Spend the extra $10 and get the 1GB 256-bit EVGA GTX460. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130570

Good advice here. It's only $10 more.

I would agree with you

but I like the fact that you get a lifetime warranty upon registering with the card I selected, vs the card you showed me only having a 2year warranty.

and I'm not someone who buys GFX cards every 2 years.

Lol, after 3 or 4 years its time to upgrade anyway. If you take care of it and dont OC it to it's max then you should be fine for years to come.but seriously spend the extra $10.
