NVIDIA's mid-range Fermi card, the GeForce GTX 460, was released today. It may be just the card they needed to get back into the game.
cool, might buy it to replace my 5770
About time. Hopefully this card proves to be a good investment, unlike the 465. I've been looking for a new card or two for my folding rig.. this maybe my answer.
Not sure how it would stack up against a 5830 or 5850 for folding though; I believe the 5800 series have far more stream processors than the GTX 460
Should do pretty well tbh. I was folding on my old 260, same priced card. The problem was the heat, sure the gpu stayed well within norms but after a few hours the room got toasty. Even in my Antec 1200 it would be 10deg F warmer or more in the room. Been waiting on a good nVidia card around this price range to come out. If it proves worthy... I'll get it(or two). Go go liquid cooling! If Evga comes out with an H2O edition it's pretty much a guaranteed buy for me.
