My question is, I know that processor cores are very important, which the 470 has more of, but am wondering since the 470 is a more powerful card and they are both superclocked, why does the 460 have a higher core clock? Thanks for your help.

It is a different more energy efficient GPU therefore it allows for higher clocks before it gets to hot.
Ah, so that is what the EE means. Well, I am correct to assume the 470 will still preform better right?
Yes although most GTX460 can overclock close to it, then the 470 can overclock as well.
One last question before I head of to work, will my Phenom II 955 BE OC'd to 3.8 mhz bottleneck a 470 or perhaps a 6870? I have 4 gigs of 1600 DDR3 ram and a 750w antec psu also, I think those pieces are fine.
It will be a good match at that speed! Your ram and PSU are fine!
