In raw performance, the Geforce 480 is the most powerful, but also uses the most power. The 570 is a balance of power and power usage. The 460 is low power usage but not as good performance. So I rank: 570 > 480 > 460.

1. 570
2. 480
3. 460 (Except you're really looking to the features)

570 is about the same as 480. Maybe a bit slower but it's worth it to get a 570. 480 is a hot and inefficient card, so I don't recommend it. The 460 is slower than these and totally different class, so if you're not looking to the extra features that this one has, You'd better avoid it.

This is what you want, so yeah my job is done :lol:

I say don't bother with any of those. Wait a week. Then get the HD7870 or HD7850. It's not like there are any major titles coming out until D3 in mid April anyway.

They rank like in this way:-
1)570
2)480
3)460
570 is quite fine regarding performance over any of the listed cards 480 and 460.
570 will be best bang for the money per performance.

500 series is only for the best performance gaming and 400 series are going to be outdated soon when 600 series launches.
