    Default how is the nvidia geforce gtx 460?

    i am getting a new computer from ibuypower, and it comes with a nvidia geforce gtx 460 video card and i read reviews, but they dont say anything but how it is compared to Nvidieas previous videa cards, which i know nothing about. So anyways, i am looking to play games like Crysis 2 without lag (on at least normal settings ). The model of computer i am getting is http://www.ibuypower.com/Store/Ship_...el_Core_i7_RTG, so i was wondering if anybody knew about this computer, how good it would be, how long it would last without upgrades, ect. Thanks

    Crysis 2 doesn't have "normal" settings. High, very high, extreme. I don't think it would run Crysis 2 very well, but would run Rift fairly well.

    I use a gtx 460, and I run everything maxed out, except shadows. But I don't like shadows. I'm usually at 58-60 fps, sometimes down to 40 during big invasions with alot of people around.

    if my gtx 260 can run the original crysis on max settings with 4x anti aliasing and 1400x900 resolution a gtx 460 sure as hell should be able to run crysis 2....Crysis 2 doesnt really look that great imo compared to the first.

    If you are getting a GTX460 get the MSI Hawks or Hawk Talon Attacks. I am really happy with my 2 overclocked Hawks

    What type of scaling are you getting? Can you give and example of you fps with 1 460 vs 2? I want to get my wife a second 460 but am afraid the performance gains will not be worth it. Thanks!

    Default gtx 460m

    I run a gtx 460m on my alienware m17x r3 and play crysis 1&2 on the highest settings but shadow is on low or off and I play in 3d and that drops fps a little

    If you're buying now and it has to be NVidia, go for one of the new GTX 550/60/70Ti cards. They're competitively priced while being very good. Much better than any of the 4-- cards due to better power and heat management.

    She already have a 460 so that is what I am wondering. From what I have read 2 460's should be a fair bit faster than a 560 which i have in my rig. Just not sure if they will be in Rift as she only plays Rift.

    Crysis 2 is a console port. It's not hard to run.

    I ran Crysis 2 no problem on it. All graphics pumped up to max, didn't notice any screen tear or low frame rate or anything. Just fine.

    Yep, I run twin 460's crossfired, even during a major rift with 100 peeps around, i can still pull over 50 fps.
