    AFAIK it only adds support for 560 Ti, nothing more.

    probably this driver are the best for GTX460 users because it is from 560Ti

    @Arctucas: What's your point? A modded INF and that won't mean ****.

    Merely confirming the the assertions made by previous posters, hopefully that is causing you no undue consternation.

    I dont need inf, but could you upload a inf for others, otherwise we will have lots of "inf anyone?" posts, which take unnessary space. So plz?`;)

    Thank you OP for posting these.

    What are the eVGA cards you have in SLI? Just wondering? ;)

    Ah ok, thx. What kind of temps you got on the top card? My first card gets so damn hot when benching, easily reach 90-100c if pushed for long times. I got Gigabyte´s OC versions, I think maybe I should have taken two with the original coolers that vents the hot air out?? ;)

    Install trough device manager works fine. For me installer worked on my HTPC with my 9800GT for physx, but on my desktop with 2 GTX460 I had also issues with the installer? Dont know why, but It installed fine through device manager (as it usually does).

    Edit: check and see if youre 266.58 is international or english, so both are same between .58 and .66.

    @HaZe303,

    When I first got these cards last August, the top card would idle around 40°, the bottom card around 36°. Loaded with Furmark the top card would run about 70°, the bottom at approximately 65°.

    However, around Thanksgiving I noticed the top card began getting warmer (45° idle/80° load). I swapped positions but the same card was significantly warmer than the other.

    After several days, I found that the card would reach 99° in Furmark after 45 seconds, so I RMAed the card.

    Just before Christmas, the second of the two original cards began to exhibit the same behavior.

    I am loathe to RMA the second card because the replacement eVGA sent me is not even the same card (as in it is a different model, even though they say it is identical... but, I digress) and it will not overclock anywhere near as well as the original two cards did. Yes, I realize there is no guarantee of overclockability, before anyone feels compelled to point that out, I am fully aware of that point.

    The other original card works just fine, other than getting (in my opinion) too hot, as I see mid-90°s in games, although it idles reasonably cool (currently at 34° with an ambient room temperature of ~18°).

    Anyway to answer your question, the external exhaust may or may may not be beneficial. Honestly, I believe it may help keep internal chassis temperatures down, but it is not anymore effective (and maybe less so) than the non-external models for actually cooling the GPU.

    You said your fps went up but you didn't say what driver you were using before this one.
