Hi, I game at 1440x900 and I'm wondering if a gtx 460 1gb will give me adequate performance until the 600 series nvidia card dome out. I heard the 600 series will be a huge improvement.

So it basically 460 now and 670(???) later or 570 now and nothing later.

Well then you might have to wait next year for Nvidia's new generation gpu's Kepler.
Not only that you might have to wait 2 months for manufacturers to make OC versions of the Kepler.
Fermi has a wonderful selection already but i cant guarantee you will be happy with a fermi due to the fact of performance numbers for Kepler have not been revealed.

At that resolution, your gtx 460 will be enough for a year. You should be able to max everything out without any problems. a 570 at that resolution would be a complete waste of money. Hell, the next upgrade to the 570 (a 670 i guess) would still be complete overkill.

Unless you are planning on upgrading your monitor to 1080p, I wouldn't worry about it. When the next generation of cards come out about 8 months or so, upgrade then, because games will probably be much more demanding on a gtx460. Even then, you don't need to get the 670 (upgrade to the 570). Heck, if you are finding that the card you have now is not sufficient enough for you, get a GTX 560 or a 560ti if you want to spend another $40 on it.

Okay, I think that's what I'll do. I'm getting the recert sparkle 460 768mb. It has a lifetime warranty that's the only reason I'm going recertified. For $100.
