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.

Not worth it as its just not that much better, unless all you want for $180 is a few FPS. 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.

not worth it imo, larger upgrades usually will have at least a 100$ gap inbetween 1 card and another.
