Need help upgrading from a GTS 450

Hello all, I need some help upgrading my NVIDA GTS 450. My rig has an AMD Phenom II X4 processor, a Biostar A780L3G mother board, a Corsair 450W power supply, and of course my NVIDIA Geforce 450 GTS video card.

I know my mobo isn't that great, but I'd like to make upgrades without changing it just yet. I can play games fine the way it is (BF3 can run on high while maintaining pretty decent fps), but I'd like to make an investment for the upcoming years as the GTS's are pretty low on the list. I thought about a GTX 560ti but I've been told that the GTX 460 is better. I am also considering just waiting for the next series to be released and worrying about it then.

I know I will need to upgrade the power supply, but I'll wait until I choose a card first.

I'm also going to be running on a 32inch HDTV (1920x1080 resolution).

I don't wanna break the bank on this, so ultimately I'm looking for a reasonable upgrade to my current setup that should last for a while. I'm pretty new to the custom PC scene so any help will be much appreciated. Thanks!

    GTX560 Ti is better than GTX460. the story is can be a bit different though between GTX560 (non-Ti) and GTX460. what is your budget? personally i will wait a bit until next gen card coming out before making an upgrade.
  2. I'm trying to keep it below $250. I think waiting is the best idea too but I just wanted to get some outside, more professional, opinions. Thanks for the feedback!
  3. with that budget you can look for GTX560 Ti or HD6950 2GB
