    Here ya go.

    You will see a bit of a difference, you will gain DX11.

    I'm not sure its a big enough difference to warrent the upgrade however, only you can decide if that difference is worth it to you.

    If I was me, I wouldn't get anything less then a 5850/470 if I was upgrading from your current card.
  2. A GTX 460 1gb is approximately 25% faster than an HD4870 at stock. It can also OC a very large amount (30%+). It also uses much less power, especially at idle and is DX11. So I would say it is a worthy upgrade although holding off a few months for the rest of Nvidia's card and the HD6000 series is a decent idea if you aren't in a hurry.
