Hands down this is the best deal I've seen for a 1GB 460, though I personally think the PNY XLR8 GTX 465 with Mafia 2 and Just Cause 2 for $168 was better than this, considering the lifetime warranty. Not opening up debate about 465 vs. (1GB)460 - though fundamentally different pieces of hardware, at this price range they're both excellent cards and an excellent value.
I'm not sure how much lower they can be discounted, though; I think what we're seeing with these awesome prices is a preemptive move to clear out inventory before the AMD cards potentially undercut them, which could force the cards to be liquidated at a loss. Obviously this is pure speculation on my part - I really don't care too much about the reasons, I'm just happy the prices are getting in line with reality!
And hooray for Amazon - to hell with waiting for shipping, I'd rather buy from them over the 'Egg any day of the week!
I got in on the GTX465 deal but the rebate was a PITA. I think it came out to $10 more overall (tax, a $5 free to receive the rebate faster) than this deal. I only got Mafia 2 since I ordered too early but ended up giving that away. It was a better deal but this isn't bad either.
In this case, we're unable to offer this item for the incorrectly posted price. Therefore, we've cancelled your order for this item.

Got the exact same e-mail for my order about 1 minute ago. I ordered mine the first time, about 2-3 weeks ago. I think all the people buying the card for the past 24 hours alerted Amazon to the price mistake. Thanks, guys, JEEZ.
[QUOTE=ancienterf;32924273]I hate it when people like you spew their uneducated opinions. The reason you sound ignorant is that although you're advocating the American ideal of a "self-made man" you then expose yourself as too stupid to think of an example of one. The difference between Zygrene and Donald Trump is that Trump was born into an elite ruling class family, and that for the last 50 years, upward mobility in the US has taken several generations.
You just darted at a wrong point, and I accept that donald "the boy with the silver spoon" is a wrong example,...so, let's try conan o or weird al or let's try you ancienterf. My point is,...get those brain cells and muscles busy to get this card or whatever you want. My family WAS poor in a third world country but they work their butts out to provide us what we needed and wanted. Now I'm giving back to them the fruits of their labor. Knowing that there are bums here in US just makes me cringe.
Going back to the topic, this deal is great for those who can wait. The price may fall next quarter but probably not at this price. Well. it's too late, it looks dead. Ohh...price mistake...hahaha =)
I hate it when somebody says this. Get out and work your butts out. The only difference between you and mr. trump is probably just the hair. Anyway, this deal keeps popping in and out of amazon, but the long wait is a big no-no for me. I got a Gigabyte OC GTX460 seating in my house and probably return it to Microcenter tomorrow and get this Asus from Newegg instead. The review and test result of this Asus is better than Gigabyte's.
I was just looking at the latest issue of MaximumPC, and they gave the Gigabyte GV-N460OC-1GI GTX 460 a 9/10, KickAss rating ($220 on Newegg). Unfortunately, they compared it to the 768mb Asus card with a 192-bit memory bus, rather than an "apples-to-apples" comparison with the Asus card in this deal.
Can you provide the link you found comparing the Asus to the Gigabyte?
UPDATE: Just looked, my order was canceled also. Disappointing that Amazon doesn't even offer a coupon or anything to make up for their mistake.
