Best Gaming Mid-Range Card

Having gone through the endless research on graphics cards recently for my upgrade, there seems to be many of us who can't blow over $200 on a card but the $150 range is doable (with the proper smoozing of companion unit). Within this mid-range, I found that the Nvidia GTX 460 card seems to be the top guy. Despite when you look at specs from the AMD cards in the same category (and a little above) and any of the other Nvida cards in the same category, the price/performance just can't be beat in games. I think it's strange that better spec cards do not perform as well as the GTX 460 but benchmark after benchmark show it keeps up or exceeds these consistently in games.

Now don't buy into the GTX 460 SE - this is an even cheaper version but has much lower specs then it's full blown brother and that card's benchmarks are what you would expect. I was just shocked at how much better the full 460 is.

It seems the next level up from the 460 range of cards adds at least $100 to the price so this at the moment is the top line mid-range card. If you are looking to get a new card soon, I do recommend the GTX 460 (full) card. New Egg you can get it around $120 after rebates. Frys in Austin only had the SE versions at about $200 range (really? WTF Frys).

Review

Pros
Performance per dollar

Tops or meets more expensive AMD/ATI cards in same general category FOR GAMES
Cons
If you want to do other things, like bitmining, then you probably want to look for an AMD/ATI card (but it will generally cost you a little more).
Do you recommend?
Yes
