GTX 470 or GTX 460?

Lately, the price of GTX 470 has dropped noticeably. In Newegg there are lots of 470s priced at $250, something like $40 dollars more than MSI Hawk GTX 460 which is priced at $215 @Newegg.

Is it now still worthy to buy a GTX 460, or just save more money and go for 470?

I'd also would like to ask a recommendation of GTX 470 with cool and quiet performance if any of you know.
Thanks.

  1. The 470s and 480s are droping in price because 570/580s are taking their place. I think it's a good time to get a 470, if it is enough for you.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127513 This one has the best cooling solution and is best for overclocking, so the best performance. It runs quite as well.

    There are cheaper options like:
