Customer Reviews of PNY VCGGTX4601XPB-OC NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460, 1GB GDDR5 Overclocked Video Card
I got 2 of these from PNY and both of them overheated to the point it burnt out the fan and the other one just overheated even with the fan fully functional. Eventually went with a evga and its working great
Great Bang for the buck -- Product Delivers1/14/2011
I can say I am quite satisfied with the single card I bought. My motherboard cannot handle the latest graphics cards and so when I was looking for an upgrade that will allow me to continue my artwork, media editing, and video gaming, I wanted something that I can SLI upgrade to later as well as capping out my performance now. And I found just that in this card. This allows me to run at mostly high graphics, not max graphics, on my current games while substantially increasing the number of graphical design patterns I work on in my art projects. I am very satisfied with this product and it's price. Bought product near Christmas 2010. If any problems come up later I'll come back to add to this review. If not, consider that it's a solid stress test. My system has 950W power, liquid cooling on CPU/Mobo, decent case, and 3GB of ram. Mobo (nForce 680i) is from 2007.
Amazing Card for the Price11/21/2010
Bought two of these guys to put in a gaming machine for a client...all i can say is WOW. These cards shine with all content, but exceed when it comes to DX11 programs and games. The bad news? Heat and power draw...make sure you have a nicely ventilated case and a sturdy PSU to handle these cards. For the SLI rig I went with 950w.
