Zotac GeForce GTX 465 Summary
As for the specific GeForce GTX 465 we have tested today, the graphics card from Zotac is a copy of the reference sample, differing from it with the stickers only. The product comes in robust and pretty-looking packaging and has all the accessories necessary for using it. However, our sample was prone to overheat and, consequently, was very noisy. We don’t know if all other versions of GeForce GTX 465 behave like that, too. Anyway, if you want to buy a GeForce GTX 465 for some reason, the Zotac card will be a good choice.
