    Just NO... $50 while working a $20 rebate... for a refurb that's below the a GTX650Ti or a 7770!

    Do yourself a favor pay $19 more for that Asus 7770 and pick it up monthly on the elctrical bill.

    BUT if you already have a GTX-460 (as I do) and want to do SLI (as I want to), this is perfect! bought.

    Yea I grasp the attraction of the low cost, and deduced improvement being enticing; although, honestly at this point it's a little late for those to be any Bell at the Ball...

    Think through to a year from now you'll have two cards that might at best elicit $25 apiece. I would've steered you to C-List your GTX460 right now for $40-50, and moved to a GTX650Ti Boost or GTX660 either are in the relm of 20-25% faster than those in SLI. As good as those Fermi's were they're so inefficient as judged by Kepler... today those in SLI are just poignant.

    I'd have to disagree. I have benchmarked my gtx 460 2win and it would smoke a 650ti, granted it is power hungry but In the SLI setup I'm on par with a 580. So for $50 if you already have one go for it. Heck as long as your PSU can handle it you could buy 2 for $100.

    I agree with Scorpio (although rebate is only one per customer). There is more value to old tech and at this low entry point, you don't leave much room for continued depreciation. The whole thing about electric bills is a joke. Why would you pay more now for a lower performing card (the HD 7770) to save electricity? That's like a dollar or two a month if that. Just turn off your computer when you're not using it? It's OOS anyway and I'm in for one. Yay to 256-bit version and 1 year EVGA warranty.

    I do want to add that the only benefit of the HD 7770 is that it comes with a standard HDMI port, where the GTX 460 refurb only has the mini HDMI port.

    Might have been a little careless on such percentages'. The 20-25% would be for a GTX660Ti or today GTX 760. I'd say GTX 460 1Gb's in SLI vs. just a nice GTX660 OC is still ahead 12-18% not to mention any SLI issues.

    Ah, the 7770 offers improved performance for what was $19 more, while its' efficiency is nothing to discount... At idle and under gaming GTX 460 1Gb sucks double the power. So in reality yes it's not too many months (a little more a half a year) and the $19 is recouped in your monthly bill.

    As I said... I understand allure and temptation, but at this point injecting more money into what is 3 year old technology... also seems futile. I’d be saying the same thing about some 5850. It's expired and that was my opinion.
