Best buy GPU for gamers
PNY GeForce GTX 460

PNY GeForce GTX 460
Advantages: Price, DirectX 11 (future proof), getting great FPS in all 2010 games
Disadvantages: This card needs 2 six-pin power adapters from you PSU (power supply)
I purchased this GPU after using 9800GTX+ for two years. I've installed it flawlessly. It idles at decent temps, auto fan control actually works (unlike my 9800GTX+ which I upgraded from) and this card is very silent. Firstly you must install latest drivers from nvidia.com. This card improved my Windows Graphics score. Now I can play all 2010 games in fullHD with highest possible details, some of those games are even runing in DirectX 11. I am running Battlefield: Bad Company 2 on the highest settings in DirectX 11 mode with everything enabled and getting the same performance I was getting out of my 9800GTX+ running on low-medium settings with most of the stuff turned off in DirectX 9 mode. I must say that this card is more powerful, quieter and smalle than 9800GTX+. It fits my computer case perfectly. It actually made some free space within the case.
I am getting around 50-60 FPS for Battlefield: Bad Company 2 in fullHD resolution with 8 x AA, 16 x AF and HBAO
Cons: This card does need 2 six-pin power adapters from your PSU (power supply). Please note that the adapters connect on the back on the card, not the top. But, since this card is smaller than most of them, this should not be much of an issue for most of the people.
Summary: Great card for gamers looking for best buy.
