    *Updated With Benchmarks* GTX 460 1GB vs 8800 GTS 320MB

    First of all i would like to thank everyone for helping me decide on the GTX460 over the ATi 5830. Second i would have to say that this Gigabyte GTX460 1GB video card is SUPER light compared to my XFX 8800 GTS 320MB, a world of difference in weight. Also its 1 inch shorter than my previous card, and noise level i cant really tell if its quieter because of all the fans on the antec 900, but overall theres no noise increase at all. Here are the scores, i will be overclocking this today and i will post up the new scores.

    Geforce 8800 GTS 320MB

    3DMark 06 1280 x 1024 (0xAA) = 12604
    3DMark 06 1680 x 1050 (0xAA) = 11236

    Unigine 2.1 DX9 (0xAA)1280 x 1024 = 25.5 FPS
    Unigine 2.1 DX9 (0xAA)1680 x 1050 = It would crash halfway through the test.

    Temperatures:

    Room Temp: 23C
    8800GTS 320MB Idle: 54C (60% fan speed)
    8800GTS 320MB Load MSI Kombuster: 81C (60% fan speed)

    Geforce GTX 460 1GB

    3DMark 06 1280 x 1024 (0xAA) = 21191
    3DMark 06 1680 x 1050 (0xAA) = 19884

    Unigine 2.1 DX9 (0xAA)1280 x 1024 = 71.3 FPS
    Unigine 2.1 DX9 (0xAA)1680 x 1050 = 54.7 FPS
    Unigine 2.1 DX11 (4xAA)1680 x 1050 = 30.4 FPS

    Temperatures:

    Room Temp: 23C
    GTX460 1GB Idle: 31C (40% fan speed)
    GTX460 1GB Load MSI Kombuster: 65C (46% fan speed)

    The GTX 460 1GB definitely.

    Performance wise the 5830 is slightly behind the 768 MB 192-bit GTX 460.

    Considering that the 1 GB 256-bit GTX 460 is faster than the 5850 @ $24-35 more it seems like the better deal.

    Power consumption wise the 5850 seems slightly better but not by much, performance wise the GTX 460 takes it!

    I would go with the GTX 460. It'ss a really good deal especially if you decide to go SLI in the future.

    It's a tough call with the 5830 down to as low as $180 with rebates on newegg. In the test I saw the 5830 was usually within 10% of both 460 variants, even on top in a few. Coincidentally at $180 the 5830 cost 10% less than the 768MB 460 too. I think they are both good buys right now, but maybe the 5830 (and 5850) needs a little more price cutting to compete with the recent buzz around the 460.

    If you've got the money go straight for the 1 GB version. However if you're overclocking you might be able to drop down to the 768MB version, you will be saving yourself $30-40 whilst getting a similarly performing card. Look at this review an OC'd 768MB 192-bit GTX 480 card performs almost the same as a stock 1 GB 256-bit GTX 480 card.

    Sell it on ebay for $40-50. Use it to fund your new card.

    Maybe then you'll be able to buy a HD 5850 with that extra $40?

    Another thing to note, if you are putting $235 on the Gigabyte 1GB GTX 460 version - you could put $15 ontop of it for the GTX 465 1GB also Gigabyte for $250. Its slightly behind the 5850 which starts @ $290.


    GIGABYTE GV-N465UD-1GI GeForce GTX 465 (Fermi) 1GB...

    Edit:

    One thing that is confusing me, is that in a lot of reviews the GTX 465 seems slightly slower than the GTX 460, I do not understand why :confused:

    If you're in the states, I'd recommend waiting a few weeks until 460 1GB's start popping up on here, they'll surely be under $200. But if you want to pay full price, still get the GTX 460.

    Where's the poll? :p

    So you're saying the 1GB prices will go down to $200 dollars, but how soon do you think this will happen.

    I said used ones for sale on the forums here will be going for <$200. That's just how it is, sellers lose about 15% off of retail during the first 2 months, then it goes up 10% or so every month after. I can't tell you when you'll start seeing them. They're good cards so people might just hold on to them.

    Pretty sure the MSRP on the 768MB model is $199 and the 1GB is $229; given how well it's be received there's no reason to expect price cuts any time soon. We should be happy that they are well stocked and retailers are not gouging a few extra bucks off them.

    what im really worried about is the new prices of the 5850, they are at $280 bucks, and since i plan to buy the gigabyte gtx460 1gb $235 its just shy of 45 dollars away from buying a better card. I hope the gtx460 could last me a good 2-3 years before upgrading again due to games requirements.

    well your not the only one! I am currently running a 7600GS. going to wait for prices to become acceptable around £100 / $150. no doubt they will, just a matter of time.

    Pay 20-35$ more for physx, cuda and better overclocking. Bear in mind that gtx 460 consumes more power
    And what a coincidence... I too have been running my 7600GS for 3 years...
