Hello,
Right now I have a alieanware aurora, sporting a Radeon HD 5670. It's been doing ok for me so far, but i want to upgrade so I can run some higher end games better. What would be a good choice to play something like Skyrim or Battlefield 3?

out of those two, do you think the 460 is better? I'll admit, i haven't heard much about either of them. Someone suggested a nvidia geforce 560 ti also

I actually just looked it up, and ya it's a bit out of my price range. i also looked at teh 550 ti and it's a lot cheaper. It's even a little cheaper than the 460 but I'm trying to hit a sweet spot in between value/quality. Right now my card is working ok, so I don't want to go too cheap and basicalyl spend money on little to no improvement, but i always don't want to break myself on a graphics card

What's your budget?

Some HD 6850's (on par with GTX 460) can be had for around $130-140, which either of those would out perform a GTX 550 Ti.

I compared the 550ti and the 460 and it looks like the 460 has a better texture fill rate, memory interface and memory bandwith
