My PSU

OCZ stealth stream 600w and it's 2 years old.

My doubt: is the gtx 460 1gb worth the extra 75$??

I'll mostly play Starcraft 2, FFXIV, Diablo III.

Thanks for the replys.

What you think about ZOTAC graphic cards, Amazon has the ZOTAC GTX 460 1gb for 219.99$

Saphire radeon 5770 for 145$ - XFX 5770 for 160$

wich brand for ATI or Nvidia should I buy?

I'm asking this since I'm on a budget and I'm not from US so It is a little bit difficult to buy PC parts online from Venezuela ( where I live).

A friend of mine is returning from miami on sep 22th.. so I have till that day to buy and ship the card to his house.

I really appreciate any help!

Thanks.
