The GTX 460 comes in three retail flavors, the original 768Mb and 1Gb card, and the newer SE version. All are based off the GF104 Fermi core, with the 1Gb being the best performer. Obviously the 768Mb card has reduced memory and a lower memory controller bit count, while the SE has its core processor count reduced. Any of these cards are arguably better than the older GTX 465, which featured a cut down GF100 core, unless you were lucky and got one that could be flashed to GTX 470 spec. Despite being replaced by the 560 Ti however, with support for DirectX 11 and hardware tessellation the GTX 460 cards may be your best bang for the buck entry into the Fermi market.
