Hello, i was wondering if a GTX 460 is noticable better than a 5830. Also i was wondering if it is better, would it be able to work on my build. Gigabyte 880G mobo, Corasair 850W psu, 8gb gskill ripjaw ram, AMD 955 blackedition, and i have a OZC vertex II sdd and a WD HDD? Sorry if this is worded badly! Thanks in advance! - Raham

simple answer, yes and yes although its not going to be leaps and bounds over the 5830, it will certainly have more potential and the 5830 was a huge fail in general imo, it has worse performance then the 5850 with more power consumption, wtf?

it's only a bit better than the 5830, and yea as jjb stated, 5830 was a huge fail, still in some games it beats 460, but when you compare OCed 5830 to OCed 460, 460 wins hands down

yeah I agree with shrkbay, and depending on res, etc. I'd at least go with a gtx 560ti or greater as an upgrade, upgrading to a 460 is hardly worth it imo

yeah.. and now the 560 non Ti comes out which is exact 460 on a new chip, so the 460 production may be stopped, and you won't be able to SLi with a new 460 in the future, what GPU do you have now?

if you're going to upgrade a screen to 1920x1080 then you should go for a GTX 560 Ti SOC or AMD 6950, otherwise you won't see almost any improvement from 5830 on 1680x1050 to GTX 460 1920x1080...
