Hello there, I was just wondering on your thoughts of whether it is worth upgrading to the GTX 460. I need a budget card which is DX11 compatible for playing the latest Prepar3d.

Thank you

I'd say your better off getting a newest series card, if possible the gtx 760 or a r7 260x or something, as the gtx 460 is still a decent card but older and nowadays the newest cards run cooler use less power etc and the gtx 460 is probably at the end of its lifetime considering its age.

Okay thank you for your answer but I really am on a budget. Is there any decent cards that go for less than £150? Thanks

No bro it is not worth it. U should get atleast 650ti boost/660, anything below is not worth upgrading to. 650ti boost is around $150.

There are lots of new cards around $150, you don't need one that's years out of date with low performance and high power consumption. Something like HD7750 ($100) or 7770 or 7850 or GTX650ti would be a big improvement. I initially got a 7750 to replace my 8600GT and it was 10 times more performance, 4 times more memory, whilst consuming less power and was half the price of the 8600GT 7 years ago.

Okay it looks like the 7790 is the best value for money.

How big of a performance boost is that over the 9800gtx+ and how is it compared to the 650ti boost?

Thanks
