All 460s are 2-slotted. Aside from that, they were my first choice before I noticed how much power they sucked up.

Why single slotted in particular? Room concerns?

The straight answer would be XFX's 1GB single slot 5770. In fact, it's the only option from this generation as far as I know. Powercolor also offers one but they can go fuck themselves. I have had the worst experience with their customer service. Three consecutive RMAs and every one of those 4890s were crap. Heatsink contact wasn't even lapped. XFX, I haven't had any of their products but I hear all good things. Double lifetime warranty is also a good resale incentive down the line, or good incentive for you right now if you can find one second hand.

Power consumption is about same as reference 5770s or a little less. Temperatures are little above reference but that's no surprise with limited heatsink room really and is apparently still very quiet under load.
