Hello. Ive been trying to decide whether or not too upgrade to the gtx 460 over my gtx 260. I am mainly interested in being able to max out the upcing shogun 2 totalwar (early 2011) because i am not sure my computer can max it. My current specs are: Amd phenom IIx3 720
gtx 260 896 mb (no oc)
4 gb ddr3 ram

Do you feel that this purchase is woryh it or should i wait till the game comes out for a price drop or possibly a new series from nvidia? Perhaps my current system is fine though.

Please let me know what you think.

The 460 is definitely no doubt an upgrade, but if the game doesn't come out for at least another 6-9 months, I would definitely wait on the upgrade so you can get the best deal.

Alright thanks man. I got the 260 right a few months before the 400 series came out which was a bit of a downer. I dont want tobdo the same thing again haha do you know when the next series might be coming?

No clue when the next series would be coming. I can venture a guess that it would be early 2011, but that's just a guess.

Well i understand your point but i think id rather get a graphics card right before the games release (6-9 months) so that in that way i can either get a cheaper 460 maybe even a 480 or perhaps a newer card
