Temps folding on the 465 or 470 shouldnt be that bad especially if you are coming from a GX2
They'll be the best temps you ever saw.
The consensus around here is that the GTX460/768 is the best F@H card for the money when considering PPD and wattage. The GTX465 that you mentioned is from Asus and they have a utility to unlock the number of shaders to the same as the 470. I forget where a link to that was listed.
EDIT: The GTS450's are the "best bang for the money" when the 9xx WU's are available, but it's production drops more than the 460 when working on a 611 WU.
Try a search for unlocking an asus gtx 465.
well due too some circumstances. my mainframe doesnt have an 8pin connector. so i cant run the GX2 in it. my current mobo sata slots are in teh way and as such the GX2 cant go in the second slot. remedy? put a 260 in the mainframe keep the gx2 as primary and run the 260 as dedicated physx in the second slot. resault? 3 cards folding in main rig. unfortunetely im having HDD trouble on the mainframe. so I wont be able to get that running until my next day off. im too tired to keep going on it today i have to work tonight so staying up is not an option. i need to relax. but these are currently running. the PPD will increase im sure.
You should be getting at least 5k per GX2 core and then 7k+ from the GTX260. Could you post a HFM shot?
$95 MSI GTS450 after $25 MIR with a free HAWX 2 game coupon. New style of cooler for MSI. Stock clocked at 850MHz.
Even working on 611 WU's, the GTS450 is probably the better bang for the buck over the 460. Just that the 460 is more consistent I'm guessing since the GTS450 might not always be working on a 9xx WU, correct?
I know that Buck said he got a 9xx WU and there are two open series again but I still get the 611's. Untill there will be a good flow of the nice 9xx's then I would go for 460. Long term investment - I would still go for the higher shader count.
My hex is hungry - Attempt #9 to get work failed. There is no other work to do.
OK, it does some WGC in the waiting time.
I know the 460 is more expensive but not much over the GTS450. So still both are Grady cards!
I recommend the Asus GTS450 great card with OC out of the box and temps even when you OC it more stay below 50C. The GTX 460 I have Gigabyte and PNY brand and both seem to be the same in OC and temps. Hope that helps
Could this Cuda update be for those with 400 series GPU's? Maybe performance increases with the 400's?
I wouldn't mind paying a little less for
Ore consistent PPD but when I'm ready I'll see.
Did you guys see the announcement on TPU's home page for the GTS 450 HOF from Galaxy? Factory clocked at 1000C/2000S/1025M!
Does anybody know what the price is?
It's "on the way" to our market. Not here yet.
Article didn't state a price.
It would be our luck that it ends up costing 460 money You know thats how it always works
today is the day i break 1 million currently 999,893. Is there any hazing for the 1 million points club?
You will know when you get there. There is a non-disclosure agreement that forbids us to tell about the benefits (xx% off on 980x and so on). Welcome to the club
yep he has to shave his head like a monk bald on top and hair on the sides.
JK but it sounds good...
No, but your badge does change to say "1 Million Points". See below.
How do I get back in on this? I havent been on here for awhile due to school and work. I would like to join the team.
