It performs great, runs nice and cool, and is amazingly quiet.
Philip H. Li
Definitely a great buy if you don't want to spend a lot to get great performance, in not only games but video editing as well!

Fan runs fast and stays quiet, and it as well as its bearings are very durable.

This is about the smoothest running video card I've had in a long time. The past 6 years ATI has been my exclusive video card manufacture starting with the ATI X800 pro through the Radeon 1GB 4800 VC. After about 2 years with my 4800 it was starting to get long in the tooth with some of the newer titles this year. I originally wanted to go with ATI's 5850 model but the increase in price and high temps turned me off from ATI's products. I looked at Nvidia's GTX 470 VC but like the 5850 high temps, price, and power consumption turned me off. I was going to settle on the 5850 until this card came out, much better FPS per dollar, cooler temps, lower power consumption, and better over clocking abilities made this purchase a no brainer.
Pros
Cheap for what you get in performance, easy to install and very stable drivers at this point. Went from 48 FPS on my 4800 in Dirt 2 to 74 FPS over clocked. Speaking of overclocking I pushed the core to 800 MHZ, shaders to 1600 MHZ, and memory to 3900 MHZ stable with low temps around 65C playing Crysis. In terms of performance over clocked it performs on par if not a little better than the 5850 depending on what game and probably about 10 percent behind the GTX 470 which is not bad for cards that cost $50-100 more. Biggest reason why I got this card is because of 3D displays coming out in the near future something you can't get fully using ATI/AMD products.
Cons:
1st, Nvida's control panel is sloppy and slow, while the drivers so far has proven to be stable I can't stand how unresponsive Nvida's control panel is. 2nd reason why I switched to ATI only the past 6 years was card failures from Nvidia. My Gefore 2 MX, Gefore 4 TI 4400, and Gefore 6600 GT all failed in 8 months or less, not good when you are paying $300 plus for some of those cards.

This is an amazing budget card. First a little background. nVidia's 400 series has a reputation for running extremely hot. The 470 and 480 were released, based on the GF100 processor, and although they offered great performance, they were expensive, high end parts, and they ran really hot. They tried to create a budget card, the 465, by taking a 470 and cutting some of its processing power, but the result was a crappy, still hot card.

Then nVidia released the 460, based on a new processor (GF104) and new design, and it was an instant winner. It ran nice and cool, and with a little bit of overclocking, could easily beat the much more expensive 465 cards, while still running much cooler and sucking less power.

The MSI 460 GTX is a great card, using the awesome 460 chip. It performs great, runs nice and cool, and is amazingly quiet. Reviewers have shown that this card can overclock just as well as any other, although I haven't had the need to yet simply because the card runs everything I play amazingly smoothly.

One common complaint with this card, and other cards with similar heatsink designs, is that the hot air isn't vented out of the case, but rather is allowed to recirculate inside the case. Honestly, this isn't a problem, and is actually a pro for me. A lot of reviews and tests have shown that graphics cards with vented exhausts tend to be significantly louder, and may not necessarily offer improved cooling. Combined with a case that has great airflow (I'm using an Antec Nine Hundred Two), this should not be an issue ever, especially on a card that runs this cool.

Material construction: *****
- Military grade components are manufactured to higher thermal tolerances than reference version.
- Heavy heatsink efficiently dissipates thermal energy even when card is under maximum stress.
- Durable board, quality component work, solid connectors.
- Fan runs fast and stays quiet, and it as well as its bearings are very durable.

Driver availability/compatibility: *****
- OEM and current Nvidia drivers are stable with this card right out of the box; no need to spend days researching which driver(s) to use for which applications and/or Operating Systems. Nvidia finally perfected a hardware design that's flexible enough to work and perform EXCELLENTLY with the vast majority of supported drivers - contrary to the past, in which only a handful worked at all without severe glitches, and even fewer offered good performance on top of that. This card series continues to open the high-perf Nvidia market to inexperienced users... without setting them up for catastrophic failure.
- Fully DX11 capable.

Overclocking potential: *****
- Slight overclock out of the box per manufacturer; easily overclockable to near 1ghz with air cooling only, due mostly to the best stock heatsink and fan on any video card today (combined with the fact that the 460 chip runs very cool relative to others offering the same level of performance). Decent overclocking utility included with product - even inexperienced users should be able to figure it out, provided they take it in small steps.

Multi-gpu scalability: *****
- 256bit card scalability is off the charts; running two of these cards in SLI, I have been unable to force a drop in framerates below 40-60 in the highest-demanding games currently available.
