Powerful Card, Runs Quiet
Great Card, more than enough for what I needed it to do, just wish the price I paid for it was better

Great mid-range card for the games I play
Was a good card while it lasted.
update  - RMA with MSI seems to be going well, so not a big deal that the card died. MSI Webpage shows replacement has been shipped.
Had to RMA after 4 months
Worked great for 4 months. Purchased it to replace a 5770.

Suddenly after between 3 and 4 months of use my system became unstable with graphics glitches. Sometimes the driver would "restart and recover" but eventually the system would crash completely.

Did a fresh Win 7 Pro install and installed a new power supply but same symptoms. My old 5770 working fine while I wait for replacement.

Overall I am still pleased with the card and with the RMA service from MSI.

I didn't tough with this card and my i7 2600k I could run all the existing game at the moment with max settings. Didn't even overclock and all my game are running at least at 40-50 FPS (I mainly play First person shooter game )

Price, core and memory clock, 3d nvision ready, quiet.
This card is awesome for this price. I can play all my games at high resolution without any problems.

This card is awesome for this price. I love it. I can play all my games ( including metro 2033) at high without any problem.

I had a 9800gtx+ before ( i use for physx now) and i get insane FPS in my favorite game: batman Arkham asylum. Arround 80 FPS max setting in 1280x1024.

My rig is:
Core 2 Quad Q6600 G0
Cooler master Hyper 212+ push/pull
4GB DDR2 800MHz corsair
Asus P5Q pro turbo
Antec EarthWatts 650w 80+ bronze
Western digital caviar black sata 3GBs -- 750GB
Cooler Master HAF 932
Two 19inch monitor, LCDs and a 720p 26inch TV

This is the best bang for the buck card for a high end setup.

- Awesome performance.
- Great overclocking capability.
- Efficient cooling.
- Price is still a bit high, pick it up when it's on sale.
This is a great card, I picked it up after my EVGA card died on me and I needed a replacement right away. It was on sale so I jumped at it quick, and I'm glad I did. The overclocking capability on this card is great -- you can push it quite far if that's your sort of thing. I've been gaming for over 6 hours now and it's only a little warm to the touch.

I'm averaging over 100 FPS in WoW, with all graphics absolutely maxed out. In the most extreme battles with hundreds of players nearby, it sinks to around 35 FPS, which is still pretty amazing to me. Haven't tried any other games on it yet, but I've got high expectations. Definitely recommending this card if it's on sale.

Easy to OC
Runs cool
the price
It was more then what i wanted to pay but i am glad i got it.
I have it OCd right now and the temps are still at 37C.
Makes my old card look like an oven

- High quality card, possibly the best brand for 460, overclocking beast
- The 1GB 256 bits memory makes this card far superior than the 756MB 192 bits version
- $250 is way overpriced on NCIX
- Rarely goes on sale, while the 756MB 192 bits version can be bought below $150 almost all the time
- Bad reputation for MIR
Awesome card. However I still feel the price is a bit high (even thought I got mine for $180). Cyclone is a really good cooling design so if this card goes on sale don't hesitate to pull the trigger.

Experience: 5 Months
solid performer especially when OCed.
none to report todate
Some personal real world data for anyone looking for a midrange card. I've had this card for 5 months now OCed to core 850 MHz
shader 1700 MHz
memory 2000 MHZ
My max temp reached with 99% gpu core load was 65C with a fan speed running 65%. Some games played are BFBC2, COD Black Ops, and Tropico3. I want to get another not for video performance as much as I want to take some of the load off of my cpu. All these games have all four cores of my 920 running at 99%.

Comment: The MSI GeForce GTX 460 is both cool and quiet while still giving excellent performance.
Posted by: BernardP @12/08/10
Comment: MSI has done a good job with their implementation ... the fastest GeForce GTX 460 card that we tested so far.
Posted by: ninurted @08/28/10
Comment: a truly lovely card... not as silent as the 768MB model... tremendous overclocking potential... at say US$235 this card would be pure sex
Posted by: ninurted @08/28/10
Comment: Builds upon the reference design, bringing a factory overclock, voltage tweaking, low noise, and impressive temperatures to consumers who are looking for something extra.
Posted by: ninurted @08/28/10
Comment: MSI have taken this core design and turned it on its head, offering not only a card which has a better cooler, faster clocks and lower noise levels, but one which manually overclocks to levels we previously thought impossible.
Posted by: ninurted @08/28/10
Comment: Overclocked up to what seems like its natural operating point, at 850 MHz on the core, it swept the field in its market segment.
Posted by: ninurted @08/28/10
Comment: (from review) - The MSI N460GTX Cyclone graphics card comes factory overclocked and has tons more headroom left in it that can be easily unlocked with the MSI AfterBurner overclocking software utility.
Posted by: IC9 @08/05/10
Comment: More performance than the 768MB Cyclone and the same fantastic cooling.
