Default Palit GTX 460 2 GB

Anyone seen this? It's a 460 overclocked like hell with 2 GB of GDDR5.

I can get one at my local Fry's in Burbank for $260.

I guess 2GB would be decent futureproofing, especially in SLI.

OK....so the desktop flickers randomly with the GTX 460.

Anyone else seeing this behavior?

Screw PALIT!

I knew I should have gone with EVGA.

Returning this card.

When the price seemed too good to be true...it was.

DO NOT BUY PALIT!

While I've never heard of them, Maybe it's just a bad card?

That being said, Evga is the best.

I've only ever used Evga and BFG once because they were based in Illinois so easy to get issues figured out / quick RMA. Never had to though.

EVga all the way.

Angel, the screen flickering I have read is due to the windows power saving feature that underclocks the card when not in a 3d game. I havn't been able to dig into where the setting is though. It would be in the power section where you select performance/balance/battery saving. Something I can't seem to see on my windows 7 install here.

Mine is/was always set to High Performance. It's the first thing I do after a format.

The EVGA GTX 465 SSC has NO flickering or problems, just as I expected. The PALIT card must have been defective.

Well I might be getting a GTX 480 after all.

CS 5's Mercury Engine is set to support the GTX 480 only, and I'm gonna need to do video editing.
