GTX 460 (768 Meg) to a 6850 worth $55

I can get a GTX 460 (768 Meg) for $130 after MIR or a 6850 for $185. Would the difference in the cards be worth $55?

I do most of my gaming at a 720p resolution. My PC is a Phenom II x2 @3.3 ghz.

    the GTX 460 768mb is more than enough for 720p... you'd want a card /w 1gb memory if you played 1080p + up...

    the R6850 is the better card... but @ 720p you'll be fine... and $55 is a great save

    core i5-750 @ 3.8ghz | a-data ddr3 2000 4x2GB @ 1.9ghz
    asus p7p55d-e pro | xigmatek hdt-s1283 | ocz vertex 2 60GB
    seagate barracuda 2x80gb (raid 0) | wd caviar black 640gb sata3
    antec 900 two | corsair hx650w | radeon hd 4870 512mb @ 800mhz/1ghz
  3. 6850 is slower than 5850.
    So, going from GTX460 to 6850 is not worth at all, keep your card, buddy. :)
  4. Thanks for the replies.

    I don't have either of these cards yet. I currently have a 512mb 3870 that I'm moving to secondary PC, but it sounds like the $55 difference isn't worth it. I have my PC hooked up to a 720 TV, so I don't have much need of higher res in the foreseeable future.
