I bought an Asus ENGTX460 768MB Top ( Upgraded from 8600GTS....) 2 days ego and now iam diseperatly doubting my purchase after a freind's comment that i should had bought the 1gb intead or a ati 6850 which performs better. After reading a couple of reviews iam still confused. I play games at 1600x1050 ( 22'' monitor) . I prefer not to lower the setting sand keep them at maximum level exept the AA depending on games(2 AA is ok for me). I bought the video card for 169$ canadiens. I prefer staying below 200$ or not much more. The ati Hd6850 is at 190$ and GTX 460 1GB is at 209$ in my region. I deseperatly need an advise .
Considering my specs (i know that the gxt 460 1gb and ati 6850 are better)do you think the Asus ENGTX460 768MB overcloked is enough for 1600x1050 (IAm not planing chaging my monotor) or i should return it and get the gtx 460 1GB - ati 6850. Iam a big fan of Total War series and the Shogun 2 is about to come. I also planing to play Starcraft 2, Battle field :Bad company 2, dead space 2, well all sorts of games that are already out and the games to come this year.
CPU: Dual Core 2.13 (Overcloked to 2.6GHZ)

Hello and welcome to the forums
Both GTX 460 and HD 6850 are overkill for your current resolution.Cards like
HD 5770/GTS 450 can handle games fine.
I'd recommend upgarding your CPU instead and add an extra GB of RAM.(especially since you want to play RTS games which benefit from a quad core CPU)
