    I think I recalled ATI having similar yield problems with 40nm processing. Wasn't that the reason that the 4770 was in such short supply for quite a while?

    I would think the two variations currently available would be enough to satisfy most consumers.

    And pardon this moment of being a grammar Nazi, but it has fewer CUDA cores, not less CUDA cores.

    well anyway having 3 cards all the same but with this and that turned off and on is just ludicrous and i wasn't talking about current cards i was making a point just because you have more memory bandwidth doesn't always mean higher FPS. Almost everyone games at 1680x1050 or less so in reality my point is the best point because once again there is no reason for 3 gtx 460 cards.

    Nope sir, you have an opinion as do others.
  5. GTX460 SE uses phallic( weakened) chips and therefore will never have my trust. With phallic things are never known, a test card works great, in reality manufacturers use SE mark in order to earn additional money (I heard that they have plan to make the MSI GTX460 SE with 192 bits). Do you remember ATI 9600SE, 9200SE, FX5700LE, FX5200 Magic etc. Sorry for bad english.

    I have a Radeon 9200SE I think. It wasnt bad at the time. An upgrade from my Gerforce 2MX.

    You do indeed have a "poor grip", or perhaps, "lack a firm grasp",(pardon the puns), on the definition of the word, "phallic".

    I actually bought one of these cards and I'm quite impressed with it. It overclocks like a champ - 850/1700/1000 - without voltage increase or breaking a sweat. Not bad for a crippled GTX 460 1GB. It also outpaces the stock 1GB, with this overclock, in most games. Again, not bad for $165 CAD.
