Deal of the week: A quiet, 'overclocked' GeForce GTX 460 for $170

We already brought this up in the news earlier, but it really deserves to be in the deal post. In last week's deal of the week, we included a GeForce GTX 460 768MB graphics card priced at just $189.99 with a free trial of StarCraft II. We're handily beating that bargain this week thanks to Gigabyte's N460OC-768I, a "factory overclocked," custom-cooled GTX 460 768MB Newegg is selling for only $169.99 before shipping.

This isn't only an eye-popping deal on the graphics card; a Newegg promotion running until September 30 also lets you grab StarCraft II for $20 off if you purchase it together with the N460OC-768I. Getting a GTX 460 and a copy of StarCraft II would have set you back about $250 last week, but you only have to shell out $210 right now. Not bad, huh?

We looked at this Gigabyte card in our latest graphics roundup, and we found it to have by far the lowest noise levels of any card we've tested recently. That's an impressive feat considering that its GPU runs at 715MHz, a fair bit quicker than the stock 675MHz.
