My Motherboard is compatible with Sapphire Radeon HD 4870 1GB. Is it compatible with Club 3D GeForce GTX 460?

This is my old Sapphire Radeon HD 4870 below

This will be my new GPU below

I am getting new GPU because when I use my old GPU I get display driver crashes, white blocks, black screens, rainbow screen, blue blocks etc.

you seem to have forgot to tell us what make and model your motherboard is... we may be good but were not psychics..

it has a 760g chip set so yeah your fine to choose any card you wish. even pci-e gen 3 (pci-e 3.0) compatible cards will work as there backwards compatible with gen 2 (pci-e2.0)
the only limitation may be that the motherboard is crossfire only in that case you wont be able to run an sli setup but it wont affect single card setups from nvidia.

you will however need to do a minimum of a repair install 1s you install the new card to reconfigure the hardware abstraction layer (you can do it within windows but its not easy for most pro's never mind the enthusiastic amateur). you notice i say minimum, as the preferred option is a fresh install to ensure maximum stability and compatibility.

1 last thing the 460 isnt much of an upgrade from the 4870 maybe 3-5 fps on the same settings you already likely run, and thats assuming the 4870 isnt bottlencked already by the am3 cpu your running, which is likely if its not the amd 6000+ or better. so may not give any improvements at all.
so let me know what cpu you intend paring it with.

you should be ok then... although i wouldnt go much stronger with the gfx as the single thread performance of the athlons inst great so would cause a reduction in performance with games that only use 1-2 threads.
you may also want to get a decent cooler for it as you my need to overclock at some point.
