im looking to buy a new graphic card as i feel that my 8800gt is kinda of out of date if you could say that
and im only looking to buy a new graphic card as if i was to buy a new cpu or psu then i may as well save up for a rig

System spec

Pentium Dual Core E6700 3.2GHz http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=42809
Gigabyte G41M-ES2L http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=...
TruePower Trio 550W http://www.antec.com/Believe_it/product.php?Type=Mg==&i...

allso i can't overclocking the cpu as not matter if it's under or over clocking the pc will fail to start and auto reset bios

More about : gtx 460 560

what is your monitors resolution? overall I'd spring for a 560 if you plan on playing at 1080p and you can carry it over to a future build and possible sli it. Of course you can do the same with the 460 but if you plan on playing at 1080p then I'd go for the extra muscle found with the 560ti

yeah for that resolution the gtx 460 768 mb will do good or even a 5770, your cpu will do pretty good but in games that utilize quads you will be held back but Id say the gtx 560 ti would be a bit overkill for your cpu

Well a 768 is ok for some resolutions but I personally own the 1gb version and already got a few games even though not very popular can already cripple this card at that ress. Gothic 4 is a terrible hog across the board. Go with the 1gb no matter what for the long term and the gtx 460 can be overclocked enough to perform the same as the gtx 560ti depending on the clocks. 900mhz gtx 460 = 800mhz gtx 560

yeah i mean 1 gig will no doubt be better but OP said hes using 12X10 so I think the 768 mb woudl fair fine but it is true that the 1 gig can be oc'ed to match the 560 or gtx 470 levels

Why bother with the 768 version when I already max out my 1gb version at that ress. 90-100% gpu load and 30% on the memory controller, all the vram used and heavy load on the ssd as well cpu. I do need to overclock my cpu though :whistle: 
The 768 version is far from future proof in the long run and is likely going to be the last card from nvidia with that amount of vram.

yeah your right but I figured since the OP said he was playing at 12X10 that the 768mb would be fine, but if were in the same situation I'd spend the extra 20-30 bucks and get the 1 gig no doubt... Overall the 1 gig is a much better value if the OP plans on using this GPU into the future...
