    So unless there is something better(twin frozr), this is worthless? Have a look at reviews of cyclone gtx460 cards. They are all extremely quiet and have great temperatures. Have look at guru3d review of this 6850 card. It has best idle/load temp for this price range cards, noise is really low too.


    With cyclone that card is at 65°C when oc to 1017, so I don't think its the temperatures that holds you from some huge overclock... so twin frozr would be probably meaningless

    i got an old good 5850 for 180$ i think its good deal since the 460s are for 250 and the 6850 is for 210

    Holy ****!

    I'm from europe myself and a Twin Frozr GTX 470 costs 325$ here (vs 270$ on newegg after rebate). Keep in mind so many countries have much lower minimum wage than US too.
