Hi,
So basically right now I have an EVGA Nvidia Geforce 8800GTS 640MB. It is a damn good card plays most of my games at 1080p resolution with most of the things maxed out with good frame rates. I just can't really use AA and some other things. However I am really thinking of upgrading to a DX11 card and really can't find benchmarks comparing these two cards. If I buy an Nvidia Geforce GTX465, will I notice a significant performance improvement?...basically the question is: Is the GTX 465 MUCH more powerful than the 8800GTS 640mb or just a little? Thank you for any help.

This should be an easy one. :)  The 8800GTS 640MB was beat out by the 8800 GTS 512MB, which was beat out by the GTX 260, which is beat out by the GTX 465.

Performance wise, I think the 8800GTS 640MB was somewhere between the 8800GT and the ATI 4850.

Okay so I can safely say that its a good investment and the GTX 465 will give me a really big and noticeable jump in performance? I need opinions :)

It is a big jump, though personally, I would save the money to get a 470. Or, if you do not insist on staying with Nvidia then an ATI 5850.
The 465 was the card created to outshine the ATI 5830...but the 5830 was already a fairly unpopular card anyway, so having a card to compete and beat it was a somewhat redundant exercise. Given the price of the 465 you are better off with an ATI 5850. So, if you want to stick with Nvidia then save for the 470

Either save and go for the 470 or make the smart choice and get a 5850 ;)

its actually below that and performs closer to the 9600GT, which OC a lot better.

Well I really don't need the 470. I just need something with DX11 that is nvidia and that beats the 8800GTS so i am getting something thats considerably more powerful. Although I will consider the 5850 :) . I just wanted to know if the GTX465 was a significantly more powerful card.

Yeah, a 465 is significantly more powerful. An 8800GTS 640 is generally below an 8800GT. I as well say to go for a 5850 :D . If you have two PCI-E slots, you can keep your 8800GTS on for PhysX, though you will need a good PSU to handle both the GTS and the 5850

Nah, few games support physx, I don't need that, I will just toss my 8800gts in the garbage or sell it for a few bucks on ebay. I just need a solid GPU that has DX11, is powerful, and is able to run on my 850watt PSU. And a 5850 or a GTX465 seem to be perfect candidates for the job so i'll have to decide.

^Wait so will the 460 be more powerful or less powerful than the 465?

And since the website says it will be priced at $250...the 465 already costs that so will the 465 go down, stay the same, or go up in price?
