    They dont even make 460's anymore and the ones that are left are overpriced.

    600 złotych means less than $200 about $189.

    A non TI version is CRAP, you will regret it in the end. I just linked above a nice MSI 560TI card!

    IMO, I think the MSI one I posted is nicer. I love the HAWK cards

    I would opt for the TF2 as it's cooler is proven to be really really good. If you can't justify the premium then get the hawk linked above.

    The only issue is the website he was searching lists them as a TI hawk but the sellers are posting non TI and different model numbers. He should search another website that ships to Poland
