I was really surprised to see the performance increase we got from the GTX 465. I was hoping to see the big performance increase we saw from the GTX 470, but wasn't sure if we would get it or not. The good news is that the 700MHz+ core clock did wonders for our overall performance.
What it did ultimately, though, was wonders for the value of the card with it taking top spot; well, equal top spot with the Galaxy GTX 470 we looked at recently.
It's important to know that we didn't have the voltage adjust ability; with that we could end up with another 30MHz + on the core which would push our TVR number higher and let the model climbing even higher up the TPR graph.
The GTX 465 is a great model I feel. Its price is good, its OC potential seems to be fantastic and as I mentioned before, it isn't plagued with the same heat, power and noise issues that the original GTX 400 series plagued us with.
All these are so important as well when you're getting into that more mainstream market. NVIDIA might've gotten off to a bit of a rocky start with the GTX 400 series, but the GTX 465 and the latest ForceWare 257 series drivers are not only a step, but a leap in the right direction.
It looks like the video card market is going to begin to start heating up again.
