Windows 7: Few question about GTX460

Few question about GTX460

I am looking to buy GTX460 but I am not sure do I need better PSU and are there any heat issues with 460 ( do I need to add more powerful fan, currently I have 2 average fan installed on my case). And how good is it for watching BlueRay movies on Plasma TV?

PSU- Ultra LSP 650 watt
CPU- i5 Quad 2.67GHZ

Thanx in advance.

You're good to go, you have plenty of power, and you very likely won't need an extra fan, however, I always recommend installing one, if you can. If your case doesn't have an area for another fan, it will be fine, the GTX460 runs warm, but reasonable.

It will work very good for HD video, better than any standalone Blu-Ray player.

Thanks to a few good fellas here, I own one of these. I did buy a more powerful 120 mm intake fan just in case it did run warm. I also manually up the fan speed to a constant 65% and it stays relatively cool (around 60C on full load, 42C idle). Definitely go for the 1GB version you won't be disappointed.

GTX460 1GB to GTX670 2GB?
I can get a second handed Gigabyte 670 2GB for fairly cheap. Is it a decent upgrade? I know it's a bit foolish to ask.. But.. Any chance the GTX670 wouldn't be enough for GTA V? My PSU is FSP 700W 80GHN. It shouldn't be a problem, right? Thanks.

This new card is working okay for the most part, except that unlike my old card, which would send a signal to both my LED and CRT monitors during the BIOS run and after reaching desktop, this one only shows a black screen on the CRT until the desktop appears. I have tinkered with the Nvidia...

Frame stuttering on GTX460
Long story short my 8800GTS paralyzed (though not quite dead) on me. So I ordered a Asus ENGTX460. That ran fine for an hour or so, but then that paralyzed on me. So I RMA'd it, and got another ENGTX460. I've had it for a couple weeks and it still survives, but it seems to have some frame rate...
