I have this exact card in my HTPC and I love it. It's not loud, it runs Borderlands with everything maxed out at 1080p. It handles LAV CUVID and any other HTPC related CUDA workload without breaking a sweat. I bitstream pretty much every codec under the sun to my AVR. Plus it never gets too hot even when gaming (which is good as it sits in a hot cupboard).
I'm very glad I bought it. My only minor complaint would be that it has a Mini HDMI port, and putting a Mini HDMI -> HDMI converter infront of a 30ft HDMI cable is not ideal.

Ehh.. was just about to pull the trigger on building a new system with a 560 ti then saw this.. how much diff is 1gb vs 768mb? kinda new at this. also kinda like the option of SLIing 560 ti's in the future but idk this makes me think.. was gonna pay $233 for the 560 ti. also would a 650w PSU be ok for SLI 460s? kinda a dealbreaker if its not
Personally, can't bear the heat or the noise two of them paired in sli would generate.
The GTX 460 is a very cool card to run and I idle around 28 and can be between 55 and up to 70 when gaming in SLI. BFBC2 hits 70 and my only game that does atm. This is OC at 850 so at stock temps would be less. Noise is not a problem unless I raise the fan speed myself which I do since I OC the card. The GTX 560 ti does run a little cooler but not by much and it costs a lot more for almost the same performance.
