GTX 260 to 460

I have an GTX 260 (specifically the 896-p3-1257-ar). I was looking at my EVGA, and noticed my step up is good for another 10 days. Now the only 460 I can get is the 768-P3-1360-TR, which would cost me 128 MB of RAM and 31.5 GBs bandwidth, but I would gain GDDR5 and 120 cores, plus a faster clock and RAM speed.

The step up would cost me $30 or so, and include Just Cause 2. Will I actually see any gain between the cards, or will losing the bandwidth kill the benefits.

Intel C2Q Q 9450, Asus P5N-D (Nvidia 750i), Corsair TX 750.

The "TR" designation on the GTX 460 means it doesn't have EVGA's lifetime warranty. Something to consider. The ones that end in "AR" do. Is the a lifetime model available for the step-up? Should only be $10 more.

Wow thanks. I know this will annoy a few poeple, but it's a no-go without the lifetime warrenty. I re-checked, and the only thing available with the "AR" designation is the 480, and its alittle pricey. Not to mention the step up model isn't one of the "EE" models.
