GeForce GTX 465
With an estimated price of $279 the Galaxy GeForce GTX 465 is definitely a step down in cost from other GF100 parts on the market but it still places it in the same realm for comparisons. Our review will look at the GTX 465 in both single and dual-GPU SLI configurations as well as against the GeForce GTX 470 and the Radeon HD 5850. We will be curious to see how much of a performance drop occurs between the new GTX 465 and the GTX 470 considering the $70 price difference. For our AMD comparison the Radeon HD 5850 was the obvious choice as it is selling today at Newegg and others etailers for an amazingly similar $289.
