To be honest, choose ANY card from 4 cards above randomly, you can maxed out almost everything at 1280x720. :) 
Let's get serious, do not get HD4870 or GTX260, that's an old tech, you'll better with HD5770 or GTX460, your choice, buddy.
GTX460 768MB is faster than HD5770, your PSU should be able to handle either card just fine.

The GTX 460 is easily the better/faster card but does need 2 6 pin connectors, usually you get a connector with the card to connect 2 Molex connectors together to make an extra PCIE connector.

What make and model is your PSU ?

Mactronix :)

I agree with the above. If your PSU supports the 460 it's a clear winner. We'll soon know when you post its specs.

Second to that, the 5770 is a solid card and would be ample for what you're looking for!

The difference between the 1GB and 768MB version is just around 500-800 INR. I cant believe you are not getting it just for that.

But anyways, at the resolution you mentioned, get a GTS450/HD5750 and you would still be well off and save the cash.

Also mention what brand of PSU it is?

The 1GB version of the GTX460 is one tier higher than the HD5770; the 768MB version is on the same tier: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-rad... more likely due to its increased buss width (256 vs 192 bits) rather than the extra memory.
As wa1 pointed out though, at that resolution any of those cards would be sufficient. If your PSU is not high quality, a HD5750 would also work well.

If you want to future proof a little bit if you decide to upgrade your monitor, see if you can get the GTX460 1gb to work with your power supply.
Otherwise, a gts450 or hd5750 will easily give you good play on your present monitor.

Very doubtful that that PSU would hold on to the GTX460 for more than 6 months of rigorous use. Advise you to change it along with your GPU.

Its not about the pins, power requirements. Its more about the brand. Zebronics is hardly a brand that could be considered safe for GTX460 type products.

For PSU only buy, Corsair, Seasonic, Antec, Silverstone. Its for the overall good of the computer.

Zebronics PSU are an acceptable (Pro/Platinum Series), but not with Economic Series.
Since your PSU only has one 6pin power connector then just get a card that only required 1x 6pin, like HD5750/HD5770/GTS450.
Those card is more than enough to maxed out almost everything at your resolution.

Gtx460 768 Mb is the best choice. If not buy the 5770.
I would not even consider buying anything else.

Also as others nave mentioned above you could buy a new PSU with the new card.

the ampere rating on your 6pin in essential. I am using a zebronics real watts 500 with a HD4770. Your PSU is not enough for the GTX460 and frankly speaking GTX460 is overkill for your resolution.. Get the HD5750 (7500 INR) or HD5770 (8500 INR) for more future proofing

A 500 watt psu with 22a available to the +12v rail ?
A 305 watt Dell can do that.

there isn't much difference between the gtx 260 and gtx 460 768mb overall and the gtx 260 is relatively cheaper so go for the gtx 260.

There are 2 generations of video cards in front of the gtx260. That is old tech now.

Also the 5770 uses far less amps on the 12v rail then gtx260.

As i mentioned above "Gtx460 768 Mb is the best choice. If not buy the 5770.
I would not even consider buying anything else.

maybe.but as you can see on the chart the differnce between the gtx 260 and the 5770 is equal to the dfference between the 260 and the 460 768mb.If you are on a budget the gtx260 is the best choice and as for dx 11 until it becomes a standard like dx9 its pretty much useless.and as for it being 2 gen old there s always something new released.Hell now nvidia has releasedthe 50 series and the gtx 460 is already becoming one gen old and it was only released this year.IMHO its still a good card which can max out majority games out there.

so what now go with ati 5770 or gtx 460 768mb ??
or
all of you say my psu is not good enough so now i think about ati 5670 or nvidia gts 450 because my budget is not good enough to buy a psu along with gpu but later in future i will buy one good brand psu but not now

That is a local PSU easily available in the market and cheap. It doesn't even provide the rated output.
For a reference it is something like $25 for a 500W PSU. I would be worried! :p 
Even worse than Rosewill!

The 5670 you mentioned does not need any 6pin power. But in terms of performance its much slow(though not for your resolution). The price of the GTS 450 here is absurd. For only 300rs more u get a HD5770 which is much better.

For your resolution i would definitely go with the 5750... anything more is not worth the extra money

A 5670 will handle most games fine at high settings without AA at that resolution.However if you want better performance, the card that fits you is the HD 5750, considering the limitations of your PSU.
