Hi...
I'm planning to upgrade GPU from HD4850 512Mb to GTX460 1GB/ GTX470 1.28GB/ HD6870 1GB

In India prices are as follows:
Asus HD6850 1GB = Rs.11500
MSI GTX460 1GB Cyclone = Rs.11500
Asus GTX460 1GB DirectCU = Rs.12500
Asus HD6870 1GB = Rs.14000 (Not in ready stock...need to wait for a week)
MSI GTX470 1.28GB = Rs.16500 (This card is out of stock now...And they are not planning to get new stock in near future..)
Saphire HD6870 = Rs.17800
Asus GTX470 1.28GB = Rs.18500



I am planning on buying a single card.... no provision for CF/ SLI, as my motherboard is Hybrid SLI(nVidia 720a). And i won't do multi-monitor setting in near future.
After reading lots of reviews, i came to think of Asus GTX460 DirectCU (not the TOP version) as good. But was in doubt, if it would be good for 1920x1080 gameplay.
Games i play includes Metro 2033, Left 4 Dead2, NFS HP, Darkest of Days, Battlefield Bad Company 2, Sacred 2, Oblivion, FallOut 3, etc.

Processor: AMD Phenom II X2 550 BE @ 3.1GHz
PSU : CoolerMaster Silent Pro M600
Monitor : Asus VH242H (1920x1080)
M.board : Asus M3N-H/HDMI
Memory : 2x2GB DDR2 800MHz

Please help me decide...

The DirectCU is a great choice but the Cyclone also has very nice cooling if you want to save a bit of money. The GTX 460 will do quite well at 1080p and can overclock a very large amount as well(usually 30%+.)

The GTX 470 is better of course but given the prices you listed I'm not sure it is worth it.

If you aren't gonna push too far, a GTX 460 would do good.
