Ok so I am looking to upgrade my current video card and had a question.

I am currently running

CPU-I7-920 not oc
Mo Bo-msi-x58 pro e
Ram-8GB Kingston hyper x DDR3 1600
Case-Thermaltake Element G
PSU-Cooler master 850w silent pro
Video Card palit gtx 260 core 216

I have been looking at the new evga gtx 460 1gb

My question is will that card be enough of a performance boost over my gtx 260 core 216 to warrant the upgrade and if not what are some recommendations.

Just using one or two benchmarks as an example, it's better yes but whether it's a worthy upgrade is something only you can really decide.

As an owner of Palit 260GTX (216) 896MB, I wouldn't bother! Though a diff architecture, sure, dx11 sure, but actual real world performance for a few FPS more...rather about what 10% performance more. I seriously wouldn't waste my money!
