    Exclamation GTX 460 768 vs GTX 280

    Couldn't find a straight answer so far

    The reason i ask is because i had an evga gtx 280 but since it died they gave me a sparkle gtx 460 (the 768 one) as a replacement at the store i bought the 280.

    While at stock it might loose in some games and win in others overall it should be somewhat comparable, plus 460 would overclock much higher than any 280/285, so it should give it an edge in the end.

    Depending on the use their performance is about on the same level. I agree that when 460 is overclocked, it will surpass the 280 OC in most scenarios. It runs a lot cooler and it is more future-proof. I believe you got a good deal, although if I were you I would bargain for some other brand (different than Sparkle) and if possible with 1GB frame-buffer instead of 768. But in any case even Sparkle 460 768 is a good match for the 280.
