Nvidia’s eagerly awaited GTX 460 is off to an early start. Thanks to a couple of retailers who chose to jump the gun, the card is already available in some European markets. German e-tailer Compuland is offering a reference Sparkle card for €199 and it has five of them in stock. You can get them here.
Not to be outdone by their northern neighbors, Austrian retailer it-markt has a couple of Gainward cards in stock. The cards are selling for €245, which doesn’t sound too bad considering we are talking about the 1GB version with a 256-bit bus. The 768MB version is selling for €205.
Bear in mind that these are early listings, but the prices sound right. Also, there’s just a few cards in stock and they could sell out quite soon, so if you’re eager to get one stop reading this and go get your credit card.
