Im going to be out of town between the 21st-2nd so I dont know if theyll go down in price or just be sold out everywhere... might be worth preordering and have it waiting for me at home.
I thought about that one but the palit has a bigger cooler, higher clock speeds and is $229.

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

Edit: Just read this: https://www.evga.com/forums/tm.aspx?...mpage=1#466281

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."

Just great, now I'm mixed up too.

Entry Level (GT 220, 5450/5470)
Budget (GTS 240, 5550/5570)
Mainstream (GTS 250, 9800 GT, 5650/5670)
Performance (GTX 460, 5750-5770)
Enthusiast (GTX 465-480, 5830-5970)

... right? And then adding SLI/Crossfire to the mix mixes everything up further.

.. because of the GTX 460's performance vs GTX 465, IMO it pokes its head into the enthusiast category while remaining in the Performance price range.
For me man anything under $250 is mainstream

Performance is a 470 or 5850

Enthusiasts are 5870 or 480.

Nutjob are 480/470 SLI or 5870/5850 Crossfire or 5970

Nah, 480 SLI and 5800 Crossfire users are still mere enthusiasts. I don't call myself a nutjob. The true nutjobs are the Tri and Quad 480 SLI and 5970 Crossfire users who put water-cooling blocks on their GPUs. And then throw in a GTX 285 or 460 for PhysX in there for good measure.

460 =/= 285

Runs cooler, better PhysX performance, runs DX11 titles quite a bit better than other cards in its class, etc etc...

Not a sidegrade.

I am pleasantly surprised to see that my 295 is still quite competitive.

SLi is not worth it in my opinion. The problems you could get with drivers lacking support for a specific game versus just getting a single 480GTX are not worth the 10FPS difference.

I went from a benchmark faster system to the single card setup and its far better performance overall.

What I wana see is what high end devices come from this chipset.
