  1. It's a simple question i have 160€ to buy graphic card, the best i can get for that kind of money is either EVGA gtx 460 786 SC or MSI gtx n460 786/5d Cyclone.

    Which one is better?
    Both cost same, one is 158€ other 160€.

    Which is quieter?
    I can't find accurate info, for EVGA it says max noise 40 db, but at the same time it says it is the quieter of this class. For MSI i found review that says it only produces 31 db at full load.

    How does mini-hdmi/dvi to hdmi work?
    I saw lots of threads on different forums, where people are reporting problems with sound when they connect gtx 460 to TV to watch movies.

    Thnx for help.

    So, i found more information at goru 3d, they tested some of gtx 460 cards and now it is even tougher to decide.

    eVGA is a couple of fps faster than cyclone in most tests, but it doesn't have a voltage raise function if i decide to further oc. Whinch means max overclock is a bit lower compare to Cyclone.


    In the end i may just buy the cheapest palin gtx 460 fot 145€ and overclok it, i am sure i could oc it to 800mhz core and 4000mhz ram.
