Galaxy GeForce GTX 460 Razor 1GB - Single Slot Gaming
Single slot cooler
Galaxy continues to innovate
The world of graphics cards has almost exclusively fallen into the world of dual-slot cooler designs - even the lower end options like the GTX 450 from NVIDIA and the HD 6850 use dual slot designs. It is a change that some have disdained as unnecessary and indicative of the overly expand power consumption of GPUs in general.
Back in November of 2009, Galaxy released a single-slot design of the GeForce GTX 260+ - the first of its kind and it helped set it apart from the crowd. In fact, even as recently as a few months ago I have gotten requests to sell this board as users are constantly on the lookout for a single slot solution for HTPC builds, SFF boxes, etc.
Well Galaxy is here to satisfy that need once again with a new single-slot graphics card in the form of a GeForce GTX 460 1GB and I think most users will find the results pretty impressive.

Because the heatsink is not in the same location centered over the PCIe connection, picking it up tends to throw you off. Once installed though, it's not an issue.
