That power supply should be fine for either card. I replaced my 9800GTX+ ( same as a GTS250 ) with a GTX460 and it blows the old card away. Go with a 1GB GTX460 and you will be much happier.

you would not need a power upgrade, as the your current power supply can easliy support a gtx 460

Yes, when you're looking at Amperage on a PSU, you add up all of the 12v boxes, which for you would mean 32 amps available on the 12v rail.
