Need help deciding on a new gpu

I have a $150 budget ... The few I've been looking at are MSI GTX 460 TwinFrozr Super OverClocked Video Card, EVGA GTX 460 SE, EVGA GTS 450 SC...
Oh and also I play at a res of 1280x1024

Upgrading from a XFX 9600 GSO 768MB DDR2,
My System Specs:
Core 2 Duo E4600 2.40 Ghz
XFX Geforce 9600 GSO - 768 MB DDR2
4GB PC-5300 DDR2 Ram
650W Ultra PSU

  1. At that resolution anything more than the GTS450 is an overkill but the MSI GTX460 would be good if you plan on upgrading monitor during the lifetime of the card.
  2. Well I want a card that'll last 2-3 years...But I don't think I'll be changing my monitor...
  3. The MSI GTX 460 since it is the most powerful is going to last the longest before upgrade. Here are some benchmarks at your resolution http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/GeForce_GTS_450_Cyclone_OC/7.html
  4. Only difference with the benchmark is the MSI GTX 460 is 768 MB....So the best investment would be the MSI ?
    This is the one I'm looking at:

  5. Best answer
    The GTX460 768MB is faster than the GTX460 SE. Looks good at that price.
  6. Okay so MSI GTX 460 final decision, thank you very much rolli59 :)
  7. anyone going to consider a radeon 6000 series? Their more energy efficient and therefore have more overclocking room.
