Upgrade to Radeon HD 6870 form Gtx 460 Tags: Graphics Cards Gtx Radeon Graphics Product Last response: July 17, 2012 8:49 PM in Graphics & Displays Share clp July 17, 2012 8:22:43 PM Hey guys, I'm thinking about upgrading my GPU to a Radeon 6870 from a MSI GeForce GTX 460. I was wondering if it will be worth the upgrade, and if I could see what kind of differences I would get. My max budget is $180, and I have a i3-2100.

Irecently went from a 4870 512mb to a 6950 2Gb and it made most games go from high to ultra which was not amazing and was a much bigger upgrade. m 0 l 17seconds a c 639 U Graphics card July 17, 2012 8:39:57 PM Not worth it. An overclocked GTX 460 is about the same and gives you the PhysX option. In your budget range, you might be able to bump up to a GTX 560 Ti.
