburner log I saw that my max temps hit 66 degrees, with my fan maxing out at 71%. Nice! Can't wait to try out some other games in the morn.

Color me impressed!
