that link didn't open mate BUT kingston/corsair/ocz/team or gskill any 1600mhz with cl7/cl8 timings will do. those are all quality products =)) if you oc that CPU to 3.6, i guess 1600mhz is what you need.

Yea, seconded. Palit is not a very good option. You can also try MSI's Cyclone 460GTX, deffo a good choice.

EDIT: Could be interesting to know what other games you play too.

best bang for your buck.

palit's in turkey are hard to find and more expensive than other brands.

is it becouse it's betteR?

or just expensive to rip customers like nvidia does? we'll never know!

errr, no they're not Aras, I own that card so I should know ;)

I run that card with MSI afterburner utility keeping the fan speed even lower as I insist on a quiet computer (speed ramps up with temp). I 'did' once read something about loud fan noise with this card before a bios fix, maybe that's what you've heard Aras? However now they're fine, and even better if you create a custom profile in afterburner instead of leaving the driver to control fan speed. Even with my card at 100% load for 10 minutes my temps don't go above 70c and that's with the fan speed at 55% speed. At that speed it's damn quiet.

My previous GPU was Palit too and found them to be great, custom made PCBs and coolers. Don't know what bad experiences you've had Hes? Only other GTX 460s worth thinking about are MSI cyclone like Hesitator said, however they don't do a version with such a big factory overclock so you've got to be happy doing it yourself. Also it costs £40 more than the Palit version. The Gainward GTX 460 GLH, that's very quiet and comes with the same overclock as the Palit. Nearly all other 460s I'm aware of are too noisy due to badly designed coolers.

850MHz POV aras? there website lists no such thing...only a stock 675MHz version, highest you can get a GTX 460 is around the the 830/840 mark if memory serves correct, so the highest factory OCs are between 800MHz and 820MHz.

I'd try and get the higher speed ram if you can, you could always trying buying from another place?
I've just replaced my XMS3 1333MHz corsair ram as even with CPU stock it was a little bit of a bottleneck for some tasks, and a huge bottleneck when overclocking...

Palit is kinda rare in Hungary. But since they hit the market here a couple years ago their products kept getting bad reputation and also retailers stopped ordering them. Had some friends in the pc parts wholesale and they had a lot of trouble with Palits. We bought some for company use and we also found them a bit rubbish in terms of noise and general build quality.

On the other hand I have to say that new ones look significantly better overall.
