My experience with a GT460 hasn't been too stellar. If you enable the
screensaver, after blanking the screen it starts outputting error
messages as fast as the logging device can write them. When it goes
to suspend it goes into the WAIT mode, writing log entries every 3
seconds. Unfortunately it sometimes goes into WAIT even with the
screensaver disabled, but the screensaver method is quite repeatable.
It seems to take a power cycle to get the card working again once this
has happened, so for now at least, a GT460 seems to be unusable :-(.
Hopefully this will be fixed by 7001754, but I would treat any of the
higher end Nvidia cards with suspicion for now...
