Best solution ct1615 a c 235 U Graphics card September 29, 2010 1:44:59 AM you would be looking at a 35% increase, that's a good step up. my question would be why? the GTX 260 is still a solid card at 1680x1050 resolution or below.

The difference is though closer to 20% jyjjy a c 377 U Graphics card September 29, 2010 2:55:36 AM rolli59 said:The difference is though closer to 20%For these specific cards at stock that is true but you should factor in overclocking as well. I doubt the GTX 260 would get all that much over the factory OC but the Hawk should be able to go up another 150mhz or so. cascan07454 September 29, 2010 11:50:34 AM ct1615 said:you would be looking at a 35% increase, that's a good step up. my question would be why? the GTX 260 is still a solid card at 1680x1050 resolution or below. http://tpucdn.com/reviews/MSI/GTX_460_HAWK/images/perfrel.gif Well I am running at 1920x1080. cascan07454 September 29, 2010 11:51:57 AM Looks like upgrading is worth it after all. cascan07454 September 29, 2010 9:05:46 PM Best answer selected by cascan07454. mattimeo005 September 29, 2010 9:15:28 PM Not to mention the HAWK comes with 2 free games right now edit: when bought from Newegg From pure performance standpoint, certainly the 460 is worthy (possible 1ghz core OC) , but it also runs cooler and much quieter than the 260, so that's also something to consider.
