Weekly Giveaway - MSI GeForce GTX 460 768MB Cyclone OC Video Card worth $209 USD (July 23 - July 31 2010)



http://images.tweaktown.com/news/1/6/16125_01.jpg

We have teamed up with MSI to giveaway one of its brand new GeForce GTX 460 768MB Cyclone OC video cards and it is worth $209 USD!

The MSI N460GTX Cyclone 768D5/OC video card is based on the newest GPU from NVIDIA and comes overclocked past stock speeds.

Its GPU core runs at an impressive 728MHz and it comes with 768MB of GDDR5 memory operating at a speedy 3600MHZ QDR. Shane Baxtor reviewed it recently and it scored our Editor's Choice award.


How to win?

For your chance to win one, all you need to do is BECOME A TWEAKTOWN FAN on Facebook! You will also have to post on the fan page and say:

You will need to reply to this thread and say that you have become a fan and if you are selected, we will ask for your name to check our FB fan page.

I don't know how to post a comment on TweakTown Wall on Facebook.. somebody.. help ? :)

I clicked on "Like", but no other option is available, I can't write anything... I don't get it..

there is a rectangular box there where you can post your message on the Tweak Town wall. It's at the top of the TT wall, near the word "Wall". :-)

The problem is that the "Like" button is always there, when I push it again it says: "You are already connected".... but as I go the my "Pages" in my Account to see what I became a fan of, TweakTown is not there! And therefore, there is no box available on the "Wall" where I can write something.

Maybe a bug with Facebook, but I don't know how to solve it :(

Hey, I have become a fan on Facebook. I just found this site yesterday when I was looking for reviews on video cards and I already love it. This card would be a great replacement for my current video card (consequently the reason I was looking at reviews yesterday). I need a replacement because my current card likes to overheat. For example, after playing Starcraft 2 for only 10-15 minutes my card reaches temperatures exceeding 110C. So please pick me because I'm really short on money and I need a new card. Oh, and TweakTown RULES!!!!

Well rats, I didn't win. But, that is ok there is always next time for me. But, seriously congratulations hamsteyr. That is a beast of a card for it's price especially if it is overclocked properly. Use it well!

Jason4eveR
08-03-2010, 08:08 PM
@hamsteyr: can you show us your rig when the card arrive? i want to see a rig with that card :D

Jason4eveR
08-03-2010, 08:10 PM
@trowgundam: i've read some reviews that if you overclock this card it can outperform the GTX 470, is it true? ???

hamsteyr
08-03-2010, 08:27 PM
Haha, thanks again :)

@Jason4Ever: Sure thing :) This is meant to upgrade my old 8800 GT on my pc back home :x and yeah, i read that volt modded this card can go a nasty 927 Mhz Core clock from the stock 675 and the starting 725 of the MSI OC

Interesting details here (http://www.guru3d.com/article/geforce-gtx-460-review/24)

Though i'm not sure about outperforming the 470...

This is the rig its meant to go into though i won't be able to get it in till i get home end of the year :x This is the Praetorian II :D

The Top fan above the Cooler Master Hyper N520 has actually been replaced with a Xigmatek 140mm White Case Fan but i don't have any pictures to reflect this :x

Jason4eveR
08-03-2010, 08:39 PM
@hamsteyr: nice rig you have their dude, btw what CPU cooler is that?

can i have your old 8800GT to be paired with my 9800GTX in SLI if you don't mind? joke only! hehehe :D

hamsteyr
08-03-2010, 08:44 PM
Thats the Cooler Master Hyper N520 :) I wanted to get the Hyper N620, but its kind of a bit too tall to fit into the CM Storm Scout without having to remove the side case fan i think :x

Lol O_o the 8800 GT can SLi with a 9800 GTX? Like SLi side by side or dedicated physics lol

Jason4eveR
08-03-2010, 08:48 PM
i don't know if the 8800GT can be SLI'ed with a 9800GTX but they have a same GPU which is G92 according to GPU-Z.

hamsteyr
08-03-2010, 08:50 PM
Thats very true, after all the 9800 is pretty much a rehash of the 8800 with an additional SLi Finger >_>

Jason4eveR
08-03-2010, 08:53 PM
the Cooler Master Hyper N520/N620 is a large CPU cooler, my CPU cooler is CoolerMaster Hyper 212+ with push and pull fan config but it's not that handsome as your cooler but it performs very nice. i wanna try that N520 also if there's available in my place :)

Jason4eveR

yeah, from 8800GT to 9800GT to 9800GTX and now GTS 250 hehehe :D

hamsteyr
08-03-2010, 08:57 PM
nVidia, masters of rehashing old chips into new products >.> lol At least the 460 is a damned fine product.

The 520 isn't THAT big, i was initially quite worried whether it would fit but the tech guy at the store said it would so.... I didn't wanna end up going back, installing it then find out i have to take the fans out.

Its hard to find what kind of fans would fit what kind of casing.

i don't know if the 8800GT can be SLI'ed with a 9800GTX but they have a same GPU which is G92 according to GPU-Z.

you can sli them but the slower card will handycap the performance

Jason4eveR
08-03-2010, 09:06 PM
@hamsteyr: what is the height of N520?

@fausto412: yes i guess the 8800GT has a 900 MHz memory clock while the 9800GTX has a 1100 MHz memory clock.

hamsteyr
08-03-2010, 09:09 PM
Says here its 122.35 x 102.5 x 141 mm ( L x W x H )

For me it fits just perfectly nicely in a CM Storm Scout, hence i'm sure a N620 wouldn't fit inside a Storm Scout without taking the fan off.

Jason4eveR
08-03-2010, 09:17 PM
is it a 120mm fan or 92mm?

hamsteyr
08-03-2010, 09:21 PM
It would be the 92mm fan. Its quite a capable cooler for its size. I'm looking at the V8 to replace the Freezer 7 Pro on my other pc though.

Jason4eveR
08-03-2010, 09:27 PM
i don't recommend you the V8, get the V6 instead :)

hamsteyr
08-03-2010, 09:31 PM
Really? I heard the V8 is pretty good. Whats the main difference? And why recommend one over the other?

Jason4eveR
08-03-2010, 09:34 PM
the V8 has only 1 120mm in the middle while the V6 has a 2 120mm push and pull fan on it and a kick ass face :) 2 is better than 1.

hamsteyr
08-03-2010, 09:37 PM
lmao, sorry that WAS the one i was referring to xD not the v8, the v6 GT hahahaha I was starting to wonder when you said that whether i got the model wrong

Jason4eveR
08-03-2010, 10:02 PM
hehehe :D better get the V6 if you plan to upgrade :) i wanted to buy the V6 but lack of funds because i'm still saving for my case modification hehe :D

btw, you can also try the Prolicatech Megashadow, it's an awesome cooler also :)

hamsteyr
08-03-2010, 10:04 PM
Says this item is no longer in production O_o Its a pretty tall cooler as well, i'm only running a Mid Tower, not a full tower >.< At most i plan to get a CM 690 II Advanced, but i don't think that'd fit in there. V6 GT Maybe i still have chance you see.

Jason4eveR
08-03-2010, 10:14 PM
looking forward for that :) i'm also planning about the Cooler Master 692 II but i'm satisfied now with my Thermaltake V3 :)
