Going from 8800gts 640mb to GTX 460 ?

I am on a 1360 x 768 resolution and am going to sell my old components for the money to buy a GTX 460, is the upgrade worth it or could i get a cheaper GPU that is a good upgrade , seeing that my resolution doesn't require a fast GPU.

I have to install the new GPU on the sly since my parents don't want me touching the computer lol. I was also thinking of the 550ti since has new shaders and is low on power. I do have corsair cx 500w.

Note: My main reason for upgrading is because canyourunit.com shows that i need new shader to run defiance.

  1. Forget the 460, get a GTX 650 Ti, at least as fast, and usually faster than a 460, while being less power-hungry and cooler-running.

    -EDIT-
    Here are some relevant benchmark results.

    I forget to add i have a budget of £75 MAX, i guess you should say i should wait till i get a job and then buy something like the GTX 650 ti ? I got no job am afraid and wish i had :(.
