Newegg has a EVGA 450 on sale for about 90.00 after rebate...
How is that compared to the 460 card as far as crunching goes ?

Model Number = 01G-P3-1452-TR GEFORCE GTS 450 ( Fermi ) 1Gig , 128 bit GDDR5

Reason I am asking is My ATI 4670 won't run WU's by it's self... something to do with 128 work unit size...
So with My duel core cpu , I am still only able to crunch 2 WU's at a time...
any Cheap suggestions ?


Its not even close. The 460 is a SETI monster compared to a 450, especially the 768mb one which is incredibly overclockable. Ive been getting them for less than $100 after MIR

I run my GTX460-768 at 810/1620/1800. It was maintaining a RAC of around 12k.
It is currently in my other machine while I wait for my HD5830 to come back from RAM.
It was replaced by a GTX560-1024.

I've been running an ASUS ENGTX460 DirectCU TOP/2DI/768MD5 for 3 months solid 24/7.
My RAC has been around 14k to 15300 . . . until today I was using Lunatics .37...
I just loaded up .38 & I'm interested to see how it works out.

This is on my "HTPC/TV" PC, so it does double duty recording my TV shows and crunching BOINC/Seti.
I don't bother to over-clock but this card already runs at 700MHz/1400MHz.

I keep seeing a Sparkle Refurbished for $100 that looks tempting... I've generally had good luck with refurbs . . . Pre-disastered . . . at least you get some sort of warranty...

Another thing I've been thinking about is one those GTX 465s . . . but that's another story.


Why a 465? They only have 18 more cores, run way hotter, and aren't as overclockable.


I can buy them cheaper . . . The other thing, on start-up BOINC says my GTX460 can do 627 GFlops, the GTX465 in my other PC can do 855 GFlops.
(The GTS450 in that PC with the GTX465 can do 435GFlops.)
Yes I know those are estimates... but it's interesting to figure the possibilities.

Besides the 465 only get about 7 or 8 C hotter than my 460's...

If you can get a refurb the 460's are hard to beat but the new ones are getting to be kind of ridiculous hovering around $160 . . .
. . . rebates are a lie, at least for me... I ALWAYS get screwed out of rebates.

I have a AMD X6 1090T with two GTX 460. Average credit a day 38,353. No overclocking on cpu or gpu. About to buy a Gigabite Assasin and install four individual NO SLI GTX 460 and see what happens. Also, I am using Lunatics.
